I just read on Daily Candy that ABC Carpet is having a Madeline Weinrib sample sale right now! I love her and was in desperate need of a new rug, so I dropped everything and headed up there (lower floor of ABC Carpet at 881 Broadway.) Besides the awesome fact that I am pretty sure I saw her there talking with the salespeople and manning a table with candy and water, the sale itself is pretty great! Her textiles consist of great ikat, stripes, and simply designed but effective patterns all in saturated colors. Everything is 40 to 70% off depending. I got a great blue/straw colored striped 6x9 rug for $240! Great big pillows, home accessories, and even a few cute clutches are waiting to be scooped up. So go now, go quickly!
