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.

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%!

Brand Spankin’ New: MASH Studios Storage Platform Bed {$100 Giftcard Giveaway}

Do you like what you see above? Me too. This is the MASH studios LAX series storage platform bed. If you’re a fanatic about modern design you’ll not only like this platform bed for it’s simplistic appearance but also love the fact that there are 8 built-in rolling drawers. Say goodbye to scary under-the-bed chaos!

Now, if this were my platform bed, those drawers would be filled with various items. PAJAMAS, duh! My second thought was that every time I put shoes on while getting ready I’m sitting on my bed so I would definitely relocate my sock drawer. For the days I plan to workout at 5am (ha!) I’d have a drawer filled with exercise clothes. Some other items I thought would be helpful to have bedside are extra blankets, medicine and a flashlight. As you can see, this platform bed will free up space in your closet and dresser and help make your life more convenient and organized!

Also, this platform bed can fit a queen size mattress with a little over-hang as seen in the picture, but has a major bonus for all of you leggy-types – it also fits a California King mattress! Of course, then you won’t have the sexy platform surrounding the bed but hey – you can’t have it all!

Each drawer is 22 inches long—that’s 4 drawers on each side that are almost 2 feet long. That’s seriously like having 2 extra dressers worth of storage! You won’t know what to do with so much room!

For all of you design buffs, we have an exclusive bonus for you – the first 10 of these gorgeous storage platform beds that we sell will be signed by the designer himself – making this piece a collectors item!

Go check out the MASH Studios storage platform bed and get one for yourself before Spring cleaning sneaks up on you!

The other day when I was telling you about the Blu Dot sale, I was looking for this great product shot but couldn’t seem to find it. I had forgotten that it was one of the extra shots of the ever-popular Blu Dot Nook Bed. It’s fun contemporary style may just inspire you to put on your favorite gold leotard, feathered fascinator and weird leggings (Spanx?) and jump for joy on your modern bed.

If your dream modern bed happens to have a wood veneer rather than an upholstered one, and/ or you desperately need some extra storage, check out the Blu Dot Modulicious Bed. The full, queen, and king-sized beds offer SIX, count ‘em SIX drawers for storage, while the twin size offers three. This clever bed has modern lines, comes in scrumptious finishes, and has clean modern lines that will help your bedroom reach its Zen goals.

Check out Blu Dot’s modern beds as well as all of their other modern furniture in the Blu Dot Sale.
