A Chair That Will Follow You From Cradle Till Long Time
Few things derail your editing schemes like children. Clothes often need to be changed multiple times a day. They grow out of those same clothes every few months. Most of their toys have a six month half-life. Then there are innumerable accessories from cribs to strollers to baby bathtubs that thwart the most earnest minimalist aspirations.
Given all of this, if you’re a parent and there are products that reduce the amount of stuff your child requires, you should probably get them. The Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair is such an item. Its simple, classic design allows it to be useful from infancy to adulthood.
The inverted seven shaped base has slots that accommodate either a seat or footrests. As your child grows, you lower the seat and footrests in the slots to the appropriate height. You can even remove the footrest and use it as an adult height chair, making this a great piece of furniture for people like grandparents who frequently have children visitors, but for whom a dedicated high chair takes up too much space.
The seats start around $200 and go up depending on the material. Oak and walnut version are available that are quite a bit more expensive; these options are worth considering as this could easily be an item kept for many years.
