The ABC Carpet & Home Outlet is opening its warehouse doors for four days only, September 19 through 22. Enjoy an extra 30 percent off all sale prices, for savings of 50 to 80 percent off original prices on all rugs, lighting, furniture, bed and bath and so much more.
This is quite literally a warehouse sale — the outlet is opening up the warehouse doors and allowing people to walk through the space to find more than 4,000 marked-down rugs (many of which have never been shown to the public). They even have tons of remnants available from when the custom carpets were cut.
ABC is the biggest retailer for globally sourced rugs in the U.S., and they’re known for using recycled materials combined with innovative patterns and designs. In fact, they invented recycled sari silk rugs. ABC works with local artisans in remote regions of India to create intricate, handmade one-of-a-kind rugs, which take between six and nine months to construct. ABC can also customize all rugs and cut them to whatever dimensions customers need.
Not sure where to start when it comes to buying rugs? Here are six tips ABC recommends keeping in mind while you’re perusing:
1. When buying for a large living room, create cozy spaces by using smaller rugs to form intimate vignettes.
2. For the bedroom, the rug should extend beyond the bed but stop short of any night stands, creating a soft landing and a defined space.
3. A rug in the dining room should act as a frame, complementing the size and style of the table while adding beauty and texture.
4. When a living-dining room has consistent flooring throughout, framing your dining set with a rug creates a subtle contrast, creating a balance between your eating and relaxing spaces.
5. Choosing a low pile rug — a rug with shorter surface fibers — freshens up an interior without adding an element of heat to the space.
6. But mostly: Break free from preconceived expectations or specific brand names. Go with what you love. There’s something to be said about a piece that captivates you and compels you to come back to it again and again.
The ABC Carpet & Home Outlet is located at 3906 2nd Avenue in Industry City in Sunset Park in Brooklyn. Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
