for the babes :: oeuf

My friend Christina just happens to be expecting a little girl in September. [stay tuned for more on Christina in July!] She also sits next to me at work every day, which makes stumbling upon adorable baby websites extra exciting. In her search for the perfect crib, she came across Oeuf, a charming little site run by Sophie Demenge and Michael Ryan, a husband/wife – American/French team. A quick peek at the site clearly shows their impeccable taste, but a closer look reveals a little bit more.

Oeuf began back in 2002, after the birth of the couples’ first child. As part of a new generation of design-conscious and environmentally aware parents they had to consider a cross-section of factors as they endeavored to clarify the modern nursery. Rather than producing a multitude of products, they decided to streamline the accommodations of their new lifestyle into a few essential pieces. Oeuf’s mission has become to make those essentials practical and stylish, without compromising quality and safety – their top priority. Their designs are thoughtful and focused on three key principals: quality, practicality and function – all packaged in beautiful design. It’s about a few essential, high quality and multifunctional, pieces that resonate with today’s cash strapped consumers. [biographical info pulled with love from oeuf’s about us page].

Christina discovered a fantastic sale yesterday and scooped up two adorable little dresses this morning. I would highly encourage you moms (and dads) out there to check these darling little items out and grab yours before it’s too late. Sales like these don’t come around all the time and in the case of cute baby clothes, they’re not to be missed!

And really… how can you argue with a site that has the following listed as their mission (see the full version here)

Be good designers.
Simple, clean, intuitive products that are easy and safe to use; made with quality craftsmanship that will last from generation to generation; designed with a European sensibility that is fun and stylish reflecting the needs and lifestyle of today’s modern families.

Be good people.

Respect the people who work with us and treat them fairly whether employees, artisans, retailers or consumers. Provide a safe and supportive working environment that allows working families to live and thrive in the United States, Europe and abroad. Honor cultural traditions, diversity and local values. Pay people living wages that enable them to live healthy fulfilling lives and send their own children to school.

Be good to the planet.

Use natural, renewable, recyclable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products. Employ eco-conscious manufacturing processes that promote low emissions and sustainability.

Be Good is not just something we say– its something we mean. As parents, we want our children to inherit a world that is better than we found it. As Oeuf, we have the ability to make that happen.

Oeuf
Be Good.
