Its summer sale time, and there are lots of good ones out there. Crate and Barrel is haveing a sale with up to 50% off on select items, and so is CB2. In case you didn't already kn0w CB2 is Crate and Barrels' more affordable and modern counterpart. There are some good deals over in their sale section. Some of my favorites were the rumor table lamp which is a steal at only $69.95. I love the contrast of the woven felt top and the nikel base. Great if you are going for that retro modern look. If you want somthing a little more minimalistic then check out the tonic floor lamp. Its on sale for $89.95 (normally $129) which makes it a good price for a quality floor lamp. Its a must for any neo deco stainless steel lovers.
Of course if you aren't in the market for a lamp, but are still irresistibly drawn to summer sales, there are some great deals for under $10. Take for example the cut out felt placemats at only $5.95 each. I don't know if it is just because my wife is an avid knitter, but I love felt. This table clothes are 98% compressed wool, and they look good too. CB2 also has really cool spray bottles for only $5.95. But what would I do with a orange spray bottle you ask? Come on, its summer, it sprays water, you figure it out.
