You've been coveting an Eames lounger, an Eero Aarnio ball chair, and a Knoll diamond chair for your living room for years, but why not take all that beautiful midcentury modern design into the nursery? All of those iconic chairs — and many more, like my personal favorite, the Philippe Starck Ghost Chair — come in kid-sized versions that will up your lil one's cool factor and give them a sweet place to sit. While these chairs still come with price tags that are only slightly less hefty than their full-size counterparts, they've all proven themselves to be classics. Keep reading to check out 10 mini mod chairs with seriously big style cred.
I love that my 10-month-old loves watching me in the kitchen. From her highchair, she will happily stuff her face with puffs and blueberries while I chop, mix, prep, and even empty the dishwasher. I've never considered that she might soon need a more interactive kitchen experience, but after seeing The FunPod from Luca & Company, I'm reconsidering. The unique kid product, developed by a mom from England, keeps your child in a safe spot — away from electrical and hot appliances — while you go about your kitchen business, but it also allows them to easily see what you're doing and even help. The pod is adjustable, with five settings to keep it at chest level for 12-month-olds to 5-year-olds.
The FunPod isn't cheap (buy it through BabyEarth for $190), but it's won multiple awards and has a loyal following. So would you invest in a FunPod for your lil one? Weigh in below.
It's easy to have a love-hate relationship with Ikea. The prices are ideal for outfitting lil ones' rooms with practical, stylish furniture, but with that low price moms often have to sacrifice color and design. Sure, you can paint the stark white pieces, but with all of the wear and tear kids put their rooms through, it's only a matter of time before the paint starts chipping and the white under-layer is showing.
That's where MyKea comes in. The Dutch design company has identified the most popular Ikea furniture items and created removable, graphic vinyl prints (ranging from $42 to $65) that can be applied directly to the furniture. With a slew of kid-friendly designs — think the Little Mister and Little Miss characters, SpongeBob, and some fun original creations including DJ equipment, aliens, and numerals — kids' rooms can quickly be transformed to show off lil ones' personalities.
As the largest land mammal, elephants are symbols of power, strength, and wisdom. Elephants are über trendy among the pint-sized crowd and the lovable animals can be found everywhere — as a child's cuddly toy, a storybook character or a midcentury modern stool, to name a few! These two stools depict the pachyderms in different ways. Which do you prefer?
- Simple: Vitra's Elephant Stool ($145) is a reproduction of the original 1954 stool designed by Sori Yanagi. Made from recyclable polypropylene, it's lightweight, stackable, and easy to clean!
- Swank: Vitra's Eames Elephant ($290) is a reproduction of the limited-edition midcentury plywood toy elephant designed by Charles and Ray Eames. Available for the first time ever in plastic, this little guy will quickly become your tot's new best friend.
Mid-century modern, often referred to as "mod" or retro, is making a huge comeback. Harry Bertoia's collection of chairs are classic pieces from the modern era and loved by contemporary furniture collectors worldwide. Mini replicas of Bertoia's famous chairs are now available for tots to enjoy as well. Is your child a modernist in training?
Simple: Little Bert ($89) is an inexpensive alternative that resembles a Bertoia side chair. It fits well into small spaces and it's easy for kids to move around.
