Dallas shoppers who like to try out comfy couches and feel plush pillows soon will have a new furniture store to explore. Signs are already up for Room & Board, a popular Minneapolis-based retailer that specializes in contemporary furniture and accessories, which plans to open its first Dallas store this spring.

Although the company has been in business for more than 35 years, with stores in 15 cities across the U.S., the 12,000-square-foot store, at 4524 McKinney Ave., in the bustling Knox-Henderson district marks its first Texas location.

“We recognized Dallas as a viable market after receiving strong demand and positive feedback from our customers,” says Bruce Champeau, president of Room & Board, in a release. “The company has 6,000 customers in the Dallas area and is looking forward to opening a store in this design-centric community.”

The home goods seller boasts modern, relatively affordable living, dining, bedroom, kids', office, and outdoor furniture, plus lighting and rug collections, with 90 percent of its inventory made in America.

A selection of nearly 40 sofas is priced from $999 to $4,999. Prices for more than 40 rugs go from $49 for a 2x3-foot rug made with vegetable fiber to $3,199 for a 9x12-foot wool rug.

Shoppers also can take advantage of free design services, including furniture recommendations and paint suggestions, by non-commissioned design associates.
