The Bloom Otto children’s table and chairs set is
one way to keep the invasion of furniture at bay. When we have children, we see our spaces taken over with
the accoutrement of modern-day childhood. Of course this is also a wonderful thing as we welcome into our homes all manner of
beautiful objects, but some of us simply don’t have the space to accomodate it all.
The art of the Bloom Otto set is the way the chairs slide into the
inside of the table, and are completely obscured. The backs of the
chairs make the table appear to be one piece of furniture, and allow
you to free up some floor space when the children are in bed.
Every night, my husband and I diligently pack away the toys and move
the toddler chair and table to the side of the room, to claim back our
adult space. With the Otto, it’s as easy as clearing the top and moving
the chairs inside to cosy up together for the evening.
With the chairs pushed in, the Otto looks like a high-end side
table, superbly formed into a patented shape from stylewood in two
colours – mocha and natural. You can choose an optional centre panel in
orange, or plain wood. Each end has a slide out tray for
quick access and storage of art materials so the clutter is kept out of
sight. No assembly is required and it’s
suitable for use from 18 months on. With such beautiful
styling, the Otto is going on my wishlist!
