While modernist designs often lack spare storage, there's some sales afoot, giving you a chance to stock up on decorative pieces for Christmas 2007 if your space allows. The 4-foot mirrored tree and 3-foot red lit trees are now 50% off. Wire trees and wreaths and tons of other options are also available at CB2, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, and Pier1.
The pick of ornaments up for grabs includes simple color-stripe globes (now $18 for 6) and bead-stripe ornaments. CB2 has an assortment of glass, coiled wire, and beaded ornaments on sale, and Pier1's entire Feliz Navi-Mod collection featuring several color palettes is 50% off.
There's also some finds to put into use right away. Gump's online sale offers a variety of modern pieces like this Michael Ruh vase, where each stem sits in its own green glass pod within the large cylinder. It's now 50% off, $47.50. An owl-shaped mango wood carved stool is a great accent for an eclectic entryway and has the bonus of adding storage (now $95). The Whitney ceramic lamp is a sleek shot of color. CB2, West Elm and Chiasso (where the "RING10" code gets an additional 10% off through 12/30) all have some great offerings that can bring a new, affordable punch to your mid-winter decor. From what I hear, IKEA's got a sale as well.
