WHO: eve sleep: the cotbed

WHAT: A sleek and stylish bed that will take your child from newborn up until the age of 4. Evolving as your child develops, this bed transitions seamlessly from crib with high, mid and low mattress positions, to cot bed by removing the side panels and replacing them with a headboard and foot end. The cot/bed also comes with a handy trundle drawer for much needed extra storage.

WHY: This cot has a lovely fresh, contemporary feel and the white paint and solid ash finish gives it a cool scandi look that would work with any décor. Our judges were so impressed with eve sleep’s clever, versatile and sustainable approach to design and they were particularly taken with the under-bed storage that no parent in the world ever, didn’t need! Our judges said:

Love how versatile it is. Enables you to get longevity out of it.
