7. Luxe kids
Not all homeowners view baby furniture as disposable. Case in point: designer David Netto recently introduced his Cabine furniture collection, inspired by French modernism of the '30s. The set features a four-sided open crib constructed of white-lacquered and natural finished oak. Netto said his goal is to make baby furniture that "need never be thrown away, outgrown, or replaced due to aesthetic fatigue." $1,790 for Cabine Crib and $1,890 for Cabine Changer.
