We all share the fear that kids will rambunctiously run around the living room and accidentally bump their head on the coffee table or spill grape juice all over the ivory upholstered couch. While there's no such thing as kid-proof furniture, you can definitely shop home items with your children in mind.

Luckily, Amazon has a secret furniture section with a curated list of couches and coffee tables that are not only safer for kids, but they're made from durable materials that are easy to clean for those inevitable spills and cheese-coated fingers. The Design 101 page recommends shopping furniture pieces that don't have sharp edges, glass materials, or pointy corners—upholstered or round furniture is best. Next, you should look for durable, easy-to-clean fabric or leather upholstery. Fabric couches should be able to be easily spot cleaned or vacuumed, or machine-washable (if the cushion covers are removable). Leather furniture, on the other hand, is more stain-resistant and can be cleaned quickly with just a damp cloth. If you have a lot of clutter like toys, books, throw blankets, and pillows, you may want to look at furniture options that include discreet storage space.

Whether you're prepping your home for a child on-the-way, or replacing an outdated couch or run-down coffee table, these furniture options from Amazon are beautifully designed and built to last—even if your household doesn't have children.
