Every spring, Room & Board launches a scholarship competition in conjuction with MCAD in which students are asked to design an original piece of furniture that aligns with the Room & Board brand. Winners are awarded a scholarship and the possibility of their piece going into production. This year, both winning designs were selected for manufacture and are now for sale on Room & Board's website.

Current student Brendan Barrett's Baltic Bench Coat Rack is a dual bench and coat rack with a small indentation on the seat to hold keys and other small objects. This sleek design mixes steel and wood to create a modern mix of materials.

Sam Busko ’17 and current student Kiley Friese's Fleming Storage Bench doubles as a cocktail table to provide a minimalist solution for small spaces. A combination of wood, fabric, and steel makes this a versatile design for many different homes.
