A new trend in nursery décor is the round baby crib. Shop online or in any local boutique and you will find new baby cribs that are less traditional than the rectangular cribs you may have seen in the past. There is fantasy inspired round cribs with ornate and dramatic long draping canopies. There are also more affordable round bassinet options that are both beautiful and functional. Most round cribs are made of wood, however some are offered in metal finishes as well.

At the top of the line, Little Miss Liberty offers a multitude of finishes from antique gold, and brushed silver, to traditional hardwoods. These gorgeous beds typically have a theme such as a carousel rocking horse or enchanted royal princess. The round cribs are large enough for a baby to grow into, and offer different look to any nursery. The crib rails are adjustable as well as the mattress height. Linens are not included in the purchase price. Round cribs are typically placed in the center of the room. The benefits of a round crib are safety in design, as there are no sharp edges for a baby to hurt themselves on, and the baby can see all around the room and is not up against a wall. Little Miss Liberty cribs can be found on-line as well as in fine baby boutiques nationwide.
