Dallas has some film and TV scene of its own (Prison Break most notably, and Walker, Texas Ranger among others), but nothing to rival New York and Los Angeles. With filming comes sets, and with sets comes set dressing. And when the filming is done, the stuff's got to go somewhere! In New York, Props for Today is the outlet and sadly we're over 1,500 miles away from what's probably a superb warehouse clearance sale. Pieces on the block include chairs from The Devil Wears Prada, The Good Shepherd, The Sopranos, and Saturday Night Live. They will also have a selection of brand new items from top designers including coffee tables, mirrors, and standing candelabras. Floor samples include daybeds, chaise lounges and sectionals for up to 75% off retail.
While I grumble about missing out on modern, star-touched pieces, I'll have to console myself on the local warehouse options: Ligne Roset, Jan Showers, and Scott and Cooner are still good for a time-to-time fix.
