About the RELIC Collection
Architectural elements and a love for texture and depth inspired Relic.
Big and solid. Yet it’s in the fine print, the details, where we define the Relic collection.
noun: relic; an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest.
synonyms: artifact, historical object, ancient object, antiquity, antique
This collection features thick chunky posts, clean and simple lines with the nostalgia of an old barn.
With flat faces, solid planes of hardwood, and simple profiles, you will fall in love with this collection.
The thick case tops and crib rails complement the grandness and girth of this collection.
Finishes: We finish Relic in an artisan applied, distressed grey tone that begs to be touched
A Milk Street signature color is the only choice for this crib. Fossil is a pickled, elephant grey. The tones will change with your decor and the light that surrounding it. This finish was developed exclusively for us; it is the perfect grey.
This collection offers two uniquely separate crib options. Both are convertible 4-in-1 cribs to help grow with your infant.
The Arched Crib: This Milk Street 4-in-1 crib boasts gracefully arched top-cap on the back bringing forth feelings of grandeur into your nursery. Split back panels remind us of antique barn board, spaced carefully to let rays of morning sunlight thru to warm your baby. We have added subtle, architectural details to make this well-loved bell top design feel fresh. This Relic crib is not just another arched crib.
The Batten Crib: This 4-in-1 crib offers a transitional, flat top and vertical batten’s applied much like those you’d find on the sides of a New England Barn. This Milk Street crib can be considered modern, or traditional, making it transitional enough to use in any nursery! Through this collection, you will find great height and great girth; true of hand-built structures; true of Relic.
Where the Batten crib got its name. Board-and-batten —
Often called “board and batt” or “barn siding”, this building style has been used for centuries. The boards run vertically, with narrow strips to seal the cracks that form as the wood dries and shrinks. The early builders might not have understood exactly why wood moved, but they knew how to compensate for it. Rather than trying to hold it in place, they simply gave it room to breathe. The wider boards are put on first. They will shrink as much as 8 percent in width and thickness, which causes cracks to open up between them, no matter how tightly they fit when first installed. About 1/2 inch for 8-inch-wide boards. The bats come next, overlapping the boards enough to seal up the cracks between them. This sturdy style is exactly why we use it for our cribs
