It has been a while since I have bought a baby crib for a nursery, but I recently went shopping with a friend who is expecting her first child and I was amazed to see the selection of modern baby cribs for nurseries that are available these days. When I was pregnant, choices were limited to a traditional crib that was kind of ornate, a sleigh style, or something that looked like a box with rails. Not anymore. The modern baby furniture trend started a few years ago, meeting the needs of modern-minded parents who wanted an alternative to circus themes and matchy-matchy nursery items. Decent options are no longer limited and there are now tons of modern baby cribs to choose from!
