Stylish Italian pushchairs have long been Inglesina’s stock in trade, but now they’re branching out and have introduced a range of nursery essentials that combine functionality and style.
The M’home collection is based on minimalist modern lines and offers an uncluttered contemporary look – white plastic, brushed aluminium and bright fabrics (red, orange, aqua and graphite for a true monochrome).
Our favourite in the collection is Loft, a rocking baby chair that looks pretty darn cool, bereft as it is of twee toys and tasteless prints. But behind those sleek lines lie some great features. The backrest can be adjusted to a variety of positions, from fully recumbent for a snooze to sitting up for a snack; the rocking motion can be turned on or off; the padding looks seriously comfortable, including on the straps and over the buckle; there are carry handles, and even a sun canopy to shade your babe.
Also in the range is Spa, an ingenious changing table/bath combo: the ergonomically designed baby bath sits within the frame, at just the right height for bathing your baby without breaking your back (it’s easily removed for cleaning); on top of this sits a changing mat, while beneath there are towel rails, shelves and a selection of pockets for wipes, toiletries, etc.
And finally, take your pick from tow high chairs: Zuma, which offers height and seat angle adjustability, and Club (dubbed the ‘easy’ high chair), easily dismantled for transport. Both have easy-to-clean seats and padded seat inserts for comfort.
Loft rocking chair £59.99; Spa £109.99, Zuma £149.99 and Club £69.99. All from M’home by Inglesina. For more, visit www.inglesina.com. For stockists, call Kooltrade on 0161 335 2508.
