Each spring, national showroom group ddc launches its annual floor sample sale, offering extensive discounts across the full range of interior categories: high-end European lighting, furniture, objets and accessories at prices slashed up to 70%. In light of the sale’s recurring success, this year ddc is thrilled to inaugurate the ddc Outlet: a brand new NYC location and permanent outlet for discounted floor samples, representing some of the group’s most tantalizing deals.
Between three U.S. flagships and two Minotti sister locations—and with a Molteni partnership in the offing—ddc boasts the largest concentration of high-end, contemporary European furnishings anywhere in the U.S. With their curatorial finger locked on the pulse, every year partners Babak, Siamak, and Danny Hakakian dutifully refresh those offerings. Following Milan’s legendary Salone del Mobile each spring, they perform a sweeping inventory update across locations, which sees a small legion of gorgeous samples removed from the immediate showroom floor, and reduced in price for the annual ddc sample sale.
The sale draws impressive numbers each year, bringing great design within reach for a wide range of new markets. But, given its finite duration, its format is also inherently limiting—the promotion typically runs just shy of one week. Thus, instead, and taking the sale’s place here forward, ddc Outlet will offer the same deep discounts—up to 70% off of names like Minotti, Giorgetti, Moroso, RODA, MDF Italia, Ceccotti, de sede, Driade, Foscarini, Ritzwell, Edra, and myriad others—throughout the year, with regular inventory rotation.
In essence, by setting up a permanent retail home for discounted samples, ddc Outlet extends the life of ddc’s coveted sample sale indefinitely, and opens the opportunity to those beyond the most vigilant deal hunters. In doing so, ddc is able to render great design significantly more accessible. Located on the eleventh floor of East 40th Street—in 7,000 square feet of industrial loft space—the Outlet is now open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm.
