A blog on modern living

At Room & Board we are passionate about transforming our communities through relationships with organizations that support art, design and music, which is why we jumped at the opportunity to donate furnishings to Seattle radio station KEXP (90.3 FM)’s new community building. The furnishings were set just in time for the grand opening party where more than 12,000 music lovers visited the space and enjoyed a day of free live music.

KEXP made the move to their new 28,000-square-foot home in the Seattle Center last April, which was designed specifically to “reach more music lovers, break down barriers between listeners and their favorite artists, and make it even easier to share new music and experiences with KEXP Community members all over the world.” The New Home features flexible indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate more performances and events; spaces for musicians to create and energize; and improved equipment to support their work.

Gathering Space:

The spacious new lobby and community gathering space provides over 4,500 square feet for performances, dance parties, classes and lectures, and one-of-a-kind get-togethers for music lovers.

Our Dean sofas (center, back to back) and Streeter floor lamps create a cozy space for performers and music lovers alike to relax.

Live Room & Audience Viewing:

KEXP hosts more than 400 in-studio performances every year. The new live room includes an audience viewing area, with room for 50-75 music lovers.

Artist Lounge:

Designed with musicians in mind, KEXP’s “Artist Oasis” is a welcoming “home away from home” for touring artists with showers, laundry facilities, work stations and a place to nap.

Library:

The new library more than doubles the size of the old one. Listening booths for DJs, work areas for assistants and volunteers, and digital resources to research music from around the globe make this library an artist’s dream.
