The best seat in the house

August 18, 2007 at 4:14 am 1 comment

I love our Svan chairs! Plain and simple. After the Bean outgrew her high chair, we needed to find a seat that she could comfortably sit in at our dinner table. I wasn’t happy with the plastic booster seats — they would topple and were ultimately uncomfortable. The Bean would have been happier eating off the floor. Thankfully, after some research, I found the Svan chair and the rest is history. The Bean has had her Svan for the last 3 years and continues to grow with it. The story doesn’t end here because we bought a second one for our infant, whom I’ll nickname the Mini for now. The minute Mini was tall enough to peek over the tray, we popped her in.

The fantastic thing about the Svan is it’s compact size. We’ve got a narrow kitchen and I can tuck the Svan in a corner without the fridge door bumping into it. I only mention this because our big Graco high chair was like an elephant in the corner. It was a daily battle between the fridge and the high chair.


Let me make this easy and list out the Svan’s pros and cons:

– The seat and footrest are easily adjustable using the supplied Allen key
– Very space conscious design
– The design blends well with modern or traditional decor
– Several different wood stains to choose from
– Several different colored seat cushions to choose from
– The seat cushions are machine washable!
– The baby tray can be purchased as an extra option
– Plastic tray cover that easily snaps on and off for washing
– Lightweight and easy to drag around

– No wheels, so dragging could scratch floor (I added felt pads to mine)
– A little pricier than most high chairs but, think about it, you will use it for years. My 5.5 year old is still using hers
– I’m out of cons. It’s a great chair!

    My first grandson has this chair and now it is being used by his baby sister. It really is excellent quality and looks great in my daughter’s modern decor. It cleans up easily and looks so much nicer than the usually plastic high chairs. The padded seat cushions can be thrown in the washer, too.

    “Bubba” recently knocked it over when “Sissy” was in it. He is strong for a 2 1/2 year old! (“Sissy” was not hurt – just a slight black eye…)

    I would say it is VERY stable except in the presence of pint-sized green-eyed monsters.
