>> Crib & Bassinet Stores on Marketplace

We love the look and quality of many modern cribs on the market right now (Netto Collection, Oeuf, Nurseryworks) but the truth is that many people—especially those saving for a new baby—can't afford a crib that costs as much as these designers are charging. Thankfully, there are good options on both ends of the price spectrum…

Moderne Crib from the Netto Collection, $1,600

Netto Collection (Online): Nice stuff, with lacquered finishes and white ash construction. After introducing the Loft and Moderne collections a few years back, David Netto expanded his high end collection, introduced a new lower priced collection called Cub (which can be found at and sold his crib company to Maclaren.

Kalon Studios Ioline Crib from Zac and Zoe, $1,400

Zac and Zoe (Online): An emphasis on service and free shipping is what sets Zac and Zoe apart. Their site is a great place to browse all the best in modern furnishings for the nursery: cribs, rocking chairs, and tables, desks, and chairs.

NurseryWorks Aerial Crib from Small Concept, $1,240

Small Concept (Georgia/Online): With free shipping for all orders over $100, and lots of fun stuff to choose from, this Georgia boutique caught our eye. They have a nice selection of modern cribs and beds, including designs from Nurseryworks, Oeuf, and DucDuc.

Moda Crib from Room & Board, $1000

Room & Board (Various Locations/Online): Room and Board does not design down for kids. We think their childrens' offerings really share the sensibility of the whole store's aesthetic. It's not girl-y or boy-ish, it's just nice simple furniture.

Oeuf Sparrow Crib from Gozia Home, $690

Gozia Home (Online): They have some unique items, including a large selection of modern cribs. Prices aren't cheap, but they carry a number of cribs that transform from crib to toddler bed.

Land of Nod (Chicago/Online): Land of Nod has a beautifully put together collection of traditional, fun baby and children's furniture and accessories, which are simple in design and calming for the senses. Their stores are mainly in the Chicago area, but you can see them online and pick up their catalogs at any Crate & Barrel store.

Bam Crib from Weego Baby, $585

Weego Baby (Los Angeles/Online): A store for the "stylish modern baby," Weego Baby was created to compliment Weego Home. They have a nice collection of simple cribs ranging from $500 to $1,600.

Modern Espresso/White Crib from, $380 (Online):'s Kids Section always has $2.95 shipping for any size or weight, and their prices are 80% off the retail. Our experience looking for things on Overstock has been a little bit hit or miss, but you might find just what you're looking for.

Target (Various Locations/Online): Since Target adopted the DwellStudio line, it's become a go-to source for modern baby gear, with cribs in the low hundreds. We posted some negative reviews of the DwellStudio's 1st edition of Target furniture, but they've tried to work out some of the kinks in a 2nd edition of products. If you've had first-hand experience with the line, give us your feedback in the comments.

Gulliver Crib in white from IKEA, $100

IKEA (Various Locations/Online): For Scandinavian style on a budget, IKEA can't be beat. Readers have recommended the Gulliver and Leksvik Crib.
