What inspired you to design cribs?
The inspiration was the creation of our first nursery. Stephen is a trained artist and furniture designer, and when we couldn't find any furnishings that spoke to our tastes, he designed one for our baby. We worked together and put things into that crib that spoke to each of us personally. For me, it was the medium of French wrought iron, which I love. For him, it was the ostrich plumes from his beloved home of South Africa. The blending was sublime, and unlike anything that had ever existed.

Totts Magazine - Maternity Must Haves
April/May 2010
Chelsea Lifetime Crib and Dresser/Changer are Maternity Must Haves

Each day that the waistline of an expectant mother expands a bit more only adds to the wonderment and excitement that accompanies the wait for baby. Some find solace in their last few months of quiet, while others dive into preparations for the big day.

For me, the nesting stage begins the second the pregnancy test strip jump starts my heart rate with the a"rmation of what is to come, and lasts until I strap my seat belt on for the !nal trip to the hospital.
