LUSH LIFE: Michael Lassell, features director of Metropolitan Home, believes that these days, luxury isn’t about money – it’s about imagination and attitude. The magazine curated more than 200 photographs from its last five years for the book “Glamour: Making it Modern” ($40, Filipacchi), which editor-in-chief Donna Warner will discuss and sign tonight at the NY Design Center. Expect special-guest appearances from several of the designers featured in the book. 5:30-7PM. More information here.

WHERE AND WEN: Starting tomorrow, one of our very favorite labels gives it up, sample-sale style. Built by Wendy will dramatically slash prices on fall goods at the Williamsburg outpost – expect $400 coats and jackets for men and women at less than half price, and select separates to go for less than $100. September 24-26, Built by Wendy, 46 North 6th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-384-2882.

STEALING HOME: Your apartment just got lucky: The mod Desiron Soho showroom is unloading a backlog of its modern American furniture at unbeatable prices, with some discounts on chairs, couches, tables and more hitting 60% off the original price and dropping to a comfier three-figure tag. 151 Wooster Street; 212-353-2600.
