With its broad slatted Lucite panels that render the streamlined structure nearly invisible, Nurseryworks’ Hollis Crib is a wonderfully magical piece of furniture. Okay, so one could argue that it resembles a fish tank… And I guess new parents may be scared silly when they awake, bleary-eyed, from their slumber to find their tot apparently floating atop a levitated mattress, but modern furniture will always face practical challenges. “Inspired by Charles Hollis Jones, a pioneer in acrylic furniture design, the Hollis crib is a unique and sophisticated sleeping spot for your little one,” explains the Nurseryworks website. The site also notes that the frame is made of “non-toxic and recyclable Lucite” in a patented design that allows for three mattress heights.
