One thing’s for sure — there would be no need to worry about your tot’s destructive side if you outfit his playroom in designer Pete Oyler’s Rip + Tatter Kid’s Chair. Designed for children ages 2-5, the lightweight perches, which are made of industrial cardboard, achieved their rugged aesthetic after Oyler sculpted them via hammering. 100% recyclable, he describes them as non-toxic and “full of energy.” Bonus: a Rip + Tatter chair is also perhaps the only furniture in your home that will maintain its appeal if your frisky feline decides to use it as a scratching post after a roll in some seriously potent cat nip. *All orders taken via email: [email protected]
