WHO: Boori – Oasis Oval Cot

WHAT: The Boori Oasis Oval Cot is expertly crafted from sustainable solid wood into a beautifully soft rounded shape with a range of compatible accessories to transform it into a unique toddler bed and finally into a cosy sofa.

WHY: The judges loved the styling on this sleek cot  that is crafted from sustainable solid wood into a beautifully soft rounded shape – and the fact it lasts well beyond the newborn stage. As a beautiful alternative to a traditional bedside sleepers, as it fits into even the smallest of parents rooms and with lockable castors, and the fact it can fit through a standard door frame, mean easy and safe mobility from room to room.

Really like the design and the fact that it can be used as a little bench for small children as well.

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 JOINT SILVER WINNER: Best Cot / Cot Bed Design

WHO: Snüz – SnüzKot Skandi

WHAT: The stylish and innovative SnüzKot Skandi that grows with your child from birth to 10 years from cot (birth to 18mths) to cot-bed (up to 4 years) and finally a junior bed (with additional extension kit) and is made from sustainably source Beech wood.

WHY: The judges were impressed by these stylish and frankly clever cot that not only make the perfect nursery centre piece it also offers great value for money and practical benefits for parent and child. They noted that even the height of the toddler and junior bed had been carefully considered – by providing  just the right amount of elevation off the ground, while still being low enough to make getting in and out of bed easy for a toddler. They also loved the modern and minimal Scandinavian design and range of colours and style options available.

Interesting design and very versatile

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 JOINT SILVER WINNER: Best Cot / Cot Bed Design

WHO: Shnuggle – The Shnuggle Air Complete Sleep System

WHAT: The Shnuggle Air  – with the complete sleep system is the only bedside crib which coverts to a cot – offering a crib-to-cot transition for a baby right up until approx. 2 years old.

WHY: A two part system that really caught our judges eyes – they loved that the bedside crib allows parent and baby to sleep close without sharing the same bed and then you could transform this into a cot. Making the transition easy for both parents and child. Additional design points were given for the dual-view, breathable mesh sides, breathable, hypo-allergenic fibre mattress, 7 x height adjustments ( fits most bed heights) and the gentle incline option (helps ease colic/reflux).

Clever bedside crib that can convert into a full- size cot. Styled in white and slate grey
Susie Boone, Editorial Director for Parenting at Immediate Media Co.
Duality is key, I like how it can transition from newborn to cot. Great balance of style and practicality. The under cot storage is handy
Yvadney Davis, Children’s Stylist @yvadney
Great if you're looking for a stylish refresh on a traditional crib.
Fatima Truscott, Fashion Stylist and writer, @the_ft_times
A very well thought out design - this is a clever bed.

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER: Best Cot / Cot Bed Design

WHO: Anita’s House  – Mini Mia Cotbed

WHAT: Made from 100% sustainably sourced beech the Mini Mia by Anita’s House is a compact cot bed designed for city living and smaller rooms.

WHY: The judges felt the classic styling of this simple cot made it perfect for contemporary and traditional interiors. They loved that it’s neat and compact (measuring 125x71cms) – yet, really robust and that it doesn’t look like an extended cot when it is converted, but a elegant junior bed. The Mia comes with matching bed guards to ease the transition from cot sleeping to bed sleeping, and an optional storage drawer which is always useful in smaller spaces. They noted it was finished with water-based eco-friendly paint, easy to assemble and with no visible screws gave it a major style bonus point!

Clean design, sustainable wood, and good quality
Susie Boone, Editorial Director for Parenting at Immediate Media Co.
