Mid-Century Modern Furniture
Save 15%: Design Within Reach is essentially a museum for the furniture that all other furniture rips off. This is to say the products it purveys are items you’re likely familiar with in shape (like the Tolix chair’s ubiquity in faux-industrial restaurants), but less so in regards to origin. What this means is the furniture and lighting options are original and premium and demand prices as such.
It also means they don’t go on sale all that often, hence the urgency of DWR’s Semiannual Sale, which offers a large swath of DWR’s stock for 15 percent off retail (Note: the sale page on the site is only a selection of what’s actually on sale, you’ll have to browse through the categories you’re interested in to spot more items).

Save Up to 30%: Costa Farms is the largest seller of houseplants in the US by a country mile. Today, almost 20 of its simplest, best-selling houseplants are on sale up to 30 percent off on Amazon of all places.
The lot includes all the hardy, beginner houseplants for those new to the game that is keeping another thing alive. Jade plants ($15), which are virtually immortal, do just fine in indirect light and with very little water (if the leaves start to turn red, move it further from direct light). Snake plants ($17), also unwilling to die despite your best efforts, require watering only when the soil is bone dry and don’t care much for sunlight (but generally aren’t hindered by it). Air plants ($15) don’t even need soil to live (just soak in water once a week).
On top of showing your friends and family you have your life somewhat together, plants in the home act as air recycling and purification centers (according to an old NASA report on the matter, Snake plants are pretty great in this regard).
The Amazon sale lasts until tomorrow afternoon. — Will Price
Insulated Jackets Sale
Save 50%: The beauty of an insulated down jacket is that it’s incredibly warm, yet stuffs up into a pocket and weighs practically nothing. This past week, our Outdoors and Fitness team hiked near Lake Placid in the Adirondacks in New York, and we were reminded of just how cozy a down jacket is. One of our team members wore his down jacket all week long, while I found it extremely beneficial to hike with since the weather was misty and dreary. If I got too hot, off came the puffer and into my hiking pack it went. While it certainly doesn’t feel like fall or winter in the city, the temperatures are changing rapidly. Stocking up on a down jacket — especially one on sale — is a good idea this Columbus Day.— Meg Lappe
Tom Ford: Shade Master
Save up to 70% on these sunglasses: Tom Ford’s sunglasses are something of a cult favorite. Right now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save up to 70 percent on a few different Italian-made styles.— John Zientek
