The Austin location has seven non-commissioned design associates and a retail market manager. Free design services are available for any project or budget,  including virtual video design appointments.

“We know our Austin store will be well-received because the people here share our passion for  environmental responsibility, sustainability, timeless design and home décor,” Market Manager-Austin Jessica Harrison, said in a release. “This is a vibrant, stimulating city with a thriving economy. We are here to stay; Austin is our new home.”

The Minneapolis-based Top 100 company, which emphasizes sustainable and U.S.-made goods designed exclusively for the brand, first noted plans for the store, its 21st, this past summer.

In the release, Harrison said the Austin showroom supports Room & Board’s growth strategy to expand into markets  where its customer base is strong, as well as introducing the brand to a new population of customers who  value modern, American-made home furnishings. It already has more than 7,700 existing customers, which it previously has said it develops through its other locations and online presence.
