The New Baby Essential You’ll Want to Build a Whole Nursery (or Room) Around
Botanical prints from an English design legend.

Nurseries are about to get very Victorian. On November 9, Scandi baby brand DockATot is launching a collaboration with Morris & Co. that features signature botanical prints from the founding father of the British Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris.
Sparked by DockATot founder Lisa Furuland Kotsianis’s love of the textile designer’s romantic work, the collection includes bassinets, tents, floor mats, nursing and meditation pillows (because new parents need both)—and, of course, the brand’s famous lounger, which will be available in two sizes (Deluxe+ for $205; Grand for $310) and five grandma-chic patterns, from a blue take on Pink & Rose to Morris’s famous Strawberry Thief.
We’re not used to seeing baby gear this stylish, so no one’s going to judge if you want to build an entire nursery around the thoroughly British designs—after all, Morris didn’t shy away from adding his nature-inspired motifs to fabric, carpet, and wallpaper for the ultimate matchy-matchy look. And truthfully, you don’t even need to have a baby to get in on the collection: With items like a goes-anywhere decorative cushion and a tufted ottoman rounding out the line, everyone can add a touch of Morris’s floral flourish to any room.
