Design for kids is the focus of this week's Chron. Even if you don't have kids, if you earthquake-proof your home you're on your way to childproofing it. Both involve anchoring furniture and objects to prevent dangerous topples.
There's not much that's new in the kid design coverage, but we do love the pricey highchairs. Wish they made Mozzee's Nest (the one in the middle) in an adult size.
• Modern high chairs definitely not child's play: You guessed it: highchairs are the new strollers.

• First step of childproofing: Crawl around: From the down-low, you'll learn just how easy it is to fall, poison yourself, suffocate, collide with hard or sharp objects, or get mixed up with water or fire. (Not to mention topple the furniture onto yourself.)
• DIARY OF A RENTER, PART 7 (CONCLUSION): Jerome Gagnon concludes his serial on a recent move from one small SF apartment into an even smaller one.
• Perfume gardens all year with daphne: Aromatic daphnes in all shapes and sizes and degrees of difficulty-to-grow.
