Celebrity Moms Thiessen, Paul Debut Nursery Furniture Collection
January 28, 2011,
ACTRESS TIFFANI THIESSEN of "Saved by the Bell" and "90210" fame, along with HGTV's "Design Star" finalist Lonni Paul, have teamed up to create Petit Nest, a new collection of infant furniture and bedding that debuted at the ABC Expo.
The pair was inspired when working on the design for Thiessen's daughter Harper, now 3 months old.
"A lot of the furniture looked the same," said Thiessen, and so she and Paul set to work on Petit Nest. Both women wanted the collection to be highstyle, American made and eco-friendly.
Cribs are manufactured in Bandera, Texas, and are made from an eco-friendly MDF with a water-based finish, and feature walnut, beech or white accents.

The line also includes glider rockers in four styles: the Odette, Ettienne, Luc and Camille, with wing back, curved, modern and tufted designs, and fabric choices in Sunbrella velvet, linen or linen/cotton blend. Retail price points range from $1,120 to $1,425. A childsize version of the Ettienne retails from $420 to $700, depending on fabric choice.
Crib bedding collections are produced in California, and are made of 100% cotton with eco-friendly dyes in muted tones and sophisticated patterns and motifs, including floral berry, damask and peacock.
The entire collection is designed to coordinate without being too "matchymatchy," said Thiessen. Paul said feedback was good at the show, with customers calling the line "fantastic" and "so different."
