Lurrrving Land of Nod's Retro Rocker

Everyone who comes over to our house to check out the nursery tells me that I need a rocker. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the space... especially for one of those gliders with the ottomans, which frankly make me seasick anyhow. If it were at all humanly possible to squeeze a rocker into our humble abode, it would be this Retro Rocker from Land of Nod:



It reminds me of the chairs from my pediatrician's waiting room. If I had known then how "retro" they would be now, I would have salvaged one and added the rocking part on myself. Even if I weren't having a baby, I'd want one of these!

I first found Land of Nod when looking for children's music. If you're a music snob like me, you'll appreciate their non-saccharine selections such as lullabye renditions of Bob Marley, U2 and Coldplay. Under the Crate and Barrel umbrella, Nod's furniture and accessories have the same classic-meets-modern clean feel of its parent company. A good SAT analogy would be:

Pottery Barn Kids is to Pottery Barn what Land of Nod is to Crate and Barrel.

Unfortunately their aren't too many brick and mortar Land of Nod stores (Seattle gets all the cool stuff), but thank God for online shopping... and wishful thinking:)
