Nordstrom’s famous Anniversary Sale is back in action, and while you’ll of course score amazing deals on clothing, shoes, and accessories, you can also scoop up some incredible finds for your home, too. 

The annual sale goes through August 6 in-store and online, so you have plenty of time to shop. You’ll find tons of items with discounts of at least 25 percent off, and if you’re a Nordy Club member, you’ll get extra perks, too. Even though the sale is running for a while, I don’t suggest waiting too long, because many items are already low in inventory, and there’s nothing less disappointing than missing out on a great deal. 

Because scrolling through the entire list of sale offerings can be a bit overwhelming, I’ve tapped interior designers and asked them to weigh in with their top picks from the home section. Below are 12 of their favorite Nordstrom picks on sale.

Wooden bowls are my go-to. They are perfect for decor — throw some artichokes in there to add some green and you have yourself tabletop decor!” —Designer Megan Pisano, founder of Megan Pisano Design in Chatham, New Jersey

was $59.00

“I’m loving this cheese board. It’s the perfect hostess gift and makes any coffee table or kitchen island look chic. It’s pretty enough to leave out all year leaning against your backsplash, or to pull out when guests come over. I would style a kitchen with this cheese board, and I use a similar one in my own kitchen.” —Designer Cara Fineman, founder of DAG Design in Dover, Massachusetts

“You can’t go wrong with Diptyque candles. They will add the perfect Parisian touch to your interior (trust me, I’m French!).” —Designer Anaïs Chaumien

4 / 12
was $79.95

“Mulberry silk is a personal favorite for my primary bed pillows. The material is luxe, washable, and works great to pair with my main bedding sets. The option from Blissy is a strong contender being 100 percent mulberry silk.” —Designer Eilla Pradier, founder of of Eilla Adi Design in Newport Beach, California

5 / 12
was $140.00

“We love Parachute Home bedding. The slate blue linen sheet caught my eye — I have a Parachute linen duvet and sheets in my own home.” —Designer Michelle Dirkse, founder of Michelle Dirske Interior Design in Seattle, Washington

6 / 12
was $105.00

This watch storage case is a perfect accent for a bedside table or styled on top of a dresser. It keeps my watch collector client’s timepieces organized in a handsome aesthetic case (that also comes in a variety of colors to suit your design) and, let’s be honest, keeps the Type A-ness in check by not seeing watches on every surface!” —Designer Liza Nicole

7 / 12
was $69.99

“There's a reason cafe curtains are making a comeback! This is a great, off-the-rack, slubbed linen set that allows for adjustable privacy and light for your space. Paired with a custom rod (or save and go adjustable), they are especially efficient and pretty in kitchens and bathrooms. I'm using them in a primary bathroom renovation project where the view is just too good for blinds or traditional shades, and they add the perfect airy texture to complete the space." —Designer Liza Nicole, founder of Liza Nicole Interiors in North Wilmington, Delaware

8 / 12
was $563.00

“I love a layered bed, and although I try to keep the color palette of a bed in the same hue, I like to add a variety of textures; this creates a rich and tranquil look. This duvet is a great starting point to create a layered look. It is light, neutral, and works well in a variety of room styles.” —Designer Lauren Miles, founder of Lauren Miles Interior Design in Burlington, Vermont

9 / 12
was $241.00

“Quilts are a great way to give your bed a simple refresh and add another layer to your current bedding. I love the texture of this quilt and it comes in a few subtle colors that will work great in any room.” —Designer Brianna Untener, founder of Brianna Scott Interiors in New York, New York

10 / 12
was $218.00

“I love finishing a bed with a lumbar pillow, and this one would be the perfect addition to pretty much any bedroom. The neutral color would fit a lot of aesthetics, but the geometric pattern still makes it interesting.” —Designer Anaïs Chaumien, founder of Design by Anaïs in Brooklyn, New York

11 / 12
was $98.00

“Made from luxuriously soft plush fabric, this blanket offers a delightful sensory experience, providing warmth and a touch of indulgence. Perfect for snuggling up on chilly nights or adding an extra layer of comfort to your living space.” —Designer Payal Bansal, founder of Payal Bansal Interior Design in Buffalo, New York

This vacuum cleaner is a total game-changer. I have this model and use it daily — I have two dogs who bring dirt into the house. This vacuum is so easy to use and small enough to store easily in a small closet or nook. I always recommend it to clients.” —Designer Cara Fineman
