Regarding this, how far does furniture have to be from baseboard heaters?
Similarly, can you put a bed against a baseboard heater? You shouldn't put your bed against it anyway because they are convection heaters. Give it some space, a foot or two should be fine. It may be warm to the touch. It normally should not be a fire hazard.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you protect furniture from baseboard heaters?

Never put furniture in front of radiators - it will damage the furniture and stop the heat moving around the room. The same goes for curtains.
