Design Public OutletYeehaw! The DP Outlet is open once again! I know these are sweet words to the eyes of many a Bay Area customer so enjoy it while it lasts…

Here’s the full scoop:

*All items are returned merchandise and are sold “as-is.” The majority of the pieces are like new but if there are any flaws to an item we have made a note about the condition of the piece under the item title.

*All Outlet sales are final. No cancellations, returns, or exchanges on Outlet purchases.

*Products are available for pickup only from our office in San Francisco, CA (see map). You will be given an opportunity during checkout to choose a pickup time. No shipments or shipping arrangements.

Check out all of the mind-boggling sales!

Fire Station Renovation


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

 Who doesn’t love a firehouse? It seems they are truly en fuego right now as a trend.  Perhaps it started with this house, where the Ghostbusters had their headquarters:


Then there was The Real World: Boston, where a charming firehouse was renovated to house seven self-important, immature  strangers.  This was one cool renovation:

SF Sample Sale, Now 70% Off!

Emeco Kong ChairYes, that header is correct: the SF Sunset House Sample Sale is now 70% off.

We only have a smattering of items available, but the stuff that is there is a steal, no doubt. How often do you come across a $1300 Matteo Cashmere Wrap for under $400? Or, an Emeco Kong Chair for under $700? I am not going to even get into the Blu Dot Modulicious Bed.

If you are not in the SF area, I might suggest booking a flight around the date of January 30th (the one and only pick up date). I have heard a few airlines have some pretty smoking deals at the moment. Just kidding (kind of).

Check out what Sample Sale deals you can’t let pass by.

Also, a friendly reminder that this is the LAST weekend to tour the home.

The Sunset Idea House is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The final day to view the home is Sunday, January 27. General admission is $20; $15 for seniors on Fridays. No children younger than 10. The house is located at 3029 25th St, San Francisco, CA 94110. Parking is extremely limited. Free shuttles will be offered from the San Francisco General Hospital parking lot. For information, call (800) 786-7375 or visit the Sunset Web site: Please be courteous to Sunset House neighbors when viewing the home (i.e. do not block driveways, leave a mess, cause a raucous, etc.).
