Best of Boston

2002 Best Furniture, Classic

Roche Bobois

It’s a rare showroom that can be everything to every shopper, but Roche Bobois comes very close. Here you’ll find the true triumvirate of coveted styles: French country, including sumptuous sleigh beds, consoles that morph into dining tables, and beautifully painted dressers; “Les Voyages,” which takes the entire globe as its inspiration; and soft contemporary—a mix of bright shelves, spare bedroom sets, sleek sofas, and slightly aerodynamic tables. The shop carries off its three faces with aplomb, thanks to admirable quality and a savvy, helpful staff.
