In our old apartment we mostly ate around a small parsons table (or the couch if I’m being totally honest). We lived in such tight quarters that a formal dining room was not an option. I really missed serving dinner and sitting around the table as a family – talking, laughing, and sharing stories about our day. When we moved one of the things I was most excited for was our new dining room (still a decorating work in progress ;). I had seen the Stokke Tripp Trapp in the homes of many of our friends but never knew what the fuss about. Until now. I seriously don’t know how we lived without this incredible highchair. When it first arrived I wasn’t sure how Lucas would like it as he has been using a more traditional highchair for so long. I kid you not he climbed right on with the biggest smile and proclaimed “it’s dinner time!”. There are so many things I love about the Tripp Trapp and I could go on and on but here are a few of my favorite features: The structure and height. It’s incredibly easy for Lucas to climb on and off and it gives him the feeling of independence which is so important at this age. He also loves to strap himself in and the harness is extremely comfortable and non-restricting. The footplate. Lucas’s legs are growing like weeds and the footplate makes a huge difference in his comfort (no more dangling limbs!). The gorgeous color. Storm Grey. It’s the perfect color and works in any home aesthetic. This shade launched just this week (!!) and is the newest color in the Tripp Trapp family. It grows with your child. The Tripp Trapp can be used from birth to adulthood. Ivan and I both tested it out and we definitely fit comfortably in the chair. A huge thank you to Stokke for sending Lucas the raddest highchair ever!
