Take Your Seats: The Best Designer Furniture For Kids

Tripp Trapp® Wheat Yellow with Sweet Butterfly cushion.

By Joseph Lim

Splurging on designer furnishings and objects should not be limited to adults. Parents who dote on their kids understand that a well-designed child’s product can reap benefits for many years to come. Not only are these objects made to last, these respectable brands use high-quality materials that do not harm children. While some may quibble about the cost, think about the worthy investment for your future brood. Helen Shang, a freelance interior designer, says: “They are so well made and well designed. These top designers work with reputed furniture brands to produce high-quality products. Their aesthetics have also been taken into consideration – no sharp edges and forms, and scale befitting of kids’ bodies. What’s not to love?”

Some parents are inclined to agree. Charlie Chang, a father of two boys, says: “Initially, we baulked at the price but we thought about our children’s future. These are beautiful products that will last and I’m looking at expanding our brood. They will come in handy for sure.”
