Crate & Barrel is really a one stop shop for all sorts of housewares, everything from dishes to cookware to decorative items. This large store at the Stanford Shopping Center also carries their line of furniture which is surprisingly well made and reasonable priced. The showroom is large and open and yo have the opportunity to take your time looking and trying out chairs and sofas. Most items are custom ordered but they do carry several things you can get rather quickly. We bought a beautiful sofa that was delivered within a week. The staff is very friendly and they followed up after delivery to ensure things went well and that we were enjoying our purchase.
