When you have a baby, a high chair or booster seat becomes a very visible part of your dining area, and a well-designed one can make all the difference. Safety and functionality are top priorities, but you don't have to sacrifice aesthetics for a good high chair. Here are a few of our current favorites.

High Chairs

We discovered Toronto-based Monte Design when store owners Ralph and Michelle offered Apartment Therapy a glimpse inside their home, which is full of modern design for kids. The Tavo High Chair, $299, comes with a cushioned leather seat.

Designed by Montreal-based Age Design (aka husband-and-wife duo Patrice Guillemin and Genevieve Grenier), this $300 chair transitions from a high chair into a chair for an older child. It covers ages six months to six years.

Based in New York, Zac and Zoe focuses on modern kids' furniture and sustainable products. The Anka High Chair ($180) is made from a wood frame with a phthalate and bisphenol-A free tray and PBDE-free cushion.

This online store specializes in safe products for children. The $25 My Little Seat Portable High Chair is designed to be used when you don't have a regular high chair on hand. It straps to a standard chair back and keeps a baby sitting up straight for mealtime.

For a cheap, simple high chair, check IKEA. Their Antilop High Chair is just $25 and made Ohdeedoh's list of Top Ten High Chairs.

Booster Seats

Overstock's kids' section is pretty comprehensive, and they have a lot of high chairs and boosters for reasonable prices. This plastic Keekaroo Cafe Booster is $60 and comes in 5 colors.

Like Overstock, Amazon also keeps a large rotating inventory of baby furniture. We like the Prince Lionheart BoosterPOD, a modern seat with safety straps for about $40.
