Why waste your New Year’s resolution promising yourself to fix up your home when you can take care of everything right now, before the new year even begins?
Wayfair’s massive sale is the perfect go-to source to deal with all those details you’ve been meaning to get to: the headboard your cat started using as a scratching post that has been clawed beyond repair; that spot by the sofa that’s desperate for an end table and lamp; the constant challenge of keeping certain spots in your home tamed and organized; the blah room you’ve been meaning to jazz up with a bold throw rug. This may sound like a lot of errands, but it’s really only one virtual trip to Wayfair during this week’s after-Christmas blowout sale. The best part: Shipping and returns are free over $49, otherwise the flat rate is just $4.99.
Here are some of our favorite finds — scoop them up before someone else does!
In feng shui, red is an energetic “fire” color. Want to bring some of that to your bedroom? This delicious tomato-tone headboard could add just the right touch. And just imagine resting your head against it to read before turning in. Total luxury.
A sleek velvet midcentury-inspired piece that’s as comfortable as it is classic, this sofa is a great centerpiece for a minimalist living room or a space with an eclectic mix of decor from different eras. Because it comes from nature, green is a neutral, so it already goes with whatever you have in the room.
Turn a blah space into something special with this beautifully balanced 5×8 rug. Insanely affordable, at 71 percent off, this is the kind of item that can absolutely transform a living room or bedroom. Arty but restrained, it’s the perfect way to bring color into a calm space.
Elegant enough to be the center of attention or subtle enough to play a supporting role, this sturdy glass-and-metal end table is open and airy, so it won’t bulk up a room, which is especially great in small spaces. Use a pair to flank a couch, or add one to a corner that needs a bit of glamour.
Making brilliant use of vertical space, this storage piece has just-right nooks for shoes and bags; a wide lower shelf ideal for an accessories basket (the answer to the question, “Mom, where’s my hat?”); and a place to sit and slip off messy boots. Both rugged and industrial, the unit brings a sense of order and style to a necessarily functional spot, without demanding a lot of real estate.
Whether at home on a nightstand or a sofa table (with a twin), this striking lamp makes a quiet but impressive style statement, glinting with the gentle magic of something natural but exotic (a hunk of moon rock, perhaps?). A drum shade — modern and clean — provides the perfect counterpoint to the organic-inspired base.
