Most people’s first apartments had floors lined with raw oatmeal, repurposed Twister mats for beds, and showerheads that intermittently drizzled viscous, jet-black fluid and liquid police sirens. Pick up more practical pad padding with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of housewares, artwork, and gifts at Velocity Art and Design's retail and outlet locations. The outlet-store location is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday only. This Groupon may be used toward sale items at either location.
Velocity Art and Design, an aesthetically oriented emporium, provides visitors with a range of eccentric home essentials, including jewelry, lamps, clocks, office décor, and other eye-pleasing wonders capable of turning houses into homes and homes into at-home galleries. The artfully designed Ferm Living owl kids' apron ($34.25) brings whimsy to breakfast prep, and earthy, human-brushed Labokoff prints ($28 each), vibrant Fluf wool punch pillows ($135) and playful Blow Up wall clocks spruce up panic rooms and family rooms alike. No matter what guests seek in-store, Velocity's staffers aim to remain attentive, inventive, and open to discussions about the world of art and design.
