The Greek Key Chest from J. Garner Home is just one of the items we hope to see at the sample sale. No guarantees, but we can dream, right?

WHERE: Seattle Design Center

WHAT: Select showrooms at this designer-furniture mecca in Georgetown open their doors to the public, offering special pricing on sample items and floor models. Many of these showrooms are "to the trade" only (meaning you typically need to work with a design professional to purchase any products), so this is a rare chance to shop these exclusive collections.

This year, expect discounts on everything from rugs and textiles to armchairs and lighting fixtures. Participants include Andonian Rugs, Baker Knapp and Tubbs, Designer Furniture Galleries, J. Garner Home, Leflar, MI Corp, and Wiliam and Wayne

WHEN: Saturday, February 22 from 9 to 3
