It only happens twice a year — Vitra is on sale at Design Public. Save 15% on iconic modern classics now through October 22nd 2015. Here is just a small handful of the wonderful products that add a playful feeling to modern design.Vitra Eames Elephant. Vitra’s got something for all ages. Charles and Ray Eames designed this happy little elephant back in 1945 but it was never mass produced. Vitra has stepped in and made their design come to life in plastic that can stand up to being left outdoors.
Vitra Eames House Bird. This classic little folk-art guy has been a symbol of the great taste and style of Charles and Ray Eames for decades.
George Nelson Clocks. No mid-century modern wall was complete without one of these playful and functional pieces keeping time.
Uten Silo. Whether you need to corral you office supplies, crafting materials or bathroom stuff, designer Dorothee Becker’s Uten Silo has you covered, right within reach on the wall.
Vitra Kast Storage. This modular color-blocked composition floats atop its metal legs. Designer Maarten Van Severen designed several versions — this serves as a low console, perfect to use for a TV. This two-tiered version makes a great sideboard. The tallest version is a shelf/cabinet unit.
Verner Panton Cone Chair. A sale is the best time to pick up that iconic work of art you have been looking for. This eclectic classic plays with geometry and color. Of course, if you’re not into the cone, there’s always …
The Vitra New Panton Chair. The wide variety of colors and durable polypropylene make this a sculptural chair a versatile piece that works as well in an elegant dining room as it does in a playroom.
Vitra Cork Stool. Jasper Morrison’s simple stools add a big dash of light texture to any room as a side table, nightstand or coffee table.
So you’ve got these an over 100 other options to save on now. The catch: you have to hurry! This only happens twice per year and the sale ends October 22nd.

Sometimes I forget how much I love getting a package from Design Public. Yesterday I received my Thomas Paul Zebra Canvas Pillow in Java and I could not be more thrilled. I scored it through our outlet, and the only sacrifice I had to make was that the box had been opened. Big whoop.
By the way, I just had that door installed last week and it still needs to be painted and I need to get some hardware that is not bottom of the barrel, so don’t judge! At least there is no longer a breeze coming straight through the old hollow bungalow door from the ’40s that it replaced.
Anyway, There are lots of great scores to be had in the Design Public Outlet. Right now we’re having a blowout. These items are samples and returns. They are “as-is” and all sales are final, but the most common condition granting the big discounts is “Opened Box.” Again, big whoop. In return for these stipulations, items are marked 40-80% down right now for our big blowout. You can find just about anything from bedding to barstools, lighting to area rugs. I’m eyeing this phone by Jaspar Morrison:
and this DwellStudio Home Gates Rug:
So if you like them too and want the score, you’d better hurry up and make your order before I do!
By the way, if you are jealous of my zebra pillow, you can still order it through Design Public by clicking on the picture below:

People, we’re having a sale on all things Vitra for the next week (through Oct. 18, 2012). In honor of that, let’s take a look at some of Vitra’s iconic products.
Vitra produces George Nelson’s mid-century modern clock designs. This is the Sunburst Clock, but there is a slew of diverse designs to choose from.
These are Panton Chairs, also known as “S Chairs” – designed by Vernor Panton back in the sixties. They come in lots of yummy colors. If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on some of these, do it this week while you can save 15%.
In addition to the cutest product shot ever, we have the Eames Elephant. The prototype was designed by Charles and Ray Eames back in 1945, and was rendered in plywood. Vitra actually put it into production over 60 years later, this time in polypropylene.
This is Jasper Morrison’s Cork Stool. There are three different shapes to choose from. I like them because they are so versatile – you can tuck them underneath a console table as extra seating in a tight space, use them to hold a table lamp and cocktails as a side table, or just enjoy them as sculpture.
Sori Yanagi’s designed this Butterfly Stool in 1954. I feel calmer just looking at it.
This is a thick composition of Vitra’s Algue. These are plastic pieces that snap together to form anything from small sculptural wall hangings to thick, vine-like screens.
Finally, take a virtual visit to Vitra’s campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany. My favorite building is Vitrahaus and Lounge Chair Atelier by Herzog & de Meuron, which received a ton of buzz when it first went up back in 2010.
