The Deal: Environment Furniture's bed promotion
Eco-chic retailer Environment Furniture is offering an interesting promotion through the end of the month: Purchase a bed from any Environment showroom and receive a $500 gift certificate redeemable toward any regularly priced dining room table, coffee table, dresser or upholstered piece of furniture.
Environment's emphasis is on modern furnishings made from reclaimed, recycled or repurposed woods. The Santos platform bed above is composed of Brazilian peroba rosa wood from barns, benches and fences. The mattress floats atop a recessed base of what the company says is responsibly harvested mahogany, and the wide ledge surrounding the mattress allows for a bedside lamp, book or coffee mug. Price: $3,195.
Given $500, I might invest in the simple, organic Beam coffee table, right, also made from peroba rosa. Price: $1,795.
The promotion runs through Aug. 31 and excludes the lower-priced Era collection, sale items, accessories and rugs. It's offered in brick and mortar stores only: 8126 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles, (323) 782-0296; and South Coast Plaza, 3333 Bear St., Suite 225, Costa Mesa, (714) 557-3100. The promotion is not being offered at Environment's outlet store at H.D. Buttercup, 3225 Helms Ave., Los Angeles, (310) 558-8900.
