Our Verdict

The Keter Smart Seat is a great example of an affordable modern high chair. For under £50 this seat can be used as a high chair, booster chair and toddler chair. The chair itself is modern looking white with a splash of bright green. There is no padding and smooth edges making it a lot easier to clean. It also comes with a removable tray and seat liner which makes it very easy to clean.

The chair doesn’t fold, but it has a handy storage space at the bottom to store the legs for travelling. The chair will see you through for the start of weaning until your child is around 4-5 years old. It looks really modern and a lot more expensive than the price tag. The chair is very sturdy and comfortable for baby too. The 5 point harness makes sure baby is safely strapped in.

Pros: Convertible, easy clean, lightweight, sturdy
Cons: expensive, non-folding

Our Verdict

The Knuma connect is a versatile and modern looking wooden highchair that is suitable to use from 6months to 6 years old. It’s a little pricey, however it can be used as a highchair, booster chair, toddler chair and table. The beech wood finish makes it very easy to match most décor.

The Knuma connect scores highly for safety with its durable and very sturdy legs. It also comes with a 5 point harness which can be removed as your little one grows. This chair isn’t foldable, so we wouldn’t recommend it for travel. The footprint is small and is a great option for a house with little space as it looks stylish enough to leave set up at the dining table.

3. Cosatto 3 Sixti Highchair

Pros: compact, pedestal design, 6 colourful patterns, padded, recline
Cons: heavy

Our Verdict

The Cosatto 3 Sixti is an innovative pedestal high chair. We love that it looks like a funky little bar stool for your baby. Available in 6 funky designs which are bright and baby friendly without being naff. The chair is extremely well designed for your baby’s comfort with padding and recline feature.

The design is such a space saver as it’s so compact. The chair itself can be rotated 360 degrees and height adjustable by a foot operated button, so you can use it with any table height. The base has wheels so it can be manoeuvre from room to room. The only drawback was the base needs to be heavy for stability and this makes it slightly awkward to move.

Cons: small tray, no handle

Our Verdict

The BabyBjorn is out best space saving modern high chair. This chair is very compact and very narrow when folded. It’s also really easy to clean due to its smooth, curved edges and no straps. That’s right no straps for baby to mash food into! Baby is help in through a safety lock on the tray which can be adjusted for more room as baby grows.

The chair is really lightweight but sturdy at the same time. We were disappointed it doesn’t have a handle to make it a little easier to carry. Although it’s unpadded it’s still comfortable for your baby as the curved back and footrest enable your baby to sit upright in the highchair.
