It’s that time of year — Blu Dot is 20% off now through November 9, 2014! If you’re not familiar with Blu Dot, chances are you’ve seen their work around and just didn’t know it. Two best friends, John Christakos and Maurice Blanks founded the Minnesota company in 1997 and it has taken the design world by storm ever since. Founded on the simple concept that Good Design Is Good, creating pieces that are practical and just plain cool.

If you haven’t checked them out, Blu Dot is one of the best companies to follow on Pinterest, as they apply their discerning eyes to all good design and share their creative collaborations. They also ran a two-week swap meet, where folks could propose trades for their products. Successful fans proposed trading Blu Dot products rendered in cross-stitch, carrying a Rook Table Lamp around Boston for a week and even learning a ukelele song to in turn, dedicate to them.

Plus, their product shots always inspire and awe. This one for their Nook Bed is one of our all-time faves:

Their Strut Tables remain one of the most popular items, whether in coffee table form as seen here, dining room table size or console table:

Here is the Rook Lamp one fan was willing to take everywhere with her for a week. Sounds worth it, but personally, I’d rather just save 20%:

No deer were harmed while photographing this shot, which includes a Strut Dining Table,  a 4-Drawer Shale Credenza, a Delta Rug and a couple of Real Good Chairs in Copper:

The best thing about the philosophy that Good Design Is Good is that these pieces are timeless. They aren’t something yo’ll chuck during a move, but rather, something you’ll hang on to and treasure for decades. Blu Dots pieces slip into not only contemporary and modern rooms; they work with traditional, transitional, collected and rustic rooms too.

You have a few weeks to ponder which pieces you’d like to invest in, but do it while you have a chance to save big.

One of the best things about Loll Designs’ furniture is that while it’s durable enough to stand up to the elements, the pieces look great indoors as well. The Racer Rocker will put you at just the right height for toasting your marshmallows, and with it’s vibrant color options and low height is a great pick for a child’s playroom too.

Perhaps your pooch is craving some style at dinner time — she’ll love being served from a sturdy 1 Quart Pet Bowl.

Last Chance To Save 20% Off Gus*Modern Upholstered Pieces

Just a reminder that our sale on Gus*Modern upholstered pieces is ending soon. So take the weekend to think it over and get your orders in by Sunday (August 17, 2014) at midnight EST. If you haven’t had a chance to glance over the options, here’s a peek at a few of the highlights.

Gus*Modern has great sofa selections, whether you’re looking for a loveseat, full-sized or a sectional. The Jane Loft Bi-Sectional Sofa is very versatile. Its metal base lends it well to a loft, while its tufting lets it fit right in with a more traditional family room.

Speaking of versatile, one of my favorite pieces is an upholstered ottoman. The Gus*Modern Henry Ottoman can serve as coffee table, a footrest and extra seating in a pinch. It also looks great at the end of a bed or in an entryway.

Gus*Modern GT Rocker is a new classic. WIth its simple modern silhouette, it references mid-century style with a contemporary twist. The hard steel base contrasts with the contoured soft upholstered seat and back. It’s a great accent piece for a living room, home office, family room or bedroom.

Gus Modern Carmichael Bed

The Gus Modern Carmichael Bed is clean-lined yet soft. Its wingback headboard nods to traditional style in a contemporary way. It also includes a support system that eliminates the need for a box spring, and its upholstered side rails eliminate the need for a bedskirt.

This is just a tiny sample of all the great modern pieces you can save on through Sunday. So go take a last look and make your decision while you can still save 20%!
