How did Scandinavian Child come about? When I was expecting our first child, my husband Christer and I wanted to find a way for me to have more freedom to devote to my family. Before Kelly's birth, we visited Christer's homeland of Sweden. While window shopping, we spotted this incredibly elegant high chair by Svan®. When I learned of the safety and functionality inherent in its design, I knew I had discovered something remarkable. Not only did I find the perfect high chair for our daughter, I also wanted to share the beauty and practicality of Scandinavian design with other parents. An entrepreneur at heart, I decided to introduce these extraordinary designs in the United States. So I created Scandinavian Child. (I actually got the call from Svan one hour after Kelly was born!) Along the way, we have also welcomed our son Anton, and I've discovered more products that satisfy the same high standards.
"Designs without compromise" - what does that mean? At the heart of our business is helping parents make smart choices for their children, choices they can feel good about. We find extraordinary pieces that prove you can have it all: superior workmanship, safety, ease of use, ergonomics, environmental responsibility - without sacrificing distinctive style. Every brand we represent must give parents the exceptional quality they demand - without compromising any of their expectations. On helping parents give their children the world's best. I'm crazy about my children and want the very best for them. That's why I'm so committed to helping other parents find these remarkable products that aren't available just anywhere. Since SCI first introduced the Svan line, we've added products from around the world – all meeting our stringent criteria. By working with top retailers across the United States and Canada, SCI is making it easier for parents to discover the finest quality baby furnishings that fit their lifestyle. We're proof that you don't have to compromise on what's important, especially where your child is concerned.
Why the name Scandinavian Child? Well, it's obvious not all of our products are from Scandinavia, the original idea was to pursue Scandinavian shops to find great products. But, other great products found us. The ones I love the most have the same essence of Scandinavian style, even though they are not actually from Scandinavia. Clean lines, simplicity, functionality, and of course, safety are the hallmarks of every product that SCI represents no matter where it's made.
