Parents with a discerning eye for style often find it challenging to furnish their home with the typical products that come along with a new baby. It isn’t easy to find pieces that compliment a chic and modern aesthetic, especially when it comes to highchairs! There is no shortage of highchairs on the market that suits their purpose, but how many do you know of that deliver on style?
We were thrilled to hear about the Micuna OVO, a minimalist chair with a designer edge. Made of solid beechwood and PE plastic, this is a high chair that can even be considered a piece of art. The OVO (which means egg in Portuguese) is the height of sophisticated dining for tots. The beautiful chair combines all the elements we look for: comfort, safety and elegant design that blends seamlessly with any interior design. The OVO is made by Micuna, a brand with more than 40 years of experience providing European quality and modern baby furniture! Micuna has set trends within the children’s furniture market since the company’s beginning, with chic modern shapes and a unique Nordic touch, handmade in Spain.
It is clear that they brought this expertise to their OVO highchair! Perfect for babies 6 months to 3 years, the OVO offers a removable and washable round tray with raised sides to prevent spills. The footrest and leatherette straps are both chic and practical offering safety and a comfortable spot for little feet to rest. The solid beechwood frame and legs are adjustable, offering two different height options with a comfortable sculptured seat. You can creatively customize your chair to suit your space even better with their selection of 6 different coloured pads which add even more comfort and style!
We love that this chair continues to grow and evolve with your child, remaining useful for years to come. The bottom part of the legs is removable to make a comfortable chair perfect for the dining table or at a craft desk. The clever protective drum in which the highchair is packaged can also be re-used for toy-storage – a practical solution and a great way to reuse package waste!
The company prides itself on its environmentally conscious thinking and eco-friendly practices and combines traditional methods with new technology throughout the production process making it highly efficient. In keeping with the company’s ethos of respecting the planet and adopting a slower way of life, the OVO chair, (and all of their products) are made of sustainable materials like solid beech wood from sustainable forests. In fact, the OVO was recently earned the accolade of “Best Highchair” from 2020 Eco Excellence – recognizing its excellence as a social and environmentally sustainable product!
We send the lovely OVO chair to our friend, photographer Kristine Boel, to try out with her 7-month old daughter, Luna.
“This beautiful chair fits perfectly with our style in our home. I love the stylish little side table that works great for putting a few snacks but still have her close enough to our table. The seat insert makes her sit super comfy and the harness is a pleasure to buckle and unbuckle smoothly and in a jiff. Love that it’s all easy to wipe down…. because every meal is a pure disaster zone! It was easy to assemble and also super easy to switch out from the small side table to the larger tray table. Overall a lovely chair that works wonders for us. And I love seeing little Luna sitting upright enjoying exploring all the foods.”
