So new parents spend a lot of time awake at night trying to get a newborn to sleep and this Goodnigt Glider from Nurseryworks at Mod Decor would be a great way to do the job. It has the cushioning of an armchair, but it's on a gliding wooden base that is sleeker than the traditional glider.

One of my friends recently found out she is pregnant, so I've got adorably cool baby on the mind. This mobile from theStarcraft's Etsy shop is something I'm hoping to get her if it's a girl. I love the bright colors with just a little bit of sparkle to really catch the baby's eye. Plus, it kind of reminds me of a quilting square, so I might have to get one for inspiration in my quilting space.

These bright wallpapers from Ferm Living at 2Modern are a great combination of rich, saturated colors and an earthy, natural feel. I love the contrast of white on the teal of the Family Tree wallpaper, but the Wildflower wallpaper is a but more subtle. While you could just put it up on one wall or even just a strip or two, doing a whole room or a hallway would have a real impact.

This couch, for lack of a better word, is called Misfits by Ron Arad and can be found at Moroso. It's more mismatched topographical puzzle pieces than couch. There are a few differently shaped squares, some with backs, some with corners, some just flat, that you can mix and match to make any piece of living room furniture that you desire. I personally like the big chaise lounge configuration; it just looks perfect to melt into with a good book.

I love these great tables from Lorimer Antiques. While I don't think they're actually antiques, it looks like they use salvaged wood to get that look. They're built very simply, but have a great strong, clean look. And there;s plenty of room to invite everyone to dinner.

I had one bean bag chair when I was a kid. It was plastic and purple and one of the seams ripped, little styrofoam beads got tracked all over the house, and I never got another bean bag chair. But these ones from Fatboy come in a variety of fabrics, including Marimekko. Plus, they're super reinforced and you can order refills so they always stay like new. Besides, they looks super comfortable.

These plates from notNeutral feature street maps from every city that I want to visit. It would be cool to get one for every trip you take and then complete the set. Or you could just get the entire collection and pretend.

These punched metal lanterns from notNeutral are a great way to bring candle light into a house in a completely new way. When lit, they give off a beautiful design on table tops and walls, and almost create their own doilies.

I completely fell in love with this desk yesterday at Pottery Barn. It's painted an awesome olivey-green color to such a smooth almost waxy finish. And it has a huge drawer that's already partitioned into a bunch of different sections, perfect for hiding all the clutter on your desk.

These Tripp Trapp chairs from Stokke are a great alternative to the standard white plastic high chairs every parent seems to get stuck with when they have a child. Not only do they let your kids eat at the table with your family instead of from their own tray, as your kids get bigger, you can adjust the seat and foot rest to be a booster seat or a step stool.

This Mizuya wall unit from Green Tea Design is perfect for so many rooms. It provides a lot of different storage spaces, and in a number of different sizes, finishes, and hardware. Plus, it makes my inner compulsive organizer completely happy.
