A Visit to Bo Concept

On Friday after work I swung by the Bo Concept store that just opened at Western and Marion and took some photos.

Too bad I they didn’t up earlier because I’m now fully furnished.

In other store opening news, Apartment Therapy blogged the opening of the Henry Built flagship. And if you want a condo already with Henrybuilt already installed check out #430 at the Klee:

    Not sure if you have heard of it, but here in NYC there is a great store called Room and Board. I went there yesterday to get new furniture and it was pretty sweet. Everything seems to be of very high quality, the service was good, and the style is very contemporary without being so forward that it will go out of style quickly.

    I heard that they are thinking of opening up a Seattle store, but I am not entirely sure.

    Nice to see that we will have some new options. Not having to drive down to Tukwila/Renton is a plus.

    Thanks for this post, Matt. I had no idea these places existed. Now I am excited to check them out. I also like Room and Board (online) that someone mentioned earlier. Everyone has such good taste on this blog. hee hee

    Yeah, I’m a big fan of Room and Board. I bought my sofa there!

    Chris, I hope you’re enjoying NYC. I’d love to move there but I’m sure I could only afford a 400 SF “loft”.

    About the townhouse. We walk by it all the time.. There is an old single story commercial building right in front of it. so it is very probably that the wonderful view will only be enjoyable from the rooftop very very soon.

    Too bad, I really like that development

    PS. You can also buy online at Room and Board, so you don’t need to wait for the store to open:)

    BoConcept and the new Henry Built are on opposite corners of the same block… should have just walked a few doors down to check that one out too.

    i wish the price tags were more affordable, but sometimes i guess you have to step up to the plate for great cabinetry and modern designs. although i hear they used to be more affordable… :)

    What a disappointing experience. I just spent $2000+ on a Terni sofa. I thought it looked cool and chic in the store room. But, just days after use, I'm stuck with a sofa that looks like it just did hard duty in some frat house for two years. The 'soft' cushions do not hold their shape, the slip covers fall any which way, and basically, the casual look is reduced to shabby looking. I called the people at BoConcept, and was advised that I need to “work the pillows” each time I sit on the sofa. What a rediculous notion. It's a sofa – you sit on it a dozen times a day. After some pushing from me, they picked up the seat cushions, brought them back to the store, fluffed them up, and laid them out next to the cushions of the floor model, sent me a grainy picture and said….”look, it's no different from what we have”. Just an appauling sense of customer relations. I told them I was unsatisfied, and that I wanted either an exchange for a different sofa model, or my money back. I was blithely told I was only eligible for something like a 40% return on my investment if I had brought the sofa back just a few days after I got it. So, here I am….brand new apartment, some nice furniture, and I'm stuck with this monstrosity of a sofa. Boooo concept for your sucky attitude, poor customer relations and lousy furniture.

    Welcome to buying high end furniture mgalway. You pay through the nose, wait forever for delivery from Europe, and then when it arrives, it's often a disappointment in finish or quality.

    Unfortunately most of the places selling this stuff have lousy customer service as well. DWR is on the way to bankruptcy so European government subsidies must be how Ligne Roset, B&B Italia and others can keep their doors open.

    The kitchen on Fairview really does not look like HenryBuilt. If it is, the installer messed up big time.
