7 Kid-Friendly Coffee Tables


With a baby in the home, almost anything can become hazardous. One of the worst offenders is the coffee table, with its hard edges that can cut and bruise fragile skin. An often-suggested solution is to install bumpers on the corners and edges of a coffee table, announcing to the world that a baby lives here! For more style-savvy options, check out these coffee tables below. We begin with fairly kid-friendly options and move on to the most child-friendly choices, starting with a classic lucite coffee table.

1. CB2 Peekaboo Clear Coffee Table ($279)

Lucite is stylish and less dangerous than a glass coffee table. The rounded edges of this table are a plus.

2. Harper Mid-Century Modern Molded Plywood Coffee Table ($284)

IF you love mid-century design, this Harper coffee table might do the trick. Its rounded edges and soft plywood are friendlier than thick, rectangular wooden coffee tables.
