A kid-sized armchair or play table set is an essential part of any playroom -- but buying furniture in a smaller size doesn't mean you have to go with a version that looks like it was made for kids. These armchairs, play tables, and chair sets are stylish and functional, so you can put them in any room of your home (yes -- even your living room!) without giving up your design sensibility.

1. Land of Nod Two-Tone Teak Chairs and Table

The two-tone teak collection from Land of Nod includes a play table, bench, and chairs in a variety of colors -- white, blue, green, pink, and yellow. Mix them for a playroom set customized to your space (and your kids' preference), or choose a matching set in classic white and teak to create a kids' area in your main living space that doesn't look so childish.

2. Ikea Poang

The Ikea Poang chair is one of the company's most popular and iconic pieces of furniture, and the pint-size kids' version brings the same simple Scandinavian style to your playroom or child's bedroom. You only have one color option -- unobtrusive natural wood with a machine-washable beige cover -- but it's just the right size for your little one to sit with a picture book or feed a baby doll.

3. Kidkraft Round Storage Table and Chair Set

The more modern look of KidKraft's round storage table and chair combination is a younger-sibling-friendly alternative to sets that come with sharp corners and edges. It also comes with a removable tabletop that hides a hanging basket -- an easily-accessible place to keep favorite toys, blocks, or art supplies that your kids can get to on their own, but that stay out of sight when not in use.

4. Rosenberry Rooms Acapulco Chair

Rosenberry Rooms baby Acapulco chair, made with a seat of woven vinyl cord, is a visually striking piece of furniture that's as at home in your family room as it is in your finished basement; it's also durable enough to use outside in the backyard or on the patio. Choose one of 11 different colors, or pair several for a vibrant combination your kids and their friends will love to sit in.

5. Pottery Barn Kids Anywhere Chair

The Anywhere Chair from Pottery Barn Kids comes in three sizes to accommodate everyone from toddlers to school-age kids, and in a seemingly endless array of patterns and colors: Solid with contrasting piping, mini dots or hearts, seasonal plaids, superhero prints, stripes, and more. You can also add a name and custom-embroidered icon to create one for your child that's all his or her own.

6. P'kolino Chalk Table

The P'kolino Chalk table is ideal for your budding artist, since the center part of the table top is removable and reversible, with a chalkboard on one side for their next great masterpiece. Under the board is a hidden storage area for their most-used crayons, markers, and other art supplies. Choose from a traditional blackboard or a bright pink version to get your kids' creative juices flowing.

7. Multi Function Table and Chair Set

The multi-function table and chair set from One Step Ahead may not be as colorful as some of the other options you'll see, but it's hard to beat it for sheer usefulness. The largest piece can be used as a table, set up on one side to work as a desk, or turned over to create a bench big enough for two kids to share; the chairs can be used as bucket stools, desk chairs, or a small side tables. It's a set that works as well for tea parties as for art projects without taking over your living space.
