I’m a Style Editor, and This Is the One Thing I’m Buying This Black Friday (It’s 80 Percent Off!)
Black Friday is my home shopping time to shine, especially for traditionally expensive furniture pieces. And I have a strategy: if there’s something I love that might otherwise fall out of my price range, I save it in my cart until it goes on sale. I’ve snagged my current living room sectional and favorite mirror, both of which had been on my wishlist for ages, at major discounts from two separate Black Fridays. Budget-friendly apartment decorating win-win!
This year, though, because most of my big-ticket bases are already covered in the furniture department (thanks, Black Friday), I’m setting my sights on smaller home accents and decor discounts. I’ve done an extensive shopping audit, scoping out ongoing deals from brands like West Elm, Walmart, Albany Park, and more. And so far, of all the bargained products I’ve browsed, there’s one Wayfair find that I keep revisiting for both its price and prettiness: an end table with built-in storage, currently 80 percent off (!!!) at $49.99.
I love the table for its compact footprint, measuring just 24 inches tall and 18 inches around. That means it’s the perfect small space accessory in any room, especially thanks to the bottom shelf, which carves out much-needed storage for books, magazines, records, or small baskets. Even the tray-style tabletop provides an additional catch-all type of area, as well as plenty of decorating potential if you want to add a plant, pretty bowl, or lamp (and so much more!).
This piece is ultra versatile in terms of styling, too: you can create a modern nightstand setup adjacent to your bed, an end table alongside the sofa, or even a chic home office “file cabinet” of sorts. And with a Black Friday discount this good (repeat, 80 percent off!), you can stock up on multiple tables to disperse throughout different rooms, or grouped together for a symmetrical living room or bedroom vignette. Best of all, no matter where this is positioned, the neutral wood tone and industrial, minimalist silhouette instantly complement any interior design style.
On top of the dark walnut version pictured above, though, you can actually choose from two other tabletop finishes, reclaimed barnwood or gray wash, both also on sale for $129.99 and $132.99, respectively. You can’t go wrong with either design or price, especially compared to the original $245 cost, but the real standout Black Friday steal here is still the dark walnut shade specifically — less than $50 for a storage-friendly side table. Act fast while this can’t-miss deal lasts!
