Atlanta's most anticipated design sale of the year returns to ADAC from April 25 - 27. This annual ADAC Sample Sale features products from well-known, top-of-the-line manufacturers in a one weekend only sale. In an effort to liquidate end-of-season items, ADAC's participating showrooms will offer up to 80 percent off retail prices on select high-end furnishings to the public.

"In 31 years, the annual ADAC Sample Sale has grown even more popular with customers and showrooms," said Katie Belveal, ADAC General Manager. "Over a dozen showrooms now participate, providing designers and the general public the opportunity to choose from hundreds of high-end pieces at discounted prices and purchase on-site." The first Sample Sale in 1983 included only half a dozen showrooms. Since then ADAC is proud to welcome new showrooms both to ADAC and the Sample Sale. Participants this year will include: August Avery, City Collection Furniture, Brice, Ltd., Holland & Company, Designer Carpets, Go Home, Kay Douglass Interiors, Logan Gardens, Moattar Ltd., Smith Grubbs & Associates, Southern Design Source, Trowbridge and more.

"The ADAC sample sale is a once-a-year event where the general public has an opportunity to purchase items which are unavailable to them at any other time throughout the year," said Chad Salenius of City Collection Furniture. "It also gives showrooms the ability to sell their floor samples and thus bring in the new designs for 2014." Continuing its tradition of giving back to the community, the Sample Sale will benefit a local charity, Dress for Success - Atlanta. Each participating showroom donates special items for the Charity's Silent Auction that takes place during the three-day sale. The Sample Sale will take place in the lower level parking area at ADAC, located at 351 Peachtree Hills Avenue between Peachtree Street and Lindbergh.

The 120,000 sq ft parking area will also include famous Atlanta Food Trucks. Sample Sale hours are 9 a.m.-5p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday.
