There’s arguably no better time to make that big-ticket furniture purchase for your home than on Black Friday, when a bunch of retailers slash prices on hundreds of items like sofas, armchairs, coffee tables, even mattresses. But there’s a lot to sort through. As the Strategist’s de facto home writer, I’ve covered my fair share of Black Friday sales in the décor and furniture space over the years, and I’m here to help you navigate the best deals out there from the brands we trust and know.
Whether you’re looking to refresh your living-room seating situation — or simply zhuzh up your bedroom with a bit of décor — you’ll find savings of up to 40 percent off at Strategist favorites like Article, which makes a sofa that several stylish people own, West Elm, whose velvet duvet cover is a perennial reader favorite, and Hay, whose colorful collection of stackable crates is best in class. (All of these products are on sale, I should add.) I’m in the market for a cozy, comfy reading chair for a corner of my living room, and I’m eyeing Sixpenny’s slipcovered Amelia chair, now 20 percent off.
Below, I’ve alphabetized deals by retailer and prioritized products we’ve written about before — ones recommended by design experts, for example, or that Strategist writers and editors personally vouch for. For even more sales you won’t want to miss, head to our hub of all the best Black Friday deals (so far). And while you’re shopping, don’t forget to check out our holiday gift guide — and sign up for our email newsletter, too. I’m done updating this post for the day, but I’ll be back for more deals on Cyber Monday.
