Modern Mini: Great Baby + Kid-Friendly Designs

The last decade has seen a major shift in baby and kid furniture and designs as companies are recognizing that the modern aesthetic can easily translate to that market. Modern design lovers finally have options for their children that won’t make them cringe every time they step foot in their modern nursery.

There are so many great brands on YLiving to choose from that offer modern and classic designs you’ll love having in your home.

The crib is pretty much the most important thing you’ll bring into your child’s room – it’s certainly the largest, most notable piece. Spot On Square’s line of nursery furniture offers high-end, eco-friendly options for your tot, like the Roh Crib, which can even turn into a toddler bed with an optional conversion kit.

Oilo makes adorably stylish bedding to outfit your baby’s bed, like the Cobblestone 3-Piece Crib Set. The gender neutral set is simple with opposing patterns in universal white and tan colors. The patterns are chic and contemporary and don’t scream “baby!” when you walk in the room.
