The post yesterday about designer high chairs in restaurants got us thinking. Good design means the union of form and function, with neither one having to compromise too much for the other. We think the standard commercial high chair you see in many restaurants is a great example of good, modern design.

It's anything but fancy, but it does sport clean lines, is sturdy, practical, easy to clean, and comes in a variety of finishes. You could even paint it yourself to suit your needs. Best of all, unlike many design-y things, it's affordable at about $40. Anyone own one of these?
