The Furniture Sales I Look Out For Because I Don’t Like Paying Full Price for Things

Depending on the piece, furniture can be quite an investment, but furniture sales make the decision all the more easy

If you’re anything like me, picking a piece of furniture for your home can be a drawn out process. Is it the right style? Will it fit? Will it last? And then, of course, there is the cost. The bigger the piece often means the bigger the price tag, and that’s why I’ll often wait for furniture sales. After all, is there any better feeling than finding a piece you love, and getting it for a discount.

As an interiors editor, my job is not only to know the best furniture to shop, but the best time to shop it. From Memorial Day to Amazon Prime Day, Wayfair's sales and beyond, there is always a furniture sale around the corner. So if you’ve got something that’s been sitting on your wish list for a while — maybe it’s a sofa bed for the spare room or an accent chair that’s more of a want than a need — it can be worthwhile waiting for it to go on sale.

When it comes to markdowns we all know you have to be quick, so to help you navigate the chaos, I’ve found shortcuts to the best furniture sales, noted down the best time of the year to shop for furniture, and shared some of the discounted pieces I’ve currently got my eye on.

What are the best times of year to buy furniture on sale?

Furniture sales often come with big markdowns, so it's well worth your time to make a note in your diary of when the best recurring sale events happen. While the Memorial Day sales are definitely one of our favorites, some other major furniture sales are Amazon Prime Day, which takes place in mid-July, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which happen post-Thanksgiving, the Labor Day sales and the 4th of July sales. While not all exclusively furniture sales, these events throughout the year are all a great opportunity to pick up a piece you've been eyeing off for a discount.

What are the best 4th of July furniture sales?

Independence Day offers another great opportunity to shop furniture sales, with many retailers dropping their prices significantly. You can review the list above for the best sales to shop, but beware: this event doesn't tend to stick around for much longer after July 5th, so it's best to get in quick while stock lasts.

Is Memorial Day a good day for furniture sales?

The Memorial Day sales are a great opportunity to purchase furniture pieces for a fraction of their original price. Not only do retailers subscribing to the sale offer major markdowns, but Memorial Day also marks the beginning of summer, meaning a lot of brands use this sale as an opportunity to clear stock for the new season ahead. With extended sale periods often offered and both in-store and online opportunities, Memorial Day is a great day for sales!

When are the Memorial Day Furniture Sales 2024?

The Memorial Day sales is technically on the last Monday of May every year. As that has already been in 2024, the next date to look out for is Monday, 26th May 2025. Many retailers, however, extend their sale periods well before and after this date, so it's wise to keep a watch for furniture sales relating to Memorial Day all throughout May.
