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 75% off. We took a peak in at the 60th Street location and ended up with a full delivery worth of modern and playful accessories. The haul included an a tempo citrus basket for $20 from %50, the Philippe Starck Joe Cactus ashtray was $30 from $90 and a Michael Graves water pitcher for $90 from over $300.
For the first time, we found the Anna G corkscrew on sale (yellow only) for $46 from $67. We love giving these "gals" as hostess gifts. It's always a great conversation piece. Popular tea kettles are not on sale. We suggest calling ahead if you have something specific in mind.
