Room and Board

Posted on | October 3, 2005 | Comments Off on Room and Board

Buying your first adult couch is a daunting task. What if I hate it 2 years? What if I make a safe choice and end up with this boring conservative slug? What if it gets stained? What if the couch is ugly but comfortable or design envious but hard as a board?

After 2 months of searching, 5 tanks of gas, 10 train tickets to New York, and about 4 fights with my boyfriend to just pick one. I have found my love!

Room and Board was a great store I found in Soho. Think of Room and Board as the cooler sister to Crate and Barrel. Majority of the showroom has hip mid-century modern pieces mixed in with their signature Room and Board line.

The Modern 88 “ Sofa was a great choice for me. The basic shape, deep seats, square arms, and fluffy pillows met all my requirements. I choose a chocolate brown velvet upholstery, which upgraded the look and gave the basic shape some sophisticated styling.

Room and Board was great because there was not a huge mark –up for choosing custom upholstery. My chocolate velvet was considered a high-end fabric. In the end it only increased the overall price by $100. I also received 4 throw pillows for no additional cost.

The price was reasonable. The final cost for my purchase was $1600 with tax, delivery, and scotch guard.
