We love the design philosophy behind the Ninna Nanna Bassinet: "...we don't believe that bassinets should look like poufy 1980's wedding dresses." The 'we', in this case, are Ralph and Michelle Montemurro, who founded the Monte Design Group after the birth of their third child, because they just weren't finding nursery pieces congruent with the modern aesthetic.
We have been stalking the Ninna Nanna Bassinet on the Monte Design Group website for months, as they have had teaser photos but no real details posted. But the good news is, the Ninna Nanna is available this November!
Here is what we know: the basket is removable, the padded sides are microfiber, removable and machine washable, and come in stone or charcoal. The rocker base is solid wood, and the $395 price includes both the mattress and 2 fitted sheets. Oh, and we also know that this is a gorgeous, modern interpretation of a classic piece of nursery furniture. And thanks to Ralph Montemurro, we know that the name "Ninna Nanna" comes from an Italian lullaby. And now you know, too.
