opening day: miami

Hola Miami!

We’re extremely proud to announce the opening of our 7th store earlier today.

Do you know how many people it takes to open a CB2 store that was built from the ground up? Neither do we—exactly—but we have a pretty good idea.

It takes many hands and a lot of passion. It starts with the architects and construction crew. Inventory control, floor stockers and sales associates not only unload the trucks, they unpack the merchandise and display it. Buyers and store designers make everything look good from product to display details. And finally a PR team gets the word out so we can greet our first and last customer—and everyone in between.

Welcome—we’re thrilled to see you!

the brooklyn flea's "gifted" holiday market

We love a good flea market find—and sharing a good secret—so check out the Brooklyn Flea Market…in Manhattan!

Starting on Black Friday, November 27th, thru December 24th, the pop-up venue will feature 50 vendors—just in time since the market goes on winter hiatus November 22nd.

For more information, including directions and hours, visit brooklynflea.com.

under construction: miami

cb2 miami under construction

It may not look like much more than rebar, hardhats and trucks but at least it’s no longer a swimming pool and soon it’ll be a new CB2! To our future neighbors, we hope you’ll pardon our dust as the construction of our first ground up location is underway. We’re thrilled to enter the South Beach scene and we’re counting the days until we open the orange doors in January at Lincoln Road Mall,1661 Jefferson Avenue.

We’d love to share more photos of the progress so if you happen to pass by, upload them to Flickr, tag them as “CB2” and drop us a note!

CB2 exhibits at dwell on design

In its second year, Dwell on Design was held just weeks before our blog went live—June 26-28th—so we wanted to take the first opportunity to share our participation in this outstanding event. In addition to displaying most of our outdoor furniture and accessories, we gave directions to our new Sunset location and handed out—and ran out of!—reusable canvas totes.

“The West Coast’s Largest Modern Design Event,” conducted by the editors of Dwell magazine and held at the LA Convention Center, the event featured seminars, key-note speakers, and over 175 exhibitors focused on sustainability and innovations for the home. Off-site, self-guided tours of an exclusive collection of must-see homes in the Los Angeles area were also available.

Dwell editors talked with community leaders, builders, designers, artists, architects, craftsmen and entrepreneurs on topics ranging from future-thinking about developing successful design, sustainability, affordability and efficiency, design in the media, urban density, green entrepreneurship, historic preservation, the intersection of architecture and art direction, the growing convergence of design and food, and more.

Curated for a design conscious audience, exhibitors showcased pre-fab home options and smart building materials and ideas for kitchens and baths. Dwell Outdoor inspired with design ideas for outdoor living—including our Resort Sectional shown above—and the latest trend of vertical gardening. The Modern Family area promoted the creativity and originality behind modern design with a multitude of hands-on activities and displays geared towards children of all ages.

What were highlights of the show for you?
