If you are in the market for a high quality, attractive high chair, look no further. The Svan Signet Complete is a fully featured high chair that easily converts into a regular chair to grow with your child from infant to young adult. The sleek styling and compact size will fit well into any décor.
In the press
The Signet Complete highchair has been featured in magazines including British Vogue and in a feature called “Gear that Lasts” in American Baby magazine. The Signet has also been featured on the Steve Harvey Show and Ellen.
The Signet Complete is elegant and modern, more closely resembling fine furniture than baby gear. The small but sturdy base makes the Signet very secure without taking up too much space in your home. The bentwood design is a very attractive feature on this highchair. The Signet Complete comes in five colors, Cherry, Espresso, Mahogany, Natural, and Whitewash to blend with the rest of your furniture. The seat featured here is in color natural with sage cushioning. Using safe materials is important to Svan, the Signet Complete is BPA-, phthalate- and lead free for your peace of mind and your child’s safety.
With adjustable seat height and foot rest, this Signet high chair is ergonomic and very comfortable for babies and kids of all ages. The Signet is recommended for ages 6 months and up since the seat does not recline; babies will need to be able to sit on their own, but 6 months is also the recommended age for starting solid foods, so that works out well. The footrest is a very nice feature of this seat – having their feet dangling can be uncomfortable for children, so a footrest definitely a plus.
This highchair also features a removable five-point harness strap to keep babies seated securely and safely. The strap is easy to attach and easy to remove, and the buckle is simple to operate. The Complete model, an upgrade from the Signet Essential chair, comes with a removable tray with a dishwasher safe plastic cover, a wraparound guard, and a crotch bar. With the tray attached, the chair acts as a traditional highchair; with the tray removed, the chair can be pushed right up to the table so your baby or toddler can join the rest of the family for meals; and with the guard, harness strap and crotch bar removed, the Signet becomes a big-kid chair. At 18 pounds and compact in size, this highchair is easy to move around the house.
Setting it up
The Signet Complete does require assembly, but once put together it is very sturdy and durable. The smooth finish is easy to wipe clean, and the removable tray cover is very easy to clean, either on the seat or in the dishwasher. As with any wooden furniture assembled with bolts, the Signet Complete may require tightening from time-to-time. This is to be expected, and only ensures the extended life of this chair, but you’ll want to remember to hold onto the included Allen wrench.
The box that the chair comes in is surprisingly very compact
Included in the box is 12 peices that need to be assembled with the tools you need and an instruction manual.
Converting the seat out of highchair mode is also a simple task with the included Allen wrench. You will simply remove the tray, five-point harness strap, guard and crotch bar and the seat is ready for bigger kids and young adults.
This highchair has some really great features, but the biggest draw has to be its versatility. The fact that the Signet Complete easily converts from a highchair to an attractive regular chair, combined with its quality and durability, will make this chair an excellent piece of furniture to last in your home for many years to come. Another favorite feature is that the tray can be hung from the back of the seat for storage.
One drawback to this seat is that the assembly instructions are not very clear. Once you get it together, though, it’s a pretty great chair. Another issue is that the plastic tray cover is a really tight fit. This is good in a way, because your baby or toddler is not going to be able to knock the cover off, but it also makes it difficult for adults to remove, especially when it’s smeared in food.
