Choosing a crib that is equally practical, safe, durable, AND stylish may be one of toughest decisions you'll face when putting together your baby's nursery. To help this decision-making process a little easier for you, we've gathered a range of chic modern cribs for those looking for a little mini-malist inspiration!
Most Stylish - Rockwell Bassinet by Monte
This handcrafted bassinet is the perfect combination of style and function. The walnut rocking feet allows you to gently rock-a-bye your little one at night, as they sleep comfortably in the soft upholstered basket. Did we mention that it's detachable too? Available in minimalist-approved colours of white suede and heather grey, this crib will for sure make a stylish addition to your baby's modern nursery.
Most Practical - Stokke Sleep Mini by Stokke
Thanks to Pinterest, this one's been stealing the hearts of many mothers (and fathers) around the world! As part of Stokke's signature four-in-one concept, the Sleep Mini is the perfect first bed for your baby and can be used for up to 10 years. The unique oval shape is designed to mimic a cosy nest-like environment, whilst the adjustable height positions allow parents to accommodate the changing needs of their growing child.
Most Tech-Savvy - SNOO Smart Sleeper by Happiest Baby
Does your baby have trouble sleeping at night? Technology might have the answer for you. The SNOO Smart Sleeper is designed to boost sleep by automatically responding to the baby's needs with appropriate rocking motions and soothing white noises (e.g. soft rain, womb sounds). With your baby safely tucked inside the SNOO sack, you might just be able to finally get a full night's sleep again!
Most Innovative - Vetro Crib by Nursery Works
Staying true to the philosophy of 'less is more', Nursery Works' original provides a glimpse into the future of minimalism. Instead of using conventional wood, the Vetro Crib is the first of its kind to be made out of 100% recyclable, non-toxic clear acrylic. The transparent sides of the crib gives you an unimpeded view of your child, whilst also giving them an impended view of the world.
Most Affordable - moKee Mini Cot by moKee
Now that we're done dreaming about super cool, clear cribs and savvy self-rocking technology, perhaps it's time we start thinking more realistically, especially in terms of cost. The moKee Mini Cot is a perfect example of affordable minimalist-style cribs. The Scandinavian-inspired design is available in a range of colours, and can be customised to suit any nursery. Additionally, the side panels can easily be removed and extended to accomodate your baby as they grow from ages 0 to 3.
