We popped into West Elm on the way home from work yesterday to discover that they were in the midst of transitioning the store displays from the winter to spring line. This meant that there were some floor model items up for grabs, which prompted us to think more about floor model shopping. Do you have any tips for best time of year or favorite stores for floor model shopping? What's your biggest floor model coup? Last night we scored this 6' round $300 Flokati rug for...$50! You probably don't need us to do the math for you but we're going to anyway because it feels so good to say that we saved $250! Floor models on sale are also fun because they're often discontinued items; somehow it feels more satisfying and unique to purchase a mass produced item when it represents the end of a product line era. And in the case of our $50.00 West Elm flokati (which they are no longer selling), it adds immense coziness to our office, where we spend a lot of time for our organize and redesign business.
What kind of floor model deals have you scored? Any other floor model shopping tips?
