Our current sales are so big, it’s hard to keep track. Don’t let any pieces you’ve been saving up for slip through the cracks. Artek is an modern furnishing brand established by the legendary husband and wife team of Alvar and Aino Aalto, along with art promoter Maire Gullichsen and art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl in 1935. They were way ahead of their time, leading the design pack and creating beautiful modern pieces destined to become icons. Here are some of the modern icons by Artek, currently 15% off at Design Public.  

Artek_stool_60_birch.jpgArtek 60 Stool. Designed in 1933 by the great architect and home furnishings designer Alvar Aalto, this simple stool is a very early example of functional modernism. It’s look is timeless, and it’s also available in the E60 version which has lacquer and linoleum colored top options.


Artek Siena Trays. If you have a lot of design-loving friends, I highly recommend stocking up on a few of these to use as gifts for them. This purchase will be a great bang for your buck.


Artek A330S Golden Bell Lamp. Bring a shiny piece of the fabulous Savoy Restaurant (Helsinki) to your home. Originally designed for the establishment in the 1930s, its elegant form is timeless.


Artek A110 Pendant. If a simpler style and finish is more your bag, try the cylindrical lines of the A110 Pendant. Available in black or white, it has just a hint of bling at the rim that helps bounce the light around.

Artek_69_Chair_birch.jpgArtek Chair 69. A straightforward birch piece, this chair is great for modern dining rooms, farmhouse kitchens or colorful playrooms alike.

Blu Dot Sale! Save 20% Through November 9th

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.
