The Robin Crib by Oeuf is one of those white whales of the furniture world – hunting down a discount is about as difficult as hunting Moby Dick. However, there is a rare opportunity happening right now; this fabulously modern, sustainable crib is on sale for $499 in the birch/white and espresso/white options. If you’ve been hemming and hawing over which crib to buy, stop it and start clicking “add to cart” right now!

Well, take a few minutes; I understand, this is a big lifetime purchase for you! Here are some compelling reasons to choose this bed:

1. Space in a nursery is very tight; you need all the space-saving help you can get. The Robin Crib is set up so that the Robin Changing Station (sold separately) will fit right on top of it.

2. Your babe will only need a crib for so long, why invest hundreds of dollars in something you may only use for two or three years? Oeuf knows this, so they’ve designed the crib to grow with you. It converts  into your child’s first big-boy or big-girl bed!

This conversion capability is not only sustainable for the environment, but sustainable for your budget!

3. Oops, did I mention safety yet? The Robin Crib meets and exceeds all European, Canadian, Australian and US safety standards. Also, the low height makes it easy to lift child in and out; the mattress height can be adjusted to three positions.

4. Finally, and most superficially, this crib is gorgeous. It has clean and modern lines and it is sleek yet warm. It’s the perfect crib for discerning parents who prefer contemporary style.

Convinced? Hop on over to the sale and pick one up today! The sale will only go on while supplies last!

P’kolino Exclusive: Little Ones Art Easel in White

One of the toys that I remember most from my childhood was the awesome art easel that Santa brought me one year for Christmas.  On one side it was a dry-erase board, and on the other it was a chalkboard (where Santa left me a note, in his famous block handwriting). It was fabulous – one of the best presents that I ever received.

So, you can imagine that when I spotted the P’kolino Little Ones Art Easel here at Design Public, I found myself overcome with a little twinge of nostalgia. I immediately added it to the list of things I was planning to buy for my kids, pronto. I mean, c’mon – how great is this?

Thanks to our friends at P’kolino, Design Public will be the only place that you can find this easel in white.  Did I mention that you can also use the easel for puppet shows?  It even comes with two “coloring book scenes” that your kids can use as backdrops for their big production!  Oh, and it’s a complete steal at $89 and free shipping.

To celebrate this exclusive product, we also have two deals going on with P’kolino that you’ll only find at Design Public.  With the first option you’ll get 10% off of the Little Ones Table and Chairs (also in white) with the purchase of the easel.  Or, purchase the special deal that includes the Pkolino Little One’s Art Easel in white, the Little One’s Play Table and Chairs set in white, AND the Clothes Tree in White and you’ll get 10% off of the Table and Chairs and the Clothes Tree.

You really can’t go wrong with any of the products from the P’kolino line – I especially love the P’kolino Storage Chest with Chalkboard lid (hey – my kids like to color on everything already, so why not beat them at their own game!), the P’kolino Elephant Wall Easel, and the P’kolino Craft Table.

Like what you see?  Check out the entire P’kolino Line at Design Public.

Yip yip! Spot on Square is on sale! From Nov 8th to the 30th the Roh and Hiya Collections are 15% off*.

We are big fans of their clean modern designs, especially since so many pieces can easily transition a design-lovers drool worthy nursery to a super chic modern adult pad without any obvious overlap. So, when little Timmy grows up and moves out you can use his Roh Bookshelf in your living room or bedroom…a gift for him is a gift for you.

Of course, we are still drooling over the Spot on Square Roh Crib in the photo above.  Does it look familiar?  That’s because it is the same modern crib we posted about a few weeks ago as seen in Rachel Zoe’s home. Talk about a room with a view – this beautiful crib is every modern design loving parent’s dream – in place of the traditional wooden crib bars you’ll discover that the Spot on Square Roh Crib has half-inch clear acrylic.  (And don’t worry – it’s BPA free, phthalate free, and 100% recyclable!) Bob and Nicole Springer, the husband and wife team who founded the company and created this incredibly modern crib, believed that children should be surrounded by simple, eco-conscious, high-quality products that promote an appreciation for design.  To Bob and Nicole, we say – congratulations – mission accomplished!  So dive in now, because for a limited time, you can get these gorgeous products at a discount*!  Score!

Spot on Square sale pieces…Check it!

*Sorry, Eicho pieces are excluded from the sale and this promo cannot be combined with any other discount.

Designer Interview: Gitane Royce of Modern Playhouse

Today we’re having a chat with Gitane Royce of Modern Playhouse. These earth- and kiddo-friendly playhouses make cozy modern spots for children to play and imagine. Who knows, they just might inspire your kiddo to become the next Mies!
1. Did you have a playhouse growing up?
I grew up in a rural New England setting and didn’t have a playhouse as a child. Instead I constructed countless forts made in and out of trees, couches, tables, and with lots of blankets. Modern Playhouse is my way of bringing my nostalgic rural childhood memories to an urban setting. The simplicity of my
playhouses leaves plenty of creative room for a child to make a space all her own… as I once did!
2. How did the Modern Playhouse concept develop?
My child was born. I wanted to give her a space truly her own in our home and hacked out my first modernist influenced playhouse for she and her friends to play in. I do maintain that my 2 year old didn’t care about the architectural influence on her playhouse structure but my idea was to make the openings simple enough that she would appreciate her defining space but still have a connection to the outside world from her domain. In this case the outside world was our living room and us.
The inside/outside connection in modernist architecture is well documented and I think a nice concept for childhood on so many different levels. I began to get orders for playhouses from other families in our San Francisco community and the Modern Playhouse concept was born: simple modern design for kids, made from sustainable materials, easily assembled, and made in the USA.
3. How do kiddos respond to your playhouses?
With overwhelming cheer! The pre-walkers crawl in and pop themselves up at the window, the early toddlers open and close the door and sit at the table with delight, and the 2 yr+ kids
engage in pretend play or artistic endeavors, snack eating, house decorating, and everything a child does but all with a proud sense of place. It is so fun to watch the kids play in their houses! Child-led play is so nice to observe and so important developmentally for them.
4. Why do you think it’s important to produce earth friendly products for kids?
I truly believe that good product design for kids has a sustainable element…whether it be recycled, recyclable, repurposed, made close to home, or made from responsibly managed raw materials. I think as a parent and business owner on this planet I am COMPELLED to do the best I can to manufacture
my kids products incorporating elements from the above list. By manufacturing this way, my hope is that my products reuse traditional waste materials, create less green house gases, and ultimately get passed on to other families after they are no longer needed. Truly there is nothing more satisfying than offering handcrafted, non-toxic, and long lasting sustainable products to my customer. Ok, besides the sheer joy the houses bring to the kids!
5. What is in the future for Modern Playhouse?
As a one-woman show and a parent, everything happens at Modern Playhouse from my perspective… and to coin a phrase from my father-in-law… in the fullness of time. Having said that, I am delighted to launch the Puzzle House during Fall 2011. This house goes together…well, like a puzzle… and is
manufactured from sustainable domestically sourced wood products. The Puzzle has a slightly smaller footprint than my existing playhouses. The Modern Playhouse product line has a bright future with other exciting products to be released in Spring 2012!
We can’t wait to see what’s coming down the pipe from Modern Playhouse. In the meantime, shop all Modern Playhouse.

Joel McHale’s Hollywood Hills Home

I was already really jealous of Joel McHale’s wife, as she is married to one tall hilarious drink of water, but then in this month’s In Style I saw what a talented interior designer she is and I became even more jealous. She and her co-collaborator, Elizabeth Gordon both used to work for Kelly Wearstler. The result is a lovely home that’s got bits of regency and bravura modern all over the place. Here’s a peak at the McHales’ Hollywood Hills casa:

I spy DwellStudio bedding in their son Eddie’s room:
