Room & Board Finds

Written By:

Last week I took a little bus trip down to San Francisco's Design District to have a peek at what's new, and fairly new, from mod furniture purveyor Room & Board. I met up with Joe Darling who gave me the tour of the rather massive, three-floor showroom, and walked me through the latest Room & Board has to offer. In addition to their own designs, I came across a handful of beloved objects from the leading lights of furniture design, making the whole affair rather a nice tour through the present state of design and decor. Here's my curated look at the highlights.

Elbow Chair


This Hans J. Wegner design was originally created in 1956 and released by Carl Hansen and Son in 2005. The chair is stackable, and suitable as either a dining or a desk chair. The seat of this chair is made of molded veneer, and is available upholstered in fabric or leather.

Solis Pendant


Designer Carmine Deganello has created lighting with drama. Solis is as much sculpture as lamp. The shade is created with ribbons of fabric that cast beautiful patterns. The included hardware allows you to mount it as either a pendant or wall sconce.
