Furniture store makes a home in Kenwood Collection – Cincinnati.com
The Kenwood Collection is filling up and the newest tenant to call the space home is Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, a high-end furniture retailer.
The two-story, 1,000-square-foot space is now open and will celebrate its grand opening in May.
The clean, modern design of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is inspired by mid-century and â70s modern designs. Co-founder and PresidentÂ Bob Williams said they design pieces with âthe same warm feeling youâd get at grandmaâs as a kid.”
To take the stress out of shopping, the company stocks the majority of its floor merchandise and allows customers to custom-order pieces that are delivered in eight weeks. There are four ordering options; special order allows customers to choose from more than over 200 frame styles and 300 fabric and leather options.
âWe wanted to plant our flag in Ohio,â said co-founder and chairman Mitchell Gold. âAn interesting revival is underway in Cincinnati. The city is experiencing a renaissance and we wanted to be a part of it. Weâre looking forward to showcasing our style leadership position in this vibrant, growing, city and presenting our brand in a big way.â
According toÂ Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, 80 percent of the company’s sales are on products made in America.
The store features large windows, soft white walls and two styles of porcelain floors to create different moods in Crema tile and a walnut wood tile. The different styles and setting are personally by Gold and Williams to show customers how to integrate eclectic styles of furniture. The store is also dog-friendly, so man’s best friend can help pick out a dog bed that coordinates with the company’s sofas.
âHaving this expansive space to showcase the majority of our product line will let consumers really experience our way of living and our style aesthetic,â Williams said.Â âWe know buying furniture can be an anxiety-ridden purchase, and we want everyone who walks through those doors to feel welcome, comfortable and very well taken care of.â
“The Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams design philosophy is based on making comfort the priority forÂ look, feel and valueÂ and mixing unexpected pieces to give each setting a unique, modern twist,” a statement said.
Gold and Williams started their company in 1989 with $60,000 in rural North Carolina. They now have $150 million in sales and over 750 employees, according to the company.
The Cincinnati location, along with one from Fort Worth are the latest “Signature Stores” for the brand. There are 14 other locations in the United States and international locations in Mexico City, Puerto Rico, Montreal and Toronto.
