Gilt Groupe Expands Home Selection

If you’ve outgrown thrift store couches and dollar store home decor but don’t want to pay full price for fancy furnishings, today’s your lucky day. Gilt Groupe, the wonderfully addictive shopping site, is expanding its Gilt Home offerings to 15 sales per week from more than 200 brands, including Cuisinart, Ligne Roset, and Missoni Home. Prices will be low — up to 70 percent off retail — but since everything, from furniture to art, is for sale, you’ll probably end up spending more than you would on a trip to Ikea. For those of us who don’t have room for another armchair, smaller accessories and gourmet food are for sale, too, and I can attest that this stuff makes for great gifts — my mom got a set of candles from Gilt for Mother’s Day.
