unique modern baby cradle“Form follows function” is a well-known phrase attributed to architect Louis Sullivan but Frank Lloyd Wright took the phrase one step further and said, “Form follows function—that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”

That is just what the design of these unique modern baby cradles has accomplished. Form and function have become one. Very different in shape yet all are formed for one function—to snugly fit the small size of a newborn while providing a method of gently rocking baby to sleep.

Hard to choose a favorite. I love the man in the moon for its whimsy and the Moveo by Baby Suommo for its elegance. Your favorite?
