I'd heard rumblings and rumors, but I was still excited to hear that furniture retailer Room & Board will be setting up shop in University Village! This is one of my favorite places to source beautiful furniture for my clients, and the fact that many of them will now have the option of seeing the pieces in person before purchasing just makes it that much sweeter. Here are just a few of the items I'm loving from Room & Board (all available on their website):
Room & Board specializes in American made furniture with timeless appeal. They carry an extensive collection of mid century modern design as well a beautiful new traditional pieces. The prices are comparable to Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn (often I'm surprised to find that they have a lot of affordable choices, even though I think of them as more expensive than their counterpoints). I can't wait to see the collections in person.
The store will be opening in the fall - you can read the Seattle Times article about it here.
