Coffee Table. Wednesday , January 24th , 2018 - 08:09:22 AM
In the 1950s coffee tables were extremely chic and every house had at least one if not several. Few living rooms were without these tables and often if there was a family room or playroom the sofa grouping there would have one too. While traditional wood tables have always been popular round glass coffee tables really came into their own during this period as modern and contemporary furnishings came back into fashion.
Wooden Coffee Tables. Wooden coffee tables have less safety problems as a rule than glass ones; however there are still hazards that can exist. One of the particular dangers commonly encountered is the problem of small children learning to walk who injure themselves on sharp corners. Many baby and parenting shops and even IKEA now sell corner bumpers; small rounded foam or plastic caps that help to prevent injury. Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase.
Drawers are another hazard for small children. Fingers are easily pinched and trapped. As with so many other areas of the home safety features may need to be incorporated such as drawer locks in order to keep your child safe. As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate.
