The Ralph Lauren presentation just wrapped up (spoiler: Kanye was there!), but this weekend, Metropolitan Pavilion will host a sample sale for the brand's home collection that'll probably be nearly as glamorous. Expect decadent furniture, lighting fixtures, objets d'art, pillows, and even antiques and store props, which, if the Fifth Avenue flagship's decor is any indication, could mean anything from giant canoes to zebra ottomans, old-timey motorcycles, and many, many horse paintings.
But just how fancy is this sale? For starters, no children under the age of 12 will be admitted, nor will strollers. Plus, customers are responsible for shipping, so if you're in the market to throw down a couple thousand on a sofa, you might want to bring a van.
February 20th through February 23rd. Friday 12pm to 7pm; Saturday, Sunday 9am to 6pm; Monday 9am to 5pm. 110 West 19th Street.
