Say Hello to the Refind Room
Full of conversation pieces (how about a chic table made from wood found in East St. Louis?), and a treasure trove of other previously loved goodies (like a teal leather chair or an end table made from ammo boxes), The Refind Room is the bold solution to typical home interiors. With an eye for the eco-chic, owner Suzanne Woodard stocks The Refind Room with plenty of pre-owned furniture, accent pieces and unique lighting. Antiques and additional curiosities are easy distractions from an otherwise laser-focused shopping experience.
What makes The Refind Room stand out among comparable “previously loved” shops is the expert curation coupled with the highest standard of service. For example, the website (therefindroom.com) is not only continually updated with merchandise imagery, but it also boasts other thoughtful touches like a “Wish List” button patrons can use to submit an item they’ve been searching for, and a timely blog chock-full of decorating tips and personal tidbits from Woodard, whose love of design has taken her from corporate America (as an attorney for retail giant Macy’s) to shopkeeper at The Refind Room. So, was it worth the leap? Woodard says, “It was absolutely, totally worth the leap—I’m loving it. The experience has been really amazing so far because people are so much more supportive, kind and receptive than I ever thought they would be. And then, of course, there’s the search for special and different pieces for the store—that aspect has been so much fun as well. Overall, it’s like living a dream.”
