When it comes to children and dining, let’s face it, plastic high chairs don’t win any awards for style. In addition, with increasing global concern over sustainability, the plastic pollution issue comes into play; you will have to replace a plastic high chair when your child grows out of the toddler years, adding more waste to the environment. However, Norwegian brand Stokke has revolutionised the children’s chair market, designing adjustable wooden chairs for life. Its Tripp Trapp chairs tick all the boxes for sustainability, style and solid construction.
With increasing demand for sustainable products, this award-winning chair is a worthy investment. The seat and foot plate can be altered, adjusting to your child’s height and ability from six months up to adulthood. Fitting right up to a kitchen table, the Tripp Trapp chair is also cleverly designed for sociable family dining.
Created by acclaimed furniture designer Peter Opsvik and launched back in 1972, the Tripp Trapp chair has become one of those cult products to invest in. That’s not only because of growing concerns about sustainability but also because the chair has been ergonomically devised; your child will dine comfortably and it also helps to improve and support your child’s posture and developing spine.
The chair comes in a choice of colours and wood finishes to complement the decor in your kitchen, from blue, natural, moss green and black to chalk white, pink and brown. You can also order separate attachments according to your child’s age and needs, such as the addition of a baby set and a cushion for extra comfort. There is also a complimentary personalisation option; the back of the Tripp Trapp chair can be engraved with your child’s name.
