Site Spotlight: Decorator Tag Sale

Ever wonder what designers do with the stuff that clients just can’t stomach? Or extra fabric? Or what if  the designer just ordered wrong? (Hey, it happens.) Decorator Tag Sale lets designers put the goods up for sale, at a discount of course, rather than let it sit taking up space in their showroom or some warehouse.

A search of the site turned up pretty decent pieces from some of my favorite designers, including Amanda Nisbet, Sara Gilbane, and Tori Golub. Other participating designers include John Loecke, Foley & Cox, Timothy Whealon, and Philip Gorrivan. Take a look at my finds:

Chartreuse tufted chair with navy blue trim and gray stained legs, originally $1,800, now $1,000 from Amanda Nisbet.

French birdcage in original pale green paint with zinc tray, originally $1,750, now $1,400 from Tori Golub.
