Design snobs may scoff, but Wayfair’s Way Day sale—the retailer’s annual two-day sales event—really is an excellent time to find deep discounts on stylish furniture and decor. The sale, which runs through tomorrow, October 26, includes deals of up to 80% off on items across all categories, like Tempur-Cloud pillows, velvet sofas, kitchen appliances, and even trusty robot vacuums. Plus, the sale extends to Wayfair’s sister sites, AllModern, Joss & Main, and Birch Lane, so there’s a lot of design-forward discounts to browse during this pre-Black Friday period. To help you sort through all the sitewide markdowns, we’ve put together a list of the very best Way Day deals on furniture, textiles, decor, and more—all of which ship for free.
Vacuums + Home Appliances
Now’s your chance to enjoy a discount on a cordless robot vacuum from iRobot. AD features editor Nick Mafi calls the brand’s models “particularly great” for all users, but especially nice for anyone who likes to host on the fly.
It’s not the biggest discount, but Bissell’s Revolution Pet Pro Plus Steam vacuum is $50 off this Way Day. (And it’s still cheaper than a professional carpet cleaning.) It lifts tough stains with steam and comes with a two-in-one pet upholstery tool for wet and dry messes. One reviewer calls it a “must” for those with pets and kids.
It’s not often that we see Dyson’s TP01 fan for less than $400. (In fact, it’s currently cheaper at Wayfair than on Amazon.) Because the fan doubles as an air purifier, Clever tester Sarah Madaus says it’s excellent for removing cooking smells in her “teeny tiny” apartment. “It’s taller than it is wide, which I appreciate, and it purifies the air quite efficiently,” she writes. “I keep the fan on pretty high while I’m cooking—especially with my gas stove—and it’s far less obnoxious than my vent fan.”
KitchenAid’s chef-approved tilt-head stand mixer is always a worthy splurge—even more so when it’s on sale. It can mix up to eight dozen cookies in a single batch (perfect for the upcoming holidays), and it has 10 different speeds to knead, shred, whip, and more.
If you’re short on counter space, KitchenAid’s hand mixer is also on sale—the cheapest we’ve seen it online since July. With five speeds and two turbo beater accessories, it can whip up everything from mashed potatoes to pillowy meringues.
Food processors, like this top-rated one from Cuisinart, are excellent for making salsas, soups, and sauces with minimal effort. It’s the “perfect size for my small kitchen, but it packs a big punch,” writes one reviewer. Plus, it’s the cheapest we’ve seen it since last October.
The double-reactive glaze on this stoneware dinnerware set creates a unique finish on each piece, meaning you might very well be able to pass them off as handmade. (Souvenirs from a trip to Portugal, perhaps?)
At $55 for four place settings, this timeless satin-finish flatware set works out to just $2.75 apiece.
Ideal for back, side, and even stomach sleepers, this top-rated Tempur-Cloud pillow is filled with adaptive memory foam that returns to its original shape after each use. (“It offers just the right amount of softness and support,” a five-star review reads.) Plus, it has a removable cover that’s machine washable.
Jute rugs are beloved by interior designers for their durability, design versatility, and resistance to stains. (There’s one in Erin Wasson’s living room, for instance, and in just about every one of these cozy New England homes.) This one comes in a wide range of colors and sizes, but we’re partial to the chocolate brown and natural jute (shown).
We didn’t see this Way Day deal coming. Here’s a convincing (albeit wall-sized) dupe for that Anthropologie floor mirror. The mantel version is on sale too.
Pair the above with this William Morris–inspired peel-and-stick wallpaper, ideal for a hallway or powder bath. Reviewers assure it’s “gorgeous” in person and easy to install.
This knit throw is under $50 and is made entirely from breathable, machine washable cotton (though at three pounds, it’s still got some heft). It’s still in stock in three colorways—though we suspect it won’t be for long.
Given the prevalence of polyester, it’s not every day that we find a cotton velvet, down-filled pillow for under $40.
We’re big fans of sateen sheets, which offer a crisp, cool feel that’s still easy to launder. This deeply discounted set comes with everything you need to make your bed, including a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillow cases.
While some may be skeptical of buying an on-sale sofa sight unseen, the reviewer images of this one really do speak for themselves. The cotton-blend velvet appears especially luxe, and the two lumbar-size throw pillows lend the sofa a classic tailored look. “This sofa is a beautiful, rich shade of green and the velvet is soft but durable,” a reviewer writes. “I love the extra deep seating and the flexibility of the pillows for moving it around and making more space if you want to lie down and take a nap.”
An often overlooked home decor item, poufs can add extra living room seating while doubling as a laptop prop when you’re working from the couch. This reviewer-favorite is made from durable braided jute that, like the rug above, won’t show dirt or stains.
Bamboo shades are another designer go-to, and for good reason. They filter out harsh sunlight without adding bulk, and add a relaxed, textured look to bedrooms and kitchens. These come in 436 (yes, 436) size options and two colorways, now starting at $77 per shade. (That’s significantly cheaper, might we add, than if you purchased a set of curtains and hardware.)
Made from natural seagrass, use these nesting baskets as a stylish way to store throws, bath accessories, or dog toys.
If a live fiddle leaf fig has proved too finicky in the past, here’s an excellent deal on one you’ll never have to water.
The slanted spindles offer a modern twist on these Windsor-inspired counter stools.
Tell everyone you sourced this antique textured vase—available in two versatile glazes and sizes—at a local flea market. They don’t have to know it’s from Wayfair’s biggest sale of the year.
Finally, here’s a good deal on a set of Colin King–esque candle holders to complete your holiday tablescape.
