10 Baby Accessories for Design-Loving Parents
Of course you love your baby. But that doesn’t mean you don’t love design, too.
The angled legs and metallic feet of this three-in-one convertible DwellStudio crib ($599) make a basic piece of nursery furniture into a statement piece. (DwellStudio’s printed sheet sets could make anything look cute, though.)
A diaper pail may not be the most exciting accessory to invest in, but the Ubbi ($110) is at least a sleek, minimalist way to go. Bonus: the child-proof, odor-proof bins come in a wide palette of colours and patterns (we love the chevron!)
These ChewBeads (from $29.50)—silicone teething necklaces that are 100% safe for baby to gnaw on—come in bold colours and playful styles that are pretty enough to wear, even when you don’t have a little one on your arm.
Vancouver designer Anna Dhillon (pictured above) customized her own Bobbin Triple Play station ($699) in a palette of muted greys, and the manufacturers loved what she did so much that they put it into production (even Kim Kardashian is a fan). It’s still got kid-friendly details like a bobble tether and chalkboard insert—it just happens to not clash with your minimalist home. Win-win.
This Rockwell bassinet ($639), designed with heather-grey micro-suede, chrome and walnut, makes us jealous there isn’t an adult version.
This Mima Moon baby lounger ($500) converts into a toddler high chair and then a junior seat—all while looking sleek and futuristic.
The Undercover Glider
It may look like a standard armchair, but the GusModern Sparrow glider ($1,099) is designed with late-night feedings in mind. And thanks to a minimalist, not-just-for-babies design, it’ll transition well into the living room one day, too.
The mint detailing of this Bingo change table ($515) makes it a sweet addition to any modern baby room.
The Bugaboo Buffalo stroller ($1,459) is designed in the Netherlands, and that’s no surprise: the ultra-efficient, effortlessly chic pram is exactly in line with Dutch design principles. Built with all-terrain wheels and a quilted interior, it’s ideal for taking your little design lover off-roading or out on the town in style.
