It only comes around twice a year, and it's happening this weekend. On Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22, the Merchandise Mart Design Center Sample Sale will host its spring event, and it's going to be a biggie. More than 40 top designer showrooms will open their doors to the public for the shopping extravaganza, where you can save up to 70 percent on everything from luxury furniture, fabrics, floor coverings, lighting and antiques from such sources as Anacara Company, North Cape International and Tufenkian Artisan Carpets, to name just a few.
The Sample Sale will be spread out on six floors throughout the sprawling Design Center. If this abundance of awesome home design leaves you feeling overwhelmed, sign up for a complimentary consultation with a design professional, available throughout the Sample Sale. (Call 312-527-7813 to register in advance.)
The Merchandise Mart Sample Sale takes place on Saturday from 10AM to 5PM and on Sunday from 11AM to 3PM. Admission is $10. The Sample Sale will return for its fall appearance Nov. 14-15.
