Since our first editorial shoot, we have used one crib for styling, and one crib only. We love it for its clean lines, light wood, super low price tag, and its ability to play a supporting role to the space and bedding. So many cribs are either close to quadruple digits, heavy and clunky, or look part of an 80s furniture set. Sadly it's hard to find the Ikea SNIGLAR crib these days. Above, with our Seaweed Blush Crib Sheet. (UPDATE: IKEA brought it back!!) When I finally moved India into a real crib recently, I couldn't believe how limited my choices were for aesthetics I like in a reasonable price range. I've rounded up my top five finds for under $500, in case you are on the hunt too.
The Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib at $379 is what we ultimately went with ! I love the soft colored wood for a little girl and the sweet rounded feet. Currently out of stock but coming back October 1, 2020, and you can join the waitlist here!
I also love the Little Seeds Rowan Valley Linden Crib. There are great Jenny Lind style cribs out there that are far more expensive than this one at $322, and some that are less but feel like a cold hotel crib. Priced in the middle, this is a sweet choice, and comes in white as well.
It sure doesn't replace its sister SNIGLAR, but the IKEA GULLIVER is beautiful in its simplicity, and a winner at $119. It comes in natural (my preference) as well !
Another Babyletto, the Lolly 3-in-1 in natural and black feels different and fresh. It comes in all natural, natural and grey, and white and natural as well. Like the Hudson, at $399 I think its super high quality for the price ! Currently out of stock, but coming back September 3, 2020, and you can join the waitlist here.
Little Guy Comfort has a number of great products. Truth be told, the leg on this isn't perfection, but at $500 the Spot Children's Convertible Crib has beautiful wood planks, and converts to a GREAT bed post crib, which you can see here.
