just finished making these. hopefully at an upcoming chair show we can find someone to manufacture
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
also, i need to name it
Amazing job though, I really like it!
Room&Board strikes a nice balance, imo, between DWR and Ikea. They carry some DWR level stuff from third parties (nothing too crazy) but their own label is considerably more reasonable and usually pretty well made.
It's bourgie/yuppie central but hey you gotta know who you are.
R&B has solid stuff. It's just overpriced. I've bought 3-4 items from there and had them for about 4 years now and it's like they are still like new. I'm moving soon, so they definitely fall within the "keeper" stuff. I can see one of the dressers lasting like 50 years easily, no joke.
BUUUUT... will I buy another R&B item? Probably not. I found that there is a middle tier that makes stuff just as nice for about 50-60% of the cost.
Steer clear of C&B, stuff is just marketing and not really well made.
Design Within Reach (DWR) is funny because the stuff is entirely not "within reach". I mean, damn, with that name I was expecting something out of CB2, but then I'm like, "$14,000 for this tiny couch???" Do you know how many shoes that is???
