Transformer Crib That Grows With Your Child

As all parents know, children grow out of things fast and furniture is no exception. When it comes to the latter, it’s best to purchase pieces that can be reused down the line, even after the child grows out of their primary function. And the Danish company Leander has recently unveiled one such piece of furniture: a baby crib, which grows with the child.

The Linea Cot, as it is called, is first and foremost a baby crib. It is made of solid oak and has cleverly designed sloping sides, which prevent the child from climbing out. It also has a base that is height-adjustable, meaning it can be moved up and down to accommodate the growing child. (more…)

There is also a loft, which can be used as a bedroom. The shed also features a secret room, hidden behind a bookcase, which can be used as a children’s playroom or bedroom. There is no kitchen or bathroom, but then again, the main function of the shed is to be a place for working or relaxing and the main house is not far away. (more…)
