Most people’s first apartments had floors lined with raw oatmeal, a repurposed Twister mat for a bed, and a showerhead 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 more at both locations of Velocity Art and Design. The outlet store at 426 Yale Ave. is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays 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 decor, 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 an array of artwork, such as earthy, human-brushed Labokoff prints ($28 each) and playful Blow Up wall clocks, spruces up panic rooms and family rooms alike. No matter what guests seek in-store, all of Velocity's staffers are known to remain attentive, inventive, and open to discussions about the world of art and design.
