Shed a tear for the racecar bed, lost to childhood for evermore.

But whistle hello to beds lacquered with racecar enamel, available now from Itsy Bitsy Ritzy Shop.

Despite its Mother Goose name, Itsy doesn’t specialize in tots. They specialize in sleek, handcrafted furniture for small spaces – i.e., Manhattan apartments.

And their Manhattan Collection is lacquered with seven coats of the very same top-grade automotive enamel used on high-end sports cars.

The result: sleek, clean lines with details (ostrich-embossed leather headboards, baseball-stitched calfskin drawer handles) that offer a touch of machismo without overdoing it.

The husband-and-wife owners should know: their Connecticut home is so well-appointed that Ralph Lauren uses it for photo shoots.

IBR also hawks clever space-savers like suede chairs that fold out into a single-person sleeper and storage ottomans that double as end tables.

Gentlemen, start your engines.
