I’ve long been a fan of Madeline Weinrib area rugs and graphic designs. The collections of pillows and fabrics are fun additions – and now they are all coming to LA for a sample sale! Previous celebrated events took place only in NYC but for the first time a west coast sale will be taking place at HD Buttercup from May 7th-10th.

A range of products including: Carpets, Pillows, Furniture, Fashion, Fabric by the Yard and Accessories will be included in the sale from 40%-70% off.


Additional items included are: one of a kind samples, inspiration materials, off-dye lots merchandise, R&D samples, discontinued collections; accessories including pillows, and one of a kind pieces from Madeline’s travel & inspiration archives; lingerie bags, table linens, and select bespoke clothing pieces; floor coverings; fabric by the yard;
and furniture (mostly chairs.)


The Los Angeles sale will be taking place in store only (no online sales) at:

HD Buttercup at the Helms Bakery, 3225 Helms Avenue, Los Angeles CA 90034 (310)558-8900 May 7th-May 10th

Have to admit, in recent months has become an increasingly “go to” source for me when sourcing for clients. Initially it began with clients emailing me their finds, often with a cringe (in comparison to some of the other great things I was finding elsewhere) but with budgets (& yes, those knock-offs!) – it’s often hard to pass up! Especially with my online design clients, it has become a great resource for those looking to furnish their homes when on a budget!


{Several items seen in the above concept board were sourced from for a living room online design project I designed for a client, young first time homeowners that were looking to furnish their new home on a budget.}

Los Angeles Sales & Events

Posted By Jill-LA | Jun 14, 2011 | 1 Comment | Category: Events, Sales, Shops and Showrooms

For Angelenos, a few upcoming sales and events are taking place, starting this weekend!

This weekend, on Saturday June 18th, Palihouse (as in the hotel, which I blogged about here)  is having it’s own garage sale.

Here are the deets: The sale will be at the Hacienda garage entrance, items include: sofas, tables, chairs, casegoods, headboards, Moroccan lamps, lamp shades, hammocks, and other finds from the Palihouse archives. A DJ will be spinning through the event and coffee is available from the Espresso Bar.

Now, you can really truly have that hotel to room look I featured!

Starting on Friday, June 17th (and running until July 10th), both the Los Angeles and San Francisco HD Buttercup locations are having their half yearly sales with as much as 20-70% off the entire store (sofas, light fixtures, tables etc.).

Happy Shopping!

H.D. Buttercup in Los Angeles will be having a five year anniversary event starting Wednesday, May 5th-Sunday, May 9th.  Five days long to check out all their great finds including sofas, tables, lighting, chairs, artwork, linens, and rugs from Stark Carpet!
