Smooth Sale-ing: An Editor’s Preview
This would not be the first occasion, nor will it be the last that we pledge our undying affection for HW Home’s Annual Warehouse Sale. Yet this time, dear readers, we’re upping the décor ante. Yesterday, we had the distinct privilege of sneaking inside the temporary double doors before the rest of Colorado’s design savvy bargain hunters. And we’re ever so glad we did.
The warehouse, once home to a now defunct office supply store, was brimming with on-trend, well-priced furniture loveliness. Truth be told, the space looked more inviting than the permanent showrooms of most furniture “superstores.” It was difficult to conceive that these were sale items – every vignette was dressed to the nines and fabrics, silhouettes and styles in no way looked passé.
We loved how the HW team divided the space into departments, making it easy to shop and more importantly, easy to visualize the pieces in our own home. They even created a “danger zone” of one-offs and deeply discounted merchandise. We spotted chic, industrial-inspired barstools for a mere $69 and a bevy of sofas that were priced well under $1,000.
Two of our must-haves? Dwell Studio throw pillows for $30 (originally $100+) and bath towels that belonged in a five-star hotel, for bargain store prices. We also found an array of ikat upholstered pieces – sofas, settees and armchairs all caught our eye. Before leaving, we fell in love with a modern wood grain coffee table that read like a French antique with its rococo lines and curved legs.
The sale officially begins Friday and runs through Monday, but download our special VIP invite and stop by tomorrow (get there early, lines form at the crack of dawn). Added bonus…receive a copy of our brand new issue with every purchase, before it hits newsstands next week (while supplies last, please).
