Baby furniture…obviously the most essential item in the nursery. But getting beyond choosing a finish and style often leads to design dilemmas and debates with your significant other from the get go. Mine went like this:
“Honey, what about this crib?” Answer: “No, I don’t like it.”
“And this one?” Answer: “It’s only okay.”
“Well, which one will you like?” Answer: “I don’t know, show me one and I can then tell you if I like it.”
So with clear, concise direction such as this (not), where does one start shopping? Well, you can add Mother Hubbard’s to your online list of research which is sure to please. MHC offers beautiful, quality kids furniture made in Canada with of over 20 non-toxic colorful finishes to choose from to create that custom look. While the majority of their designs are classic, the “Sweet Dreamz” collection’s straight lines competes with the popular contemporary look of other modern furniture manufacturers.
And keep in mind, they are not just about baby. In fact when the time comes to upgrade your toddler into that twin, Mother Hubbard’s collections will carry them well into their teen years with prices to fit your budget!
Buybuy Baby carries the MHC line here in the states. (Ahh, Pam and I have fond memories of schleping bags of baby accessories home from their NYC store in the 20’s). For those without a buybuy Baby nearby or outside of Canada, yes it’s disappointing that we can’t to head down to the store and start rattling their crib rails personally to check for sturdyness. However the owners of MHC do a particularly nice job of sharing answers to frequently asked questions and benefits (such as wood construction, self closing drawers, no assembly required) that in turn provide online shoppers with buying confidence.
