Sometimes we get a bit obsessed with clothing and accessories. We don't, however, live in a cardboard box. On occasion we need to take the time to nourish our surroundings with beautiful and inspiring design. Alessi's designs are the perfect intersection between whimsy and functionality.
Until the end of the month both Manhattan's Alessi stores are moving out overstock, discontinued items and floor samples at up to 70% off. We took a peak in at the 60th Street location and found breadboxes reduced 25% to $42, limited edition sugar and creamer set 40% off to $94, limited edition gold vases 50% off or $200 each, most serving trays are 20% off, many serving utensils are 20% to 25% off, dinner flatware 60% off and some funky bud vases were reduced to $25 from $95.
Just be warned: Alessi's most popular designs like the Anna cork screw and popular tea kettles are not on sale. Call ahead if you have something specific in mind.
