Washington, D.C. (January 17, 2024) – Home Design, a company specializing in furniture and home décor, has announced a recall of its upholstered low-profile standard and platform beds due to potential fall and injury hazards.

Safety Concerns:

The recalled beds can break, sag, or collapse during use, posing a risk of serious injury to occupants. Home Design has received 128 reports of such incidents, including 36 resulting in injuries. The injuries sustained included cuts, bruises, and bumps.

Affected Models:

The recall encompasses all upholstered low-profile standard and platform beds sold by Home Design, Wayfair, Walmart.com, and Overstock.com from July 2018 through November 2023 for between $100 and $300.

The beds were sold at various retailers nationwide between January 2021 and December 2023. Consumers can identify the specific model of their bed by checking the label located on the underside of the frame.

What Consumers Should Do:

Home Design urges consumers to immediately stop using the recalled beds and contact the company for free replacement slats and side rails. To initiate the recall process, consumers can:

  • Visit the Home Design website at http://homedesign.com/ and click on the “Product Recalls” tab.
  • Call Home Design customer service at (833) 383-2967 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.

Consumers are advised to keep the recalled bed in a safe location away from children and pets until the repair parts are received and installed.

Consumer Protection Agency Comments:

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a statement urging consumers to take the recall seriously and follow the provided instructions. “These beds pose a potential safety hazard,” said a CPSC spokesperson. “We encourage everyone who owns one of the recalled beds to contact Home Design immediately for repair or replacement parts.”
