Pint Sized

Since I've been decorating a playroom for my children, I have been noticing children's decor more than ever.  And there is nothing cuter than a petite, children's version of a classic chair.  Of course most children don't care whether it's from Ikea or Design Within Reach, and I don't think I could ever justify making a huge investment in children's furniture.  But's always fun to dream!

A pint-sized orange Panton chair adds a pop of color to this modern nursery.

The Panton junior chair comes in every color of the rainbow!

Blogger Peppermint Bliss's little girl can kick up her heels in her mini Eames lounger.

Also available in wee-sized proportions and a myriad of colors is the iconic Kartell ghost chair.



 
Colorful bentwood chairs on sleek chrome bases are perfect for everything from tea parties to finger painting.

A replica of Arne Jacobsen's egg chair makes a cozy place to curl up with a picture book.

The more affordable (but not cheap) Ikea version is cute, too.

Baby bertoia chairs remind me of my local public library when I was a child.  That's right- the children's section of the Gaston County Public Library was full of Bertoia, Eames, and Baughman.  Too bad they redecorated before I knew enough to appreciate it!
But to bring back those childhood memories, there *may* be some Little Berts headed my way...

What a great post! Decisions, decisions! I just love every kind of kids' chair. That Eames rocker with ottoman is awesome!

I adore kid's chairs to begin with but I have been dreaming of of an egg chair for a long time. There is something about an already marvelous chair in a petite size that is irresistable.

I would totally go to a tea party in one of those rooms! All I know is my playroom was never this cool. Lucky kiddos!
