Here’s a cute convertible crib  with a modern aesthetic and the flexibility to remain useful as your baby becomes a toddler. The Oeuf Crib  will take your newborn through their toddler years with the Toddler Bed Conversion Kit , turning the super cute crib into a modern bed for your growing little one. We love this approach to sustainable design- designing for changing needs and delivering stylish function for years to come.
In a little more than two steps, the crib turns into a bed bed (and back to crib for a younger brother or sister) by removing the side panels and replacing them with the Toddler bed side panels, which ensures that even the most restless of sleepers won’t go rolling out of bed.
The multi-use and design for long lifecycle isn’t the only environmentally friendly aspect of the Oeuf Crib – every material which went into building the crib was carefully considered as well. The base is made from solid certified Birch, and the walls of the crib are made from environmentally friendly MDF from recycled wood fibers, covered with a non-toxic white lacquered finish.
Taking after its namesake, Oeuf  (that’s “egg” in French), the designs are both simple, clean, and entirely functional. Sophie Demenge an Michael Ryan, the husband-and-wife designers and founders of Oeuf  created the line in 2002 for the new generation of design-conscious and environmentally-aware parents.
