Don’t you just love the rules of retail? The summer is barely half over in the official sense, yet seasonal clearance items are filling the shelves (and sites) of our favorite retailers. Time to be a savvy shopper! Today we highlight 20 of our favorite summer sale items. Stockpile them as gifts. Buy them for yourself. From furniture and textiles to serving items and decorative accents, we’ve got you covered. Happy shopping!

Furniture Sale Items

Let’s start with the furniture! How often do we put off buying the larger items we really need because of our budget?! These featured furnishings are stylish and fabulously discounted. For example, we’ve had our eye on the Parquetry Nightstand from West Elm since it first appeared. Now that this Deco-style piece has been dramatically reduced to $99, we’re running out of reasons not to buy it!

When a chevron pattern meets mirrored tile, you get a retro-style piece that evokes everything from old Hollywood glamour to edgy ’80s flair. Also from West Elm, this Herringbone Mirror Side Table is basically half off. We like!
