Botanist floor samples

Orange22 made a splash with its Botanist series of benches, end tables and cocktail tables, some with flowers and other motifs cut with water jets onto colorful industrial power-coated aluminum frames. Now the downtown Los Angeles studio is offering a 50% discount on floor samples, including a Flora bench shown here in blue (60 inches wide, 18 inches deep and 19 inches high), originally $1,250, now $625. The Flora end table (26 inches wide, 20 inches deep and 20 inches high) in pink has been marked down to $388.

The Natural series bench, which is covered in a wood veneer, has been reduced from $1,350 to $675; a Natural series cocktail table (50 inches wide, 25 inches deep and 15 inches high), originally $1,550, is now $775. 125 W. 4th St., Suite 102, Los Angeles; (213) 972-9922;

Rustic modern: last chance

Environment Furniture, which maintains showroom space inside the H.D. Buttercup home furnishings emporium and its adjacent annex, is wrapping up a summer sale Sunday. Select floor samples, overstock merchandise and discontinued designs will be 20% to 70% off. The company is perhaps best known for its peroba furniture -- beds, occasional tables, consoles and more made of 100-year-old reclaimed Brazilian wood. 3225 Helms Ave., Los Angeles; (310) 945-5458;
