Even though my home is fully furnished and I don’t often think of interiors shopping, I love the Houston Design Center‘s annual Designer Sample Sale. So much to see, so many bargains.

At Scalamandré, the chandelier originally priced at $7,000 and now down to $1,050 appeared to be one of the best buys of the upcoming sale-athon while Johnson Simon Resources will be selling lounge chairs and task seating — discontinued or salesman samples — at 50 percent and more below retail. You’ll find chairs there priced as low as $20 and $50.

The math is simple at Scene One Interiors where everything is marked down by 50 percent. That includes candles, picture frames, lamps, sofas, beds, chests. As the saying goes, everything must go as the showroom prepares for a complete facelift.

On Friday at 11 am, HGTV design star Jamie House will make a presentation on how to work with a design professional. Ramping up the party atmosphere of the day, gourmet food trucks will lift their awnings at 11:30 am and continue food service until 2 pm.

Additional showrooms slashing prices are Bunch & Shoemaker, Charles Ray & Associates, Charlotte Nail Antiques, Lighting Treasures, Pride of Persia Rug Co., Postmodern Traditions and Terri Pugh Studio.
