Shopping With Room & Board
Every person working in our stores and at our toll-free number is an expert Design Associate ready to help you create your ideal home. With first-hand product knowledge and a passion for design, our Design Associates will help you make choices that meet your needs and reflect your style. We know that selecting furniture for your home is very personal. We don't want you to feel pressured to make a purchase—that's why our Design Associates don't work on commission.
Most of our products are designed by, or manufactured exclusively for, Room & Board. However, we sell certain pieces by designers or companies like Pablo and Artemide® who share our passion for well made, beautiful furniture and accessories. In the unlikely event another retailer should offer a lower price on any of these items, we'll gladly match it.

Furniture Design and Construction
We design nearly all of our own products and then partner with small, family-owned companies around the U.S. to make our furniture and accessories. More than 90% of our products are manufactured in America using quality U.S. and imported materials. We believe this approach allows us to bring you the best craftsmanship and fastest delivery with the least environmental impact.
We offer many ways to personalize or create your own furniture. For example, you can select from a wide variety of top materials for our tables, desks, nightstands and more. You can also create personalized cabinets and bookcases handcrafted to your measurements, and you can design your own sectional. Learn more
Our mattresses offer superior comfort and support without requiring a box spring. The result is a cleaner profile and a better night's sleep. For these reasons, we design all of our beds to accommodate a mattress only.
Many of our wood furnishings feature an oil-and-wax finish. Oil penetrates wood to enhance its natural color and grain pattern while wax seals and protects. We recommend applying Room & Board Satin Wax at least once a year to furniture with this type of finish. Satin Wax can be purchased online, in our stores or by calling 800.301.9720.
Responsibility and Reputation
Our goal is to give you an outstanding shopping experience every step of the way. We stand behind the quality of our products and the service we provide. If you're not satisfied with your purchase or any part of your experience, just let us know.
We don't mark prices up only to mark them down and call it a "sale." We work directly with our manufacturing partners to bring you the best quality at the lowest possible price, every day. Discontinued items are offered in limited quantities at clearance prices. We carry a small number of authentic, licensed items from companies like Pablo and Humanscale. In the unlikely event another retailer offers a lower price on any of these items, we will gladly match it.
We've supported American artisans and manufacturers since founding our company in 1980. We partner with small, family-owned companies that share our passion for the art of American furniture making and our dedication to sustainability. More than 90% of our products are made in America from quality U.S. and imported materials. Learn more
We believe timeless, well-crafted furniture is an investment in the future of your home and the health of the planet. When you choose furniture designed and built to last, you don't have to worry about it breaking or going out of style. That means less waste, less energy used to build more furniture, and more money in your pocket. Learn more
