I hate walking on main streets. Mostly because at any given time I am in a city and the main street is awash with tourists who slow me down from getting where I got’s to go. (Yeah, I said it). But the other day, I found myself scurrying down Oxford St in the pouring rain. My thoughts were fixed on getting to where I needed to be and then I saw this..The Bloom loft. What the what? I totally backed up (against foot traffic no less).
The Bloom loft is a baby chair that is not only functional as a 3-in-1 piece of furniture – resting, feeding and play chair but it’s so ‘stylin’ I almost blurted out ‘Are we living in the time of the Jetsons??’
I can honestly say I’ve never seen a baby chair quite like this. It’s cocoon like shape comes in a high gloss white or black while the fabric interior is available in a wealth of shades, including metallics! But is it just a pretty piece or is it also functional?
It’s called the Fresco Loft as it has the ability to be elevated to counter height or high enough for a standing adult to comfortably feed the child, no bending over a piddly little baby tray! The cocoon shape works well to hold a newborn, but is big enough to seat a child weighing up to 79lbs – so you have some longevity out of it.
I can see this piece fitting into a mod home with no problems, at first I wondered if you could add it to a house with just any old aesthetic. Traditionalists might initially balk, bohemians might recoil from the lack of whimsy, but on second look the structural form is like a piece of art, not just a functional piece of furniture. It’s like having a scuplture in your space…which brings me on to price..the one I saw was priced at 320GBP..not the price of your average baby high chair, but then again, this isn’t your typical baby chair.
