The Washington Design Center is bringing back its popular Sample Sale to the public on October 1st. At the sale, the general public will have exclusive access to reduced-price high-end and luxury floor samples and discounted furniture and décor.

The sale will feature price reductions up to 75% off floor samples and discontinued items. Showrooms will display design set-ups and featured pieces of furniture from a wide array of participating designers. Some of this year’s featured designers include WILLEMSMITHDC, Century Furniture, Robert Allen | Beacon Hill and Baker. The variety in designers and items will bring a variety to the sale that will please shoppers with many different design tastes.

The Washington Design Center is the largest and most broad resource for high-end, luxury home furnishings and décor. Including some of the most innovative designs and designers, the center is a prime source for timely design ideas and inspiration.
