Furniture, cribs, mattresses, baby room decorations, changing pads, mobiles, baby room rugs, humidifiers, lighting, and toy boxes--there is a world of decisions to be made when it comes time to get your baby’s room ready to go. Thankfully, you get about a nine-month warning to do so.
Here at Albee Baby, we’ve decorated a few rooms for our own kids. We’ve been around as a family business since 1933, and we know what it takes to furnish your nursery.
The best nursery furniture creates a safe, cozy, and engaging environment for your baby and a room that you love to be in. There’s a good chance that you’ll spend almost as much time in the nursery as your little one, at least during the first few months. And while you have a lot of time to decide what the nursery will look like, that first night home from the hospital comes a lot quicker than you might expect.
To choose the right furniture for you, a good idea is to start with the crib (and mattresses). This will become the centerpiece of your nursery. You’ll want to think ahead, as what your baby needs on day one will quickly grow. Also, a few sets of sheets are ideal--you never know when you’ll need to make a middle-of-the-night change, and there’s nothing like a fresh sheet on hand when you need it. If you’re going the baby registry route, this is a great item to include in multiple quantities, as you’ll certainly need more than one. Swaddle blankets are a great compliment to the crib, and while it will never completely make sense to you how babies love to be unable to spread out across the entire mattress, you’ll nonetheless enjoy the straight-to-sleep quality a swaddle blanket brings.
Next, there are additional essential pieces of baby furniture that can reflect your personal style while making your child’s room a place of wonder. The rug(s) and curtains in your nursery can be a wonderful style statement that complements the colors and themes you’ve chosen. From bold and bright to simple and subdued, we have an extensive selection to choose from. You’ll also want to explore dressers, gliders, bassinets, tables, and more.
One piece of nursery furniture that often gets overlooked is the lamps/lighting. The lighting in your LO’s room not only enhances the style of the room, it can also bring a cozy low-light situation for those evenings of snuggly reading and tender rocking if done correctly.
And every new parent will tell you: don’t forget to plan good nursery storage! From those tiny socks to packages of diapers to piles of toys and books — storage bins, bookshelves, and closet organizers can be the baby furniture that saves your sanity during the challenges of new parenthood.
When it’s all said and done, you can start to explore nursery room decor. Decals and wall art add a special touch of whimsy and beauty and help bring all the nursery furniture together. Especially since many designers have created nursery components that all work together, creating a well-designed room with coordinated baby furniture is a breeze.

We have been in business for nearly 100 years, and we work hard to make sure that the baby products that we sell are industry-leading, loved-by-parents, and extremely safe for your baby.
