Jamboo Creations HearthSoft Review and Giveaway

jamboo creations - from heart to home
        Over the years growing up, I as many of us do I've slowly acquired certain tastes and dislikes.  I have actually determined a certain set of requirements for my next home (hopefully the one I plan to grow old in).  More specifically the one that applies to this review is a natural fireplace.  This of course poses a major issue if we decide to move in the next few years as the one in our home now is a constant problem when it comes to my boys.


        With having young children a fireplace can become more of a hazard than a beauty.  Dane and especially Declan are always jumping around, about, and on the fireplace resulting in several cuts and bruises - thankfully no hospital trips just yet!

        We have always ghetto rigged the fireplace with foam of all kinds and it's honestly never stayed put.  Also lets be honest it was more of an eyesore than anything but what else were we going to do? It's not like there were too many other solutions out there that worked any better.  Then a few weeks ago I cam across a solution I wish I had known about years ago!!

        Jamboo Creations was started by parents looking for the same solution to this normal problem encountered by tons of new parents!  In case you were wondering "Jamboo is an acronym derived from combining the initials of our son, Jack Allen Maguire, who we affectionately call Boo." Hearthsoft is the amazing creation made by these parents which is a protective AND comfortable cover for your fireplace.

        "Each HearthSoft™ is individually cut and professionally sewn in our very own workroom in Atlanta, GA. Our goal is to make quality products that are truly unique in design and function for children in the home."

        These are unlike anything I've seen before and I could not be happier I discovered Jamboo Creations.  Thankfully they agreed to send me over one of their Heathsofts to review.  These are all custom made to fit any size fireplace and currently come in 28 different colors and fabrics.

        I cannot begin to tell you how much I love my Hearthsoft.  Not only does this add a bit of flare to my living room but it creates even more seating area for when we have our large (and frequent) get togethers.  As you can see from my pictures the boys absolutely love that they can jump on the Fireplace now without us yelling at them to stay away or without fear of hurting themselves.

        Every single person who has sat on this has said they could not tell (if they didn't already know) that there was a brick fireplace hearth underneath.  This is super fluffy and definitely couch comfy so you don't have to feel like you are sitting on a rough surface.  Besides sitting you can also tell its comfortable enough to pass out on (haha) as the picture below is my sister after a long but typical family Easter (kind of staged).

Cost/Available to purchase:  $289-379 HearthSoft 
Recommendation:  I don't know that I could say a single bad thing about this company or product!  This is a quality made product sure to last a lifetime and more.  I have already told my husband as well as everyone I know that I will not live in another home without a Hearthsoft as part of my decor!  I know it may seem expensive but this really is reasonably priced for this type of quality and solution in my opinion not to mention it will last you a lifetime (or so I am pretty sure it will)!  This is definitely something we will be removing and taking with us to the next house!

  1. I don't have kids, but this still seems like a fantastic product just to create extra seating without taking up any more room. I never seem to have enough places for guests to sit and think this would be great.

  2. I am loving this product, I wish it was around when my children were small. I could still definitely use this as extra seating in our home or for a great afternoon nap!

  4. HearthSoft this is a very great idea, wish I had it when my kids were younger as I had numerous times they would trip and fall and scarp knees or the time one fell and hit his head and got a real noggin hit, but he did find. But moma did not as I was constantly in fear that one would get hurt badly.. BUt God was watching and none did. These would be great for extra sitting area when alot of company also.

  5. These look so comfortable and one would look so good in my family room. My fingers are crossed for this win, because my family would feel truly blessed to win this.

    ReplyDelete
  6. This is a terrific product. Our family gets together often but we never have enough sitting for everyone and this would be a wonderful addition to the family room. I like the review, very thorough and concise.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I would love this. I never use my fireplace but it is there and the kids love to stand there and dance around and seem to get hurt alot. When we have family gatherings, family sit on it with cushions or towels. This would work great!

    ReplyDelete
  8. LOL That would be me, passed out with an empty bottle of wine. Love how it adds to the living room!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love this product! We have two fireplaces and I'd LOVE to have one of these to add extra seating in one of the two rooms!

    ReplyDelete
  10. We have two fireplaces and I'd LOVE one of these to add more seating to one of the two rooms. Very cool idea!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ha ha. I have 2 of those that love to jump on furniture. You picked a great color. It looks really comfy and the bottom picture of the lady drunk on the couch is funny.love the sense of humor.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have 3 that do the same thing. Those look sturdy enough to handle it though.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I find this a wonderful product that will add seating to my family room not only for kids but for family/friends that visit and we often do not have places for them to seat. I love the colors too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I could really use this for my in-home daycare. We spend a lot of time playing in the living room because it's a large room and right now I have the hearth covered with blankets. I have a little one who will be walking soon so it's a must to cover it up! I also entertain a lot and people love to sit on the hearth, especially in the winter when the gas logs are lit :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Looks great in that room and looks super comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This looks amazingly elegant and comfy. I hope I win :)

    I have a fireplace that is just begging for one of these!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the chestnut faux suede hearthsoft. Just moved & this would look awesome in my rec.

    ReplyDelete
  19. We have a fireplace that has caused one too many bumps, scrapes, and bruises... I just might have to look into this!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can't believe I have never heard of this company or product! My fiance and I will be building a house and it WILL have a fireplace. My concern is our five children that are very bouncy and energetic with a little klutzy thrown in. I like the fact that it comes in different colors also so that 10 years down the road when I decide I want to change colors/ layout of the living room area, I can find a Hearthsoft product in a color to fit my needs. I also saw they have throw pillows to match!! How awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the idea of all of these and wish they were around when my kids were small. I hope I get a chance to try one of these out and will write a review.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It really adds to the room. My mom needs one of these.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It looks so comfortable. I can't wait to build our home and have a fireplace!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do not have a fireplace but love the extra seating and comfort that this product provides. I hope I am able to win it

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fire places can be very dangers and having young one around makes it even worse the protection I see on this sight looks like it would work well and makes me wish i had a fireplace where i live now don't have one. lucky when we did nothing bad ever happened

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would love this because when I'm really cold I wish I would sit in front of the fireplace with something like this. I assume it can withstand the heat at close range

  27. I just discovered your page today through a giveaway. I love the looks of your page! The fireplace is great! I wish I had one in my home.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I really like the way it looks. We don't have room for one of these in our tiny apartment, but my mom would love it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is an interesting idea, but being married to a fire fighter, I wonder how prudent it is to have fabric so close to a fireplace? Even if it is fire retardent I would worry about the dust from the fireplace and ashes making it look dirty.

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a terrific idea! I wish this was around 20 yrs ago.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What an awesome idea! If I have a fireplace again in a future home, I would love this. Great idea for kids and grandkids.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is great my hearth is curved wonder if they make one to fit it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a nice idea for extra comfy seating. Would love to have one.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for all the reviews, giveaways, & all you post...keep up the great work

    ReplyDelete
  35. I also wish this was around when my kids were little. I was constantly telling them not to play near the fireplace. Love the of you with the wine!

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is a great idea. My son hit his head on our hearth when he was young. This would have been a lifesaver for us.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just heard about these through a couple contests. I think they are very handy. I like the colors also. Although I don't have a fireplace it would look very nice under a window as a window seat.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Genius! As a parent you worry about things like that. Plus, it's just nice for comfort. Now all my kid needs is a helmet - she seems to think it's okay to just walk into everything. Or stuff will magically move for her. Being a parent is never boring ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a great idea. I had never heard of this before. Wished I had known about it years ago when my kids were little. Now we live in a home with no fireplace but my next home [hoping to move in a few years ]I hope will have a fireplace.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This looks so comfortable, but I don't have any where to put it. I love your review and thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This page is awesome...you can find almost anything. Wonderful page to be connected to. Thanks for all you do :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. This a wonderful page full of useful information. I am happy to be connected to you. Thank you for what you do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wish I had a fireplace and I could put this in front of it - unfortunately I do not but I will use it for extra seating.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is such a good idea! When your a parent you are always rigging something with anything to make it safe for the kids. Its nice to know that they have created a covering for the fireplace that makes one less thing that we have to "rig"

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have just recently been seeing these, they look so comfy. It makes me wish I had known about this when I lived in my last home because we had a beautiful fireplace with hearth. Sure would have made things more comfy.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just yesterday my sister's 1 year old son got hurt playing on their fireplace. And, when I go visit them I'm always worried when my 1 year old daughter plays around it. She's very cautious with everything she does but you never know! This would be perfect for her house.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I don't have a fireplace or a house yet but if we end up getting one this would be a lovely product to get. I can see how it would be awesome to have for company or just for aesthetic pleasure. I also think this would make a wonderful gift for someone that is unique as I have never seen anyone with a product like this before. Thanks for the review!

    ReplyDelete
  48. i am finding so many things on these wonderful blogs i wish i would have found them mouths ago!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the look, elegant and classy but user friendly. It would be wonderful to win this.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love that they offer a chenille fabric option, I would pick the sand color.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like the idea of dual functionality in items I purchase for the home. I like that it's a great way to soften the edges of a firpleace for children and I also like that it doubles as attractive extra seating for guests.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't have any little ones, but if I did and if I had a raised hearth this would be a great addition. Of course the main thing is the safety, but I also love that it creates soft seating!

    ReplyDelete
  53. This looks comfy. I wish I had a fireplace in our home now and I would just in case probally have a washable cover on it.

    ReplyDelete
  54. i've been looking at these for quite some time and would LOVE to have one - but we just had twins and are on a super tight budget - saw the contest and we are all keeping our fingers crossed! i hope i did everything correctly with entering :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is an excellent idea to add extra seating to an area without compromising space.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love that this can be custom made to fit your fireplace. It is a beautiful piece of furniture that would add beauty to your room.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I win this great couch, it looks beautiful but I love that it is sturdy enough that people that sit on it cannot feel the bricks below

    ReplyDelete
  58. I do believe you have a a great concern about child safety and I know just have important it is to becareful about ours kids but accidents around they home

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love this idea ~ it is decorative and looks pretty comfortable as well. The safety issue is of course first!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I wish I had enough room in my house to fit one of these in my house.I probally would not have kids on it!

    ReplyDelete
  61. My fingers and toes and still crossed and I am glad to comment on this great post. You describe the product fully and clearly and it makes me want to win it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. We don't have a fireplace in the home we're in now, but we did in the past & it would have totally freaked me out if we had had grandchildren then. Our children were old enough to be cautious on their own. This is a fabulous idea. The only con I can see is this: I may never sleep with my husband again if I was able to lay comfortably in front of the fireplace! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  63. This is awesome! I like that it isn't just the ugly foam like most protective bumpers. Very cool!

    ReplyDelete
  64. The pic of your sister is a fabulous one! I don't have a fireplace hearth like this so I cannot use it, but it looks great. A little costly, but great

    ReplyDelete
  65. I like that it's functional for more than one use. as a safety for the fireplace,and as beautiful seating

    ReplyDelete
  66. This looks like a product that parents and grandparents would love to get as a gift! Safety first!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Don't have a fireplace but this looks like an excellent product for people who do.

  68. I like the look of a fireplace in a living room, or den; but I do not like actually using it as such. I no longer have children at home, nor even young grandchildren to visit; but I do have company, and would love extra seating space. The pictures show this as an attractive product I would be pleased to have in my home.

    ReplyDelete
  69. It's very nice to have the option of customizing your seating space to fit your needs.

    ReplyDelete
  70. It is so hard to keep an eye on the little ones for every second. This would be a great safety addition to any home.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I cannot tell if my last comment was published ~ just to verify that this is a great safety idea for any home.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I wish I would have had this when my kids were young. We also covered our fireplace with blankets, etc to protect little ones from getting hurt on the sharp edges and bricks. This looks so much better and also provides a great seating area!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love how this adds such a nice design to the fireplace. To have it be safe for children and pets is great!

    ReplyDelete
  74. With my toddler son being a little daredevil, this would come in handy if we still had a fireplace.

    ReplyDelete
  75. For some reason kids just love to jump on furniture and run around the house and this couch would prevent them from having an injuiry on the fireplace bricks. Besides it looking beautiful and provide extra seating it is a safety barrier.

    ReplyDelete
  76. What a great idea! So much safer for kids.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I like the idea of Hearth soft...rather than the tradition Hearth hard. I think it's a great idea to have something like this if you have small ones around.

    ReplyDelete
  78. These are so nice! My grandkids love to play on my fireplace hearth and it worrys me that they will get hurt on the rough stone edges.I would love to have one of these it would give me extra seating too.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I do agree with everyone else. The seating at the fireplace gives it a whole new look. Kinda like having an extra couch in the room, but not crowding the room with a big bulky couch. YEA! for great new ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am not in the market at this time for one of these. However, if I ever have the need, I will certainly look to this company.

    ReplyDelete
  81. This is going to be so greatly used! Hope I win. My toddlers really need it too.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Form, Function and Beauty. Can't go wrong with that in any home.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I think this is amazing... the safety features are incredible, but the extra seating really takes it over the top...when I first heard of a cover like this, I thought it would be cheap or tacky...but this looks like a custom made piece of furniture...and really gives the fireplace a chance to be even more of a focal point!

    ReplyDelete
  84. What a great idea! This looks super comfy, and I like the idea of extra seating.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love that adults can sit comfortably and it is a great way to add seating when entertaining. Love the couch, hope I win it.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I love this! I have a fire place and we have the exact same problem! babies are always climbing on it and anything we do to protect them is just ugly!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. The Hearth Soft by jamboo adds an interesting focal point in front of the fireplace.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Kids only take the blink of an eye to get hurt under normal circumstances. It is great to be able to do something so nice and easy to see to their safety.

    ReplyDelete
  89. It is important as parents to do all we can to see to the safety of our children. This is a wonderful product to do just that!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I really like this product. I have always wanted a hearth like this. I like that you can sit in front of the fire comfortably. It seems like it would work great

    ReplyDelete
  91. I love that this is a great feature for your home that adds both decor and safety values!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Great to hide the hearth from little ones jumping/tripping on it. doesn't even resemble a barrier. Looks more like a piece of furniture to the whole set-up.

    ReplyDelete
  93. If I every get to have a home with this type of hearth, this will be a welcome addition! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Very nice to have extra seating as a plus feature of this Hearth Soft lounger.
