A Seattle Designer's Cool, New Kiddie Chairs

Some parents anticipating the arrival of a new babe distract themselves with tasks like finding the perfect baby name, Bruce Hanamura created a kiddie chair line.

The owner of The Design Pallet, and maker of its custom adult furniture works, first dreamed up a bunny chair (boasting a back composed of plucky long ears) while waiting for his daughter to make her appearance. Soon his animal habitat made room for a squirrel, fox and beaver as well, and the new online shop, Moriko, was born. Hanamura's handcrafted "little seats for little peeps," priced at $295, are all made of natural woods and feature modly minimal lines sure to make them a treasured family heirloom.

Plus, they are just so darn cute.
