I was totally looking for something else and stumbled across this stop me in my tracks cot and felt my shopping palpitation meter go into overdrive. “How much?” I thought excitedly and then I saw the chunky US dollar price and my heart sank – yet another beautiful design that is not sold in the UK.
Now I’ll admit, it was the playful, unusual, bound to be designer look that drew me in but it’s actually been built by expert craftsmen from superior quality non-toxic materials and finishes and is for the most part built from lacquered hardwood.
It comes in several colour combinations of white or natural and another colour like the orange pictured, or green, blue, red, or pink. You can get girl, boy, fragile, this end up, or bambino (hehe) appliques for it or you can also get a custom one. It doesn’t include the mattress and I know US sizes can be a bit funny so you’d probably need to order a mattress from there too. The toddler rail that you see on the right costs an extra $145 so bearing in mind that it’s $985 for the cot before you’ve even coughed over delivery charges, this is one cot with a chunky pricetag. But it is fabulous.
