Hyperchouette Bambou Bassinet de Mort


There really are never enough bamboo cribs and bassinets out there. Maybe because until lamination technology progressed it was so hard to make bamboo crib that didn't look like it escaped from a tiki bar, or was left over from that episode of Gilligan's Island where they found a baby.


But this awesome bamboo cradle from the 1970s suggests another explanation: that cutting edge bamboo crib design was just taking off when stricter safety regulations came along and smothered it in its, uh--well, anyway, not the best analogy.

My favorite part of this, though, are the legs, which are totally non-lethal and thus totally knockoffable. Someone get right on that, mkay?

Lit seventies enfant, reduit! EUR200!, just one of many awesome finds at littlevintage.fr [thanks dt reader Elizabeth]
