Furnish the baby’s room with a few pieces from this precocious collection and you could be forgiven for wanting to move in. Or steal the stuff for your own room: Many of the storage pieces here are meant to outlast childhood—a changing table from Brooklyn-based Argington easily converts to a dresser ($795), and the surface of a play table from New York’s DucDuc is chalkboard on one side and smooth lacquered paint on the other ($595). Less of a commitment is the witty selection of designer toys and digital prints by J. D. Boujnah, a graphic designer, who, with French expat Stephane Gerbier, is the store’s impeccably discerning owner.
