The Milk Street Baby Story

Safety is front of mind in all of Milk Street’s products. All of our products surpass even California’s high crib safety standards. Our team of experts stay current with the ever changing, safety standards in the juvenile industry, reviewing any new legislature being considered by CPSC and ASTM.  We take our responsibility for the safety of your child very seriously. We want you to sleep soundly (or sleep as much as you can with a newborn!) with the peace of mind that your child is in the best and safest crib out there.

At Milk Street, we  believe in open communication and transparency with regards to our materials, finishes and our timelines. ALL OUR FINISHES ARE GREEN GUARD GOLD CERTIFIED. (LINK TO THE CERTS  We strive to educate new parents about specific details of finishing, test results, and the chemical contents of our coatings, metal parts, and even our packaging. While many companies don’t like to talk about these details, at Milk Street we will. We want our customers to fully understand what all this means for their new baby.

We also carry this communication piece to our exclusive and highly valued retail partners. THEY ARE WELL EDUCATIONED AND OFFER YOU A PLACE TO PHYSICALLY TOUCH AND FEEL OUR PRODUCTS. THEY ALSO OFFER A GREAT SUPPORT SYYSTEM FOR YOU AS YOUR FAMILY GROWS AND YOUR FURNITURE CONVERTS.

Just like pregnancy, all good things take time! Our furniture is artisan crafted. Given their handmade and hand-finished nature, variations are to be expected and celebrated. Each item is unique and no two are exactly alike. Images on our websites and items shown in our galleries may vary from your actual piece.

Milk Street offers a 5 year warranty against all manufacturing defects, including our finish (if not abused).

 

We pride ourselves on finishing.

Our finishing process involves 20 steps and is hand-applied by the best trained finishers in the furniture business.

Each individual finish we use has been developed exclusively for Milk Street by the incredible team of artists and color specialists at AKZONOBEL.  After weeks of reviewing pantone’s and formulas to the many distressing techniques, we have achieved a look and feel that makes our furniture special. We created finishes that will draw you in and fill your eye. AGAIN, ALL ARE GREEN GUARD GOLD CERTIFIED.

We willingly reveal the chemical breakdowns of each and every level of our finishes to educate you on the contents of our coatings. Even on our imported products, we voluntarily meet the EPA guidelines for emissions. Just one more step we take to do our part, not only on a person to person level, but on a global one.

 

Our furniture is engineered in the USA, built and finished by hand, and ready to ship!

At least 20 sets of  skilled hands will have touched your nursery furniture before it ships!  From construction to finishing to packing,  our artisans and woodworkers have built your collection with precision. Just like pregnancy, all good things take time! While our nursery furniture takes a minimum 12-16 weeks to build, we pride ourselves on staying fully stocked so you don’t have to wait! You’re expecting a baby and you want this piece to be done long before he or she arrives. Let us take some of the stress out of planning for your new family.

 

What makes us different you ask?
