Fear not, gentle parents, for British designer Timothy Ben may have just solved your problem with a pair of smart, sturdy pieces that come with your little ones in mind. A low table and a tall chest, the Scribble and the Jackanory respectively, are elegant additions to the home that come with chalkboard panels ideal for an afternoon doodle or a last-minute shopping list.
