Guest Picks: Toddler-Friendly Furniture

Now that my daughter is officially a walking, climbing, getting-into-everything toddler, I have a much better sense of what furniture doesn’t operate and what furniture will make life simpler. Listed below are a couple of furnishing ideas worth considering for the little ones in your life. — Jen from The Haystack Needle

West Elm

Essex Printed Ottoman, Kenmare/Iron – $399

Like every mama, I would like to limit the bumps and bruises that come with the toddler phase. But I like the idea of using furniture that naturally works better for early walkers, rather than covering furniture in bulge guards. A large ottoman that can be utilized as a coffee table is in my wish list. This way there are no sharp corners, but you do not need to sacrifice style.


Stokke Tripp Trapp Highchair | – $229.99

You can now find a few options for highchairs that transition to toddler seats, such as the pioneer Stokke chair. I have an alternative high chair for my daughter, however, that I wish I had the Stokke because it’s far easier to keep clean — and the different colour options are pretty rad too.

The Land of Nod

Iron Rich Play Chair, Red – $119

It’s correct that toddlers wish to copy everything you do. I’m sure that crosses into style too. This pint-size metallic chair is just as cool as the grown-up version.

Serena & Lily

Campaign Storage Bench – $375

Small kiddos really love to be good helpers and help put things off. This storage bench would be ideal in an entryway or playroom — tots get a kick out of knowing where things go.

Urban Outfitters

Henry Media Console – $199

This midcentury modern–style entertainment unit has rounded corners for wobbly walkers.

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams

Dexter Leather Collection Sofa, No Buttons

I’m so grateful I have a leather sofa a couple of years ago because it’s really easy to keep clean through all of the baby stages: from newborn spit-up to toddler messes.

Hable Construction

Cuffed Clem Beads Lightweight Canvas Storage Bushel – $175

This canvas-wire bushel made by Hable Construction feels more substantial than a standard storage container. And it’s a fashionable place to stash toys from the living room for the night.

The Land of Nod

Faux-Leather Chairs Come Standard, Aqua – $79

The pouf has turned into a favorite ottoman that operates with many different styles. This pouf is really made of faux leather, so it’s easy to keep clean in a toddler’s space.

Restoration Hardware Baby & Child

Wilkes Trunk Bed, 2 Drawer – $999

I’m beginning to consider toddler beds, and that I love the idea of storage under the bed. I’d probably use the extra space for clothing that don’t match or are out of now.


Vitra Panton Junior Chair – $140

These contemporary chairs for developing tots come in ice cream shop colours. They are such cute chairs that are just the ideal size for toddlers.


P’kolino Safari Wall Hooks – $34.99

This contemporary wall rack of animal hooks would look cute in an entryway or playroom. Hang it at a very low height and your kiddos can hang up their own hats and feel just like big kids while doing this!


Campfire Paper Table – $549

Give your child a room that is safe to draw on. And doesn’t it always feel more fun once you are drawing a table?


Trofast Storage Combination With Boxes – $191.97

Here’s a simple, contemporary solution for several of the toys (and stuff) you require to your kiddos as soon as they’re mobile. Ikea sells a number of sizes and colours with this particular system of storage bins.

Oeuf Classic Toy Storage, Natural – $498

This mod shelving unit using its compartments and pragmatic design reminds me of shopping at a boutique. I’d love to organize my kid’s loose toys ( all those blocks) at a shelving solution similar to this.



Spot on Square Hiya Rocker – 2 Colors – $175

This contemporary, kid-size rocker is going to be a seat they will love climbing into. And the bright orange adds an enjoyable burst of colour to your property.


BBO2 Table – $420

Playdates will be more fun when your toddler has a drama table so that friends can sit collectively and draw.


Little Partners Learning Tower, Natural – $199.99

I’m getting this learning tower for my daughter so that she can hang out from the kitchen and observe me prep meals without getting in to everything. I’m amazed at how little kiddos only love to see how grown-ups do all of the basic patterns, such as cooking.


Vintage Style Two Step Stool – $59.95

A step stool is a must-have for toddlers to make it to the sink to wash hands and brush teeth. This vintage-style stool comes in different colour options.
