Last Chance to Scoop Up Blu Dot Bargains!

I don’t know exactly why, but this video featuring the One Night Stand Sleeper made me laugh. It’s called “Mr. Squirrel Has a One Night Stand,” and it is NOT a dirty movie about tree rodents, just in case you were worried:

Did you mean to make a Blu Dot purchase when you first saw the sale announcement but just haven’t gotten around to it? Time is running out; this sale ends on November 8th. I for one know I have total commitment phobia when it comes to a major purchase like a sofa, and I secretly hope I’ll find one on sale as a floor sample or something (this never happens to me). So what better time to pick up the Couchoid Long Sofa than the present? This uber-contemporary sofa’s silhouette is sculptural and unexpected, resembling a model one might whittle from a block of styrofoam. The whole thing is very modern art museum chic.

Next the big bargains apply to yet another sculptural piece of furniture, the Stilt Floor Lamp. I love this lamp because it kind of reminds me of those things that came up out of the ground in that Spielberg/Tom Cruise sci-fi movie where Dakota Fanning just screams the whole time. The movie was kind of annoying, but the creatures were way cool. If they were to mate with a Scandinavian Mid-Century Modern lamp, their baby would look like this:

Next on my wishlist is the Knicker Counter Stool. It also comes in chair and bar stool heights. I learned that there is a difference between counter and bar height the hard way, after buying a bunch of bar stools for what was, apparently, a counter, so be sure to pay attention to that or you’ll only have a few inches of clearance for your thighs! Anyhoo, the upholstered Knicker in Chalk looks like it’s sporting a cozy knit sweater from J. Crew:

In Dark Roast upholstery, it takes on more of a modern cabin look, like it would go great with an antler chandelier or a bearskin rug:

In white faux leather, it takes on a sleeker, more contemporary persona, begging for some Carrera marble countertops to nestle under:

So, don’t procrastinate; time is running out to hop on the Blu Dot sale!
