update: toronto

We look forward to joining Toronto’s vibrant design scene with the opening of CB2 Queen West.  We are thrilled to preserve the heritage of the Big Bop and are working to restore the building in a way that honours its significance. Older buildings bring unique and sometimes unexpected challenges, but CB2 remains committed to this historic location and wonderful neighbourhood.

With this in mind, the opening of CB2 Queen West is slated for early 2012.  We look forward to celebrating with you and will be in touch soon with the Grand Opening details!

opening day: georgetown

On Saturday, April 30th, the newest CB2 store opened in Washington, DC—Georgetown to be exact.

We’re overwhelmed and grateful for the warm welcome—especially by our new four-legged friends. We love our pets, and the many we’ve featured in our catalogs over the years, so all were invited to stay, play, sit…

Thank You to everyone who came by to say hello, join the pillow fights, jump on the bed, and of course wag a tail—especially since a percentage of your purchases benefited the Capital Area Food Bank.

announcing: georgetown

Named after King George II in 1751, and originally a DC industrial port on the Potomac, Georgetown evolved into one of the nation’s most iconic neighborhoods.

Its charm lies in its brick row houses and early Federalist architecture, cobblestone streets, and the prestigious Georgetown University campus—most of which are now protected since the district was listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks.

We’re counting the days and if you are too, follow us on facebook and twitter for the most current information.

our neighborhoods: midtown atlanta

Railroads have played a tremendous role in the life of Atlanta—even its name was shortened from “Atlantica-Pacifica” since just before the Civil War when rails created a link to both oceans. Growth came to the area once it became a major hub, which also made it a strategic target during the war.

Held at Lowe’s Grand Theatre, since demolished, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia de Havilland and Hattie McDaniel attended with producer David O. Selznick.

In 1868 the city became Georgia’s 5th state capital and to promote it as the “New South”—based on a less agricultural economy—The Georgia Institute of Technology was created in 1885 and later, builder of the first supersonic aircarft, the Bell Aircraft Company opened a factory in Marietta.

In 1996, Atlanta hosted the Summer Olympics and today Centennial Olympic Park features concerts and festivals—and the world’s largest Olympic Ring fountain.

Today Atlanta’s the world headquarters for Delta Airlines, AT&T Mobility, Home Depot, UPS, the CDC—moved from New York in 1942 in response to widespread malaria cases in the Southeast—and it’s the birthplace of Coca-Cola and Turner Broadcasting which includes CNN and the Cartoon Network.

While the greater area of Atlanta is home to three Fortune 100 companies, Midtown is the place for arts in the city. Within this 4-square-mile area, it’s home to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Fox Theatre, Woodruff Arts Center, and the High Museum of Art.
