Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed. Drawers And Lift Top Lids. Lift Top Lids can also present a hazard for small children. Very often particularly in the case of wooden coffee tables the lid can be very heavy. Because of this there is always the possibility of small children trapping their fingers. If you select a table of this kind it may be necessary to secure the top until your children are older to prevent injury.
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.
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.
When selecting a table keep in mind that in contrast to other furnishings you can go in an entirely different direction with a round glass table. This is particularly true if you decide to make the table a statement or focal piece in the room such as if you buy a coffee table that is built around a nice sculpture or work of art. A table like this can work just as well in a traditional furnished room as it does in a modern contemporary or transitional room. It stands apart while still blending in nicely to its surroundings. Such is the beauty of a glass coffee table.
