Safety can be stylish. We talk a lot about style, but safety is an integral part of our culture at Raymour & Flanigan. Whether it's the safety of our guests or the well-being of our associates, there is nothing we value more.Who knew that child-proofing could be so elegant?
In your own home, there are steps you can take to ensure your family's safety. Survey your furniture for potential tipping hazards. While tall pieces, such as bedroom chests
, are the most obvious culprits, even a simple accent chest can tip over if you place a TV on top or overload the top drawers. Anything that a child could climb should also be anchored to the wall.
There are a lot of "child-proofing" products out there, but here's one of our favorite solutions that looks great too. Instead of lining your wood coffee table with foam strips or padded corners, swap it out for an upholstered cocktail ottoman
. This practical piece is soft on all sides, and we love the way it looks. Choose a complementing style or use it as an accent to spice up your room. Now that's our kind of family friendly!
