We have a lot of really good sales going on at Design Public right now and some of them are ending soon. While you’re sitting with your feet up, playing around with your tablet and watching the big game this weekend (I know you parents are like “yeah right, as if that ever happens!”) make sure to check out all of the items you can save on. It’s a great way to get your Christmas shopping rolling ahead of schedule and save money while doing it.

Ending November 10: Blu Dot 20% Off Sale


Cerno Silva Table Lamp

November 15: Select Items from Cerno up to 10% Off Sale

Also, there is always an ever-changing inventory of stock in the Design Public Outlet. These are returns that are discounted for reasons like “opened box” or  the plastic wrap has been opened. In fact, almost every item I’ve purchased here came from the Outlet, because I watch it like a hawk! The outlet does not give you time to dilly-dally around, there is usually only one of each item shown, but if you’re sure you want something, get it while you can, like this Thomas Paul Flax Pine 22″ Pillow in Cocoa. I love that this is business in the front, party in the back (or vice-versa? you decide):

Around the Web This Week

What a week! Personally I ruined my fall back extra hour of sleep by staying up late for election results and speeches and never caught back up; it’s like a week-long political hangover and I’m just glad there aren’t 6 billion dollars worth of annoying ads assaulting us anymore. It’s been fun to think about other things; here are a few fun virtual design stops I’ve made this week.

First, let’s get serious. Victims of Hurricane Sandy need help. A lot of helpful tips have been posted all over the web this week; I’m finding first-hand accounts from friends on Facebook have some of the most useful information. Bottom line, these people don’t need your worn-out clothing right now, what they do need includes warm outerwear (coats, scarves, mittens, hats, wool socks, etc.), cash, hand sanitizer, batteries, wipes, cans of soup and can openers, diapers, warm blankets, power cords and more. An easy way to help is to text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Another charity that is doing great work and makes it easy to donate online is Family-to-Family.

If you need to lighten your mood, I highly recommend a viewing of Moonrise Kingdom from the comfort of your living room. If you’ve already checked out Wes Anderson’s latest visual feast but can’t get enough, check out the behind the scenes tours, particularly Bill Murray’s guided set tour.

I loved this post from Tablet about great spots for what they call “the annual man trip” but I have decided to call mancations, dudescursions and/or bro-jurns. While I’m not a man and I don’t really care to go fishing or smoke cigars, I would happily cozy up in any of these awesome spots around the world.

I finally had time to sit down and savor the latest issue of Anthology magazine. The theme is Rhythm and Hues and it’s a great look at the homes of music-industry types. I love that during a time when so many home glossies were going out of business, this talented group had the guts create a fresh and original print magazine. I treat each one like I would a book, and they will never be making their way to my recycling bin.

By the way, if you got too caught up in the fray and forgot to shop our Blu Dot sale, don’t fret. It’s been extended through November 19th. Click here to start browsing and saving.

A New Idea for a Tough Economy: The Blu Dot Swap Meet

Becky

We love to keep track of all of the creative things one of our favorite and original Design Public vendors Blu Dot is up to. For the next few days (through March 11)  you can catch them at their creative Blu Dot Swap Meet. Bid on trading services, collections, and “whatnot” for pieces of Blu Dot furniture. While for selfish purposes, we’d rather you just buy them from us, we love this idea so much we’re going to pass the info along to you.

Here are the Deets:

Are you a fan of modern furniture but not so much a fan of money? At the Blu Dot Swap Meet, you can trade your amazing talents or odd collections into your very own piece of Blu Dot.

No cash? Who cares! Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick out any Blu Dot item you want. Come up with an interesting offer (collections, creations, talents, taxidermy, etc.) and upload it to this site between February 28 – March 11, 2011. (If you submit a video, keep it under five minutes.)
  2. Check this site throughout the period to see the status of your bid. Blu Dot may like it enough to swap, or may want you to up the ante.
  3. If your bid becomes a successful swap, you will be additionally notified via email.

PLEASE NOTE: Sorry- no minors allowed. One bid per piece of Blu Dot furniture. Blu Dot will not accept human babies, “self love” videos, and/or mean/inappropriate things. In other words, be creative but don’t be stupid.
