contemporary & classic nursery furniture

Pottery Barn Kids
A great choice for people who like the "Pottery Barn" look -- sleigh cribs and coastal cottage-style furnishings. Constructed of various combinations of soft woods (pine), hard woods (poplar, rubberwood), MDF (fiberboard) and veneers.

Land of Nod
The nursery furnishings in this store remind me a lot of Pottery Barn Kids, only the prices seem to be a bit lower. Originally an independent children's store owned by a young couple in Illinois, it is now partnered with Crate & Barrel.

Restoration Hardware Baby & Child
This sophisticated baby and children's furniture collection kicks the quality up the quality a notch with cedar-lined and dovetailed drawers, mortise-and-tenon joinery and hardwood construction (with birch and poplar veneers).
Shipping: USA (including US Territories & PO Boxes) & Canada

Bratt Decor
A more upscale version of Pottery Barn Kids. Most of their stuff is pretty pricey, but their popular Dick & Jane cottage-style collections won't give you as much sticker shock. Desperate Housewives' Marcia Cross chose the Dick collection in white for her twin girls. For those who are going for a more vintage look, Bratt also makes a wrought iron crib.

Corsican Classic Iron Baby Crib MiniTots
There isn't much in the way of high-quality vintage style baby furniture on the market today, but Corsican's line of handcrafted wrought iron cribs, changing tables, beds and accessories is a notable exception. After seeing my fair share of overpriced, shoddy cribs made of plywood, MDF and cheap woods unconvincingly stained to look like mahogany or walnut, I opted for a Corsican Classic Iron #1682 in glossy antique white from Minitots for my own son, and I absolutely love it. They offer free shipping on their Corsican cribs. The store also carries Bratt Decor.

Rosenberry Rooms
This upscale store has something for everybody. Modernists will love the collections by Oeuf, Ooba and Argington. Those looking for something vintage will love the iron cribs by Corsican and Bratt Decor. If you're going for a coastal cottage style, you've got several nice options. Seabrook Classics' line is handcrafted in South Carolina's low country. The Relics collection can be custom painted with any Benjamin Moore paint color of your choice. Newport Cottages is another cottage-style brand.
Free Shipping on orders over $100 (surcharge on larger items).

Posh Tots
"If Pottery Barn Kids and the Land of Nod have captured the hearts of upper-middle-class families, Posh Tots has cornered the market on moms of mean," says the Star-Telegram. Customers have included Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Jessica Parker and Princess Caroline.
