Like the idea of winning a grand to spend on Room & Board’s modern-meets-classic furniture line?

This year’s collection features plenty of timeless-yet-current interior trends (including such Open House faves as marble, velvet, and Scandinavian-inspired white and wood pairings, plus texture blending and lots of animal hides) spread out on four full floors of showroom space.

How to win: Head to Room & Board Saturday 11 to 7 or Sunday 11 to 6 to register for the prize.
