Minneapolis-based Room & Board is now offering its classic-meets-modern furnishings in a recently renovated building at 14th and T Streets, NW, in the bustling 14th Street corridor. Its mid-June opening followed a painstaking renovation of the historic Taylor Motors Building, once a Ford Model T showroom, by Gensler architects and DC-based Eric Colbert & Associates. Room & Board claims that more than 85 percent of its furniture is manufactured in the U.S. www.roomandboard.com
