Brooks’ first seven months have flown right by and he’ll be walking before we know it! I know that having a toddling brings along a whole other round of baby proofing, so I’ve been trying to anticipate his first steps by making the house safe as can be. Coffee tables are one of the most dangerous pieces of furniture for a little one since they’re just the right height for them to hit their head on. Table edge bumpers are a good solution, but I’ve also been looking into replacing our coffee table altogether with a couple of chic poufs. Top them with a tray, and voila—a safe surface to set your drink on. Here are a few stylish coffee-table alternatives that would look great and put my mind at ease…
