Rats!!! Seems like I am missing all of the good sales lately due to being out of town. First it was the Herend warehouse sale, and now it's the twice-yearly Sample Sale at the Washington Design Center. Open to the trade October 8-9, and open to the public on October 10th. If you are in the DC area I'd highly suggest stopping by- they have some amazing stuff at the Design Center! If I were around I would be there...I'd love to hear a report back from anyone who goes!
I can't speak for what's being offered at the sale, but here's a peek at some of the offerings at the Design Center:
Brunschwig & Fils
Robert Allen Beacon Hill
