But this Safavieh hand-knotted rug, which originally retailed for $8000, was marked down to $3000, then $1500, and then finally clearanced at $995. My clients grabbed it. I'm so glad they were the lucky ones! So the lesson is look deep at HomeGoods and look for the big stuff—rugs, furniture. You might get lucky someday.
By the way, remember these chairs? Yup, there was no budget alternative necessary here. My clients loved them, and we ordered them. They're going to live with the new rug—yippee! I can't wait to see this room come together. Furniture should start arriving any week now.
