These seriously stylish bassinets deliver unmistakable charm to your space while keeping your newborn close by so that you don't miss any of those incredibly exhausting but fleetingly precious moments.

Go completely classic with this woven bassinet that can be customized with different skirts — tailored, ruffled or pleated — all of which create timeless appeal. For extra storage, there's a shelf underneath, which can be removed so that you can carry it throughout the house.
This affordable option will keep you on-budget without sacrificing everything you need for your baby's first sleeping spot. Breathable fabric creates a cool, comfy space and the base has two modes: rocking for calming baby and stationary for sleeping.
The circular quilted design with matching sheer panels on each side for airflow adds a mod geometric touch to your bedroom, while the soft neutral shades work with any color palette. Custom-designed wheels are hidden in the rockers so that you can lift and glide the bassinet with ease.
Co-sleepers are often not the most stylish bassinets, though they provide wonderful convenience. This streamlined bamboo one has a chic modern aesthetic, keeps your baby close by so you can sleep soundly knowing she's safe and allows you to reach her easily for nighttime feedings.
A parent-favorite for small spaces, the Stokke mini crib is the epitome of minimalist Scandinavian design. The solid beech wood oval shape grows with your child; the mattress height is adjustable and bed extensions (sold separately) allow your kid to use this bassinet from newborn to 10 years old.
Elegant and streamlined, this bassinet's style starts from the ground up with walnut rockers and a copper-plated steel frame. The handcrafted base is topped with a micro-suede cover that's removable and machine-washable — always a plus with anything involving a baby.
While this may be the priciest bassinet on our list, the revolutionary design has parents in love with its safety and sleep training features. The included swaddles attach to the bassinet so that baby stays sleeping on her back, reducing the risk of SIDS. Then, the cradle uses white noise and gentle rocking motions to help her go to sleep. It even adjusts the settings if she gets fussy or you can customize them from the built-in app. The gradual weaning feature helps your newborn transition from the bassinet to the crib.
