After seeing the Mamas and Papas Luna highchair in a magazine a while back, I popped into their store to check one out in the flesh, after all, it is making a play for the high end, modernist end of the highchair market with its Â£195 pricetag.
They’re actually originally designed by Dutch company Nuna and are aiming for a long life, taking your child from 6 months through to 12 years, moving through high chair, toddler chair, and then junior chair.
Going for a bit of a funky, retro vibe with a bright seat against a white and grey frame, when you see it in the flesh, you’ll notice that it’s heavily plastic, reminding me a little of the textured chairs that I got at school in the 80s, albeit more aesthetically pleasing on the eye.
A gliding mechanism adjusts the height of the chair and it’s got a 3-point harness, removable tray and footrest, plus a padded cushion which acts as a booster cushion for babies.
Like any highchair in this price range, it’ll come down to personal taste and as a piece of furniture with the potential to stick around for almost 12 years, for me I’d be unsure about the hardcore plastic…but that’s just me.
Available in bright orange, army green and lime, or blue from Mamas & Papas
