The Deal: Designer Danish modern at DK Vogue
Will high-end Danish home store DK Vogue be the latest retail casualty to hit West Hollywood? Store managers are cagey about whether the Beverly Boulevard shop is actually closing (even though “For Lease” signs are up), but price tags on the inventory definitely look like a clearance sale.
Tableware is 50% off, including funky-cool connecting vases by Louise Campbell (now $98) and Monica Ritterband’s glass tea-light holders ($18 for a pair). Clean-lined sofas are all heavily discounted, going for about $3,000 to $5,500, but the real deals are the store’s stackable dining chairs.
A variety of styles by big-name designers from Denmark are as much as 70% off. In my most recent visit, Arne Jacobsen’s timeless Series 7 chairs, originally $600 and up, are now $249 to $399, depending on color and finish. Tom Stepp’s Funk walnut wood chairs are $249 each, down from $850. And Vico Magistretti's lacquered ash Vico Duo dining chairs (originally $860, now $249) come in bright green, pale blue and other fresh colors.
Some of the store’s most iconic items also are on sale, but don’t expect pricing miracles. Four of Verner Panton’s famous Cone chairs in royal blue, red and black are on the floor for $1,299, down from $2,695. And Poul Kjaerholm’s iconic PK 22 lounge chairs are $1,500 to $2,565, down from $2,565 to $5,133.
9020 Beverly Blvd., West Hollywood; (310) 385-8645. Open Monday through Saturday.
