Summer Sale Must-Haves

Summer shopping

Get your shopping mojo ready — it’s summer sale time! Maybe it’s the economy, maybe it’s the cool weather, but retailers are itching to move some serious merchandise and get you in their doors. So c’mon — let’s sniff out some deals, shall we?

Restoration Hardware — known for classic style and stellar craftsmanship, has a little summer gift for us: the Pearse Hutch.

Pearse Hutch - Restoration Hardware

Most rooms I’ve seen could use some soaring height from a piece like this. Think of all that storage and display, all housed with such solid stature! On sale now for $700 USD.

Ladderback chairs from West Elm

Perfect for pairing with the Pearse Hutch are these understated Shaker-esque dining chairs from West Elm. The Ladderback Chairs are breathtaking in their simplicity and have all the House & Home editors abuzz. Pick ‘em up for $160 USD.

Seaport Dinnerware - Crate & Barrel

Now that you’ve got some nice dining chairs to sit on, you need something pretty to eat off. Enter Seaport Dinnerware from Crate & Barrel. These stylish puppies will elevate your food to new heights with crisp circles in blue and white for only $1.95 to $2.50 USD!

In the living room, try mixing up the tired old sofa plus loveseat combo by swapping in a pair of airy armchairs for that loveseat.

Empire Parsons Upholstered Armchair - Restoration Hardware

Restoration Hardware comes to the rescue again with the Empire Parsons Upholstered Armchair. Great for dining, these chairs can also be used in a living room — even just as occasional seating, or cosied up to a fireplace. Grab them now from $230 USD.

Plainweave Hyacinth Pillows - West Elm

If that’s not enough seating for you, throw a couple of these gorgeous Plainweave Hyacinth Pillows on the floor from West Elm. I love a good floor cushion and these natural beauties add some summery island flair, don’t you think? On sale for $60 USD.

Trudie Table Lamp - Crate & Barrel

As you know, I’m always a stickler for good lighting. I spied this positively posh-looking table lamp at Crate & Barrel, called the Trudie Table Lamp. Love that taupe-y colour and LOVE that bulbous finial-like profile! They’re a steal for $100 USD.
