To glide, or not to glide – that is the question… After designing close to 60 nurseries and children’s rooms, here’s our take on seating in a child’s room. Good chair = must-have for all nurseries, so here are our 2 primary tricks for picking the right chair.
First trick (the sappy one): What’s the purpose of this chair? To us, this is the probably the most important part of the entire nursery. Is this the place where you will bond with your baby while nursing? Is this where you hear their first words while reading a bedtime story? Perhaps this is where you will spend a couple extra moments every night just listening to their heart beat while rocking them to sleep…
Second trick (the practical one): what’s the long term plan for the chair? Is it going to always be in this one room, or could it go to your next baby’s room?
- This newcomer by Oilo Studio has hit the Glider world by storm. It’s sleek design and high quality leather means it can be used for years to come!
- The Luca Glider from Monte Design is a crowd favorite. It is super comfortable, easily cleaned and the perfect size for most people.
- Try the Cottage Glider by Little Castle for a more traditional look. These gliders are a mainstay in the industry and come in a huge array of fabrics and designs.
When combined, all of these factors will help you decide on the size, style, color and fabric of your chair. From there, it’s all about sitting down and trying it out. A little online research should help you narrow down your field of choices, and then it’s time to kick up your feet in someone’s store!
