Bring Your Nursery Over to the Dark Side with Vox!

You might typically think of nurseries as light and bright, with plenty of colourful toys – but a dark theme can be just as perfect a choice for your little one’s room.

High-contrasting colours are known to stimulate a baby’s development, so if you’re painting your nursery walls a timeless white or ‘Egyptian Cotton’, pairing it with darker nursery furniture makes complete sense, and can really make the room ‘pop’.

From modern grey cots to retro dark wood wardrobes, Vox have everything you need to create the contrasting nursery of your dreams. So, read on for our best nursery furniture to bring your baby’s room over to the Dark Side – where you can do your best Darth Vadar impression and legitimately say, ‘Luke, I am your father!’*

*Assuming your baby is called Luke, and you are his father.

With birch wood legs on each piece and cane webbing on the drawer fronts of the chest and wardrobe, this beautiful nursery furniture has all the contrast you could want, built in.

As you can see, dark doesn’t have to mean dreary: this nursery is light, full of natural textures, and exudes boho style. And not a Sith in sight!

2. Vox Leaf Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set

The next Vox nursery set that will pull you away from the Jedis is the Leaf Cot 3 Piece Nursery Set in Graphite.

This nursery set will last your little one well beyond the baby years. The changing top on the chest can be removed to leave a stylish dresser, and the cot is fully adjustable, with 3 removable bars to allow your little one access. It can also transform into a toddler bed when the time comes.

With oak cot bars and shelves in the storage, this is another nursery set with contrasting colours on tap. Wouldn’t it look great with brightly coloured bedding and accessories? This is the way!

3. Vox Mid 2 Door Wardrobe

For a more retro look (we’re talking the original Star Wars trilogy, or even earlier!), check out the new Mid collection by Vox.

Inspired by the ‘mid’ 20th Century, this stunning mid-century nursery furniture comes in a choice of White, Black or Walnut, with the latter two shades ideal for creating a darker nursery.

The 2 Door Wardrobe features a soft-close drawer and doors, and 2 hanging rails among the wardrobe compartments, which are the perfect height for hanging your baby Yoda’s tiny robes!

4. Vox Altitude 3 Piece Nursery Set

The Altitude 3 Piece Nursery Set in Graphite offers a slightly more modern take on dark nursery furniture. There are still wooden accents made from oak, but the set has a squarer, more boxy shape that gives it a contemporary edge.

There are 3 drawers and a cupboard with shelves inside the changing unit and the baby changing top is optional. Within the wardrobe, you’ll find a multitude of shelves, a drawer and 2 clothing rails, ready to store all their bits and bobs. The cot bed base has 3 heights and it can transform into a toddler bed as your little one grows.

Paint glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling above, or hang a spaceship-themed mobile over the cot and let them drift off to explore the galaxies far, far away!

Think dark nursery furniture has to mean a monochrome room? Think again!

The dark grey and oak finish of the Nature 3 Piece Set looks fabulous against a colourful wall – check out this bright cornflower blue and see what we mean! We’re not sure Vader would approve…

Each part of the set features Vox’s classic oak legs and the cot converts into a stylish toddler bed for longevity. Let your little Luke or Leia rest in this gorgeous dark nursery furniture and they’ll be ready to pick up the fight again tomorrow!

7. Vox Concept Chest of Drawers

For a more Scandinavian take on the dark nursery trend, check out this Concept Chest of Drawers, which features shades of black, white and grey, all in the same piece of furniture.

The oak legs further enhance the Scandi feel of this stylish storage unit. We recommend styling it with a faux fur rug, natural textures and geometric prints to further emphasise the Nordic-ness.

Soft-close doors and drawers will protect your little Ewok’s paws, and there’s a blackboard panel on the front of the cupboard, which offers an opportunity for little ones to show their creative flair – and a rare occurrence when it’s ok to draw on the furniture!
