Petite + Chic

One of my readers recently emailed me the following question:

Help! I need a great kiddie table and chairs.  
Something that the kids can eat at, 
but that looks great and can be in a room in the
house other than the playroom! 
What do you suggest?
Having just recently discovered these 
adorable pint sized reproductions
of mid-century design classics over at little nest,
I thought I would share my suggestions here.
Right now I am really loving these “little Bert” chairs.
A replica of the 1952 Henry Bertoia chair,
I think these colorful and fun chairs
would work with a variety of decor styles.

When paired with this classic and chic Cygnet table,
(a mini reproduction of the a222 table by Arne Jacobsen),
 the look is just perfect!

Have a style question?

  1. Fab post! This is perfect because I'm looking to redo my son's room completely. I like the white armchair (I'd like the proper-sized ones for our lounge…); my son would probably like the white-blue round one! Thanks so much! (to the reader also, for asking such a great question)

    Those Little Bert chairs are absolutely lovely, and streets ahead of most children's furniture.

  13. I think all of these are tres chic and would either blend in with a modern decor or compliment a classic one ~ you couldn't really go wrong with any of them! The choices today for little ones really astound me! xx Suzanne

  14. I love the little Bert chairs =) That with the table would be perfect for what she is looking for!

    I was at Target the other day and there was a "little boys" chair that looked like a formal chair you would sit by a fire and smoke your cigar in …. Bahha, for little boys? No! I totally could fit in it. Now how to get it from IN to WA…

  60. I've loved all those mini-versions from the minute I first saw them – everthing in "mini" is just too cute! I think the bert chairs are on my list for my daughter's table & chair set…I wonder if they'd be a pain to keep clean with food getting stuck on all of the edges?!
