Baby Furniture, 101

You have probably heard your parents or grandparents talking about the "family crib." It may be an heirloom piece that has been in the family for generations and has a lot of sentimental value, but these older cribs do not meet today's safety standards. Unfortunately, the family crib really should not be used for your baby's nursery. But this sweet looking Young America Isabella Built to Grow Debut Convertible Crib, pictured above, goes above and beyond the safety standards. September is National Baby Safety Month and Belfort Furniture only carries baby furniture from manufacturers that concentrate on safety. Not only do they adhere to the guidelines put in place by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, (JPMA) and the American Society for Testing and Materials, (ASTM), they go beyond their requirements. Our manufacturers understand that when it comes to children, you can never be too safe and that is why Belfort Furniture has selected to carry their products.

The Young America collection by Stanley has developed their own safety standards called SafeT3 ™ .

1. Safety Engineered.  Design features surpass even the most stringent mandatory or voluntary safety guidelines.

2. Safety Built. All of the furniture is manufactured in the Stanley, Robbinsville North Carolina factory, which gives them an unparalleled level of quality control.

3. Safety Certified. On top of going above and beyond all safety standards, Stanley Young America pursues the additional step of having all of their cribs certified by an independent safety inspector.

In addition, all Young America Cribs have been GreenGuard certified. GreenGuard Products have been independently tested and meet the most rigorous chemical emission standards in the world. They are making furniture that is safe, beautiful and comfortable for your children so everyone in the family can get a good night’s sleep.

Another unique feature for this line of baby furniture is that the furniture is designed to grow as your child grows. Take a look at the Stanley Young America, All Seasons, Built to Grow, Bravo Convertible Crib. This furniture starts out as a crib, turns into a toddler bed and then transforms into a full-size bed. The furniture literally grows with your child.

Right now is a great time to purchase your nursery furniture, Young America furniture from Stanley is available for 10% off the regular price. The semi-annual factory authorized children's furniture sale is for a limited time only, so don't delay.

This furniture is proudly made in America and has environmental certifications that surpass all other brands. The cribs are safe and designed to grow with your child, but that's not all. This furniture comes in an amazing variety of styles and a rainbow of colors. Interior design for 2012 is all about big pops of color. Why not bring in color to your nursery?
