Nurseryworks Vetro Crib Steals the Show

The Clear Winner in Fancy-Pants Cribs

Ever since your little starlet arrived on the scene, her every move has been analyzed, discussed, and documented. Poor thing. It’s like living in a fishbowl.

Or the Vetro (that’s “glass” in Italiano) from Nurseryworks. Save for a few stainless steel screws, the crib is 100 percent acrylic, which means that baby has a transparent place to chill while her biggest fans keep watch.

Nurseryworks declares it a piece of art that’s the perfect complement to the modern home. And we agree. The showstopping sleeper is paparazzi worthy in every way — from its mod design to its fancy-pants price (we’re talking four figures).

On the off chance your housekeeper and stylist are both on vacay, there’s no need to fret: The high-grade plastic is smudge resistant.

Making it a low-maintenance addition to your home. Clearly.

Available for preorder online at giggle.com, $3,500. For more information, go to nurseryworks.com.
