It’s hard to believe, but we’re already approaching Memorial Day weekend. Instead of dwelling on the fact that this means we’re halfway through the year (nobody panic), let’s stay positive; MDW is also the unofficial start of summer. And while the meaning of the holiday has nothing to do with retail, it’s fortuitously a great time to save big on the investment furniture and finishing touches you’ve been putting off buying.

Whether you are moving into a new place and need to furnish it or on the hunt for a key home update, there are tons of Memorial Day sales to check out. In an effort to make your online shopping experience a little less overwhelming, we’ve curated our list of the best design discounts to know about—ahead, our favorites. Happy shopping and happy summer!

If you’ve been waiting to splash out on a living room update…

Article is offering up to 50 percent off on more than 150 items, valid through June 2. Consider this your chance to pick up a new sofa or cushy accent chair to give your living room a fresh look; after all, it’s moving season, and if your new apartment could use some bold style, there’s no better chance to splurge.

If your mattress has seen better days…

From now until May 27, Allswell is offering 30 percent off bedding and 15 percent off mattresses. Use the code SUMMER to cash in on a new mattress. The already-affordable piece will revolutionize your sleep—so in many ways, you’re buying yourself the gift of rest.

If you’re thinking about becoming a linen bedding person…

Head to Parachute: From May 24 to 27, the retailer has slapped a 20-percent-off price tag on the entire site. Use this discount on anything from plush bath towels to stylish kitchen textiles, though we recommend taking this opportunity to pick up some of the brand’s famous linen bedding. It’s the perfect lightweight style for summer.

If you’ve been putting off building your gallery wall…

From May 26 to 28, Society6 has a slew of discounts. The sale includes 40 percent off tapestries, posters, and throw pillows; 30 percent off art prints; and 20 percent off almost everything else (bar furniture and outdoor products). The brand just launched a collection of tiny prints that’s particularly delightful, if you’re stumped on where to start.

If you’re decidedly pro-kitchen rugs

Try your hand at the divisive trend by picking up something from Lulu & Georgia’s site-wide sale, happening now until May 28. Its sale (which includes much more than rugs if your interests extend past textiles) operates on a scale: Orders of $300-plus get 15 percent off with the code GOOD; orders of $600-plus get 20 percent off with the code BETTER; and orders of $900-plus get 25 percent off with the code BEST.

If you’re about to decorate your first apartment…

Burrow is perfect for first apartments and small spaces alike, thanks to its flat-pack shipping and low prices—the latter of which is about to get even more affordable, thanks to the Memorial Day sale. Take 10 percent off site-wide until May 27. Also, orders of $1,400-plus get 15 percent off, and orders of $2,500-plus get 20 percent off—so there’s even a bigger incentive to splurge.  

If you’re the balling-on-a-budget type…

There’s always IKEA. Through June 2, IKEA Family members get to save on a number of items, both in store and online. Some highlights: 20 percent off all outdoor furniture (for your summer barbecues), 20 percent off all cushions and cushion covers (for your seasonal refresh), and 15 percent off all custom countertops (for getting a kick-start on your dream kitchen).

If you’re committed to seeing the minimalist wave through…

Turn to Floyd for up to $150 off its signature Scandinavian-style pieces. Now through May 27, use the code MEMORIAL19 for $50 off all tables, $75 off beds, and $150 off sofas. Each item is simple sophistication at its finest.
