NORTHBROOK, Ill. – Home furnishings retailer Crate and Barrel has recalled 2,440 of its twin- and full-size Parke beds due to a fall hazard that can occur as the headboard can separate from the side rails.
According the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the company has received nine reports of the headboard separating from the frame, including two foot injuries. It has recommended that consumers immediately stop using the recalled beds and contact the retailer for a replacement.
The recall involves the Parke twin and full beds in white, navy and charcoal finishes. The SKU numbers and “Crate and Barrel” and “Parke” are printed on the headboard. For a list of respective SKU numbers, click here.
The beds were made in Vietnam and imported by Crate and Barrel of Northbrook, Ill. They were sold in Crate and Barrel stores nationwide and sold online at www.crateandbarrel.com from December 2018 and January 2020 for $500 for the twin bed and $600 for the full-sized bed.

I’m Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
