Of course you love your baby. But that doesn't mean you don't love design, too.
This Skip Hop Highline tote ($225) may come with a cushioned changing pad and bottle pockets, but you may well find yourself using the stylish bag once baby’s grown. Available at Crocodile Baby.
The angled legs and metallic feet of this three-in-one convertible DwellStudio crib ($599) make a basic piece of nursery furniture into a statement piece. (DwellStudio’s printed sheet sets could make anything look cute, though.)
A diaper pail may not be the most exciting accessory to invest in, but the Ubbi ($110) is at least a sleek, minimalist way to go. Bonus: the child-proof, odor-proof bins come in a wide palette of colours and patterns (we love the chevron!)
These ChewBeads (from $29.50)—silicone teething necklaces that are 100% safe for baby to gnaw on—come in bold colours and playful styles that are pretty enough to wear, even when you don’t have a little one on your arm.
Vancouver designer Anna Dhillon (pictured above) customized her own Bobbin Triple Play station ($699) in a palette of muted greys, and the manufacturers loved what she did so much that they put it into production (even Kim Kardashian is a fan). It’s still got kid-friendly details like a bobble tether and chalkboard insert—it just happens to not clash with your minimalist home. Win-win.
This Rockwell bassinet ($639), designed with heather-grey micro-suede, chrome and walnut, makes us jealous there isn’t an adult version.
This Mima Moon baby lounger ($500) converts into a toddler high chair and then a junior seat—all while looking sleek and futuristic.
It may look like a standard armchair, but the GusModern Sparrow glider ($1,099) is designed with late-night feedings in mind. And thanks to a minimalist, not-just-for-babies design, it’ll transition well into the living room one day, too.
The mint detailing of this Bingo change table ($515) makes it a sweet addition to any modern baby room.
The Bugaboo Buffalo stroller ($1,459) is designed in the Netherlands, and that’s no surprise: the ultra-efficient, effortlessly chic pram is exactly in line with Dutch design principles. Built with all-terrain wheels and a quilted interior, it’s ideal for taking your little design lover off-roading or out on the town in style.
