I love the idea of creating a space for my daughter and her friends to color, have a tea party and play games. But finding room for a table and chairs set often seems like a luxury when space and design are concerns. Most folding tables and chairs feature kiddie designs that don't mesh well with a modern nursery.
Bloom's Otto table and chairs ($450) should catch the eye of mod tot moms given its clean, eco-friendly look. The set, which is designed for kids 18 months and older, features ergonomic chairs that nest within the table, along with two - dishwasher-safe - sliding plastic art trays designed to keep paintbrushes, crayons and markers neatly put away. Made from cultivated stylewood with a low VOC finish, the set is lead, BPA, PVC and phthalates-free and just may encourage your child to put things away.
