The brick-and-mortar Wayfair location will be one of the largest home and furniture stores in the country. In addition to home goods, the store will also feature an onsite restaurant called The Porch. 

The in-person location will feature all of the same brands and items that consumers have come to find on Wayfair’s website: Wayfair, AllModern, Birch Lane, Joss & Main, Perigold, and Wayfair Professional.

Some of the features of the store also include: a mattress selection, a market square full of textiles and decor, and a design studio that offers free advice and inspiration from Wayfair’s design experts.
