Restaurant High Chair

Scandinavian Selection Ltd has been supplying the No-Tray High Chair and other innovative products to the hospitality industry for 30 years. It all started in 1984 when Murray Planidin left his City job to set up an agency importing Scandinavian products to the UK. With a Swedish and drawn to the clean design and high-quality manufacture (back when Ikea was in Sweden only!), he saw the potential for hand-picked products in the UK. The first Scandinavian Selection catalogue was quite a mix of products, mostly wooden items, lots of craft kits for famillies, a birdhouse, decorative shelves.

And then one day, a restaurant ordered not one chair, but six! Then another did the same. Suddenly the potential for this new-fangled "No-Tray" design, where children would sit around the table with their families and not eat from a plastic tray, was beginning to be realised. Not long after McDonalds responded to an ad in a trade magazine and ordered 400 chairs.
