Svan, the Swedish word for swan, is an apt name for this beautiful bent birch wood chair that can be used both as a baby high chair or youth chair. The seat and footrest can be freely adjusted along the main beam, so the chair can be adjusted anytime to fit precisely, be it seat depth, seat height and footrest height. (It even accommodates adults up to 250 pounds.)
The Svan Chair is petite; appropriately scaled for a child. Babies often seem overwhelmed in plastic high chairs; not so in the Svan. Babies in Svan chairs look like they are sitting naturally at the table with their parents. The Svan is ergonomically designed so babies sit up straight. They can look around, satisfying natural curiosity and practicing good posture from the start. This aids in cleanup too, because when a child sits up straight, stray food falls onto the tray, rather than into his lap, as is the case in oversize high chairs, which tend to leave a large gap between the tray and the child.
The Svan chair has a three-point safety harness which is recommended for use with kids up to age three. When no longer needed, the harness can be removed.
The seat can be used with our without the included tray, which can be stored on the back of the chair when not in use. To use, the tray clips into two small holes on either side of the safety guard. When the tray is removed, the safety guard remains in place, so your child can eat safely when pushed right up to the table.
Once the infant safety guard is removed, the tray can no longer be attached, but toddlers can climb in and out on their own, giving them some independence.
The chair is compact, yet solid and sturdy. It is also very lightweight and easy to move. This is a great benefit if you need to maneuver the chair with one hand when you’ve got a squirming baby in the other.
Spilling the beans: The tray is a bit small and doesn’t have any side lips to catch stuff so make sure to look into the Tray Cover for messier babies. That said, this chair is really a gem for use at the family table, which is where your child will eat once he becomes a toddler anyway.

Stable, Easy To Assemble, Lightweight
Our son became a difficult eater in his highchair. We moved him to the booster seat with no improvement. After an accident with the booster seat we needed to find another option. After a lot of research we settled on this chair. He loves it. Meal time has gone from awful to awesome. He even likes to sit in it to color. Would definitely recommend.

Slightly hard to assemble
We love our Svan, it is very stylish and very functional. We haven't had any problems with it. It came with a great instructional video, but for us it took a little while to assemble. Once assembled it is very easy to adjust and configure. I look forward to using it as my daughter grows older.
Stable, Stylish, Lightweight
Chips easily, Hard To Clean
This high chair looks like real furniture and is very stylish but is definitely not worth the money. After 2 months of using this highchair the finish started coming off in numerous spots all over the high chair. The tray also slopes after time and the bolt needs to be tightened which also causes chipping of the finish. We are extremely disappointed with this product.
Easy to Clean, Stylish, Stable, Easy To Assemble
We have two of these and we like them a lot. They are easy to assemble and easy to adjust as your child grows. They offer great ergonomic support (adjustable seat depth, footrest height, etc.) and you can easily remove the plastic tray cover for cleaning (or the whole tray when they are ready to eat at the table). Also they look like real furniture - they look just as great at our dining room table at Thanksgiving as they do at our kitchen table the rest of the year.
The seat cushions are great and can be machine washed/dried (which is really helpful if you have a messy eater or a potty training toddler). We bought an extra seat cushion to keep around in case of emergencies.
The only reason I gave it 4 beans instead of 5 is that you periodically (once every few months) have to tighten the bolts if you have a child who is very active at the table or if you often drag the chair from one room to another. It is occasionally annoying, but definitely not a deal breaker.
