HOUSE: Newburgh + Scavenging

Scavenged Componibili unit.

The weekend scavenger strikes again!

We’d been planning to buy a three-tier Kartell Componibili unit for a while now, but hadn’t yet gotten around to it. It’s a good thing we put it off, because while making a routine trip to the DWR Annex over the weekend, we found one at a huge discount.

It was covered with black scuff marks, but knowing the power of the wonder that is the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (they really are magic, I swear!!), I was certain I could make it look like new again in about 5 minutes. And I did!

The price, you ask? $29. Yes. For those of you keeping track, that’s an 82% discount.

    They had that price on these units at the DWR Warehouse sale outside of Cincinnati this summer. I thought I had to be seeing things! There were some seriously great deals to be had.

    With that angle of photo, it reminds me of the Orgasmatron from “Sleeper”.

    I have just bought two here in the UK for £70 each but I did win the Heals vouchers for where I bought them from so I really got them for free so I was very fortunate!!!
    I have lusted after these little units for years.
