The Ooba Bassinet Makes Me Want to Make Babies
One thing I’ve been seriously wanting to do is give a shout out for my awesome sponsor, 2Modern.com. They are my dream sponsor because it is so easy and fun to talk about their products and mean every word I say. So today, I dip into the bag of 2Modern goodies to find some serious design nuggets.
Before I go any further, I’d like to say that the Ooba Bassinet is a bit of a selfish pick for me to put on Design Crack. I’ve been hunting for good baby furniture design objects ever since my wife and I found out we were expecting (That’s right, ladies. I have a baby due, so no more advances please!). We have and extremely small apartment in San Francisco, and our style is Victorian mixed with a modern-ish sensibility. The bent plywood frame of the bassinet fits in with our knock off Eames Lounge Chair perfectly. As well, the bassinet is small enough so the child can be sleeping close to our bed without taking over the room. Ooba, the company making the bassinet, has also created a simple and beautiful slip cover, so washing and maintaining the bassinet is a breeze. The price is $600 and would be well worth it for the architect-couple expecting. The only thing missing from the bassinet is a way to modify this beautiful piece of furniture into a bench which would mean a long lasting use for the piece long after your child exits infancy.
