The flagship Crate & Barrel in Highland Village is just a joy to browse and visit. The architectural facade is sleek and modern, with clean lines and minimalist aesthetic. Inside, warm lighting makes for a pleasant browsing experience. Upstairs see the furniture showroom.

Most items boast clean lines and an urban-contemporary twist, setting the merchandise apart from more rustic competitors like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware.

3 month wait? – Excellent selection of furniture. Very good employees who are very helpful. But I ordered my furniture on August 6. It's now October 6 and I've been told not to expect anything before November. This is clearly an institutional problem, not a local problem. The people at the store have been great, but I should not have to wait over 3 months for my living room furniture.
The next problem occurs when they tell you that once the furniture comes in, it will take approximately 2 weeks to deliver it because they "only have 1 truck for the entire city of Houston." Again, not a problem with the people, but a problem with C&B institutionally. I am very disappointed in the way this entire experience has gone.
A Little pricey – I enjoyed the store, they have a very large selection. I just felt the prices were a little too high, you can find some of there items for a lower price in other stores.
