Ligne Roset – My First Soho Furniture Sample Sale!

When I went to the Ligne Roset showroom Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 155 Wooster street in Soho, I knew that the sample sale would be starting the next morning through Sunday, December 15, 2013.  There were at least 20 people unloading trucks that were packed from their warehouse for the event.

Items were being moved to accommodate additional pieces on the upper and lower-level sales floor.  Similar to Apple release dates, I learned that Ligne Roset’s loyal customers line up the first morning before the sample sale starts.  Ligne Roset – My First Soho Furniture Sample Sale!
