When designing your child’s nursery or big-kid room, there are only so many options. The big names in kid’s furniture all look the same (and can be a bit overpriced), while the less expensive (Swedish store with funny sounding named furniture) options are, well, a bit cheap.
Today we have the just-right option for you: new-to-the-US, Spanish-based Micuna.
With more than 40 years’ experience producing and commercializing furniture and accessories for children in Spain, Micuna ranks among the top three manufacturers in the industry in Europe — and it’s easy to see why.
Combining quality craftsmanship with a unique European aesthetic, Micuna’s furniture is beautiful, clean and classic — with a flair of magic and whimsy. All Micuna products are handcrafted within the company’s 116,000 square foot workshop that houses top-notch machinery with the latest technology available. Its products adhere to the strictest quality control and safety standards, with the child’s safety always top priority.
This children’s furniture force is also eco-friendly: Micuna was the first baby furniture manufacturer in the world to achieve the prestigious IS0 14001 environmental certification. Furthermore, all Micuna products are manufactured with wood obtained from sustainable forests, and their coating process is performed with water-based paint, making it both green and kid-friendly.
From its inception, Micuna has set trends within the children’s furniture sector; for example, introducing wooden cribs at a time when metal cribs dominated the market. Here are some of our very favorite pieces from Micuna…
A minimalist chair with a designer edge, OVO (“egg” in Portugese) is the height of sophisticated dining for toddlers. This chic chair combines comfort and safety with elegant design that blends perfectly into any interior. The OVO’s legs and frame are made from solid beechwood that’s classic, clean — and completely adjustable.
Features we love:
- Features a removable and washable round tray with raised sides to prevent spills, in addition to a footrest and leatherette straps for extra safety.
- Designed for kids from 6 months to 3 years. As the child grows, this chair evolves and remains useful; the bottom part of the legs are removable to make a comfortable chair that’s perfect for the dining table or a small desk.
- Customizable: optional fabric seats for added comfort can be purchased separately.
- Chair comes packaged in a clever protective drum that can even be re-purposed for toy storage!
We are strong advocates of safe co-sleeping here at Daily Mom, and the Micuna Smart Fresh Bassinet is a new addition to our favorite mobile cribs. With its stylish oval shape, the Smart Fresh Bassinet is comfortably padded to envelop baby and make her feel safe and secure. The bassinet’s transparent and breathable fabric allows parents to see their baby all the time — without having to get out of bed. Crafted from beechwood and MDF, the bassinet features 6 wheels with a brake so it can easily be moved from one room to another — even with a sleeping babe in tow!
Features we love:
- Comes with a choice of three frames to suit your style: metallic grey, white beech wood or natural wood.
- Includes a mattress that’s designed specifically to fit the oval shaped bassinet safely and securely.
- Transparent sides allow parents to easily check on baby.
- Unique oval shape that’s like a comforting hug for your little one.
With its endless combinations and constructions, the Micuna LIFE Collection Crib is designed for parents looking for something original and a little different. Micuna gives parents the tools to design and create their own original crib model based on their preferences. Parents will have fun designing their own customizable crib with a range of 15 spindle shades from which they can choose three and combine them with a crib base in natural wood or white. The life of the crib can be extended as baby grows by allowing for multiple mattress heights, removing spindles for toddlers and even converting the crib to a bed.
Features we love:
- The crib is simple to assemble: the spindles feature innovative spring technology allowing for them to snap easily in place.
- Parents get to create their own custom crib!
- This crib grows with your child.
Micuna created the HARMONY Crib to accompany children from birth to toddlerhood. This innovative modern crib offers the perfect solution that links practicality and space saving. Designed especially for those seeking baby products with exceptional features, quality and safety, HARMONY can easily evolve from a crib-to-twin size bed as a child grows.
Features we love:
- The only bed you’ll ever need for your child, as the crib can be converted to a twin-sized bed!
- Crafted from eco-MDF.
- Optional Kit for conversion to bed available from Micuna.
- Beautiful, clean design that compliments any décor.
