The style quotient of my kitchen was just markedly increased thanks to Stokke, who kindly sent us the Tripp Trapp chair and baby set to review for my son. I chose black to match our Thonet cafe chairs and my husband and I were extremely pleased with how it tastefully it fit in our little kitchen nook area. Compared to our previous high chair (which is not a garish plastic item, but quite nice), the Tripp Trapp has a remarkably small footprint and is a true chair, not a high chair.
Can you find the high chair in this picture?It is designed to slide right up to the table, which has enhanced the dynamic of our morning breakfasts together. He is happily sitting right there with us, not isolated on a perch (although some isolation can be good when managing the messiness.) The Tripp Trapp has a table tray that is sold separately if you want some sort of containment for spills and sticky fingers.
This is a fantastic baby chair for design-conscious parents who want to sit and dine at eye-level with their little one. The price tag is on the higher end, especially when adding accessories, but the chair will outlast his childhood (hard to believe right now. Can he be a baby forever?)
