After attending approximately 30 weddings in the last couple of years, I am approaching the baby-boom stage of life. And with that come toddlers asks from friends. Regardless of what anybody’s style, age or lifestyle is, I urge Jenny Lind–fashion cribs and beds. Their whimsical spool foliage can quickly work in a conventional, transitional or diverse home.
Jenny Lind–fashion furniture has been popular for over a century and a half, making its title after Swedish opera superstar Jenny Lind toured America from the 1850s and favored the spool-style bed. Available now in many colours and finishes, the furniture continues to add charm and appeal to bedrooms across the world, particularly in the sleeping quarters of the wee ones.
