Grace Table

Every kid needs a solid utilitarian table to draw, play and snack on. Designer Jennifer Delonge, the same creator of the Ava chair, has come up with the Grace Table made of formaldehyde free wood and low VOC paint (I love that!). The stools can be tucked under the table to maximize your space and you can mix & match the Grace Stools for a complete set (color swatches below).

The best seat in the house

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!
