The BluDot 20 Percent Off Sale
BluDot ’s goal is “to bring good design to as many people as possible,” and that goal just got one-fifth more attainable with the company’s site-wide 20 percent off sale. Three college friends –John Christakos, Charles Lazor and Maurice Blanks – “didn’t like the stuff we could afford and couldn’t afford the stuff we liked” after graduating from college and trying to fill their first homes with eye-catching pieces with limited budgets, so in 1997, they banded together and formed the highly collaborative furniture brand. Blu Dot leans toward modern minimalism with an occasional nod to the 1950s and 60s, always staying as accessible as possible without trivializing its high-end aesthetic. The 20 percent off sale runs through early November 2011 at bludot.com.
