Contemporary + Classic
A cool, cognac chair nestles into a modern black desk, beneath a bright display of finger-paint projects and colorful doodles. We’re huge fans of this desk and chair duo for a kids’ room because the simple design and neutral colors are sure to look equally as stylish 10 years down the road, as they do right now.
Creating a kid-friendly workspace shouldn’t mean you must give up all sense of sophistication in your home. Behold: the power of a slipcovered chair for after school snacks and study sesh. With this thing, there’s no need to worry about your kiddo spilling chips and salsa on the living room rug. Simply snag a washable slipcover for one of your kitchen chairs and, voila! Problem solved.
