Nomi by evomore high chairWeb: Evomove.com

Designed in Norway, the Nomi by Evomore ($459.95) is the latest in multi-function high chairs from Europe that are sold as part high chair, part objet d’art. The Nomi is a next-generation Stokke Tripp Trapp (not surprisingly, since they are both designed by the same Norwegian industrial designer). Like the Tripp Trapp, the Nomi is designed to morph from use as a baby high chair to booster seat to older kid chair, all with the panache of Scandinavian design (versus the plastic bourgeoise aesthetic of Graco).

The twist here is the Nomi Baby Accessory, which turns the Nomi into a bouncer for chilling instead of eating. Naturally, that’s an extra $189.95 on top of the Nomi’s $380 base price.

A back and seat cushion? Another $59.95, please.

So if you are playing along with our home game version, that is nearly $700. For a high chair.

Since the Nomi by Evomore high chair was still relatively new as of press time, there is little reader feedback. Yes, it is pretty, but we don’t have much in the way of long-term feedback on durability and overall quality.

We know we have a subset of readers who love design and are willing to shell out big bucks for a certain baby aesthetic. The Nomi is clearly for you. For everyone else, we can’t find a way to justify a $700 price tag.
