I am a Spindle Back Children’s Chair. Children like chairs, are easier to build strong than they are to repair when they are older.
Ryuji Mitani describes the idea behind these chairs perfectly! He explains that children grow up fast, which seems to be the reason why people tend to buy cheap plastic, disposable furniture for their young ones. After awhile, these disposable items start to overflow in a room. Furniture is an important factor in determining the quality of a room. The same is true for small furniture. Children who use chairs and desks that are made well will be engrained with the feeling of wood, the feeling of its use and the quality of wood items without even knowing it.
Even if the child gets bigger and no longer uses the chair, it is durable enough for an adult. For example, it can be used at the entrance of a home for tying on shoes. Well-crafted, solid wood furniture can be used for hundreds of years. When that child becomes an adult and becomes a parent themself, they can hand the chair over to their child – a piece of furniture they have used intimately since childhood. The story of that person is engraved on the chair.
