It’s hard to admit, but interior design aficionados might be even more fashionable than fashion lovers. Interior design is almost like fashion on steroids. The problem is that the most fashionable furniture and home accessories are sooooo expensive. That is, unless you can find a good sample sale.
One of fashion’s favorite textile design experts, Madeline Weinrib is hosting a sample sale at ABC Carpet & Home. The designer’s incredible rugs, pillows and tapestries are discounted up to 80% off.
We passed by the sale a little early and were ‘floored’ by the incredible inventory. We spotted a 2×2 throw pillow for $129 from $550 and another classic cotton version was just $59 from $250, a silk 1×2 throw pillow is $199 from $800. The sale even includes a selection of vintage Moroccan rugs, most of which are 60% off. There are also dozens of runners, which can be used on the table top or floor, starting at $129. (You can see pictures and prices here.)
As for the bigger rugs, there are plenty. A classic cotton 8×11 Echo pattern, in royal blue, is $629 from $2550, an iconic orange 10×14 pink geometric pattern rug is $799 from $3200 and a huge 15×20 (which is great for a loft of Summer home great room) is just $2639 from $10,500. Some of the best finds are rugs that were custom manufactured for clients that never received delivery. We spotted some of these for 80% off.
You won’t want to miss the accessories corner –by the stairs. We spotted dozens of items that are hard to find and not even offered online. A lacquer tray is $400 from $800, cashmere print throws are $800 from $1600, a set of napkins is $38 from $120 and iconic print tunics are $199 from $425.
We suggest home design gurus and brand fans should hit this sale early. Today was just a preview day and it was already buzzing. We know that those with a great eye will snag the best merchandise first. We know we did!
