Gaia Baby is born

Gaia Baby is a brand new Irish company, founded by Joanne O’Grady (of Irish distribution company Clever Clogs) & her UK based partner, Karl Millergill.

Joanne and Karl’s many years of experience both parenting and working in the nursery industry inspired the duo to challenge the common held belief that “a cot is a cot” and that innovation in furniture was impossible.

After 3 years in development, the duo has officially unveiled Gaia Baby’s first collection. Collaborating with Dolmen Design to bring their vision to life, the Gaia Serena Collection is a suite of timeless furniture, specially crafted to serve multiple functions while carrying new parents through the family journey. 

Speaking about the Gaia Serena Collection, Joanne O’Grady, founder of Gaia Baby said: ‘Having a new baby is one of the most exciting and joyful moments in family life. In our industry, we are so lucky to be involved in the journey expectant parents take getting their most essential purchases sorted. It struck me that, whilst most parents aspire to beautifully designed things, often practicality or budget, win out over beauty! 
"With the Gaia Baby Serena Collection, Karl and I wanted to create something that was both practical and beautiful, something that delivers more than the norm and makes good financial sense - a brand that brings design led form and function to parent’s everyday lives." 

Gaia Serena Complete Sleep
The signature piece of the Gaia Serena collection is the Complete Sleep (RRP €699.90). With its soft contours and smooth flowing lines, the Gaia Baby Complete Sleep creates a tranquil and calm environment for a baby’s sleep. As a generously sized Maxi Cot, it offers dual mattress height options for use from birth onwards. As baby grows to become an inquisitive toddler, the Complete Sleep provides a gentle transition to an easy access Toddler Bed. For the first steps towards independent sleeping, the Toddler Bed transitions smoothly to a First Bed for kids up to 5yrs olds. Made from 100% FSC certified solid birch, the aluminium clad feet and accents give this stunning piece a luxurious touch. Parts for all bed transitions are included with each purchase of the product. 

Gaia Serena Complete Sleep+/ Co-Sleep
As the popularity and safety benefits of co-sleeping become more widely accepted, Gaia Baby also introduces a global first with the Serena Collection’s Complete Sleep+/ Co-Sleep (RRP €799.90). The Complete Sleep+/Co-Sleep incorporates the first fully certified co-sleeping crib that can be converted into a full-size cot. The Gaia Serena Co-Sleeping Crib can be used from birth and its patent pending design features multi height adjustment, bespoke new-born mattress, handy storage shelf and a soft gauze front panel which means baby is visible all the time. Once your baby is ready to transition to a cot, simply convert your Serena Co-Sleeping crib into the Serena Maxi Cot. No waste, no bulky storage, just one single purchase to take you through every sleeping stage up to five years!

Gaia Serena Rocking / Feeding Chair & Footstool
Beautifully contoured with classic styling, the Gaia Serena Rocking / Feeding Chair (RRP €459.90) will add a contemporary feel to any nursery or living space.
