our newest piece of furniture: the anka highchair

Like choosing a crib, picking out a highchair was a big decision. We considered skipping it entirely and just doing some kind of booster seat thing, until I started looking around and my design-lust kicked in. After much debate, we opted for the brand new Anka chair from Svan of Sweden. I knew we wanted a wooden chair, rather than a big ol’ plastic one. First, we looked at the original Svan — but I didn’t love the round base. Then we oggled the Tripp Trapp but we wanted something with a tray (at least right now). Then, lo and behold, Svan introduced the Anka, which fit all of our needs. It’s wooden but comes with an easy-to-wash tray and cushion. It’s compact and can fold when not in use. And, it’s more affordable than other options ($180). I’ll let you know how it works as Isadora grows, but as you can see from the photo above, it’s already a big hit!

P.S. In case you’re wondering, that’s a palette of sweet potato and avocado on the bib.

*squee*! Oh, Isadora, how we’ve missed seeing you! (The chair is cute too.)

TOO adorable!! Isadora is beyond words!!


It’s looks great and your daughter is adorable!

Trust me, virtually the only thing a baby is looking for in a high chair is room to spread out and make a great big old mess. ; )

Does she drop food over the side to signal when she’s done eating?


What an adorable baby! And what a nice high chair…hmmm…I’m going to have to keep that in mind for when our baby is read for a high chair. Although I have to say I’m tempted by the ones that have removable plastic trays that can go straight in the dishwasher. You’re right, a high chair is a big decision. How’s the Walmart crib working out for you? We ended up with a Nurseryworks Loom crib–it hasn’t been delivered yet, but then neither has the baby. ;)


Looks very fashionable and functionable. Isadora seems like she likes it!
