The Deal: Deep discounts on Danish design at DK Vogue's closeout sale

April 18, 2011 |  7:23 am

Well, there's good news and bad news. Bad news first: After April 28, you'll no longer be able to view six one-of-a-kind reinterpretations of Arne Jacobsen's Series 7 chairs, including the version by London fashion designer Paul Smith, above, decorated in British postage stamps forming a Union Jack. The one-of-a-kind chairs, which have price tags from $3,500 to $20,000, will be taken off the floor at DK Vogue in West Hollywood.

Picture 4 The good news: Everything else must go -- and at greatly reduced prices -- as the Danish design showroom is closing its doors at the end of the month. Marked-down items include floor models of midcentury designs and contemporary furniture from Fritz Hansen and modernist lighting by Louis Poulsen. 

A rare glass version of the iconic Artichoke light, once $42,000, is now $15,000, and Verner Panton's disco-dazzling silver Spiral pendant, right, is knocked down just over 70%, from $1,690 to $499. Hans Wegner daybeds are more than 75% off, with two models selling for $500 and $1,000 each. And there are abundant glass- and laminate-topped coffee and breakfast tables starting at $300 and dining chairs priced from $200.

Quantities are limited and sold on a first-come, first-served basis; California residents must pay sales tax. Through April 28 at DK Vogue, 9020 Beverly Blvd., West Hollywood, (310) 385-8645.
