The Modern Rocking Horse

by Johanne

Hi-Ho Rocking Horse, $875 USD at Design Within Reach

Made by Jarred Lim, the Hi-Ho rocking horse “reinterprets the traditional rocking horse with the idea that it can be viewed as a modern sculpture, capable of fitting into even the most sophisticated interior.

Says designer Lim: “The simple elements create a mature, timeless design that is fun without appearing childish.”

Trimmed with sheepskin from New Zealand that can be removed for cleaning, the Hi-Ho’s innards are made of recycled foam. Smart, stylish and fun- having little ones around doesn’t mean you have to compromise on design.

    Very cute horse but not sure how long it would stay white in my home with pets and baby.
    As good as it would look in front of my newly installed feature slate wall … I think I’ll stick to my original plan and spend the $ on an ethanol burning fire place.
    Check out this fireplace:

      Wow that’s a beautiful fireplace- white, too! 😉

      I agree it’s a cute rocking horse and it does come with designer pricing; there’s always DIY as an option. Hee hee.

      Thanks for the link to the fireplace. That’s super “cool”.
      As far as the horse – well – part of it is washable, right?

    Well actually, I don’t believe in practicality for every thing anyway, quite often aesthetic value reigns supreme. So I support the horse addition to the family/decor 100%.


  5. love it! when I was flipping through the catalog I literally said “Aww! how sweet!” how can you not?

    p.s thank you for all of your sweet comments on my blog lately!
