Big sales: Andrew Martin, Madeline Weinrib and Classic Tile
June gloom won't matter much to those who brighten over home-shopping bargains. It's that time of year when some showrooms begin making space for new collections for fall, traditionally the big season for redecorating. Here's a sampling of sales that are underway or starting this weekend:
Andrew Martin, the high-end contemporary furniture showroom in the Pacific Design Center, pictured at the top of this post, has started a floor-sample sale open to the public 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Friday. Company founder Martin Waller's tables, sofas, chairs and accessories need to be cleared out of the showroom because of upcoming remodeling. A Seine chair, pictured at right, usually retails for $3,555 but is on sale for $995; a Northumbria Library Cabinet, originally $2,995, is reduced to $995. 8687 Melrose Ave., Suite G295, West Hollywood.
Madeline Weinrib makes her West Coast premiere with a pop-up sample sale of her artisanal home accessories from Thursday through Sunday. Her East-meets-West, colorful and graphic aesthetic runs through pillows and rugs as well as one-of-a-kind furniture and fabric. Her 18-inch ikat pillows, like the one pictured here, originally $525, are on sale for $269. Cotton carpets measuring about 3.5 feet by 5.5 feet, originally $375, are on sale for $199. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. 8473 Melrose Place, Los Angeles.
