Convinced? Take your pick from a variety of desks and chairs then!
What we love: The moll Champion study desk (above) features a split desktop: an adjustable desktop panel that allows for various ergonomic angles for drawing, writing or reading, and a flat level working surface for a laptop, books and stationery.

16. Danish Design Co
If there’s one thing we can’t beat the Scandinavians at, it has got to be furniture design. Danish Design Co is the third and final store on this list of Scandinavian origin. We also love how child-friendly these brands are! At Danish Design Co, you will find sleek and elegant kids furniture that you could have only dreamed about till date. This store offers furniture of supreme quality for babies, kids and tweens.
What we love: The cots from their Wood Collection (above) have lowered end boards and a raised lying surface thus allowing a more ergonomic and closer contact between parent and baby. It also comes with two height settings, a short grid side and three removable bars. This means it can be converted into a bed once baby grows up. How’s that for practicality and cost-efficiency?
