SEED

I grew up in a home where Calder mobiles hung over baby cribs, danish dressers were doubled as changing tables and children were read bedtime stories while being rocked in a Herman Miller yellow rocking chair or nestled into the arm of a blue Womb Chair. In our home, good design was a worthwhile investment but it was never precious. It was never to be untouchable, roped off or for company only. Good design was meant to be integrated into our family of 5 children to climb on, rock in and make forts with.


 

Seed furniture, based here in L.A., is made and designed by master craftsman with the idea that each piece can be integrated with the changes of life. Doors and drawers open with a touch of a finger, and cabinets gracefully stack using a dovetail system. Besides being eco friendly (some pieces use reclaimed barn wood from Northern California) the pieces can be easily changed out by switching out doors. As they so, tongue in cheek (or groove) say, taking the furniture from "Diapers to Dewars"

Beautiful! I am not a fan of baby furniture and when it came time to decorate I used furniture that would work anywhere in our house. There's no reason why you HAVE to buy that changing table from pottery barn.

I love that Walnut Loft Dresser! Too bad it is WAY out of my price range.
