West Elm is one of our favorite spots to shop for elegant, versatile furniture and decor that lasts a lifetime. Although we would happily shell out the big bucks for their timeless pieces, it’s scoring fabulous furniture on sale days that brings us the most joy. So, if you’re anything like us, you’ll probably want to know about the West Elm discovery Outlet Deals Section. Chock full of amazing finds at some of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen, the outlet section is a mixture of items on super sale and “Open Box” pieces. Items that fall into the latter category, including furniture, bedding, and decor, have been previously unboxed, then returned due to minor blemishes, and now they’re ready for a new home. By blemishes, we’re talking hard-to-see scratches or slight wear. But don’t let that stop you, with some of these items on sale for up to 50 percent off, they’re more than worth it.

You can make the shade look summery with matching brightly colored decor or pair it with deeper tones during fall. Of course, you not only get a luxe, moisture-wicking bed covering with your purchase — you get the matching pillow shams, too. The set's subtle texture further adds an element of interest.

One of the simplest ways to elevate the look of your bathroom is to introduce a nice-looking toilet paper holder. Not one of those janky metal or plastic ones, but instead something like this steel upright holder that's on sale for just $38. It has a slim design that's ideal for small spaces, plus its black finish adds a sense of refinement to the vicinity. And who knew a toilet paper holder could be described as refined?

No living area is complete without a stylish and equally comfy armchair, so snag this sophisticated seat for less while it's still available.

Baths are fun and relaxing, but if you've ever tried to take one without one of these handy caddies, you know what a hassle they can turn into.

We simply can't get enough of its gold-toned finish and vintage-looking design.
