London’s finest with design that rocks


Why is it that
toddlers always want to rock backwards on a chair — any chair? And it doesn’t
matter how many times they crash backwards or land with a thump on their bum,
they’ll be back for more tomorrow.

If you, like me, are so over the sound of
your own voice repeating ìOn your bottom please, and don’t rock back,î when
trying to get your child seated safely then perhaps a different tack is needed.

It’s such a
simple idea I can’t believe it didn’t occur earlier — both my kids will love
rocking out in this super stylish chair by UK product designer Alexander Taylor
(and I can rest assured knowing they won’t cause too much damage to their heads
or bums).

The Kids Rock
chair comes with an impressive design pedigree too — Taylor was dubbed UK
design magazine Elle Decoration’s Young Designer of the Year 2005 and also won
the Best in Lighting category the same year for his Fold lamp (which is now in
a permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York).

The Kids Rock
chair is produced by trendy London manufacturer Thorsten van Elten for whom
Taylor has also produced the Paris rug and antler-shaped powder-coated coat

The Kids Rock
chair, 43x63x53cm, has an English oak frame with rubber inlay and comes in
tomato red, lime green, and pastel pink, blue or yellow. At around $560 a pop (250 Pounds) this is as much a
design investment as it is a functional piece of kids’ furniture.
