Our favourite nursery furniture pick
Summer seems to be a really popular time for babies, although they are born at the end of the school year, in the early months the lighter nights make things so much easier. Both of my little ones are summer babies and it was so much easier feeding at 4am when the light was already coming through and the cool breeze through the window was refreshing after the stuffy evening air. With summer almost upon us, therefore, the Custard & Crumble team have put together our favourite collection of nursery furniture for a summer baby. Of course perhaps the most important item of baby furniture has to be the cot. We absolutely love the Nestor Sleigh cot in white. This cotbed has been built to last forever using the best in traditional British craftsmanship and modern design to create a piece of luxury nursery furniture of unrivalled quality and beauty. This cot bed has been handcarved from solid cherry wood and handpainted in a white lacquer. The cot bed has three adjustable base positions as well as a drop down rail. Once your little one is approximately two years old the cot bed can be transformed into a toddler bed and then later a sofa bed meaning this luxurious piece will last for years to come. The Nestor Dresser in white is new to the Custard & Crumble collection and is a beautiful addition to the cot bed. The drawers are of traditional dovetail construction ensuring they have the strength to last. The middle and bottom drawers are also fitted with concealed soft close runners to prevent small fingers from being trapped! We love the Leto Baby Changing Mat shown here on top of the Nestor dresser. At only £95 this is a gorgeous piece of luxury to add to the nursery. The changing mat is covered in soft velboa and comes complete with two inserts and a pillow. All fully washable of course to account for those inevitable accidents! To complete the clean white nursery look the belle armoire from Bambizi works beautifully with the Nestor dresser and cot. The superb attention to detail in this luxurious piece makes this a treasured item for years to come. The beautiful full length door houses a full length hanging rail and 3 adjustable shelves. The full length adjustable shelving on either side of the rail creates the perfect space for shoes, toys and other accessories. Finally, a nursery would not be complete without a rocking chair. Imperative for those middle of the night feeds a nursing chair does not need to just be a feeding chair. We all know that reading to our children gives them the best possible start in life therefore a comfortable rocking chair makes the perfect location for a cosy bedtime read. We absolutely adore the opulence rocking chair. The smooth rocking motion of this chair will make those bedtime feeds so much easier and the simple yet elegant style means this piece will work in all rooms of the home long after midnight feeding is over!
