Attention Wal-Mart Non-Shoppers! Modern Nursery Collection??


"Modernist" may be a stretch, but it looks like "Modern" is officially becoming a mainstream, mass-market selling feature for nursery furniture.

Wal-Mart has introduced a Modern Nursery set: a crib, changing station, and dresser in a blink-and-it-looks-like-Netto Collection combination of white painted and "Espresso" stained pine. And they're selling the crib at the decidedly un-Netto price of $299.

Granted, it has some traditional touches and details, especially along the edges; it's nowhere near as pared down modernist as, say, the waxed plywood floor in the product shot above. But still, it's a surprisingly clean-looking design. [Surprising to someone who's only set foot in a Wal-Mart like half a dozen times in his life, I guess.]

Normally, this is where I'd insert an affiliate program link to the product, in hopes of scoring a few percentage points kickback. But since I dropped Wal-Mart early on, it's just a plain old link. So shop with confidence, knowing all your money will go straight to the company.

[update: Now Target's getting in the game, too.]

I am actually crying. Finally a nice looking bedroom set that's in my price range and I can't buy it because it's at stupid, stupid walmart.

That tulip bedding is not at all horrendously ugly either!

If you listen very closely, you can hear the sounds of hell freezing over ...

It looks pretty cool, but it is still not Netto cool.
