Brands like Franklin & Ben and Milk Street Baby provide an array of dressers that cater to varied design preferences.

A changing table is another practical addition to your baby's room, designed to ease the diaper changing process.

A comfortable and supportive glider or rocking chair is essential for those late-night feedings and soothing sessions. These chairs provide a cozy spot for parents and babies to bond, relax, and unwind. When choosing a glider or rocking chair, consider factors such as cushioning, durability, and ease of cleaning.

Depending on the size and layout of your nursery, additional furniture pieces may enhance both the style and functionality of the space. Options from brands like Babyletto and Pali can create a cohesive and visually appealing feel to your baby’s room. Consider incorporating pieces such as:

  1. A side table: Perfect for holding a bottle of water, a baby monitor, or a book, a side table adds convenience to your glider or rocking chair.
  1. A floor lamp or nightlight: Soft and calming light options are essential for late-night feedings or diaper changes without disrupting your baby's sleep.
  1. Artwork and decor: Choosing complementary pieces, such as wall art, rugs, and curtains, can create a harmonious and nurturing atmosphere in the nursery.
