If you’re expecting your first child, chances are you in the midst of tossing around nursery ideas and exactly what you want that space to be like for your little one.  You are probably not thinking beyond the next several months when you bring that beautiful bundle of joy into the world, but you should. While shopping for the perfect nursery furniture, you should consider making a purchase that can provide you with longevity.  Because, let’s face it, our little ones grow up, and fast!  Just think, as much fun as you are having designing that perfect nursery now, you will have just as much fun in a few years creating the ultimate big kid room, and eventually turning that space into a guest room once little bambino is all grown up and off to college. <a href="http://www.munirefurniture.com/products-page/baby-cribs/">Muniré</a> and <a href="http://www.echelonfurniture.com/products-page/lifetime-cribs/">Echelon</a> cribs are designed with this exact situation in mind.  Our lifetime cribs are designed as a full bed first, and then we adapt them into beautiful cribs.  High-back headboards and detailed footboards make it hard to imagine a converted full bed was ever a crib—because let’s face it, furniture is an investment, and you want to make it worthwhile. So, to show you exactly what we mean, and how you can transform a crib into a beautifully styled big kid or guest room, take a peek at these rooms using Muniré and Echelon Collections.

It’s that time of year and we are counting down the hours until the <a href="http://www.theabcshow.com/">2011 ABC Kids Expo </a>begins.  This is the biggest trade event we attend on an annual basis, with almost 1000 other exhibitors.  It’s our time to meet with our <a href="http://www.munirefurniture.com/store-locations/">amazing dealers</a>, gather feedback and share with them all we have to offer for the upcoming year. Of course, we are still in the midst of setup here at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, but I’ve already been over to the 5000 square foot booth to take a peek, and let me tell you, there are some exciting things coming for 2012.  It kind of makes me want another little one…like right now, so I can build out a <a href="http://www.munirefurniture.com/collections/">beautiful nursery</a> with some of the fabulous new collections we have coming…but, I won’t let envy get the best of me and I’ll bide my time on that one. So, you might wonder, what it takes to get prepared for an event like this.  Well, speaking from experience, it’s a lot of logistics, details, moving parts and hard work that make it all come together.  This year we assembled all of our collections in our warehouses and shipped them to the show all intact.  It definitely gives us a jump on things by not having to do all the work on the show floor during the limited setup time.  Of course, it took 3 full 52 ft. trucks to get it there, but all well worth it in the end to see all of the collections dressed out and ready to show. If you’re in for the show, we’d love to see you, so stop by booth #5511.  And if not, be on the lookout for some great things coming to a nearby dealer in 2012—you won’t be disappointed!

If you are just beginning to shop for <a href="http://www.munirefurniture.com/collections/">the perfect nursery furniture</a>, you might be asking yourself, “what is a lifetime (aka 4-in-1 crib), anyway”?  Well, simply put, it’s a crib that converts to toddler bed and then into a full size bed, so that you can use it even after your bambino is no longer a bambino. I know it’s sometimes hard to think too far ahead when the most immediate thing to be anxious and excited about is meeting that little one for the first time.  BUT, let me tell you, they grow up…and FAST! (trust me!) So, having a crib that converts to all the stages you need, makes it easy to make one investment, then convert to each stage when you’re ready. <a rel="attachment wp-att-2579" href="http://www.munirefurniture.com/a-crib-for-a-lifetime/lifetime-cribs-3/"><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-2579" title="lifetime cribs" src="http://www.munirefurniture.com/wp-content/uploads/lifetime-cribs2.jpg" alt="" width="650" height="204" /></a> <a rel="attachment wp-att-2548" href="http://www.munirefurniture.com/a-crib-for-a-lifetime/lifetime-cribs-2/"></a> On a personal note, we moved my now 20 month old to her toddler bed when she was 18 months.  It was really simple and she absolutely LOVES being able to crawl into bed (and out) all by herself!  Actually, she was completely giddy over it all, and I’m elated that we never had to experience any type of fall from her trying to climb out of her crib on her own. Muniré actually designs their <a href="https://www.munirefurniture.com/products-page/baby-cribs/">cribs</a> as full beds first, since it’s used for a longer period of time in this mode.  Once the design fits our liking, the details on how make it to <a href="http://www.healthychildren.org/english/safety-prevention/at-home/pages/new-crib-standards-what-parents-need-to-know.aspx?nfstatus=401&amp;nftoken=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000&amp;nfstatusdescription=ERROR%3a+No+local+token">crib safety standards </a>are next.  There is also special attention given to the footboard, so that when converted, it will not only function as a full bed, but will look beautiful in the room.  So rest assured, when you’re purchasing a Muniré  Lifetime™ 4-in-1 Crib, it will look just as good, if not better as a full-size bed.  And, our sophisticated and stylish designs will literally transform the décor to follow your child from the nursery to college and beyond as an adult guest room.
