In our world today, we are coerced to accomplish things faster. “Lose weight in 10 days!” “Publish your book in 2 weeks” “Make money fast!”
There are luxury home builders that take years to build homes while others accomplish what seems to be the same in weeks. The luxury builder takes their time. Their design & build process considers the lifestyle of future generations of the would-be home owners. Each stage is combed through and tested over time for quality before moving to the next and the decor is far from the standard offering; clients have an unending choice of luxury fittings to go with their personal taste. Such homes are not suitable for the impatient buyer.
Our exclusive nursery furniture is purchased by parents who want a heritage piece for their family. Quality and safety are at the forefront of their mind while style remains uncompromised. The furniture pieces have to meet the existing standard of craftsmanship and aesthetics in their beautiful home. Our clients go on to use them for many years to come. Certain things, like fine wine, and nature get better with age. That is one quality that our furniture exudes.
The Sequoia tree grows to a height of 164–279 ft and 20–26 ft in diameter. Record trees have been measured to be 311 ft in height and over 56 ft in diameter. The oldest known Sequoia tree stands at 3,500 years old. The magnificence of this tree instills a reverent fear when you’re up close. The longer it stays alive, the more awe-inspiring it becomes.
Heritage nursery furniture made from solid hardwoods that have been carefully selected, steamed to improve its quality and then carved by hand takes time to produce, unlike the high street’s mass-produced variety. It is a bit like purchasing packet soup versus making your own. One takes 3 minutes, the other considerably more.
If you’ve ever watched the Food Channel you would have seen patrons of restaurants demonstrating the preparation of a well-loved meal. He shares the recipes with the viewers until he reaches for an unmarked jar. The secret recipe is a combination of carefully collected spices and herbs developed over time and passed down from one matriarch to the next.
It is with this mindset, the magnificence and longevity of the sequoia tree or the passing down of recipes for generations, that we produce our distinctive nursery furniture pieces. We choose craftsmen who have honed their skills for generations, using time-honored techniques and materials that can withstand the test of time and then our creativity is released to produce a unique, detailed piece. The Baby Cot Shop’s nursery and children’s furniture will be used and loved for years, withstanding anything thrown at it and finally passed down for the cycle to repeat itself. Like fine wine, your nursery does get better with age. This, is luxury.
2016 will witness the official launch of our new collection of heritage nursery furniture. It has taken years to bring every detail to perfection, and like that luxury home builder, you can fully customise your pieces.
