In a nursery, everything works overtime. Especially when square footage is limited: That dresser will be moonlighting as a changing table, and art supply cubbies will have to double as toy chests. Crate + Kids gets it. In addition to a plethora of stylish pieces made for your little one to grow into (think: an olive green dresser and terrazzo table lamps), its fall collection is brimming with smart storage finds. These items will see you through every part of your kids’ day, from getting dressed in the morning to turning in for bedtime stories.
Here’s what we’re bookmarking from the just-launched line for parents; when it comes time to tidy up, you’ll be glad you made the purchase.
The Catchall Crib
This ash-wood (convertible!) number will be the star of any tiny nursery: It comes equipped with three built-in drawers ideal for stashing everything a new parent needs for early-morning and late-night visits.
The Homeschool Mainstay
Make at-home lessons go a bit smoother—or at least tidier—with this Scandinavian-inspired nesting table and chairs. All four stools include compartments for books and art supplies and neatly tuck under the desk when it’s time to break for lunch.
The Mini Library
Kick off organization habits at a young age with this low-to-the-ground (read: easy for small hands to reach) book holder. Plus the minty hue seamlessly blends into pastel palettes.
The Multitasking Dresser
Soft bins are perfect for housing everyday items like bibs and socks, and you can swap them out seasonally when you’re craving a pop of pattern for the room. There’s plenty of space for rolling out a changing pad on top, too, if you’re hunting for a piece that can double as a diaper station.
The Stylish Wardrobe
Your kids will actually want to get dressed thanks to this playhouse clothing rack. Use it to display all their favorites (and encourage them to hang things up at the end of the day) or free up closet space by storing bulky essentials on the rod. There’s even a shoe ledge.
The Shiny Storage
This glitzy take on a standard wall shelf puts a spotlight on homemade artwork. Stagger a few to create a statement, and rotate the display for an ever-changing gallery.
The Grown-Up Bed
Who doesn’t love a secret hiding spot? This versatile item will see them through their childhood and includes a concealed compartment behind the headboard for keeping treasured tokens and bedtime stories within arm’s reach.
