Here’s an email from yesterday’s inbox that stood out like an (orbit) light amid the daily dreck: The Future Perfect, the at times overly clever, but always impeccably-curated design store in Williamsburg is having a WAREHOUSE SALE! For the first time ever, the snobatorium is taking 20 to 90 percent off slightly injured pieces from Moroso, Vitra, Droog, Kartell, Alessi and more. (If these names mean nothing to you, consider yourself lucky!) We quoteth the email: “The Future Perfect has been open over six years and this is the first time we’ve cleaned up and cleared out the warehouse of all of those amazing pieces that just weren’t 100% perfect. The deals are huge. Prices start at $5. This sale is in our Brooklyn location only. All sale items are FINAL SALE.” Bring your elbows (but not your kids’ elbows) to fend off the army of deposed Domino staffers, local furniture makers and budget-Brooklyn web site editors.
The Future Perfect, September 18 to 22, noon to 7 each day, 115 N. 6th St., (718) 599-6278.
