In the past two years, many of us have spent a greater deal of time in our homes. It comes as no surprise that furniture industry trends are moving toward making our dwelling spaces as comfortable and convenient as possible, as evidenced by the electrification of furniture. This is furniture that consumers can easily move and adapt for different uses and environments and a new hybrid residential-commercial (resimercial) furniture segment.

With these trends comes additional safety considerations, such as flammability, chemical content and chemical emissions.
 
Taking action to learn about the safety landscape surrounding electrified furniture products can help you minimize their potential safety hazards and build your customers’ trust in your products.
