how to make this $25 high chair look expensive


It’s no secret that Ikea is a great place to buy affordable baby products. But here’s one way to customize one of their most poplar items.

Recognize this high chair? It’s no secret that Ikea is a great place to buy baby products. And at $25 (currently on sale in Canada for $19.99), the Ikea Antilop high chair is tough to beat. It’s wipeable, the legs come off and you can even stack them. But similar to the chair, the Ikea-made accessories for the Antilop are pretty basic.

Enter Yeah Baby Goods.

Frustrated by the hard to remove tray, overly roomy seat—and the fact that none of the Ikea accessories fit in with the decor of her home, mompreneur Katie Kruithof decided to give her chair an upgrade. She designed dishwasher safe, food-grade silicone placemats to fit perfectly into the existing tray, which can be removed for easy clean-up. Next came designer fabric covers for the Antilop seat insert (available from Ikea for $5). In 2016, she opened an Etsy shop and started selling the goods to other Ikea-loving parents.

In 2019, she added adjustable foot rests in bamboo, maple and cherry wood to give the chair the perfect finishing touch. Note: occupational therapists agree that high chairs without foot rests can be detrimental to mealtime success as it leaves baby’s feet dangling, which can be quite uncomfortable.

While lots of other hacks of the Antilop chair exist on the internet (this one uses an inexpensive exercise band to create a pseudo foot rest), Kruithof easily has one of the most aesthetically pleasing approaches.

Take a look at some of the products below (Pinterest moms, you’ve been warned!):

Cushion covers retail for $49 and placemats $22, plus shipping and duty. They sell out quickly, so be sure to check their website often for restocking.
