You really should not just buy a Munire crib. The company designs furniture that is to be used for a child's lifetime. It specializes in making convertible cribs and nursery furniture that looks just as good in a child's bedroom as it does in the nursery.
Munire is an independent manufacturer of nursery furniture and is based in New Jersey. The company has a reputation of producing finely crafted nursery furniture with elegant designs with special emphasis on detailing and finishes.
The company's philosophy is that nursery furniture should serve not just your baby, but your child as it grows right through to adulthood. To this end, it only makes convertible cribs. The Munire collection of beautiful baby bedding can be converted from crib to toddler to day bed right through to full size bed.
The company's excellence in both design and construction has ensured that many consumers' reviews highly rate Munire cribs and furniture. Trade reviews also give the company glowing reviews. Munire is the only furniture manufacturer to receive "Best" ratings in both the crib and dresser categories in Baby Bargains (6th edition, Denise and Alan Fields, Windsor Peak Press).
If you're looking to buy nursery furniture you should definitely take a look at what Munire has to offer. Pay special attention to the quality of the joinery used in the construction of its armoires, dressers and convertible cribs. All Munire furniture is made from hardwood, some with additional veneers. Also take a look at the extra detailing on its furniture; it takes time and money to go that little step further.
The current collection offers you nursery furniture with various themes. The Munire Antigua crib brings to mind hot afternoons in the Caribbean, with its use of woven rattan and sculptured moldings. The Munire Newport crib is a favorite. It has an elegant, gently curving rail with fluted legs. It comes in various finishes of cherry, espresso, classic chestnut, rubbed antique white and rubbed antique black. For a simple crib, take a look and the Essex. It is a small, relaxed baby crib that could be used in both a traditional and contemporary nursery.
You should be aware that some of the company's cribs and nursery furniture is now made overseas in the Far East. Recently there have been concerns about the levels of lead found in paint finishes on some children's products made in the Far East. However, you can rest assured that this is not a problem with its furniture.
All Munire convertible cribs made in the Far East are made in Indonesia and are tested regularly by Intertek (testing lab for JPMA- Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association). In addition, Munire cribs and furniture have JPMA certification as well as meeting or exceeding the standards established by ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and the Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Munire cribs and furniture are not going to be everyone's choice. The company's furniture is expensive and their designs lean heavily on older styles and may just be a little too decorative for the tastes of many. But, if you like craftsmanship that is still affordable, with intricate designs of times past, then a Munire crib and furniture set may be what you're looking for.
