Modern Wall Mounted Changing Table
Urban dwellers living in cramped quarters will appreciate Swedish designer Bo Ekström’s Nathi changing table, made from Forestry Stewardship Council certified birch and finished with non-toxic, water-based lacquer. Mountable to your wall at any height, where it folds open or shut with one hand, the contoured bent-plywood changing table saves not only space, but also your back. In addition to two built-in shelves for storing the preponderance of baby-related essentials, the changing table also includes a machine-washable cotton pad in your choice of mossy green or ivory.
It's great looking and obviously handy, but I'm not sure why it's $750.
