Bob’s Discount Furniture On The Coach's Show

Posted Feb 13, 2013

Bob's Discount Furniture updated the set of the Mike Shanahan Coaches Show with new furnishing. The show experienced high rating this season. Coincidence? Find out for yourself!

In 22 years Bob’s Discount Furniture has grown from one 8,000 square foot store in Newington, Connecticut to forty-two locations along the east coast.

With two new locations joining the three already in the greater-D.C. area, residents have ample opportunity to furnish their homes with the same great deals and the same great styles that their favorite team furnishes their stadium with.

As the Official Furniture Store of the Washington Redskins, Bob’s outfitted FedExField’s Joe Gibbs Club Level with brand new burgundy chairs and high top tables for the 2012 season. 

But they didn’t stop there; the set of the Mike Shanahan Coaches Show was in need of a face lift and what better way to update it than with furniture from Bob’s.

“We were looking for new set pieces for a more comfortable and relaxed look,” said Larry Michael, senior vice president and executive producer of media, as well as one of the hosts of The Mike Shanahan Coach’s Show.

Walking into the Falls Church location was comparable to entering a home furnishing palace, complete with snacks to nibble on while shopping for the perfect addition to your home.

“They treated us like royalty, despite the manager being a Dallas fan,” Michael said with a smile.  “There were a lot of options, so it took a while to pick out new pieces.”

A helpful staff member rearranged floor samples to create the new look and feel for the studio, until the Redskins.comTV staff found the perfect combination.

Previously, The Mike Shanahan Coach’s Show used director’s chairs which made the set look stiff and rigid. Now it is outfitted with three black “Jessica” chairs and a “Matinee” cocktail and end table set.

“It gives more of a comfortable look and feel to the show,” Michael explained, also noting that the show’s ratings were up with the new set.

Whether that was thanks to an NFC East title or how much the fans loved the new furniture, the furniture looks great.

Check out Bob’s Discount Furniture to put assemble your own winning combination today!

You can also check out the new set of the Mike Shanahan Coaches Show online at www.redskins.com, or during the season when it airs at 7:30 PM on Saturday nights.
