nisha-sawhney_manhattan-living_cribs_sns-design2_miguel When your home is filled with designer furniture named Mies, Noguchi, Starck, or Eames, what do you put in your nursery? It’s always been a challenge for high-style moms and dads, until recently. There’s Miguel, a high-end line of nursery furniture designed in NY and manufactured in Italy. Designer Miguel has crafted together a refined line of cribs, changing tables, and dressers that will hold their own against the designer furniture in the rest of your home. Available in Italian leathers or stain-resistant Crypton fabrics, the upholstery workmanship of Miguel’s cribs are reminscent of mid-century furniture details. Unique to the Miguel line is the Cassandra and Sandra baby cribs with their upholstered and hand-tufted details that are unlike any other crib on the market. Cassandra is available in 20 different Crypton color fabrics including its suede fabrics, and Sandra in six Italian leather or six Crypton suede options. Cassandra and Sandra pieces range from $3800 to $4950. Complimenting Miguel’s cribs are his changing table and dresser designs. Clockwise from top – the Malpensa changing table, E changing table, and the Milano changing table. Each piece has a companion dresser or changing table piece, and are available in a selection of different wood finishes and paint colors. nisha-sawhney_manhattan-living_cribs_sns-design2 Chic Crib by Miguel Miguel_cribThe chic Italian white leather and red (stain-resistant) Crypton crib-come-bed was a head turner at the Architectural Digest show. Father-to-be (again) Miguel Ruiz’s labor of love for his daughter Cassandra features European-style rails that descend when the baby is small and raise as the child grows until they pop out all together. There is also an American-version for those who can’t fathom the ease of lowering the sides versus re-adjusting the mattress. Ruiz created his eponymous company because he loathed the frilly frou-frou that is the staple of babydom, and wanted sophisticated furniture that would morph to the needs of a growing child. The collection includes a changing table with storage drawers that turns into a dresser with just the addition of a lid. nisha-sawhney_manhattan-living_cribs_sns-design3 Designer Baby Cribs and Nursery Furniture from Miguel For the lover of high fashion modern furniture that does not want the good looks to stop at the door of their baby nursery, you are in luck.
