Spending time at Context is a learning experience. The owners, Jeff Shelley and Pui Panich are informed about their collection and carry the most diverse range of products I've seen at any furniture showroom anywhere. In addition, they are well read, have several very interesting books and hard-to-find catalogs around the store and are endlessly enthusiastic about design.

The collection has classics (Wegner), pieces likely to become classics (Grcic, Morrison) and pieces that expand one's design awareness (Dixon). Context carries furniture, lighting, rugs and other items like filing boxes, trashcans, etc.

My wife and I have bought six Grcic stools and a Cappellini sofa from them and have found their prices to be not only competitive, but excellent. It is a pleasant surprise to find modestly priced pieces that one really wants to own, proving that it isn't discounting product, but knowing how to curate for value that counts when selecting inventory for a store.

In addition, Jeff and Pui are wonderful people and I would recommend a visit to the store on that basis alone.

Pros: Information, Books, Knowledgeable Owners

I think anyone who wants the best in contemporary modern furniture and interior design should visit this store. They carry some of the best furniture lines from Europe not available elsewhere. Most of all, what I liked was the fact the very friendly owners wait on you and are designers and artists themselves. Also, I like their philosophy of buying quality that lasts and represents value. I brought in some photos of my house and furniture and they were able to give me suggestions right away. They know their products and designers. Interestingly, they also have a sense of minimalism, a philosophy that often less is more, and saw one of my problems was I had too much furniture. They told me they strive to carry designers who are able to make a piece of furniture represent it's simplest, most elegant form. All in all, I had a very pleasant shopping experience and will definitely return.

In Short
