What Makes Us Stand Out

Just like our furniture in your home, we wanted to make sure that we stood out from any other furniture company in Monmouth or Ocean County.

The showroom itself is of modest scale, yet visually pleasing: Stone columns ring the space and frame tall windows (which face the intersection of Manasquan’s thriving town center), drawing the eye to the faux-tin ceiling above. Boutique as the showroom may be, root is delightfully chock-filled with a surprising inventory consisting of weathered woods, painted furniture, comfortable couches and chairs, seaworthy artwork and accessories, natural rugs and way-cool lighting. While there are exceptions, the majority of product is American made.

Our style and inspiration is manifested from this definition in one way or another. The word may appear simple, but it represents much more. We try to communicate the word’s meaning through many of our pieces.

Furthermore, root is a unique shopping experience; here, quality and design are presented with passion and truly personal assistance rendered by Joe Mazzarino. A sense of humor (an absolute essential in interior decoration and design) and an unbridled enthusiasm for your project, be it large or small—are the trademarks of root home décor.  You won’t find the type of service and expertise you will experience with us at any of the other furniture store chains.

If you want to experience the difference and work with someone that will make you and your guests notice the high quality and artistic value of our furniture, then visit us soon!

Our Work

Since its inception, this boutique establishment has presented a uniquely rustic, yet sophisticated contemporary approach to traditional “beach” decor. We specialize in comfortable, American-made upholstery, reclaimed and painted wood finishes as well as a generous selection of iron and stainless steel accent pieces, nautically-inspired art, lighting and accessories, and unique items from around the globe. Root is virtually the only shop of its kind in either Ocean or Monmouth Counties.

We wanted to provide Monmouth and Ocean County with a furniture store that really focuses on quality and style unlike any other store out there. Therefore, you’ll notice that a large majority of our products are made in America. American made products tend to have a higher standard when considering quality and design.

Our work also has a unique inspiration which you’ll recognize the next time you visit us. For instance, we ensure that a sense of humor (an absolute essential in interior decoration and design) and an unbridled enthusiasm for your project, be it large or small—are the trademarks of root home décor.

All of our furniture is inspired by this definition in one way or another. The word may appear simple, but it represents much more. We try to communicate the word’s meaning through many of our pieces.

At root home décor, we don’t feel that our “work” is done after placing the furniture on the showroom floor. Our work also includes professional design advice and ensuring that whichever piece or pieces you bring into your home matches your vision. Visit us soon to experience exactly what we mean!
