We have a shortlist of retailers when it comes to furnishing our spaces, and the end-of-summer Wayfair Labor Day Sale ranks high on our list of shopping holidays (move over, Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday). Whether you’re about to move into a new space or you’re just looking for a bit of a refresh, Wayfair is one of those online spaces where you can find just about anything. We recommend heading to their stock if you’re looking to buy furniture for the first time and are exploring your own interior design style. Living room seating, bookcases, office furniture, loveseats, home goods, bar stools, kitchen appliances (dutch ovens or cookware, anyone?), coffee tables, area rugs, wall art—the list of things you can get on Wayfair is never ending.
And though you have some time before the holiday weekend officially kicks off (from September 1-4), we’ve decided to make things easier by putting together a list of things we’re hoping to see in the Labor Day weekend sale, from home decor and patio furniture to dining sets and bedroom furniture. Read on and make the most of all the best Labor Day furniture sales happening right now.
Great for home offices or any spot you love to read, this lamp is a little bit modern and a little bit retro. It’s available in four colors, but we’re partial to the green. Pro tip: Opt for a lamp with a textured shade (or something in an unexpected material) for a pop of personality.
Storage isn’t always pretty, but it sure is in this case. Ideal for a small living room where every piece of furniture needs to double as storage space, this single-arm sofa is high on our list of Wayfair Labor Day sale deals. The chaise-style seat is hiding a pocket of storage underneath, while two drawers pull out to pack in even more space.
Media console, TV stand, a place to line up the 10 cups you accumulate during the workday…we’re not going to tell you how to use this piece of living space furniture. But the step-up design is fun, and we love that. The natural wood grain and sleek black hardware is a nice touch too.
The five-burner design on this number means you can grill all kinds of things at once—no more missing the backyard party because you’re too busy making food for everyone. Plus, the porcelain-coated grates inside the grill are rust-resistant (a very underrated detail, in our opinion).
Sometimes we come across something pretty chic on Wayfair, and this dining room set checks the box. The upholstered seats are cozy and comfortable—lift up the cushion and you’ve got storage space in each stool. It gives conversation pit vibes (in spirit) and is highly versatile. Pull the pedestal seats up for dinner, or scatter them around the room for your next party.
You may hear the name “Dyson” and think “vacuums,” but the brand makes some pretty sleek air purifiers and fans we’ve had the pleasure of testing ourselves. This combo removes 99.97% of particles in the air (including bacteria and pet dander). As the name suggests, it’s also a fan for those hotter-than-hot summer days. Its slim design makes it easy to hide behind living room furniture, too.
A backyard conversation set—usually a handful of chairs and a small table—needs to be a few things: Comfortable enough to lounge in, sturdy enough to handle lots of laughs, and cute. This five-piece outdoor furniture set is sleek and made of solid wood.
The adorable ties along the edge of this linen duvet cover are cuter than cute. It’s the kind of design detail you see in a home tour or your design-enthusiast friend’s apartment that you make a mental note to copy in your own home. Even better: It’s machine washable.
Whether you’re looking to outfit an entryway or ground your patio furniture, a rug can completely change a space. This one has a relatively simple pattern, but is fade- and stain-resistant.
Made of solid wood, the slatted headboard on this frame is reminiscent of Shaker-style furniture and the curved shape gives off wingback vibes. It’s a lot of detail for a bed, but it doesn’t look like it’s trying too hard—and that’s hard to nail down.
Just like we love a monochromatic outfit, we’re big fans of the all-over pleats featured on this minimalist table lamp. It’s made of jute, but from far away it gives off cardboard vibes (and we mean that in a good, “wow, that’s chic” kind of way).
If you’re a fan of sneaky storage moments, you’re going to like this pill-shaped cabinet. At first glance, it comes off more like a sculpture, but it’s actually two stacked doors that reveal a cute display space. It’s perfect for an entryway, housing all of the things you (usually) forget when you leave home.
If you’re after Burlwood vibes but the price point is throwing you off, bookmark this one. It can hang on a wall or lean against something sturdy for a more casual look. Pro tip: Hang it horizontally in a hallway that doesn’t get much light for a boost of brightness.
