essentials guide: our top 9 baby-friendly coffee tables

welcome to our new blog series, for life ~ a place for you to retreat and take in lifestyle articles with helpful & inspiring ideas, guides and interviews, designed by us, for you.

we present to our essentials guide, edition 1, which is all about baby-friendly (& most importantly, beautiful!) coffee tables. this was born out of our lived experience in seeking the perfect new coffee table once our little ones became mobile. anyone who has gone through this stage knows that you start to look at furniture differently. here, we prove that it can be the start of something great.

is it possible that baby-friendly & beautiful can co-exist? we took to our favourite furniture designers to find that the answer to this is: yes. they come in all shapes, sizes, textures & colours, and we have made sure to include one for all budgets! read on to view our top picks for a rounded edge coffee table.

1. blob table, by gustav westman 

handmade of wood in sweden, finished in a semi-matte smooth lacquer. notice the rounded corners and grounded nature of this work of art. this table will not budge against the wildest of toddlers and they will love the rainbow palette you get to choose from. gustav westman is not afraid of color and we are here for it. if we could all just live in his world, life would feel jolly & surreal perpetually. exactly what this life calls for.

3. frannie, by crate & barrel 

we couldn't choose between the next two rattan tables so we are leaving it to you!

we love how frannie (below) brings retro, art deco vibes while offering additional (& highly practical) storage.

4. paloma, by sarah ellison

paloma's beigy rattan and chunky proportions are sending our imaginations to a heavenly place. we think the clean placement of the rattan, and the brass details elevate this otherwise casual material.
