West Elm is notable for gorgeous modern furniture. Sleek designs that fit any space—even small apartments—make the retailer our go-to when it’s time to replace our old couches, end tables and rugs. While West Elm sales aren’t rare, we were shocked to discover that there’s actually a way to find even bigger savings on our favorite pieces. Let me introduce you to the West Elm Outlet.

What is the West Elm Outlet?

The West Elm Outlet features hundreds of the brand’s bestselling items at serious discounts. We’re talking savings of more than 50%—with some deals topping out at as much as 70% off. The catch? Items from the West Elm Outlet are a mix of super sales—typically last-season items—and “Open Box” deals.

While the “Open Box” deals sound scary, they’re actually a genius way for West Elm to resell returned items. Items that are “Open Box” were previously purchased and returned due to minor blemishes and dings. Think the All-Clad Factory Seconds sale or Wayfair’s own “Open Box” section. Don’t let that scare you off, though—most of the “Open Box” items only have minor damage that’s difficult to see with the naked eye. A few scratches here and there are well worth a 70% markdown in our opinion!

If you’ve never heard of the West Elm Outlet, you’re probably bursting to head over and check it out for yourself. As Sales Editor of Family Handyman, I compiled a few of my favorite finds from the section, including hot items and finds that boast the biggest savings. Shop my picks below, or head over to the West Elm Outlet and take a peek for yourself! You’re bound to find something you love at prices you won’t find anywhere else.

Yes, and the West Elm Outlet is the place to find serious savings—some of which are even better than Walmart’s sale prices. I’m talking up to 80% off retail—not bad! Find the Outlet in West Elm’s navigational menu under the “sale” section. It’s the very last choice on the menu, so we don’t blame you if you’ve never noticed it before.

When does West Elm have sales?

West Elm has plenty of sales to shop year-round. That said, shopping holidays like Memorial Day, President’s Day and Black Friday boast some of the retailer’s biggest savings all year.
