I find that a muted pink goes with almost anything. It creates a serene contrast, especially when combined with bolder colours. Muted pink looks good with blue or yellow and also next to red. It can be used together with other muted colours such as beige or cream hues, but also – as in our case – with bolder colours.
First and foremost, of course, it should be comfortable and support proper posture. But it should also be lightweight, so that a kid can move it around easily. I also prefer models without armrests. They make it easy to stand up and they are more flexible when it comes to how you sit on them because they don’t necessarily have to be in exactly the right position when you sit down.
In our house, the chair is at my son’s desk and gets used every single day. We use it for colouring and doing crafts. Sometimes it also gets used for making a fort. I think it’s a lovely piece of furniture to have in a child’s room and it can also be pushed under the desk to save space.
In terms of colour: white with small colourful accents. I love spaces that are bright and calm, but they should also have a cosy warmth about them. I prefer to work with colourful elements that can be swapped around. In the kitchen we have an S 43 in mustard yellow and a 330 in mint green.
I would love to have a 209 in lemon yellow. Or lilac would also be lovely ...
