Winter sales are wrapping up at New York furniture and decor stores, but there’s still time to score some extraordinary pieces at discounted prices.
One way to offset the February doldrums is with a fresh injection of color and pattern, both of which are plentiful at Sheherazade on the Lower East Side.
Sheherazade’s Winter Hot Sale features Syrian furniture, Ikat pillows and fabric, ottomans, lighting and rugs at up to 50 percent off through Sunday, February 12.
Owner and Morocco native Rashid Ouassil says that Americans tend to shy away from dark furniture. Cue this bleached walnut dresser with an intricate inlay of mother of pearl. The chest is a reproduction of a traditional design, but it was his idea to bleach the wood.
Ouassil is also a big fan of Turkish towels that he says are uber absorbent. The towels are traditionally all white, but are invigorated with pattern and color in order to be more appealing to Western taste.
These boucherouite “rag rugs”, which originated in the Atlas Mountains, are made of recycled fabric.
The colors are just as bright and vibrant in southern Soho at Property, where all new orders are 20 percent off and floor models are going for up to 60 percent off through Saturday, February 11.
High gloss is the theme at Property.
Not all surfaces are shiny; there is plenty of texture here too. For example, the perfect pillow for one of Ron Mueck’s giants:
Back to glam.
