Emerson Collections

Our Emerson Collection at Pottery Barn Kids offers comfort, beauty and durability that grows with your baby. Emerson cribs are constructed of solid pine wood. Master craftsmen build the cribs to meet the highest standards of comfort and safety. The collection comes in neutral tones that are sure to complement the other pieces of furniture in the nursery. Whether you buy matching pieces or combine furniture in different tones, your nursery is sure to be stunning. Mixing furniture with differing neutral tones provides a rich look that offers added visual interest, while selecting pieces of the same tone creates a sleek and uniform look.


Your baby’s safety is of paramount importance. All of Pottery Barn Kid’s cribs are rigorously tested by independent laboratories. Each crib meets or exceeds the safety standards outlined by the American Society for Testing and Materials. Buying a new crib for each of your children ensures the crib meets the latest safety standards. It’s advisable to select a crib with railings that are at least 26" high and no more than 2.4" between the rails.


Experts also recommend purchasing your baby’s mattress at the same time you purchase the crib. The mattress should snugly fit inside the crib with no more than two fingers width between the mattress and crib. Many cribs allow you to adjust the height level of the mattress. A higher level makes it easier to take the baby out of the crib. However, once your baby is able to pull up, usually around six months, it’s recommended that you lower the mattress to the lowest level.


When your baby can climb out of the crib, it’s advisable to immediately move to a toddler bed. Convertible cribs make that transition a matter of minutes. Instead of buying a new bed, convertible cribs transform into toddler beds to maximize the furniture’s usage. Conversion kits make it easy to transform your baby’s convertible crib to a toddler bed too. Side railings keep your toddler safely in the bed throughout the night even when tossing and turning.


When selecting bedding for the crib, limiting the bedding to a fitted bottom sheet and a waterproof mattress pad keeps your baby safe and keeps the mattress dry. Adding a crib skirt offers more beauty and softens the look of the nursery. Selecting a crib skirt that’s machine washable makes cleaning it a snap. For added convenience, end of crib hanging organizers allow you to keep linens, pajamas and other essentials within easy reach. Monogramming the organizer with your baby’s name offers an added personal touch.


A mobile featuring playful animals and soothing music gives your baby something to gaze at while being lulled to sleep by the melody. It’s recommended that the mobile be placed far outside of your baby’s reach. Be sure to remove the mobile once the baby can push up on hands and knees, usually at about five months.


Dressers crafted with kiln dried wood provide added strength. Multistep finishes that are sealed with child safe lacquer ensure your baby’s safety and offer added beauty. Installing a tip kit that secures the dresser to the wall keeps it secure and upright as your baby grows and becomes increasingly active.


Selecting a dresser with a topper that serves as a changing table maximizes your nursery’s space. When your baby outgrows the topper, simply take it off. Changing table pads constructed with a durable vinyl cover and a nonskid bottom lock out moisture and keep the pad in place. Changing pad covers made with 100 percent cotton, luxe chamois or pure organic cotton velour offer your baby added softness and comfort. Placing storage containers with diapers, baby wipes, lotion and other essentials next to the changing pad makes changing diapers quick and easy.


Placing a nightstand by the rocking chair provides added storage and the ideal place to set a lamp and a few favorite books for bedtime stories. Consider storing a couple of blankets on the bottom shelf for that coveted snuggle time.
