Great Ideas! 4 Hot New High Chairs You Have to See

05/24/2013 at 10:00 AM ET

Meet the newest breed of high chairs: they’re functional, sleek, and totally stunning to look at — even with oatmeal running down their legs. They’re so beautiful, it’s really a shame they’ll get covered in mushy peas.

They’re also super practical. The Summer Infant Bentwood chair perfectly tucks into your closet when you have a dinner party. And the Zaaz chair by Nuna has so many seating options that it might actually be a Transformer — the friendly kind, of course.

Dying to find out more? Here’s the scoop on our fave four:

OXO TOT SPROUT A tray that can hold up to 7 ounces of liquid? That’s not just a high chair ($250), it’s a good friend! The easy one-handed tray adjustment feature also means you’ll be BFFs for life — or at least until your kid is 60 lbs and can no longer fit into it.

BENTWOOD HIGH CHAIR A striking wood finish makes this affordable baby chair ($170) a nice accent for any dining area. But the fact that it folds up for easy storage makes it a must for families who cherish their space.

PHIL & TEDS POPPY They’ve taken design cues from the Jetsons to create this space age chair ($120) that grows with your baby, from infancy to age 4. The extra long feeding tray (which is dishwasher safe!) catches those gravity-defying spills that usually land in their lap.

ZAAZ BY NUNA It’s a little intimidating at first, but once you learn all the nifty ways this Dutch-designed chair ($250) can change to adapt to your kid’s needs, you’ll never look back. Move it up, down, pop off the tray, give your passenger a footrest — if adult chairs were this customizable we’d never leave the table.

Hea on

Did they match the chairs to those gorgeous kids’ skin tones or something? Looks kinda silly.

$250 for a high chair? Am I the only person who finds that ridiculous?
