shopping guide: kids furniture table and chair set toddler
leave a comment
In my son’s toddler room, he had a bed, a bookcase and a play table with chairs. While I bemoaned the constant pile of crafts and activities that cluttered the table top, for him, the play table was his home base. Half-built Lego sets and nearly finished comic strips waited patiently for him, undisturbed by tidying in other parts of the house.
When I put together my nursery inspiration boards, I don’t usually have the room to add a play table and chairs. While this is fine for a baby’s nursery, once that baby becomes a toddler, the table and chair set might become more of a priority. It’s easy to update a nursery for the toddler years, and today we’re going to fit a little play space into some of our favorite nurseries.
The Sprout Modern Kids Table and Chairs are easy to assemble in just a couple minutes with tension lock tool-less technology. The table-top is spacious and both table and chairs can hold up to 150 pounds. They are made in the USA from recycled pre-consumer fiber and come in several fun modern colors which make them perfect options to customize your growing toddler’s space!
Thanks to Sprout for sponsoring this post and giving me the opportunity to revisit some older designs and show them updated for the toddler years. It’s amazing how quickly your little ones grow up, but the Modern Kids Table and Chairs will last you until their pre-tweens.
P’kolino’s Little Reader was already one of my favorite chairs for toddlers and preschoolers, but now they’re even more attractive with these patterned chair covers. The new patterns include Pink Leaves, Blue Planes, Grey, Pink and Blue Chevron, and Orange, Pink and Blue Stripes.
You can purchase the chair with cover for $70 or you can purchase a cover for the chair you already own for $25.

In the drool-worthy category at the ABC Kids Expo 2014 is the Rockwell Bassinet featuring a walnut base and sleek chrome frame.
A variation on the Ninna Nanna Bassinet, the Rockwell Bassinet is an even more spectacularly modern design.
In the glider section, two limited edition gliders make up the Wool and Walnut collection. Here’s a sleek Vola Glider in the wool and walnut combination.
This Luca Glider is shown in Oatmeal Wool with a solid walnut base.
The Joya Rocker looks amazing with a new sand fabric and natural maple base.
While most of the time, simpler is better, The Land of Nod has really hit the right note with these fun kids chairs. Designed by Michelle Romo, the Executive Pet Nod Chairs are some of the cutest cartoony little things. Furniture like this don’t usually get the BMB seal of approval, but here they are in all their adorable perfection, ready for your little ones to fall in love with their special reading spot.
The chairs retail for $130, or you can buy a new cover for your existing Nod Chair for $80.

January is always full of exciting new product releases from so many of my favorite companies, but I always look forward to seeing (and shopping) the new offerings from The Land of Nod. There’s LOTS of cool new stuff, but here are some of my favorites…
The Ellipse furniture collection includes a mid-century inspired bed, nightstand and dresser. It’s a great option for big kids.
Finally, the perfect book storage with easy access for the littlest readers, the Open Book Bin comes in Grey, Walnut and Espresso.
A new take on the faux taxidermy trend, the giraffe, zebra and elephant heads are funkier than most.
These colorful pendant shades will add a serious pop of color wherever you use them. The pendants and cords are sold separately so you can mix and match those.
The cure for boring storage bins, the Landscape Floor Bins are as colorful as anything you’ll store inside them.
There are several new crib bedding options and you should always browse The Land of Nod when you’re looking for crib bedding. Check out Field Guide, Beaucoup de Fraises and Elephants in the Room in particular.
I had started wondering when we’d be seeing this little chair from Bloom. I spotted it LAST year at ABC Kids Expo, and since they weren’t at the show this year, I didn’t know what the story was until now.
Here it is… Bloom’s Pogo 3-in-1 bentwood step-stool, booster and child’s chair.
You can pre-order it now.
shopping guide: easel kids furniture play table toy box trucks
I’m delinquent blogging about Tambino, but a couple of their newest products ensured that I could no longer keep this brand to myself.
As soon as I spotted their amazing new Typographic Easel, I had to let you take a look. The easel is shown here with the Typographic “H” Chair and the Typographic “K” chair. Oh, the letter A as an easel. How perfect.
Then there’s this brand new little beauty. The Pickup (Your Toys) Truck is part toy chest and part kid’s desk. Fun and function all in one. Make room in your playrooms. I adore it!
These number tables are unlike any others. They’re the ones I’ve been long overdue showing you. Pick an oversized 2, 3, 5 or 6 table. There’s also an 8 Activity Table (not shown). They all have numbers for legs as well. How cool would it be if your preschool used tables like these?!
You can also enjoy the numbers in a smaller stepstool form. The 2 and 4 Stepstools are available in a variety of colors.
Tambino has also been getting some attention for their use of the number 5 as a Toddler Table Stand!
At this point, can you imagine how excited Count Von Count is getting?
And if you want to go really batty with Tambino, check out their modular cushion sets like this starfish.
I’ve shown you MUCH of what Tambino offers, but to see it all, I invite you to visit their site and take a look at the rest. If you’re ready to buy, feel free to use my affiliate link and visit their Amazon Shop.
Some companies make beautiful furniture for kids. Some make their beautiful furniture smaller for kids. Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams (one of my favorites for grown-up furniture) have a collection of mini chairs sized just for kids. This is for when you really want the kids’ furniture to blend in with the decor.
Clockwise from the left we have the Luc Kids Chair ($595), Lil’ Alexa Kids Chair ($575), and Mini Sadie ($445). The chairs in the photo can be ordered online as shown. You can also special order the chairs to your own specifications or in leather through a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams retailer.
