Have You Ever Bought a Floor Model?

After waiting three months for Design Within Reach to restock the Coral Pendant that I'd ordered back in late August, I gave up and went down to my local store. After talking with a friendly store manager, he emailed other Bay Area DWR stores to see if we could track down a floor model of the Coral Pendant. Within two hours, he'd called us at home to tell us there was one 20 miles away that I could pick up that afternoon!

Not only was the floor model half price, I also didn't have to assemble it. And, as anyone who's assembled one of these David Trubridge pendants can attest, the assembly alone can take hours.

Elfa shelving and drawer units. I wait until the last possible moment of a Container Store sale and play pathetic. "Oh, no, I guess I could just turn it and that minor nick in the corner that takes another 10% off the 55% off price because it's the floor model is ok..."

It's the only way to go! They're almost always only willing to sell the floor model at the end of the season, so there's a chance that your dream item will be a bit damaged. However, a small bit of damage may mean an incredible discount.

I bought my fridge as a floor model. It was 50% off, which made it even more wonderful. My old one has broken down just when I had no money to replace it. I have to say, I don't like that pendant!! It looks a bit too "industrial" for my taste. But, glad you found it, at half the price!! Maybe I should go to DWR to try to buy a Louis Ghost chair floor model and get 1/2 off!! I really need a few of those chairs.

Yes, a chair from West Elm. We went there to check out the chair for a potential purchase, and ended up buying a floor model that was in a discontinued fabric. It was in excellent condition, especially considering it was uphostered.

Yes I got a lovely lamp from Pottery Barn that was a floor model. It was rather expensive and was $400 off. I also had enough gift cards saved up that it ended up costing me $17.

All the time. We purchased floor model appliances for our kitchen. They were never used and were so much cheaper.
