Kalon Studios [3]‘ Ioline Crib was recently awarded [4] one of the top 100 eco designs in the world in TIME Magazine’s “Green Design 100″ issue [5], and we’re equally impressed with the Ioline Dresser, which shares the same eco-friendly design qualities and aesthetic appeal. Kalon Studios, founded by husband-wife team Johannes Pauwen and Michaele Simmering, have created many innovative delights for tots, and we love their sustainably designed, modern IoLine Dresser [6] which is just as befitting for the nursery as it is for mom and dad’s bedroom. What a great, green concept if you’re sharing close quarters with baby.

At $1,795.00, this beautiful dresser may seem out of reach for many, but the IoLine is so beautiful and solidly made, that it is sure to become an heirloom piece, enjoyed for many generations. The IoLine Dresser, part of the IoLine Collection [10], was named for Pauwen and Simmering’s daughter Io, and was designed with a raised upper edge that securely holds the amazing IoLine Changing Trunk [11] as seen above.
