I’ll Tell You This: One Kings Lane is Life Changing.

12 Oct

I talk about One Kings Lane a lot.

For example, I’ll drop it into a conversation to say something like: “I saw the greatest rug yesterday on One Kings Lane – it was $250 and retails for $700. Can you believe it?!”

Almost all of my designer friends know what I’m talking about, but some people look at me like I’m just making up a new store name for fun.  If you don’t know what One Kings Lane is you’re seriously missing out. It’s one of those relatively new discount-designer websites — like Gilt Group and Haute Look are for clothing — except it’s all home decor and accessories.  It’s incredible,  it’s free, and I highly recommend you join yesterday. I believe you even get $15 free for signing up, and that goes a long way when you are getting things at 30%-70% off!  Each sale lasts for a few days and they feature brands like Schumacher, Built NY, Baker, Barbara Barry, Stark, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Sigg, and so many other established furniture, accessory, and knick-knack brands.

To be totally honest as I sing the praises of this website, I know that in the clothing world sometimes things are made specifically for the discount-designer market.  This means that the super steal you just got on se7en jeans via Gilt Group wasn’t as much of a steal after all because those jeans were never even intended to be sold at Saks.   You may be the kind of person who cares about this; I don’t.  In any case,  you’ve been warned.  As far as One Kings Lane goes I have no idea where they source their wares but I can say that many things — like the Archipelago Botanicals candles, for example — are indeed sold at designer retailers.

The reason I bring up OKL now in October is because it’s an amazing site for gifts.  As with most discount sites, it can take a while to ship your merchandise out so planning is crucial if you’re ordering something for a specific occasion.  However, if you stock up on candles, pillows, and some books now you’ll be 100% set come late December.  You’ll mostly find lady-friendly items here, but occasionally there are gadget-centric and food-centric items that scream “husband” or “dad.”

Definitely something for everyone, and at a price much more feasible than expected.
