So, the Kasala Outlet moved to just behind the Sodo Starbucks and Krispy Kreme (really, drive between the two buildings, take a right down the alley, and on your left is a tan building with the Kasala logo on it).
I was skeptical when I came in...maybe I wouldn't find anything for someone like me. And by me, I mean someone looking to furnish my apartment with functional modern pieces that clock in under $50 each. And maybe something to "splurge" on in the, uh, $200 range. By range I mean under $200.
Lucky me, I was in the right place. Which is not to say that the Outlet is populated by tons of fab-u pieces under $50. It just means, I was in the right place at the right time. I picked up a cool, very comfortable, and otherwise VERY expensive chair of great construction. Except that the swivel base was a little jiggly. I bought it for $50. If I told you the retail, you'd say, "NOOOOO! You got THAT chair for $50??!!?!!?! NOOOOO!"
Yes. I got it for $50.
Next: Two silver barstools that normally retail in the hundreds of dollars. Minor cracks. Fully functional. $49 each. Next, lighting. Gorgeous 3-lantern lighting $199. One modern red lighting piece: $35, a silver modern table lamp: $14.
Other items like really gorgeous couches were a steal at 1/2 price, sure, they're $1,299 but they're the best couch you're gonna find for $1,299. Other fun items include reasonably priced ottomans that double as side tables (the top flips open to reveal storage and a hard table-top) for $99.
Also, they deliver for $75, but you may have to schedule WAY out.
Worth noting, I went back a couple times over a week to buy/pick up stuff and their staff remembered my name, was very nice, and very helpful. Dorian, on staff, is great and a lot of fun.
When I want furniture again, they're the first place I'll go. My apartment looks incredible.
