Score Designer Decor at Worlds Apart

Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 16th 2012 5387 0

Get your designer furniture fix at Worlds Apart, a designer decor outlet store.

World's Away has showrooms in Atlanta, Chicago and Las Angeles, but their public outlet, Worlds Apart, is located in Memphis, right next to the Liberty Bowl.

Designers can shop wholesale at Worlds Away, but anyone can browse the stock at Worlds Apart. It's packed with furniture, light fixtures, home decor and fabric from the company's collections.

When you go, be sure to give yourself some time. The shop is several extremely colorful rooms deep and each one is floor-to-celiling packed. Most of the peices are modern or Internationally-inspired – there are lots of mirrors, prints and laquer. If you go in with an open mind, you may find some pieces that would be great with a little bit of tweaking.

Curtain Fabric at World's Away, Memphis, Tenn.

I was surprised to find several racks of upholstery and curtain fabric, on sale for $10 per yard. They've also got a ton of delightfully retro stackable lucite chairs.

Though Worlds Apart is an outlet, the prices aren't exactly dirt cheap. Items are priced about 20 percent below their wholesale rates. There are bargains to be found though, if you're willing to dig for them.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    Does "Designers can shop wholesale at Worlds Away, but anyone can browse the stock at Worlds Apart." mean that us regular folks can't buy there?? Or do we just call ourselves designers and wing it ;)?

  4. Andrea – it means that you, as a non-designer, can shop at Worlds Apart, their pubilc outlet store.
