Aristot

Nurseries can absolutely feel luxurious. If you want to splurge, consider this handcrafted bassinet. It features an adorable print of birds pecking at strawberries (Willliam Morris designed the pattern in 1883) and will add a joyful, but luxe aesthetic to a baby's room. It's also water-repellent, so spills are less stressful. The best part? Once the baby has outgrown the bassinet, his or her parents can convert the base into an ottoman or tabletop to pair with others pieces from Aristot's collections.
