7 Favorite Finds at Room & Board

The best of the store's modern-classic selection.

While there’s nothing wrong with a good cheap-chic score from the likes of Ikea, sometimes you need a piece that offers a little staying power. That’s where Room & Board comes in. Inspired by design movements of yesteryear—the store’s team counts Bauhaus, midcentury modern, and Shaker styles among its influences—the selection deftly blends clean-lined modernism, organic sophistication, and Scandinavian simplicity. Add in a made-in-America credo and a focus on sustainability, and the result is an exacting collection of home decor that feels of-the-moment and timeless at once. Here, we’ve pinpointed seven of our current favorites at the shop.

1) Hale walnut bed, $1,999; 2) Sharon Montrose Friesian Horse, $299; 3) Hennepin Made silver-leafed glass pendant trio, $1,146; 4) Open End Steel Tray, $79; 5) Case Study planter with walnut stand, $149 to $189; 6) Pierre chair in cowhide, $899; 7) Sabine sofa in Vance indigo, starting at $2,299.
