When I posted a question about family sofas on Instagram, my DMs exploded. So many parents chimed in with stories of sofas they regretted buying: Annoying cushions, terrible fabrics, and buttons that popped off on Day Two. It seemed that no one was happy with their purchases. Clearly, this was a subject worthy of a Cubby buying guide!So, I called in the experts: Designers who are parents and everyday moms and dad like me and you.
When we set out to launch Cubby last fall, we wanted to help parents live better, more connected lives at home. Each week in the newsletter we bring you ideas for how to eat, live, and play. Today, we launch our very first buying guide, and you can expect them regularly from here out. In our buying guides, we’ll give you in-depth advice about the big-ticket items you might need to purchase for your home.
For many Cubby readers, there’s a good chance you’ve already bought your first crib, but for those who are on the cusp of parenthood or who are in the market for a new baby bed, this guide will tell you everything you need to know about buying a crib today.A crib is a critical decision in your baby’s nursery because it is the anchor piece of furniture in the room, says Emma Beryl, an interior designer based in New York and New Orleans.
Whether you’re on your last child or expecting your first baby, I don’t have to tell you how quickly things can accumulate. As I gear up for my first, my zen bedroom is getting more and more cluttered by the minute, my kitchen counters are already littered with childproof dinnerware, and my living room is slowly morphing into a play area.
