Begin Life In Style is the motto of Modern Nursery, and we agree! This online store was the brainchild of San Francisco mom Trish Meyler, who wanted to find a way to combine her internet background and love of modern design into a store that features items that are unique in style. And we think she succeeded!
We were impressed with the list of modern nursery designers that Modern Nursery carries, both the well known names and a few new faces - from Jenny Sauer's interesting wall prints to Christiane Lemieux's gorgeous crib sets, there is something for everyone interested in modern children's rooms. Of course, we are partial to the Boon Frog pod, pictured at right, which at $39.95 is rapidly becoming one of our favourite baby shower gifts. Check out a few of our other favourite finds at this online store, below.
Speaking of great shower gifts, these reversable polka-dot blankets are chic and affordable. Just $24.00, with colour combinations ranging from very bright (hot pink/orange) to very soothing (blue/green), there is a probably a blanket for everyone here! The Eva Foam Chairs and table demonstrate a marvelous attention to detail.
Each set of two chairs include one with the lighter color as the outer stripe and one with the darker color as the outer stripe. For example, on the Red/Orange, one item will have an orange layer as the outermost layer, and the other item in the set will have the red layer on the outside. At $139.00 for a set of two, they are very affordable, and hold up to 300lbs. We are big fans of furniture that can do double-duty, and the Modern Low Dresser is a great piece of flexible furniture.
At $699, it is a little pricy, but this is a piece that works equally well in a nursery, a child's room, or even as a television stand.
