Object Of My Affection: The Ultimate Crib
I have a friend whose architect husbandâ€™s dearest wish in life is a concrete chair. Oh, how he longs for his wife to rest her back, weary from schlepping their 5-month-old all day long, on the cozy concrete chair of his dreams. He also (unsuccessfully) tried to ban a glider from the nursery, citing the insult to his excellent taste. Though he did get some bizarre baby-hanging device from Europe rather than use a bassinet, which I must confess is pretty stylish.
This crib, then, is for all architects named Dieter (of course his name is Dieter) who are determined that â€œbaby stuffâ€ won’t take over their lives. Inspired by acrylic furniture pioneer Charles Hollis Jones, the beautiful Hollis crib from Nursery Works is made from non-toxic and recyclable Lucite and features curved edges, a fixed side rail and three mattress height levels. Not yet special enough? Itâ€™s a limited run, so each one comes laser-etched with a unique number.
