Defining Modern Style

How We Define Modern Style

Since 1980, Room & Board has created modern furniture to be beautiful, practical and timeless. To us, modern is a way of living in your home that focuses on simplicity and function.

How Modern Works With Other Designs

We design our own furniture, taking inspiration from enduring design movements of the past. You’ll find pieces inspired by Shaker designs; Scandinavian and Mid-century Modern furniture; Japanese styles; and the American Arts and Crafts movement.
