At Modern Karibou we know how a new addition to the family changes the way parents look at the world around them. For precious bundles we recommend Nook. Why? Because Nook is making something incredible: a natural sleep system designed with the comfort, health, and happiness of your teeny tiny tidbit in mind.
Nook has been researching the nighttime needs of babies. They discovered that a sleep environment rich in oxygen is necessary for proper child development.
Nook designs allow for optimal airflow, ventilation, and temperature regulation to help babies sleep longer and more deeply. Wouldn't it be nice for everyone to get more downtime?
A natural fire retardant and microbe-resistant fibres contribute to a safe sleeping place for the family. Rest assured that toxic materials and harsh chemicals are never used in manufacturing.
Natural materials like organic certified cotton, eucalyptus and low-impact dyes facilitate the breathability of the Nook sleep system. Suddenly non-porous plastics and synthetics don’t sound so suitable.
Nook has your child in mind, yet they are also thinking of you. Nook products coordinate and look great (and by great we mean spectacular), plus they are a breeze to keep clean.
Say goodbye to mattress pads and overly involved midnight clean-ups. Natural fibres encourage liquids to bead on water-repellent and stain-resistant surfaces.
Nook loungers and lily pads are ideal for parents of furrier kids as well. The same benefits bestowed on infants will easily pamper precious pooches.
Look at Tuesday resting in style! Anti-microbial zinc has been infused onto fibres eliminating the possibility of bacteria, mold, fungus or funky odors to grow.
They found it was the best way to greet the neighbors. Though their throats became raw from shouting “hello,” at least the conversations were brief. (via Unhappy Hipsters)
A friend sent me a link to Design Milk's new site - Dog Milk - which is, you've guessed it, all about design for your four-legged friend. What really got my attention though was the links to hipster puppies and Unhappy Hipsters. How had I not heard of these before?
hipster puppies - Just plain cute and funny!

The dog was a master manipulator. They’d both become his pawns, puppets being pulled apart by this ménagerie à trois. (via Unhappy Hipsters)
It became his morning ritual. He woke, stepped to the window, and fantasized about the day he would be free of his knotty-pine cell. (via Unhappy Hipsters)
Vûrv Design, makers of extraordinary pet furniture and accessories, recently announced the addition of a new veneer: American Black Walnut. They have fallen in love with this veneer because of its gorgeous and varied grain, its North American origins, and its iconic modern look when paired with an exposed plywood edge. And frankly, so have we!
Not only are we smitten with this new finish, but the Vancouver-based studio is not too shabby either. By now, Vûrv Design may not need introduction, but to those who have yet to discover them, here is just a sample of some of their other gorgeous pieces.
• Their products are made by hand in a small furniture studio • They are a stellar example of what the Canadian craft industry has to offer • They care about the environment - they do not just "green wash"
