We had to put all our vintage mid-century furniture in hiding when we decided to procreate. Our Eames Surfboard table and our Alvar Aalto stools were not exactly toddler friendly. We still love the look of modern furniture though, so until our sticky-handed, Hot Wheels wielding precious bundles grow up and leave home, we'll replace the real thing with these charming Pablo Side Tables ($100 for a set of three) in a punchy color combo. They're modern, but we don't have to start sweating profusely every time Junior goes near one of them with a leaky sippy cup or a blunt object.
