Our Story

Our firstborn hated every highchair he ever met, until the day he sat in the IKEA Antilop. We were eating in their cafeteria and we couldn’t believe he didn’t scream bloody murder when we put him in. We bought both the chair and the support cushion that day and I don’t think we’ve ever been so happy with a baby product purchase. The design is clean and modern. It’s lightweight and easy to move or take apart. And it works for a range of ages – fitting both our 2 year old and our 4 month old (with the cushion). Best of all, it’s a fraction of the cost compared to other fashion-forward options. As much as we love the IKEA highchair, there are a few flaws. First, we just could not get that tray off! Clean up was annoying since we couldn’t just dump the whole mess in the sink. Secondly, the seat was too big and deep for our little baby to sit properly. We bought the support cushion from IKEA, but I really wanted something that would match our decor since we keep the highchair out all the time. Finally, there was no footrest so our baby would quickly get uncomfortable and lose interest in eating. With these drawbacks in mind, we created our etsy shop in 2016. We made dishwasher safe, FDA food-grade silicone placemats that fit exactly on the tray. We created a line of designer fabric covers for the support cushion. And in 2019, we launched sturdy bamboo footrests that adjust as your baby grows. We imagined we'd reach a tiny percentage of IKEA highchair owners. It never occurred to us that someday people would buy the IKEA highchair just to get our accessories! My husband and I are giddy with excitement about this shop. We hope you love our products as much as we do!
