Best Highchairs 2012

Apartment Therapy's Annual Guide

High chairs have been an essential part of children's meal time for as long as kids have been around. While they once looked like adult chairs with a tray attached, today's high chairs are as diverse as the kids who squirm around in them. We looked around at what's available today and, along with the opinions of our readers, rounded up the 10 best high chairs available.

WHAT THE READERS SAY

"Love, love, love our Antilop! Can't say enough good things about this wonderfully simple chair. I've had four kids, been through several high chairs (even owned a modern wooden one) and this chair is by far leaps and bounds ahead of the others. It's not fancy BUT it's not obnoxious and is oh-so-simple to keep clean and maintain. It seriously looks as good as new with just a wipe down here and there. Did I say I LOVE this chair?" - djungst

"Yay Antilop! We love ours, packs up small for trips, easy to clean and CHEAP!" - KkatMpls
"i splurged for the boon and I love it! It is kinda heavy on the bottom, but it looks cool. I think that it is very very safe for any size baby. I will be using this chair 3 times a day for at least 2 (times number of kids) years, so I wanted to get one that I enjoyed seeing! Also, it serves as a great walker toy for the baby :)" - benayse
"We have the Boon chair, and LOVE IT! Adjustable height, easy to clean and great customer service (we broke a clip, and they had me take a picture, and shipped out all new straps in a hurry)." - res325
