It's always a delight to watch your little ones playing or creating while sat up at the table. Whether they're colouring, painting, crafting or eating, activities are far more enjoyable when they're sat on a table that's comfortable: cue the adorable, bite-sized tables and chairs designed especially for kids.
Thankfully, children's tables and chairs are no longer the garish, cheap-looking plastic pieces you might remember from your childhood. The more contemporary kids' table and chair sets are designed with practicality and style in mind: from traditional spindle designs to minimalist and Scandi-inspired options.
When shopping for a table and chair set for your little one, consider function as well as form. Many tables and chairs have extra features, such as chalkboard activity tables and benches with storage, which make them useful for adults as well as children. To help you out, we've included some options below that are as functional as they are stylish.
While most children's tables and chairs are recommended for children over the age of six, it's always best to double check the safety instructions for product specific recommendations. Naturally, you should always supervise your child when they are using the furniture.
Here, we've outlined the best kids' tables and chairs for all styles and budgets.
Packed with features is this stylish activity table from La Redoute. It has a reversible top (with one activity side and one plain white side), as well as integrated storage space and adjustable height feet for safety. Note that with this one, you do have to purchase the chairs separately.
Admittedly, this is a desk and chair set rather than a table and chair set, but with how cute it is, we just had to include it. Made from natural rattan and painted in a welcoming sage green, it would take pride of place in a gender neutral nursery.
How adorable is this table and chair set from John Lewis? With a sweet white bear design on the backrest and contrasting pine legs, it's guaranteed to be a hit with children and adults alike.
If you're looking for something with a bit more colour, this mint green number from La Redoute might just whet your appetite. It comes with two benches – perfect for play dates with friends.
On the other hand, this pine table and chairs set from Habitat would make a great addition to nurseries and kids' bedrooms with a pared-back scheme. We love the addition of rounded edges, making it both stylish and child-friendly.
With its timeless spindle design, this John Lewis set is the perfect addition to period homes with a contemporary twist.
We're big fans of this characterful set from Habitat, complete with a sweet cut-out heart design. Functional as well as charming, it has a pull-out drawer for storing pencils, paints and paper. All for £70, too.
Mint and ivory make for a delectable pairing – as proven by this table and chair set from Amazon. If you love to coordinate as much as we do, opt for the matching step stool and toy organiser.
Ideal for households with multiple children, this table and chair set from Wayfair comes with an activity table, two chairs and a bench. The best part? The seat of the bench opens to provide a space-saving storage compartment.
