Boori Urbane Byron Cot Bed reviewed

Boori Urbane Byron Cot Bed

In a Nutshell
Best known for its Country range of premium nursery furniture but this Aussie firm’s online-only Urbane models (previously called King Parrot) offer much of the same quality for far less loot.

Features
Once your baby is big enough to clamber over the top of this dropside cot, you can whip both the sides off to form a toddler bed, or reinstate one to create a sofa able to seat two adults.

Practicality
The Byron’s principal virtue is its rugged nature – even the surliest angel won’t be kicking this solid timber cot apart in a hurry. Two mattress positions and one-handed dropside.

Wow Factor
Children remain surprisingly attached to their nursery furniture so it’s lovely to turn
their cot into a practical piece of furniture once they are more into Playstation than shape sorters.  

Nit-picking
The Byron is poetically named, but its quality makes it more of a pragmatic choice than a romantic one. It requires an Australian mattress, sold separately, which is a non-standard size (132x69.5cm).
