It’s never too early to cultivate a sense of style, though whether a baby’s introduction to furniture and ambience has any permanent imprinting effect remains to be seen. Retailers have raised the bar in recent years with nursery and toddler furniture offerings. Safety, of course, remains at the top of the list. Just five years ago, for example, important changes were made to crib design with the outlawing of drop sides. Some people will argue that buying a crib or children’s furniture these days has more to do with parents’ styles and sensibilities. Those who like a continuity or design flow in their homes — indoors and out — will also opt for similar quality and styles in children’s furnishings. It is a category that has taken off, and retailers like RH Baby &Child (Restoration Hardware) and PB Kids (Pottery Barn) offer pieces that appeal aesthetically to their core customer. Specialty retailers like the Land of Nod and Galt Baby, which bills itself as “a modern baby lifestyle shop,” further the choices. When it comes to outfitting the rest of a nursery or child’s room (often with an eye to growing in the space), there are plenty of options for going the traditional route, retro or thoroughly modern, with dressers, storage and desks. Add to that the expansive choices for fun wall coverings and bedding (well beyond licensed characters), and a child’s room can be fun, colorful, engaging and inspirational. “In the past few years, I’ve seen nursery design elevate to a high level of chic,” says Los Angeles designer Betsy Burnham. “Clients are asking for better quality furnishings, rugs, lighting — even artwork — for their little ones, and we’re having a lot of fun with creative design details. European designs now are more accessible, she says, and manufacturers have recognized a hole in the marketplace — especially at the high end. “There’s no longer the idea of ‘Let’s just make do with my sisters’ crib,’ or ‘Let’s do the nursery last. ’ Or ‘We don’t need to frame that art. ’ The nursery (and child’s room) is just as hip and cool as the rest of the house. Increased demand for better style and quality has led exactly to those goods. It’s not difficult to find either high-end or well-constructed furniture in a choice of woods and finishes that are analogous to those in the prime real estate of a home. And with that, there has been an uptick in prices, as the upgrades are not designed to. Source: www.reviewjournal.com
