A family can never have too many children’s chairs in the house. They’re needed inside, outside, in the bedroom, in the playroom, at the coffee table, at the drawing table – the list goes on and on. Friends come to play at our house and I’ve noticed how they round up all the small seating and put it at the coffee table to play with our dollhouse, then the chairs all get shifted quickly to the next activity. It’s quite interesting and makes me chuckle but it can also be hard on little hands to do the carrying – and hard on our wood floors when the inevitable drop from slippery fingers occurs.
Enter the deliciously coloured, soft, pillowy and easily movable Square Chairs from Serena & Lily, which are designed and destined for all the uses mentioned above and more (even outside, just bring them in at night). The issue I’ve always had with cloth chairs for littlies is the cleanliness factor. I like a wipeable surface. But these chairs solve that dilemma with machine washable slipcovers. The Square Chairs also tick the ‘supportive seating’ box as they’re made from 100 per cent recycled polystyrene.
The chairs are only available from Serena and Lily’s US website for US$45 each or US$41 for two or more. You’ll need a freight forwarder to ship them to Australia.
