Affordably Modern

CB2 is a more affordable and modern sister store to Crate & Barrel. With the goal to appeal to a more urban and possibly younger crowd, they stock their inventory with items that look more expensive than their actual cost and would be a great addition to any loft or apartment set-up. 

Store Location

CB2's Uptown store location in Minneapolis, MN is a perfect fit to the concept of the store. The showroom represents their style of urban and fashionable really well. The sleek polished concrete floors and window-lined walls gives off a loft vibe and their displays are a great resource to find inspiration.

Sleek and Neutral

One of the best features of CB2 is probably their incredible selection of accessories and decorative goods. However, they also have a wide selection of outdoor furniture, bar tables, lighting, rugs, beds, desks, sofas, and small tables. Their sofas and chairs all looked very fashionable and were comfortable to sit on. I noticed that the larger pieces in the store tended to be more neutral colors which looks really sleek and is great if you are hoping to add pops of color and personalize your room by using accessories. Additionally, the desks and tables all seemed well made and durable. 

CB2 also had a pretty great selection of outdoor sofas, chairs, rugs and tables. The items we saw would be perfect for entertaining outside or just lounging around. And they had a range of sizes from full living sets to smaller patio chairs and tables.

Glassware and Accessories 

A really unique feature that CB2 has is hand blown glassware. While not every piece is hand blown, much of it is which adds a really unique backstory and element to the products. Additionally, CB2's glassware, dinnerware, bar-ware, and other small items are reasonably priced. 

Speaking of which, if you are looking to accessorize your home, CB2 is a really great choice for super fashionable and affordable accessories. They have a great selection of mirrors, pillows, vases, picture frames, lighting, and other small decorative items.

The People

The people at CB2 are one of the reasons that the store stood out to me. They operate in a team-based sales setting where they all split commission. This means that there will be no pushy sales associates pressuring you into buying certain items. When we walked in, we were greeted by friendly faces and asked if we could be helped. From that point on there was a very causal vibe that would make CB2 easy to shop at. 

The expertise that comes from a team-based sales group is another perk. By working as a team, they can cross-reference with the other employees and provide the shopper with the highest level of insight possible.

Custom Upholstery and Framing 

Frame and Fabric is a neat customization opportunity that CB2 offers to their customers. There are many items in the store that are available with this customization option and they are labeled by a tag saying "Frame + Fabric". As you may have guessed, it is a customization opportunity specifically for picture frames and upholstered goods. It is a really fantastic way to get personalized customization in your home for a decent price. To order a Frame and Fabric item, you can simply talk with a sales associate about what you would like and they can place the order for you which will be ready in about 9-14 weeks.
