Most people’s first apartments had floors lined with raw oatmeal, a re-purposed Twister mat for a bed, and a showerhead that intermittently drizzled viscous, jet-black fluid and liquid police sirens. Pick up other, more practical pad padding with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of housewares, artwork, and more at Velocity Art & Design in South Lake Union. This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only.
Velocity Art & Design, an aesthetically oriented emporium, provides visitors with a range of eccentric home essentials, including jewelry, lamps, ceramics, books, and other eye-pleasing wonders capable of turning houses into homes into at-home galleries. The artfully designed Ferm Living Owl Kids Apron ($34.25) brings whimsy to breakfast prep, and an array of artwork, such as earthy, human-brushed Labokoff prints ($28 each) and playful Urbancase Camera Candles ($30 each), spruce up any space. Beyond aesthetic wonders, Velocity also carries many curiously innovative items such as the patented Nanda Clocky alarm clock ($50), which rolls away upon wake-up call, forcing snooze-button smashers to stay punctual, active, and suspicious of all autonomous machines.
No matter what guests seek in-store, all of Velocity's staffers are known to remain attentive, inventive, and open to discussions about the engaging world of art and design. Stop through and chat them up during their generous hours of operation, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. daily, and find out why form precedes function and why that line of reasoning still fails to disprove gravity.
Products from Velocity Art & Design are frequently featured in press such as the New York Times, the knot, InStyle, Food & Wine, and Martha Stewart Living. NWsource shopping columnist Alison Brownrigg has talked about how much she enjoys the store. More than 2,300 Facebookers are fans of the business. CityVoters give it an average of five stars, and Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars:
- I love to visit Velocity Art and Design and longingly peruse their inventory of fabulous furniture and accessories for the home. I'm a sucker for interior design stores and they're one of my favorites. – Alison Brownrigg, NWsource
