Dad tip #95: It's okay to want the baby furniture to match the room

When shopping for baby highchairs, I seem to recall looking at the Chicco Polly Explorer Highchair and the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care Highchair. Both chairs seemed to get pretty decent reviews, but the Fisher-Price highchair definitely seemed to have the slight edge.

I honestly can't remember how we came to a final decision, but I suspect that we went with the Chicco at least partially because it matches our dining room better. The modern lines and earth tones of the Chicco Explorer clearly fit in with espresso wood furniture better than the bright primary colors of the Fisher-Price Rainforest.

Don't get me wrong, the Fisher-Price chair is wicked cute, but it really wouldn't match as well as the Chicco does. In the grand scheme of things, as long as the chair is functional and safe, it doesn't matter what it looks like ... but, if by CHANCE you can get the baby furniture to match the room, what's the harm in that?
