Not all of us looking for kid-sized table and chairs are looking for our playrooms. Because, um, ain’t got no playroom. Instead what we’re hoping for is something we can put in the living room that doesn’t look like a polycarbonate plastic rainbow puked all over the place.

Enter Bloom’s Otto table and chairs.

The ergonomically bent "stylewood" in dark or natural stain matches nearly any modern decor. But because beauty is only plywood deep, the set is functional too, with a crafts tray that slides out from under the table top. I may be giving up precious living room space, but perhaps I’m making up for it in not having crayons under the sofa all the time.

Eh, a mom can dream. $450 at Modern Tots.Liz
