I just may be able to tip him towards my camp a bit with Q Collection’s new junior line. Known for furniture and textiles that are safe for both babies and mama earth, Q Collection now offers a simply fabulous array of similarly fashioned kids’ furniture, organic crib bedding and accessories. The clean design appeals even to traditionalists like my husband, and the sturdy construction starts with locally grown wood from responsibly managed forests – with no extra goodies like formaldehyde or polyurethane.
This stuff is definitely an investment; this is no Swedish particle-board furniture. But considering you’ve got far better reasons to justify a Q Collection Junior purchase than just "ooh…pretty" I’d say give it a good, hard look. -Kristen
