When it comes to ‘starting out’ as a new parent and setting up a space for baby, it’s often the big ticket items that you tend to think of first…a cot, change table, drawers. If you search online, or take a trip to a big box baby superstore then it won’t take long (at all!) for your head to start to spin. Keeping this in mind, it was such a lovely surprise to meet The Baby Closet, and I wish they’d been around when I had my first baby! Talk about taking the hard work off you…they have already short listed the best! Offering a range of cots, bassinets and bedding; change tables and dressers; nursing chairs; rugs and decor – as well as quality baby clothing basics, wraps, swaddles and nappy bags – this is the perfect place to start your search if you are looking to put together a beautiful space for your new little one.
The Baby Closet offers a range of top quality brands from Australia, Europe, the UK and the USA including aden + anais, Britt, Claudine & Ash, Dwell Studio, Il Tutto, Leander, Lil Fraser Collection, Little Bamboo, Little Bonbon, Little Chipipi, OiOi, Olli & Lime, Olli Ella, Troll Sun and Weegoamgio. Three of our favourite labels, that we wanted to introduce you to today, are stocked at The Baby Closet and they are: Ubabub, Little Giraffe and Pink Lining.
I don’t think I have ever come across a range quite as unique as Ubabub, and recently, when we asked our Facebook friends to tell us what their favourite cot was, the Ubabub Pod came out on top as the most coveted! As well as stunning cots (which also convert to junior beds), this Aussie brand also have change tables, beautiful nursery artwork and their latest clever piece – wall shelves that allow you display your child’s favourite books like pieces of art. Ubabub pride themselves of creating safe, durable and ecologically friendly products, so you know that your purchase will be a quality one.
US label Little Giraffe launched in 2000 and the company’s unique, easy-care collections have delighted style-makers and discerning parents with a signature blend of comfort, quality, and convenience. Thanks to The Baby Closet, they are now in Australia. Little Giraffe has become known for creating the softest, most luxurious -yet practical- blankets, blankies and accessories available for babies & adults. Parents everywhere have fallen in love with Little Giraffe’s incredibly soft, ultra-plush machine-washable products. Many of Hollywood’s most well-known mums & dads, such as Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Katie Holmes, Salma Hayek, Halle Berry, Nicole Richie, Rebecca Gayheart, and Jessica Alba, have all welcomed home their newborns with Little Giraffe’s Chenille & Luxe collections. Super easy to wash and long-lasting, this range is perfect for your little snuggler.
And finally, starting out making hand-stitched baby bags for family and friends, UK brand Pink Lining has grown into an international business. The Baby Closet stock their latest sweet and quirky designs of nappy bags and baby bags…just perfect if you are after something practical, yet a little unique! Pink Lining has found itself on the pages of Vogue and Tatler and an office in Notting Hill fits perfectly with their aesthetic – cute prints, sweet designs and gorgeous detail.
