Nursery Furniture Sets to Fit Your Style

When a baby arrives on the scene, you’ll find yourself in the nursery A LOT! Changing nappies, nursing, tidying up, reading bedtime stories and making any excuse to stop by and stare at your sleepyhead for the 1000th time… So, when it comes to selecting that all-important nursery furniture set, the best advice we can give is – once you’ve figured out all the features you’ll need, make sure it fits your style too!

Not sure what that style might be? Or found too many to choose from? We’ve put together a few ideas below to help you decide!

Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we’ve even matched our nursery sets with accessories, bedding and décor to inspire your selection!

1. Scandi Modern in Mind?

Vox Concept Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set

If you’ve already chosen a modern look for the rest of your home or you live in a new build, a modern Scandi-style nursery furniture set might be the best fit!

But what makes a set Scandi? Look for clean lines, muted colours, minimalism and practical features. The set that says it best – the Vox Concept Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set! Designed with recessed handles, smooth and easy-to-clean surfaces, convertible frames, soft-close features and block-coloured panels in a choice of shades; if you were looking to create a modern nursery, then look no further!

When looking to style up this 3 piece set, choose additional furniture and décor to pair with the colour-blocking design of the Vox Concept range. For box rooms, we’d add in the Vox Simple Customisable Wall Shelf to use up all the wall space possible and maximise on storage. Lucky to have the square footage to play with or drilling holes in the walls is a no go? The Kiddy Wooden Kids Toy Box and Bloomingville Bookcase fit the sets Scandi style and would be a great place to stash toys and books and still be within reach of curious tinkers!

2. Vintage Pastels with Practical Features

On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re looking to create a nursery with a nod to vintage styles instead, go for the Vox Vintage 3 Piece Cot Bed Nursery Furniture Set – I mean, it’s in the name?! But don’t let that fool you, there are plenty of practical hidden features.

Including an oak effect convertible cot bed, a double wardrobe with shelving and hanging rails and a dresser with a choice of colourful fronts and push-to-open drawers; this practical pastel collection opens lots of doors to nursery themes too! Create a seaside sanctuary with beach-hut blue, a fantasy dreamland with pretty pink or take it dino notch and choose pastel green for a prehistoric theme – all with a vintage twist!

Leaning into the soft pastel scheme, we’ve picked out some of our favourite nursery accessories to suit this style. The Leander Matty Changing Mat is a must-have if you decide to add the optional changing top to the Vox Vintage 3-drawer dresser. This brilliant accessory is completely waterproof, easy to clean and adapts to room and body temperatures to keep little ones comfortable.

The final finishing touches – don’t forget the Kids Concept Wooden Toy Guitar and Cotton Ball Lights Pastel LED String Lights and add in a selection of your favourite child-friendly vintage finds to complete the look.

3. Monochromatic Fanatic

Ickle Bubba Tenby Classic 3 Piece Furniture Set

Not crazy about colour? The Ickle Bubba Tenby Classic 3-Piece Furniture Set might be up your street! Including a convertible and adjustable cot bed, 2-door wardrobe and baby changing unit – the bold black details and hardware are sure to make a statement in the nursery.

Many experts have also suggested that strong contrasting colours can actually encourage visual development in babies and aid brain development, showing there are scientific benefits to this style choice too!

Don’t stop there with black and white! The Obaby High Back Rocking Chair, Bloomingville Seagrass Rocket Basket and Kids Panda Plush Animal Head Coat Hook all follow the monochrome scheme.

Babies start to see in full colour at the age of 4 months, with their vision completely developing around the age of 3, so you’ll have a little bit of time before you decide to add pops of colour to their first bedroom! When your tot is ready to step outside of your black-and-white comfort zone – try out other shades with soft furnishings and bedding instead of replacing furniture. Then when your little one finds their favourite colour for themselves, their nursery accessories can easily be swapped out later!

4. Timeless Traditional

Want to create a totally timeless nursery style that will grow with your family – it’s got to be the Obaby Stamford Luxe Cot Bed 2 Piece Nursery Furniture Set! Styled with scroll details, gentle curved lines and soft edges, this classic design is ever-so elegant.

Pick and choose from additional storage from the Stamford range to customise your Obaby set to your requirements and final theme.

Now, something for your little one – if you’re looking for timeless bedding the Little Green Sheep and Panda London have you covered. Made from all-natural materials, highly breathable, temperature regulating and machine washable – stylish bedding can be smart too!

And to go alongside their new artwork, the Kids Concept Colourful Wooden Abacus, Kids Concept Wooden Mobile and Kids Concept Aiden Car Playmat and Rug introduce all the best colours the 20th century had to offer.

7. Choose Granny Chic!

Vox Milenne Baby Cot Bed 2 Piece Nursery Set

Want to channel your inner granny/grandaddy when it comes to styling the nursery? We’re not talking about decorating your newborn’s bedroom with doilies and cross-stitch (although now we mention it, that sounds adorable doesn’t it?!), but instead do it with the Vox Milenne Baby Cot Bed 2 Piece Nursery Set! The elegant panelling and carved details have been given a chic update with gold handles and on-trend coloured finishes.

Anything but old-fashioned, the cot bed features a height-adjustable base and can be converted into a toddler bed and the 3 drawer dresser can be transformed into a baby changing unit with the optional removable attachment.

Along with pairing the set with patterned wallpaper, hang crocheted cardigans from the Woood Levin Folding Coat Rack and write messages in chalk on the Bloomingville Higma Blackboard with Drawers. Finally, your granny chic nursery wouldn’t be complete without a rocking horse – neigh way!
