Just because you have kids doesn't necessarily mean your home has to be overrun with garish plastic accessories. The Little Armchair Company has come to the rescue of design-conscious parents with its classic mini seats, which are safe, comfortable and cool. Made with sturdy wooden bases for stability and fire-resistant foam, the armchairs are upholstered in machine-washable covers in a range of colours and patterns. Trendy tots might like the fake-fur models in zebra- (below left) and leopard-skin prints while style-savvy kids who want to co-ordinate with their parents' decor can choose one of the more neutral fabrics in the company's range (below right) or have an armchair tailor-made and covered in the same material as mum and dad's sofa. The armchairs cost from $850 to $950 (depending on the fabric), come with removable 'sleevelettes' to protect the chairs' arms and are suitable for babies to five-year-olds.
