Not that I get obsessed with interior things and have to find them RIGHT NOW or anything, but I have become *slightly* partial to Jenny Lind beds.
Slight problem? They’re only available in the US at Land of Nod, so of course I have decided that this is the bed I want for Lila’s soon-to-be-big-girl bedroom. (Their site does say it ships internationally, but I dare not ask the cost…)
By the way, who on earth was Jenny Lind? Well, she was a Swedish opera singer who took Europe by storm in the 19th Century, earning the moniker The Swedish Nightingale. When she sailed to New York in 1850, a crowd of over 40,000 admirers greeted her. Bieber, eat your heart out.
Lots of things were named after her because of her popularity, but this cottage-style spindled furniture is called Jenny Lind because she apparently slept in a bed with turned spindle posts. So now you know.
And if Land of Nod decide to set up a UK-based outlet, please let me know.
