If you want to instill an appreciation of classic design into your children from an early age, you need to kit out their rooms with items from the Knoll Kids collection. Although it just might set you back the best part of your savings to do it.
Knoll Kids are essentially sized-down versions of classic mid-century design from the Knoll catalogue, including Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chair and stool, Eero Saarinen's Womb chair, Harry Bertoia's Diamond chair and our favourite, Kazuhide Takahama's 1960s Suzanne lounge seating (as seen above).
The size might have shrunk, but the quality and attention to detail are exactly as you would find in the 'grown up' versions, which means the prices aren't a million miles apart either. We haven't found a UK stockist of these as yet, but they are on general sale in the US, so that gives us a rough guide on prices. The Suzanne seating starts at $1,652, the Diamond at $530, the Womb chair at a staggering $2,380 and the Barcelona is yours from – wait for it – $3,674.
