(All photos courtesy of Stokke)Can a kiddie chair accurately be described as iconic? In the case of the Tripp Trapp chair from Scandinavian brand Stokke, it's not just hyperbole—the 1972 beech-wood design is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art. And now with the introduction of a new color, Storm Grey, the Tripp Trapp is more worthy than ever of a seat at the (grownup) table.
Because I have two toddlers of my own and have put in my fair share of time with the playpen/bouncer/baby-swing scenario, I can fully appreciate the pared-down beauty of the Tripp Trapp's form—and how it seamlessly integrates into multiple situations around your home. I'm ashamed to remember how much I spent on so-called baby necessities that were outgrown after only a matter of months. But given that this chair can hold up to 300 lbs, it can easily transition into a home office accessory that works with a wide array of decorating styles.
No more ugly high chair in a corner at dinnertime. In keeping with its wonderfully inclusive (and very Scandinavian) philosophy, Stokke makes it possible for baby to be at the table with the rest of the family. (Bonus points for the mismatched seating extravaganza in the photo above.) Keep the good stuff coming, Stokke.
