With so much of our time spent in the nursery during the last 3 weeks, it made sense to write about Kairo’s World and her “Home”
In part 1 of the Nursery Reveal, I discuss “the heart” of the nursery … the Stokke® Home™ system.
I was looking for nursery furniture that would grow with my baby and that could be used for many years. I needed furniture that would look good and that would be functional in any space, whether it was a smaller or a larger room.
Stokke® is a trusted name and we chose the Stokke® Home™ because of the timeless design and the flexibility which it offers. Newly launched in South Africa, the gorgeous nursery collection is functional and stylish and fits into even the smallest nursery. Available in white and hazy grey, the collection is streamlined and the basic modern pieces work together to create the perfect nursery for every home.
Robert Myrene, the designer, explains the concept best ..
“A home is a place to be yourself, to be together with your family, to relax, play and to feel safe. There is simply no place like home. Our ration for the new nursery line came from this incomparable feeling we have when being in our own home.
We wanted to incorporate these positive associations in the design, and began by focusing on the global icon symbolizing “Home” – the shape of a house.
The concept was developed further into a functional, sleek line of nursery furniture made with premium quality and craftsmanship. The house shape is emphasized in the centerpiece of the collection; the Crib. We wanted the products to grow with your child, while transcending any trend and any period of time.”
The bed is the heart of the Stokke® Home™ nursery. Together with the cradle, the changer and the dresser, it offers countless possibilities for designing the perfect room for your newborn. The house shape turns this bed into a focal point for your child’s bedroom or nursery. Designed to grow with baby from birth to five years, the modular system allows you to choose the pieces that you need, when you need them.
Stokke® Home™ Cradle soothes your baby to sleep with a soft swaying motion. The soft, light textiles of the cradle give your baby plenty of airflow and a cozy environment to rest, sleep and dream. At nighttime, keep your baby close by your bed – the cradle´s small footprint allows you to fit it into any sized bedroom. The cradle´s light weight makes it ideal for daybed usage – just move it from one room to another to keep your baby close.
Stokke® Home™ Dresser provides storage space for their little clothes, toys and treasures. The Dresser is the perfect height for changing your baby when the Changer is attached. The spacious, soft closing drawers offer plenty of room and give easy access without letting your baby out of sight. Depending on how you arrange your room, the Dresser with Changer allows for both sideways and parent facing changing positions.
Stokke® Home™ Changer is flexible and attatches to the dresser, the bed and the cradle stand. The changer is a versatile component that can be used on top of the Dresser, Bed or Cradle stand, and attaches safely to all components. Protective sides and a padded mattress offer a safe and comfortable place to change your baby. The height of the Changer encourages eye-contact and you can choose both a sideways or parent facing position depending on the base unit and room setting. The included storage box keeps essentials close at hand and can be attached to any side of the Changer. When your child is older, the Changer transforms into a play table by simply turning the Changer upside-down and placing it onto the cradle stand.
Stokke® Home™ Bed Guard provides extra support for the little one when the side panel of the Bed is removed. The Bed Guard is made from solid wood and a robust steel bracket which will last for years.
Stokke® Home™ Roof is a soft, light canopy that shades your baby, creating a protective and peaceful place for your newborn to sleep. As your child grows the textiles encourage creative play by creating a roof on their little house.
Stokke® Home™ Tent creates a special playful place for your little one. A cozy hideaway to escape into their own private world, to read, play and imagine. With rounded windows for a view and roomy pockets to store favorite toys and special treasures – it is as functional as it is fancy. The neutral beige and white stripe pattern is versatile enough to compliment a myriad of nursery styles.
Stokke® Home™ from newborn to toddler …
In Part 2, on Wednesday, I will show you how I have used the Stokke® Home™ system in Kairo’s room, as well as reveal the rest of the nursery!
