Room & Board paint

Room & Board is following in the line of other home furnishings retailers (such as Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn) in developing a line of paints that coordinates with its modern furniture and accessories. The Edina-based chain has partnered with Minneapolis-based Valspar for a “curated palette” of interior paints branded Room & Board Colors by Valspar. The collection is available exclusively at Room & Board’s 14 showroom locations nationwide.

The paint-and-primer-in-one paint is zero-VOC, low-odor and quick-drying to a durable, stain-resistant eggshell finish. The color offerings include six neutrals: White, Limestone, Sandstone, Cement, Putty and Charcoal.

New IMS showroom

A new showroom in Minneapolis’ International Market Square — FUSE — features commercial furnishings, fabrics, lighting, wallcoverings, flooring and other design resources for residential uses.

Christine Frisk, ASID and owner of InUnison Design, said with FUSE she can provide residential interior designers, architects and other design professionals with easy access to lines used by the commercial design industry, including Carnegie, DellaRobbia, Vitra and many more.

Like many of the IMS showrooms, FUSE serves trade professionals, but does offer Minneapolis College of Art and Design grad work for sale to the public. FUSE is equal parts showroom and art gallery, featuring paintings, photos and other work by MCAD alumni who graduated more than five years ago and thus aren’t eligible for the annual school sale.
