It is my new focus at my business to recommend to all my clients furnishings and finishes in our homes that will make a safer environment for our families.

It is an epic FAIL that some people may not actually see but KNOW that something isn’t right. It has to do with having furniture in your room which have legs on everything…I see this issue a lot in homes that have wood floors. People forget that you need to alter the view on the bottom third of the room.
