I love antiquing, thrifting, and small, locally owned showrooms. It’s great to mix and match furniture and accessories for that collected-over-time feel. But if I had to choose only one store to furnish my home—the one that best suits my taste and budget—it would be Room & Board. I like it even better when they’re having a sale. The company has swept up all the floor samples from its Chicago-area stores and brought them to its Oak Brook location, where they’re discounted up to 50 percent. Shop through Sunday. I dig this chair, which is on clearance for $699 on the Web site, but no telling if it’s part of the floor sample sale.
