Thick angular frames against simple spindles offer a contrast that we love.

Textured surfaces against clean solid objects provide a strong feeling of cubism that would make Picasso and Klee proud daddies. Our Two-tone finish adds yet another dimension to shapes and elements that are simple, yet sophisticated. Cribs and Case pieces ordered in our Mud with Snow finish, offer solid wood frames, heavily sandblasted, to reveal the natural topography of the woodgrain. The unique characture of the tree used in construction makes each piece a one of a kind masterpiece! We chose to finish the True Collection using contrast in color and texture, pairing a clean, fresh white with earthy warm age and wear. Pure passion from mother nature herself!

The True Collection comes to you in the perfect finish, Mud with Snow.

After mixing hundreds of white formulas at the Valspar lab. Milk Street’s Snow is the best white you will find.

While it may seem easily achieved, we believe white is the toughest color to mix. It must be clean and simple with no yellow or pink undertones to be found. Every True Crib is a one of a kind work of art. The unique distressing techniques and color mix offers total depth with a multifaceted brown grey. The woodgrain of our Mud finish shows like mountain ranges, with peaks and valleys all of which reflect light at different angles. It offers a perfect contrast to Snow.


This collection offers two uniquely different crib options. The high-back convertible crib is a 4-in-1, while the traditional crib is 3-in-1.

The High-back Convertible Crib: Textured wood provides a tactile contrast against a clean, white canvas. This Milk Street crib is as modern as it gets, mixing the simple with the complex to offer a feeling of the outdoors inside your nursery. The unique size and scale of this crib provides clarity for your baby and the serenity of an uncluttered place to begin thinking about their world.

The Traditional Crib: Milk Street uses simple spindles against those thick textured frames to make this collection True to its name. Classically contemporary, we love the symmetry and height of this small-scale, show stopper. While two-toned and textured, this crib will catch your eye and capture your mind. The traditional True crib is ideal for that smaller space nursery.  

Safety Features

ALL OF OUR CRIBS AND CASE GOODS ARE TESTED ABOVE AND BEYOND THE MOST RIGOROUS STANDARDS. WE MEET/EXCEED ALL OF THE MOST CURRENT SAFETY STANDARDS SET BY CPSC/ASTM. WE ADD VOLUNTARY MEASURES TO EXCEED US REQUIREMENTS WITH REGARD TO PHYTHALATES AND HEAVY METALS.

OUR PRODUCTION METHODS AND THE MATERIALS WE USE ARE CONTINUALLY BEING REVIEWED AND RETESTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE EVER CHANGING STANDARDS FOR CONSTRUCTION AND COATINGS.


Convertible High-Back Crib (4-in-1)

All of our 4-in-1 cribs are convertible and are built from solid, sturdy, grade-A hardwood. Designed with stationary sides and no moving parts for safety. This crib fits a standard size crib mattress with mattresses sold separately.  After your nursery needs have been met, your crib transitions into a toddler bed, daybed, and adult full-size bed. These four modes allow your crib to convert and grow with your child. All of our high-back convertible cribs (4-in-1) offer a 3 position, metal mattress support system. When your baby is first born, you will want to keep your mattress at the top or highest position. As your baby starts standing, you will know it is time to lower the heights. By the time your baby begins to pull up, usually around 5-6 months, the mattress height should be at its lowest point. Keep your mattress height in its lowest position when using your crib as a tot bed. Another name for this type of 4-in-1 crib is “high back’ crib, meaning it has a back or headboard that is higher than the other three sides. A high back crib makes a beautiful full-size bed because of the nice high back which will ultimately serve as a headboard when attached to a standard metal bedframe (frame sold separately).

Convertible Traditional Crib (3-in-1)

All of our 3-in-1 cribs are convertible and are built from solid, sturdy, grade-A hardwood. Designed with stationary sides; no moving parts for safety. This crib fits a standard size crib mattress with mattresses sold separately. After your nursery needs have been met, your crib transitions into a tot bed, and a daybed that becomes a casual napping spot for any room in the house. These three modes allow your crib to convert and grow with your child. All of our traditional, convertible cribs offer a 3 position, metal mattress support system. When your baby is first born, you will want to keep your mattress at the top or highest position. As your baby starts standing, you will need to lower the heights. As your baby starts standing, you will know it is time to lower the heights. By the time your baby begins to pull up, usually around 5-6 months, the mattress height should be at its lowest point. Another name for this type of 3-in-1 crib is a traditional crib. Instead of having a high back, the traditional crib has two high side rails where both the back and the front gates can be lowered (35”). This crib is great for smaller sized nurseries.

PLEASE DO NOT USE BUMPERS IN YOUR MILKSTREET CRIB.


CASES

All of our cases are artisan built out of solid wood construction. The cases in the True Collection do use MDF as one of our materials. In order to get a smooth modern look and feel, this material does work best. Our cases require no assembly. Corner blocks are added to case frames for reinforced stability. Drawer boxes are built large for extra storage space with 15mm thick, sturdy sides. Each individual drawer box is also built with corner blocks to add strength and integrity, keeping drawers squared up. English dovetail joinery is used to assure drawers last. This joinery technique assures the strongest durability and highest quality in your drawers (holds up to 100lbs). We make our dovetails themselves extra deep, adding even more strength to a technique known, world-wide, as the highest of construction standards! The interiors of our drawers are sanded multiple times, then clear coated on all sides with a smooth finish to assure nothing will snag clothing. We use full-extension, high grade metal drawer glides, mounted underneath drawer bottoms to assure optimum operation for the life of your case.  These mechanisms are also self-closing, which not only keeps your nursery quiet, but helps protect tiny fingers from slamming drawers! The backs of all Milk Street cases are finished, and screwed on for longevity; never stapled. The bottoms of all our cases feature a cedar dust catcher to keep clothes dust free and also to help protect woolen items. Up to 30 sets of hands will touch each Milk Street piece before it passes final inspection. Each case, as well as the hutch/bookcase includes anti-tipping hardware and foot levelers with instructions for ease of application and use.


Standard Features

In addition to the features above, below shows specific features that come standard on the various pieces within each collection.

5-Drawer Dresser-(also called a 5-drawer high chest) We continue to try to implement an anti-tip drawer locking system. While we have not gotten there yet, this is a goal we are striving for! Milk Street is currently the only child-focused, furniture company truly addressing this relevant issue. In light of several incidents involving chests tipping and falling over, we are making the safety of our 5-drawer, the one tall case we produce, a priority.  By law, the anti-tip hardware is included and must be attached to a wall stud for optimal efficiency.The safety of you and your child is an area where we will continue to make strides ensuring that Milk Street is providing you with the best furniture for your baby. The two top drawers on all our 5-drawer dressers have single, inside dividers creating separate storage sections within the drawers for added organization.

3-Drawer Dresser-(also called a changing table) Milk Street’s 3-drawer dressers offers top drawer inside dividers, making three separate storage sections for added organization. The top drawer comes standard with LED drawer light which is motion sensitive. It turns on automatically when you open the drawer, turns off after drawer has been closed for 15 seconds to save power. The 3-drawer dresser works beautifully as a diaper changing table when paired with our changing tray. This tray has a felt covered underside and mounting hardware to allow for it to be used with the 3-drawer dresser without scratching the finish on top. Tray hardware mounts to back of the case creating a secure spot to change baby. Once baby grows up, remove the changing tray and you have a useful double drawer dresser for the life of your child. Changing tray is an accessory sold separately through Milk Street.

2-Drawer Nightstand– Milk Street’s nightstand has a top drawer that comes standard with a motion sensitive LED drawer light. It turns on automatically when you open the drawer and turns off after drawer has been closed for 15 seconds to save power. Our nightstand also comes standard with our favorite feature, an undermount nightlight. The nightlight uses 2 easily changeable AAA batteries and comes with an under-case light for nighttime convenience. This soft light has three levels of brightness so you can work at night without waking your little one or your partner if used alongside an adult bed. The electrical cord is conveniently housed in back of case, designed with room for cord storage when not in use. It plugs into a standard electrical outlet. Our nightstand also comes with a USB port on its backside so mom/dad/grandparent can charge their phone while rocking baby or getting that much needed sleep. Our nightstand also works great as a side table next to your glider/rocker in the nursery. In addition to a USB port, we included an electrical outlet to warm a bottle or to plug in a humidifier. We tried to think of everything you need to care for your precious baby because that’s our goal!

Hutch/Bookcase– Milk Street’s 2-shelf hutch is finished beautifully on top so you can choose to use it atop our double dresser or set it on the floor and use it as a bookcase. On the base, or bottom shelf, four screw-on feet and mounting hardware are included with the hutch/bookcase to make it a truly substantial bookcase. We also include an anti-tip hardware kit to be used for added stability whether it is functioning as a hutch or as a bookcase. The underside of the hutch is covered with a thick felt to protect the top of your 6-drawer dresser. All of the shelves on our hutch/bookcase are adjustable and come with self-locking clips. We include a light you can affix to the underside of one shelf to enhance the display of decorative items on its shelves. This light can also serve as a nightlight for your baby or toddler. It can be recharged through the use of the included USB cable.A new addition to the hutch bookcase for 2019 is our clothing rod option. We want you to have optimal flexibility with this piece. Use some or a mix of all of our pieces included to totally customize your nursery. You will find a cut-out on the bottom edge of the hutch so you can slide wires through when choosing to put a TV or computer on the case top. This cut-out, while a simple feature, will keep electrical wires out of sight and reach of small hands. Make sure if you are using this piece as a bookcase on the floor that you install the front two legs at the correct height (slightly higher) as shown in the assembly manual. It should sit slightly higher in front, so that the bookcase leans back, keeping the weight of the bookcase against the wall. Just one more thing Milk Street does to keep everything as childproof as possible!

Adult Bed Rails– (Includes bed rails, set of 6-slats, set of center support legs and all the hardware needed to convert your crib into a full size bed.) Unlike most convertible crib companies, we include center support legs to offer families a substantial adult bed conversion as they extend the life and value of their crib. Our full size conversion accommodates a full size mattress. A a full size box springs/mattress foundation is recommended also if converting with both the headboard and footboard from your crib. If using our Low Profile Footboard with your adult rails, there is no need for a box spring. Mattress and mattress foundation are sold separately. Milk Street bed rails turn your crib into that extra bed for a guest or a nanny! Our high back cribs make gorgeous adult beds with rails that offer two height options! Once again, Milk Street furniture is built with love for the life of your child.

Toddler Conversion Kit-(tot rail, stabilizer bar, and hardware to convert your crib into a toddler bed, and a day bed) You will want to use your crib as a tot bed and as a daybed in its lowest mattress position as your toddler learns to come and go when they wake. Make sure you keep your crib’s instruction manual to ensure that the guardrail is assembled correctly and the rail you have is 100% compatible with your crib.

Changing Table Tray– Use Milk Street’s removable tray to house a changing pad and convert your 3-drawer dresser or 6-drawer dresser into a changing table/ dresser combo. The changing tray works beautifully with either dresser depending on the size of your nursery. The underside of tray is covered with a thick felt to protect the top. Mounting hardware is included to secure your tray. We strongly recommending getting a standard pad with safety strap attached for added security while in use. We have also just added a second piece of hardware which allows for our changing tray to be used along with the hutch. Another feature few companies think about! Remember to always keep your baby within arm’s reach while changing and never leave them unattended.

Low Profile Footboard– This popular Milk Street piece can be used when converting your crib to the full size bed if you do not want to use the front gate of the crib. We believe that the low profile footboard adds a newness to your conversion that can accentuate the look of the adult bed by making the headboard more pronounced! The low profile footboard works perfectly with the adult bed rails and the hardware used in converting the crib to a full size bed. It’s just one more choice you have to add longevity to that Milk Street purchase.
