Evolur Santa Fe 5-in-1 Convertible Crib - Storm Gray evolurbaby.com

Evolur is owned by Dream on Me, best known for their mini cribs and crib mattresses. Evolur marks a bit of a departure for the affordable Dream on Me brand, as it is a stand-alone nursery furniture brand in the upper-middle price point. (Dream on Me focuses on entry-level price point

Evolur’s team includes former Munire executives; hence, you’ll note the design style here is clearly influenced by Munire’s more adult looking nursery furniture. What do we mean by adult? Well, you’ll see little flourishes like this on the headboard:

Beyond the standard brown and white finishes, Evolur offers several gradations of grey as well as a two-tone grey and white option.

All in all, Evolur offers 12 cribs and nine dresser groupings. The most affordable crib (Windsor) runs $400, while most other styles are in the $450 to $700 range. Dressers run $500 to $700. Evolur is made in Vietnam.

Evolur is still relatively new, so there isn’t much real world feedback yet.  We did preview some samples and thought they looked good—the dressers feature full extension drawer glides, corner blocks, dovetail joints and deeper drawers on the bottom. The cribs and dressers are made of poplar and rubberwood, which is common in this price point.

In the past month, we’ve heard from a retailer who said Evolur has done a good job with deliveries, with very few damage or quality issues. So far so good.

One critical note: we weren’t thrilled to see upholstery on the inside of some crib styles, including the Julienne. That would be a nightmare to clean.

We’re initiating our rating of this company as a B—good quality and design. Rating: B
