Kid’s Dig’s: Nursery Designs to Blow Their Little Minds 
September 2016 | Words by Anna Koukis
We’ve rounded up the very best selection of nursery furniture here at Ray & Robin.  Contemporary, traditional and vintage, we’ve got all bases covered.  Style and substance are very important to us, so you can read on and rest assured that all items are impeccably well made as well as gorgeous. Happy shopping!
High Chair
Made in France, Combelle’s high chairs have been welcome additions to nurseries for almost 100 years.  Combelle is a family business with the third generation of Combelle’s currently ensuring that the same craftsmanship that they have always been known for is still very much a huge part of the brands essence.  Each item is made with 100% solid beech wood from trees that are over eighty years old!  We love this bright pink high chair.  A perfect blend of traditional design and modernity.  Guaranteed to add a touch of pizzazz to any nursery.  Available in other colours for those who fancy a softer approach, or personalised for a special touch.
In 1953 Christian Flensted made his first mobile to celebrate the christening of his daughter – He cut out three storks, mounted them in two straws, and the first Flensted Mobile was made.  After sixty years the Flensted mobiles are still designed and made in Funen, Denmark – the island of Hans Christian Anderson.  Beautifully created with wonderful traditional designs for kids bound to add a special touch to any nursery.  We love the five flying swallows mobile ourselves but there are many great, quirky designs to be bought, hot air balloons, sailing boats and some super cute happy frogs for example.
nursing chair
The hunt for a decent, comfortable nursing chair that isn’t going to break the bank is much harder than we thought! The Nursery Works Empire Rocker is incredibly comfortable as well as supremely stylish.  Modern and finely upholstered with solid ash hardwood legs this smooth rocking chair is a perfect addition to any nursery.

Olli Ella was founded on the idea that just because something is made for a nursery, it needn’t look out of place elsewhere.  This is a wonderfully useful concept for parents as kitting out a nursery is expensive! They stock gorgeous pieces that work just as well in an adults space as they do in a kids space.  Kooky, hand picked pieces that give a wink to the founders exotic travels abroad, Olli Ella’s designs are inspiring and beautifully made.  This hanging moses basket couldn’t be more up our street – hand woven by female artisans in South America it brings as a bohemian yet Scandi vibe.

A delightful and practical addition to any nursery should always be given a warm welcome.  There are too many brands offering nursery staples such as changing mats and floor play mats that are basic.  The Bella Bunny Mat is made of soft cosy materials, with a padded base and a raised surrounding the mat is an ideal safe place to pop baby to help them unwind and relax.
Dragons furniture is mainly wooden, hand painted with images from their thirty year old portfolio of artwork.  They hold exclusive agencies for hand painting Beatrix Potter, Bell and Boo, Flower Fairies, Paddington Bear and Brambly Bear.  Hugely imaginative and very well made these British designs are traditional and extremely luxurious.  A treat for any nursery.  As well as selling furniture Dragons are happy to help design a nursery top to bottom.  Their artists, carpenters and designers work seamlessly to transform a favourite story, passing idea or vibrant colour into a beautiful and functional interior.
baby changing station
We have fallen in LOVE with every piece of furniture at RHBaby & Child.  This vintage bench is Swedish, and inspired a whole collection for the brand.  Don’t be fooled by those delicate spindled legs, this ornate baby changer can hold any baby with ease.  The beauty of this elegant changing table is that once your little one has moved onto potty training it can leave the nursery and be used as a very special shelving unit anywhere in the house.  We think it would look fabulous in a bathroom laden with big fluffy towels.
