"When Our Kids Were Born, We Made Our First Promise To Them


"I love you so much! I will never let anything ever hurt you, I promise!!!"


None of us expected them to get hurt by their own bedroom furniture.


This has to change now, so we don't go another day with a child getting injured or another parent's senseless loss of their child. It has been over 25 years of the exact same product design that's obviously not working! Yet, it's still the only option available. We put our kids at risk of being harmed every single day by furniture that was 'supposedly' made for them. Yet all it is doing is harming them. This has to stop.


Kerrington Home Inc. is making those changes!


We think you'll like what you will see, and we know you will feel better about tucking in your bundle of joy every night. That promise we all make to our children the first day they're born, we will be able to say we kept!"

In the News Today

Designing this line of furniture is not only necessary to keep our kids safe, but it is also long overdue. In our opinion, the solutions to all parents' needs for over 23 years have been the same things without any change. This has led not only to various injury, death and countless other claims to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, but also to many manufacturers and companies choosing to get out of children's furniture all together.(1) In 2017, Target recalled 175,000 children's dressers for tipping onto kids(2). IKEA is the most recent example of a scandal involving tipping over on toddlers. We believe the industry has recognized for years that there is a need for safer beds to prevent roll off and safer dressers to prevent tipping. There is also a need to help children to not feel so overwhelmed by the large-scale furniture on the market today.

Our Vision

For Every Adventurous Kid

Kerrington Home seeks to provide solutions to problems such as roll off from bunk beds and junior loft beds for children up to the dorm days of college. No longer does a parent need listen to a pediatrician advise them that the best thing they could do is to, “Just place a mattress on the floor, because the child will never know the difference”. The child may not know the difference! We believe sensible parents that always want to keep up with “The Joneses” will! In all of the research we have done, not one single mother or father said that they would nicely furnish their entire home, but in their children's room only opt to throw a mattress on the floor and that be it! Nearly everyone that we surveyed advised that would be unacceptable to them.


With the characteristic themes that we have designed, along with the safety systems that are in place throughout each unit, we allow for children to stay in their own beds longer, because the beds are designed to grow with the children as they grow -- such as a bassinet that can change into a crib as needed, and a junior loft that can rise to become a standard six-foot-high loft bed or lower into a standard size twin. This collection will also reduce children's fears of the dark by using LED lighting that will also have a nightlight feature and that is attached to virtually every nook and cranny of each piece of furniture, including on the top of night stands (instead of underneath, as commonly seen on existing furniture today) and I . 


With our character themed 4' floor lamps helping to guide the way, 

we believe children's fears will melt away!

Rubber Foam is Sturdy Yet Soft So Kids Won't Get Hurt!

LED Back-lit Nightlights So Kids Aren't Afraid!

Solid Wood Construction Keeps Structure Sound!

You Can Clearly See How Excited Everyone Is!

We believe there is a need for safer beds to prevent roll off, safer dressers to prevent tipping, as well a need for helping children to not feel so overwhelmed by the large-scale furniture on the market today. With our fun and inviting products, we believe it will be more enticing for kids to want to sleep in their own beds and that things will be safer, giving their parents a piece of mind.

Currently, there are companies getting out of making children’s furniture, those who have dropped children’s furniture all together, and those companies who are being sued (5) over the lack of quality in their children’s furniture. Many companies refuse to get back into developing children’s furniture (4) simply because of what's entailed to keep up with all the regulations involved. This is not something that we are concerned with. Since we are a new company, we can start from scratch! We do not have to revamp a company to meet the needs of regulation. We can go in with a clean slate while implementing regulation from the beginning. Therefore, we believe our cost will be lower in meeting the guidelines, because we have kept in line and will continue to keep these regulations at the forefront of all we do, from the beginning. 


The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 ("CPSIA") (1) hasn't changed a whole lot since 1994.  The main two updates have been for defining of the terminology of what the products are now being called and for what age range they are being used, one being passed in early 2010 called the "Proposed Interpretative Rule: Interpretation of Children's Product" (2) and the other in late 2010 called the "Final Interpretative Rule: Interpretation of Children’s Product".  (3)  These have provided the most recent final judgment on the matter of standard, which led to 140 manufacturers leaving the  children's furniture market together. In fact, as you can see in the charts below, the children's furniture market is poised to grow & fast!

Furniture Industry Statistics & Facts

This company was launched because of a simple want to solve problems that parents have been coming to us about over the past twelve years. Over the years, we've seen a countless number of families come into the showroom, make a loop around the store, and leave within about fifteen minutes. Our experience, as well as a countless number of studies, has demonstrated that retailers average parents taking between 9-13 visits to several brick-and-mortar stores (3) and 18 to 27 e-commerce sites (4), before even making a purchase due to the lack of key features and benefits they find in products on the market right now. Many parents and grandparents have confided in us with their complaints about what is unavailable for their children within the marketplace. 


What we see available currently are overpriced bunk beds that children fall out of, or beds that are so massive and overpowering that they cause children to get scared, forcing them to not want to sleep in their own rooms. We have interviewed several pediatricians regarding the roll-off topic as well, such as Dr. Sylvester C. Adjufo, M.D., F.A.A.P (1) board certified pediatrician in comprehensive pediatric care. (2) He suggests to parents to, "Just place a mattress on the floor and the child will be fine." When we discovered this is what was being offered as the solution from pediatricians, we knew something else had to be done!


With the safer designs and imaginative innovations, Kerrington Home will help parents feel more confident about making that purchase from a retailer on the first or second visit. We will also make little ones readier than ever to sleep in their bedrooms. We will give parents the much-needed piece of mind that their child will not roll from his or her bunk bed, dressers will not topple over on top of them, and their child will not have to be completely afraid of the dark and his or her room.

Children's furniture products fall under the broader furniture industry, and account for nearly 8% of the revenue in the industry in the US. Children's furniture is a segment of the overall furniture market based on product use by a specific target audience, those in the age group of 0-12 years. This has been further sub-segmented into two age groups: 0-4 years and 5-12 years. The children's furniture market in the US is expected to grow at a CAGR (1) of 4.52% during the period 2016-2020. We plan to start with four designs and increase this amount in three months by another full design. Each month after that, we plan to increase every month by one design. After the first year, we plan to be adding more retailers at a 5% increase, and another 8% increase in retailers in the third year.
