DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The defendants established, prima facie, their entitlement to judgment as a matter of law by demonstrating that the placement of furniture at the site of the subject accident was open and obvious and not inherently dangerous (see Neiderbach v 7-Eleven, Inc., 56 AD3d 632, 633; Gagliardi v Walmart Stores, Inc., 52 AD3d 777; Espinoza v Hemar Supermarket, Inc., 43 AD3d 855; Bernth v King Kullen Grocery Co., Inc., 36 AD3d 844; Cupo v Karfunkel, 1 AD3d 48; Maravalli v Home Depot U.S.A., 266 AD2d 437). In opposition, the plaintiff failed to submit evidence sufficient to raise a triable issue of fact (see Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320).
SKELOS, J.P., SANTUCCI, BALKIN and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
