The great thing about IKEA is that you don’t have to wait a year to be able to afford its products, even the priciest ones. However, that doesn’t make the brand’s annual summer sale any less exciting—we always love a good discount. The event is officially around the corner, kicking off on June 26, so if you’ve been eyeing the IKEA x Tom Dixon Delaktig sofa, it’s time to start making arrangements for moving it in.

IKEA’s summer sale is in stores only and will run until July 7, so deals are essentially being offered on a first come, first served basis. The main attraction is the up-to-50-percent-off discount on select items, but those with an IKEA Family membership stand to benefit even more. From specials on lighting to additional savings online during the event, the perks are reason enough to sign up for the retailer’s program. Oh, and members get free coffee at the IKEA restaurant—crucial for navigating the maze of staged apartments.

While we don’t know for certain what in-store items will be part of the sale, we definitely have our wish list. Here are the four items we hope make it into the 50-percent-off category:

Minnen Bed Frame


Bronden Rug


Overallt Easy Chair


PS 2017 Table Lamp
