Glamorizing Your Home On A Budget in Irvine, California
Deep in the land of tummy tucks, Mercedes, and orange-tiled mini-mansions is a furniture consignment warehouse in an ordinary business park. Inside Ruf, Inc., luxury brands like Baker, Marge Carson, Henkel Harris, and Karges stand jumbled amidst more modest names, all of them presented with remarkable indifference to style, price, or quality. A loft holds bedding, dining ware, and accessories. Consigned from model homes and designer showrooms (and occasionally, even the studios), everything is lightly used and cheap; 50 percent off is minimum; 75 percent off is not uncommon. Which is why the mavens of Orange County society and new couples alike crowd the narrow aisles. What’s here today may well be gone tomorrow. More, though, is always coming.
