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!

Spot On Square: Modern, Sustainable, and Generally Awesome {A Giveaway!}

I have a confession: working in the modern design industry has turned me into a complete design snob (I mean this in a very positive way, of course).  I used to wander into a furniture store and have no clue what the various pieces of wood, metal, and plastic staring back at me were saying.  However, being that I come from a background in fashion, I could tell you all about clothing – and pinpointing the standout items, brands, and trends was second nature to me.  Now that I’ve been in this world for almost a year I’m beginning to feel the same way about modern design – I can tell you all about the industry and about standout items and brands.

Which is why I’m so excited to share my passion for Spot on Square – this is a brand that truly stands out – it shimmers with awesome.

In the sea of modern design, Spot on Square’s line of simple, eco-conscious, quality products truly shine.  The company was started by husband and wife team, Bob and Nicole Springer (an industrial designer and teacher, respectively) who used their combined knowledge to break into the world of modern furnishings. Spot on Square began their line specifically for children but it has morphed into a line that is fitting for folks at any point in their lives – the products are so well-designed that they can carry you through a number of life stages – from bringing home a new baby all the way to retirement!

I’ll be honest – chances are that there are no babies in my future.  I already have two kids and well, my clock is quickly running out of time over here.  But when I look at the Spot on Square Roh Crib, I have to say that it almost makes me reconsider my decision. Almost.  Then I remind myself that having the opportunity to design a really cool, modern nursery is simply no reason to bring a child into this world.  And I almost convince myself.  Almost.  And let me just tell you – I’ve spent a lot of time shopping for cribs and other nursery decor (it’s a sickness, really) and I can tell you without hesitation that Spot on Square makes some of the coolest modern cribs on the market.

And don’t just take my word for it.  I have proof.

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.

Rachel Zoe’s Modern Nursery

Does anyone else watch that bananas show, The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo? Personally, I find it riveting, despite the way they all speak! Poor Jeremiah. He’s so cute and enthusiastic, but Rach and Rodge gave him the heave-ho right before Rachel’s due date. They then beg him to design baby Sky’s modern nursery in like five minutes (because of religious traditions, they don’t believe in getting ready for the baby until it has arrived, so he literally had the time she was in the hospital giving birth to get this together). Luckily, the Spot On Square Roh Crib was on Jere’s radar:

After pulling himself together during another quick room-appointing moment, the final product is beautiful, though Rachel may have to re-think her love of all things white when she sees what Sky’s sticky little fingers will do to it as he gets into Go-gurt and red popsicles!

Jere used taupe to warm up all that white, including the Olio Bed Skirt and Cobblestone Crib Set. Note how the cobblestone takes on a giraffe print look when paired with a stuffed giraffe. Rich textures were brought in via the shag rugs, poufs, and throws, and you know a Zoe baby has to have some Hermes around.

Yup, these are the little one’s shoes. I. Die. Check out those tiny white Gucci loafers on the end. They remind me of Herb Tarlick on WKRP in Cincinnati. Alright, I’m really old, I admit it.

Flickr Faves on Fridays: Fresh Nursery

I was flipping through our Fresh New Spaces Group yesterday and was struck almost immediately by a bunch of photos from member  michelle smith :: feminine modern. In particular, this nursery (I gotta tell you, I don’t have kids and 99% of the time I find nurseries a TOTAL snore), which is fresh, simple, and gives a nod or two to mid-century modernism:

Michelle also has a lovely blog and an Etsy shop, so check her out if you haven’t already!
