I got this gorgeous bassinet a while ago at a sample sale. It is from France and I fell in love with it at first sight. Because of space {or lack thereof} we won’t even buy a crib until the baby outgrows this bed. It didn’t come with bedding but I have five months to figure that out…

    Holy Moses basinet! I love it! Also, you are one lucky mother. Seriously, where do you find such treasures?

    Oh my, that is a gorgeous bassinet/basket. Any online sources for it?

    I wish there was an online source…then I could buy the bedding to go along with it. It was bought in France at a boutique by a VP of a baby company and ended up at the sample sale in SF.

    By bedding do you mean that it doesn’t have a mattress and that it doesn’t have sheets, blankets, etc or just the latter? If it’s that you’re missing a mattress then I would suggest going to an uphostery shop and asking for them to custom cut a piece of medium hard sofa cushioning to fit. I did that with our heirloom bassinett and it worked great. The shop should have all different thicknesses and hardnesses so you can chose the one that you think would work best. Plus they have special cutters they can use to fit it perfectly. I can’t really help you on the sheets though. I just sewed some myself to fit ours.

    If you do the custom cushion thing, choose a firm one for safety.

    Our son slept in the bassinet that snaps into the top of a pack n play because it kept him at mama-level and within easy reach. It’s also portable, which was handy for hotels and grandma’s houses.

    Actually, he’s 18 months now and still sleeps in one (in the main section of it now). My pediatrician gave the okay, and in fact said it’s nice because there’s no way to climb out.

    So excited for you! I love that you’re keeping things simple. Good luck with that when it comes to kiddie stuff- though your family has a special talent for finding the elusive stylish kid gear, sometimes within our budget, too.

    Beautiful. Good move. I don’t think you’ll be sorry. That little bassinet looks small enough to travel. That way baby can always have his own bed and will therefore sleep. A girlfriend of mine bought a beautiful crib on her first baby and ditched it on her 3rd in favor of the basket. She swears by it because she like to go places even with baby.

    Jordan, I have a fab seamstress in Texas (we live in NJ and mail her fabric). She can sew anything and her prices are so cheap it makes me feel guilty. Let me know if you end up needing some custom sewn sheets blankets, I agree, you can get a firm piece of foam locally and she can make you sheets to fit.

    Jordan, this is my first time reading your blog, I found it on your sisters blog (DesignMom). That is one gorgeous bassinet seriously, the material looks very sturdy and as creative as you seem I’m sure you won’t have any trouble finding textiles to make it even more beautiful! I think you’re already on the way to being a great mom, keeping it simple is key.

    Jordan you are making it extremely hard for me to come up with a good gift for you! Everything you find is so sweet & unique … St. George doesn’t have that kind of cool!

    There are some online sources for moses baskets, but it is hard to find the bedding with out the basket. You could always get the whole kit and kaboodle and use the basket for laudry, though. The moses basket store has some cute fabric, as does moses

    Jordan, way cute basket. I wanted to get one of those for my baby, but my husband thought it was a dumb idea. He didn’t realize that our baby wouldn’t be sleeping in his room for 6 months.

    Hi Jordan, I was introduced to your blog from Mamacita. She posted a comment on my blog about this bassinet, it is all the rave! What a great find, it is gorgeous, timeless and incredibly chic. I love it!

    I’m really into wicker right now, I posted an entire wicker story last week and this bassinet just makes my heart flutter.

    Check out the story, I know you’ll love it.
