Ever wonder where the stars turn when it comes time to decorate their baby’s nursery? Look no further than Monte Design Group, a Canadian-based design company that counts celebs including Halle Berry, Amy Poehler, Christina Applegate and Kourtney Kardashian as their biggest fans.

The collection includes everything from high chairs to bassinets, but the gliders are by far the biggest standouts. Each style is a beautiful and can last beyond the late-night rocking and feeding stage, which is nice considering it’s a big investment. Our fave? The Luca glider ($995, above), which like the rest of the line is available in two nursery-friendly fabrics (micro suede and bonded leather) in a wide range of color combinations.

We also love the Ninna-Nanna bassinet ($395). It features a removable (and portable) bassinet that rests atop a gorgeous dark wood rocker base. With the same clean lines as the rest of Monte’s furniture, this bassinet would look perfect in any stylish décor.

And just so that bigger kids aren’t left out, there are even little Cubino chairs and loveseats ($109 to $139) that are just their size.

Even better? All the furniture is handmade in Canada and crafted from superior, eco-friendly materials including seed-based foam, water-based and biodegradable adhesives, Oeko-Tex certified fabrics and FSC-certified wood.

I’m a big fan of the Luca. We bought one when I had my son 3 years ago for his room and we loved it so much that we bought another for my infant daughter’s nursery. They are a great size for smaller rooms, hold up well, are very comfy, and will transition easily to another room in our house. They are pricey, but have been well worth the investment for us.

Monte makes the greatest chairs. We looked for so long to find the best glider, and kept coming back to the luca glider. We are soo happy with it. Simply the best and most comfortable.. Their new Joya rocker looks pretty cool too.

I like these rockers, and the best thing is, that you can just keep using it after the baby/toddler years as it will fit into any room (unless you chose a coulour that doesn’t)
