Modern baby products (such as furniture) are about much more than infusing your home with sleek style. They’re about functionality, practicality and safety. We at Decoist encourage you to do your research as you hunt for special items for your baby nursery. Here are some brands that have caught our eye, and they’ve likely caught yours as well if you’re creating a registry and beginning to shop for your little one. Enjoy browsing. We sure did!
If you’re building a baby registry, chances are you’ve come across the Scandinavian-style offerings of Stokke. Founded in Norway in 1932, Stokke remains committed to designing products “that are in the best interest of the child.” From strollers and car seats to high chairs and nursery furniture, Stokke items are sleek, modern, and most of all, designed to promote child development and parent/child bonding. Here are a few pieces to keep your eye on…
Designed by Peter Opsvik in 1972, the Tripp Trapp®Chair (shown above) grows with your child throughout his or her ages and stages. Plus, with accessories such as the tray and cushion, you can customize this piece for optimum comfort and style. The Stokke® Steps™ high chair seating system (shown below) is another multi-functional piece that transforms as your child grows, and it can accommodate everything from a baby bouncer to a preschool-aged child. As with Tripp Trapp®, this piece works in tandem with a range of accessories.
Stokke® Flexi Bath® is a foldable baby bath that your child can use from birth through age four. Plus, its foldable form makes storage and travel a snap! Choose from colors such as orange, pink, blue and white.
Stokke® Sleepi Mini transforms from a newborn sleeper to a full-fledged crib to a toddler bed that can your child can enjoy until he or she is 10 years old. Lockable wheels make it easy to transport this four-in-one crib made from solid beech wood:
Stokke also offers an array of nursery furnishings, including dressers and changers. Learn more about the Stokke® Home™ nursery line here.

The Merlin 3 Drawer Dresser in Fawn (shown above) is the perfect combination of white and wooden birch tones. The piece is also available in grey and birch if you’re in search of a darker hue. The Merlin 6 Drawer Dresser (shown below) provides optimal storage, thanks to ample drawer space that also delivers the same clean-lined look of the 3 Drawer Dresser.
Why buy a bassinet and a crib when you can buy a bassinet that converts to a crib? Crafted from materials such as Baltic birch plywood and eco-MDF and topped off with non toxic finishes, the piece prioritizes child safety, as well as eco-friendly design. Say hello to the Fawn 2-in-1 Crib System:
This Classic Crib is super sturdy, thanks to its construction of wood panels on a solid wood base. Plus, with the help of a conversion kit, it can transform into an equally stylish toddler bed when the time comes.
The Rhea Crib is a sleek blend of bright white and warm wood. Choose from birch or walnut to find the tone that’s just right for your nursery:
Sometimes it’s the little things that mean a lot. Accent your nursery with vegetable pillows! We’re fans of the cauliflower. Who doesn’t love a product made from soft baby alpaca wool?!

Say hello to the Ulm Dresser, which is inspired by mid-century design and features sustainably harvested birch plywood and green grade MDF made from 100% recycled/reclaimed wood:
This Join Organic Quilt in Blue reminds us of Vivienne Westwood’s iconic squiggle pattern a bit, so we’re definitely on board!
Round rugs are perfect for nurseries, especially if you want a soft place for baby to play but you’re not looking to camouflage beautiful flooring. This Trio Rug is a vibrant way to get the job done. It’s also available in pink, green and grey should blue not be your first choice.
