Today, Midwest Home editor-in-chief Chris Lee and I ventured out to the Odegard Carpet Sale where we found stacks of elegantly modern hand-knotted carpets in all colors and sizes. While Chris admired an indigo carpet toward the front of the showroom, I found myself drawn to a set of three bronze tables and a modern chaise designed by Paul Mathieu. We were also pleasantly surprised by the unique, silk Aqua Creations accent lanterns. Best of all, we learned that this weekend Odegard is selling its collected samples, overstock, discontinued, and one-of-a-kind rugs, as well as furniture and accessories from its award-winning showrooms, for up to 70% off at its Temporary Sale location: 219 North Second St. in Minneapolis. Every Odegard carpet is Rugmark certified as child-labor free.
