Kid’s Chair: Classy Lou Lou Ghost Armchair by Kartell

in Kids

Kid’s chairs are rarely classy items of furniture. They are made to be comfortable and above all safe to the child sitting on them. Any sharp edges or intricate designs where fingers could get stuck are generally avoided. In addition to this, parent’s are not generally willing to pay over the top prices for a chair or table that’s bound to soon get covered in various goos from apple sauce and porridge to the remnants of little Charlie’s nasal cavity.

The Kartell Lou Lou Ghost Armchair is the ‘baby’ version of the famed Louis Ghost Armchair by world renowned designer Philippe Starck. It’s been manufactured by the Italian furniture giant Kartell, who I have mentioned many times on this blog before due to their wonderfully successful reputation.

The intended aim of the Lou Lou Ghost child’s chair is to teach children to use small-sized chairs but with adult forms. Building on from it’s larger predecessor, the chair is a post-modern triumph of technical innovation and historical style having been based loosely on the famous classic Louis XV armchair.

The material lends itself to easy cleaning which is a vital necessity for a kid’s furniture piece. It can be used indoors or outdoors and makes a classy addition to most interior spaces. Above all, if your design conscious, you’ll have the knowledge that your child’s chair was designed by the great French designer Philippe Starck. Whilst your son or daughter might not appreciate that aspect, the parents of your friend’s children will. Regardless, it looks great.
