Sleeping like a Dane, in a Leander crib or bed

After so much beautiful Danish design, the last pick for today is just as wonderful.  I am introducing you to the Leander crib and the Leander bed by Danish company Leanderform.  The design is very simple, but oh so classy looking!  So yes, their products perfectly excel at representing the company’s  motto of creating furniture that combines beauty, functionality and esthetics.

The hanging cradle has an amazingly calming effect on babies, because baby can set in motion by himself, and thus mimick the movement in the uterus that it is already used to.  This means more sleep for parents and infants, as you probably won’t be woken up in the middle of the night by a crying baby that wants to be rocked and held all night long.  Now that is beauty and functionality in perfection!

Unfortunately though, these beautiful products do not seem to have reached the US yet, at least there is no retailer information on the Leander website and when doing research, I could not find any, either.  But UK seller Big Imagination has the whole product range, from cribs to bedding.  Though I could not find any information whether international delivery is available. In any case, EU-wide delivery is possible for sure. Leander cradle complete set with wooden stand £248.99, Leander crib £498.00.

Ok, I have decided on a topic for today, this time it’s all about vintage inspired design.  I found the decision a bit difficult, because I just love this bed, I think the design of this crib is absolutely amazing.  But then, it is difficult to actually purchase it, as I could only find Danish, Dutch and Norwegion online shops, who sell it.  Anyway, here are some pictures.

Arent the smooth, rounded lines just wonderful? This bed will certainly stand out from the crowd of standard cots.  Now to the specifics:  It is available in white and a few pastel colors (green, blue, yellow and pink) and converts from baby to toddler bed (sizes 70x110cm and 70x150cm), so it can be used for kids up to approximately 6 years.  The Kili bed is made of birchwood and colored with non-toxid paint.

Available at phistermarie.dk including baby- and juniorbed mattress and washable covers for 5.700DKK (Danish Crowns), which equals to 753.97€, as is said on their page.  The link I included is an English translation of the Danish text via Google, so don’t wonder why it reads a bit weird.
