Furniture Stand: Know your furniture before you buy

Child Furniture

Children need much the same furniture as adults but on a smaller scale. A child's furniture can be fun to shop for with its bright colours and interesting designs. Keep in mind though that while certain items might be fun for a five-year-old, you may want to purchase main pieces that will grow with the child.

Child furniture can include anything from comfy chairs and small couches to a computer desk. Look for furniture that fits the child so that they are comfortable when sitting and when working at a desk. As with adults, sitting in an uncomfortable position any period of time can cause back and neck strain.
