In a few short months, the New York market will no longer be one singular brick and mortar storefront, but will, in fact, split into two Room & Board locations: Room & Board Chelsea, our new flagship store; and Room & Board Gallery, a new kind of hybrid retail/gallery space, which will showcase Room & Board’s American-made craftsmanship.
As we prepare for this transition, we are manning up, quite literally. In June, we welcomed three new Design Associates into the fold, and this week, six more began their training with us. Having been a part of the interviewing team, it is not only rewarding to see these new Design Associates take up their new roles, but it is also inspiring, and very refreshing, to be a part of their enthusiasm as we delve into our company’s Guiding Principles together. For me it ensures that, even as we grow and expand as a company, the core values from which we sprang will always keep us connected.
