Scandinavian Child

Stylish and Modern Children’s Furniture by Svan

Scandinavian Child is a leading manufacturer and distributor of innovative, stylish and functional children’s products.  Based in Raleigh, North Carolina and founded in 2002, the company is focused on providing high quality children’s products.  Scandinavian Child (SCI) acquired Svan AB, a Sweden-based designer and manufacturer of bentwood children’s furniture in 2011.  Sharing some background of Svan of Sweden, they began in 1996 with the Svan High Chair (now called the Signet), designed by two dads, Kjell Hagström and Anders Fallman. The bentwood high chair was praised for its sturdy, stylish, and adjustable design, and quickly gained international popularity.  The collection expanded to include other products such as toddler tables and ride-on toys.   Parents can rest assure knowing that all SCI products meet the company’s criteria of innovative design, usefulness and safety as they are built on the company’s philosophy “Childhood Without Compromise.”  

What is their philosophy when it comes to life with children?  “Parents should never have to compromise. From the newborn stage to inquisitive toddler stage – parents should enjoy products that are stylish, functional, and safe,” SCI says.  This is why Svan’s smart, contemporary designs make caring for children easier, and allow parents to focus on the important things like precious family time.

Scandinavian ChildOne of our Editor’s Pick is the Play With Me Toddler Table and Chairs (retail $199.95), made with high-quality solid birch wood and available in natural, cherry or espresso wood.  These three finishes are all lead-free.  Taking child seating to a whole new level, Svan’s lovely Play with Me Toddler Table and Chairs set is both practical and attractive.  This table and chairs set is ideal for both parents and children as it encourages mom or dad to join in on the fun with a stool sturdy enough to hold a parent at the table.  This set comes with a table, three toddler chairs and a sturdy stool for adult participation. We love this table and chairs set because it does not look like your typical run of the mill children’s furniture set, made with ostentatious colors or wide bulky plastic.  This table set will bring hours of fun to your kids while also allowing for parents to work with little ones at their level.  Not to mention, this makes children feel comfortable in furniture their size.  The curved backrests on the three chairs support ergonomic seating and they are also stackable for easy storage.

Scandinavian ChildThe simplistic yet clean line of the set’s modern Scandinavian design complements any décor, making it the perfect addition to any living room, bedroom, kitchen, playroom or nursery.  We cannot express enough the quality of this table and chairs set because it is built to stand up to year-after-year of art projects, tea parties, games and other children’s activities.  The table dimensions are 25” x 25" x 20” and is a good size for both play and work.  The Play With Me Toddler Table and Chairs arrives unassembled, so adult assembly is required but is extremely easy to put together with step-by-step picture instructions.  Manufactured using inset nuts, it improves stability and ease of assembly.  To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth and dry completely.  This product comes with a two year warranty so you know it is meant to last. Makes for a great gift for growing families!

Scandinavian ChildAnother product we cannot stop raving about is the Lyft Booster Seat (retail $79.95), a versatile seat for children who have outgrown their high chairs but cannot yet safely and comfortably sit in an adult chair.  The Lyft is ergonomically designed for toddlers 18 months to five years, to support the backs of small children while its seat angle ensures that children are always safely and comfortably seated.  The great thing about this booster seat is that it is completely portable, so that it can be used in the comfort of your own home or out dining at a restaurant or friend’s house.  The Lyft is very lightweight and folds compactly for storage and travel.  It comes with a carry bag that the Lyft slides easily into so this booster seat is easy to grab and go anywhere.  Combining Beachwood with metal finishes, this mixes traditional and modern design, making it a perfect fit for any home to blend right in with everyday life.  The surface is smoothly polished and easy to clean so even the toughest food and drink spills can be removed effortlessly. 

The Lyft gives toddlers the boost they need to reach the family table at mealtime.  The sleek and modern booster seat is fully adjustable with a simple twist and press of the safety notch buttons, its telescopic rods can be lengthened to fit the backrest of most adult kitchen or dining chairs while its legs adjust to allow for a comfortable seat Scandinavian Childheight for your younger.  Safety is always an important aspect of all SCI products and the Lyft comes with two fastening straps and has anti-slip feet to prevent the booster from tipping or sliding off the chair it is fixed to.  The seat also has stay-down safely locks to keep the seat in place as well as a three-point harness to keep little wiggly ones safely seated during meals.  Even the little details have been taken into consideration as the rounded corners and edges and countersunk screws add to the safety of this seat.  The Lyft is available in four lead-free finish colors; espresso, mahogany, red and natural.
