crib notes

Tired of Target? Irked with Ikea? Looking for more than BuyBuyBaby has in store? Check out the Los Angeles based Muu Collection of baby furniture, designed in collaboration with the design firm One & Co. “The collaboration between Muu and One & Co was incredibly fruitful because One & Co shares our commitment to creating products that are both beautiful and highly functional," says founder and designer Robert Kwak. “In addition, the fact that we are all parents of young children gave everyone a common experience to draw from. Many of our most thoughtful design elements grew out of conversations about our own kids.” Trust me, these eclectic products are a far cry from your standard baby options; the designs are literally pieces of art and the decorative motifs are creative, whimsical and fresh. With inspiration from mid-century modern architecture, the punk movement, sneaker design and Kwak's own urban New York childhood experiences, Muu furniture can be personalized with hundreds of graphic, color and font options. The Sam Collection, composed of high-quality, durable, sustainable products, ranges from $495 to $1395 and includes cribs/toddler beds, dressers with/without changing tables, storage units, twin beds and nightstands (I want one for myself!) Look for this exclusive collection at local retailers (like Green Depot in NY) and on http://www.muukids.com.
