If you want a true heirloom look in your nursery, you should opt for an iron crib. Not only are they classically beautiful, but they are very durable. Clients love them because they take up a small footprint. With the very open sides, you really get to show off your crib bedding. Doesn’t the Matteo set above look so innocent and beautiful? Take note that I don’t suggest using a true heirloom as odds are that they are not up to 2012 safety standards. But there are several vendors who can give you the same look by putting your concerns at ease.
Now $1320 might seem like a lot for an iron crib. Yes it is if you are just getting white. But if you want a truly unique crib to match your decor, Corsican has over 30 color and finish options available on their pieces such as gloss, matte, glazed and distressed.
This crib has an almost identical look to the Corsican above for half the price. The only catch is that it only comes in one color choice, white. The pro is that there is no lead time since it is in stock and not custom made to order.
