If have kids and pets in your home, you know you sometimes need to make some compromises to keep them — and your furniture — safe. When kids and pets are in the mix, certain shapes, textures and even colors are suddenly off limits.
From the living room to the bedroom, these are my five top furniture picks for family-proof living.
Denver Sofa and Loveseat
The family room demands resistant seating that will stand the test of time. For a durable couch that’s both comfortable and stylish, look no further than the Denver Sofa and Loveseat. At $2098, this set is well worth its price, with a super-soft top grain leather and bagged and baffled back cushions that maintain their shape. The Denver Sofa and Loveseat are hand-finished in a tri-tone color range and are embellished with a brass nail head trim for a cozy, rustic look.
Elk River Multi Rug
Kids and pets are great, but their messes? Not so much. Do your best to disguise unfortunate stains and hair with the right area rug.
The Elk River Multi Rug is an on-trend choice that resembles an antique tribal kilim and is only $499! This rug is unique because it adds interesting color and texture, yet has a soft, neutral color palette that can be integrated into any space. Another reason this accessory is a good addition to a family home is because it is a short pile rug, so it’s easy to clean.
Rodeo Entertainment Console
Encourage your kids to keep the entertainment area clean with a TV console that’s easily accessible to them. The Rodeo Entertainment Console is a versatile and highly functional piece of furniture. Priced at $399, the console is made from sturdy, solid pine and is hand-finished for a unique, old world look. Use the drawers and shelves for TV accessories, toys and so much more!
Robinson Table and Chairs
Family dinners are made even better with a beautiful dining space! The Robinson Table is a classic beauty made of knotty oak veneers, rubberwood solids and a sturdy round base. Around the table, you can fit the four accompanying chairs, which are upholstered in an easy-to-clean polyester fabric. With no sharp corners, cozy upholstery and a fair price of $499, this dining set is a must-have for families!
Michael Captain Bed
The Michael Captain Bed is that elusive bed that your child can truly grow with. Built from rubberwood solids, this bed is a durable, structured piece of furniture for just $444! The bed not only has a trundle underneath for sleepovers, but it also has plentiful storage for clothing or toys. While this bed certainly complements a child’s room, its rich, rustic finish ensures it won’t look too juvenile in the years to come.
