2010 was a good year for nursery design, being the year that Olli Ella was founded. On searching for a modern nursing chair for impending motherhood, and finding none that were stylish or fun, co-founder Chloe and her sister Olivia decided that they should make use of their creative flair and design one. The Mo-Ma Glider, Da-Da Glider and Go-Go Glider chairs were created and kick-started a business that now extends to three modern and stylish nursery bedding collections and a delightful series of art prints, about which I've previously posted (read that post here).
Each nursing chair is lovingly hand-made from start to finish using traditional craftmanship here in England, and Olli Ella are rightly proud to think the chairs will likely migrate from the nursery to other rooms of the house over time. The nursery bedding collections are also super-stylish and also handmade in England (with lots of love thrown in). The bedding is made using only 100% organic cotton and printed with inks that are water-based and free from harsh chemicals.
As for the bedding designs, they are perfect for modern babies with cool, design-loving parents. The muted colour palettes with warm tones, the geometric designs and sophisticated styling are fresh and contemporary and oh so lovely for being just that little bit different.
