As you know if you've read All the Things You Don't Need For A Newborn, babies don't need as much clobber as you might think if you gorged on baby magazines for an afternoon. But one of the things that is useful, especially if you suffer from backache, is a waist-height, nappy-changing area.
Silver Cross's Soho nursery furniture set includes a patented changer unit. Here it is shown folded away, but this tiny table top pops out and expands into a reasonably roomy changing area. Underneath, there are three deep storage drawers, whilst the wardrobe features adjustable shelving and hanging space, which can grow with your child. It doesn't look like nursery furniture either, so, when baby's ready for school, he or she won't be able to claim it's babyish. There is also a matching Soho cotbed, shown in cot formation here.
