As a home editor—who just moved into a new apartment—my brain has become utterly consumed by one thing: furniture. Or, more specifically, furniture that won’t bankrupt me for the duration of my lease. So, you can imagine the look of pure joy on my face when I discovered that the West Elm Memorial Day sale is offering up to 60 percent off big-ticket buys from now through Monday, May 29. Not only can you save crazy amounts on furniture—from 50 percent off this best-selling sofa to a teak outdoor sectional reduced from $6,996 to $4,897—but the savings also span across all categories, including decor, dinnerware, bedding, outdoor and garden and more. Here, find everything you need to know, plus 13 items I’m snagging before everything goes out of stock.

Whether you’re like me (decorating a blank living room from scratch) or in need of a bedroom revamp, *now* is the time to splurge on a stunning piece of furniture. If your style skews contemporary, there’s a stunning marble top and mango wood dining table ($2,099; $1,679)—and this set of two curvy dining chairs ($649; $454) are the perfect complements to pair with it. For mid-century modern lovers, however, there’s an antique brass and dark walnut wood desk ($499; $449) that’s basically begging for a spot in your home office. And of course, if you’re looking for a classic, clean-lined upholstered bed frame (from $1,699; $1,189), there’s one of those, too.

Looking for the perfect apartment sofa? This modular number (from $2,897; $2,318) measures 80 inches wide by 80 inches deep—and it has a reversible design that makes rearranging easy (and you can even add pieces over time if you need something bigger). Otherwise, if you have the square footage, this chaise sectional ($3,098; $2,958) ranks as a 2 (plush) on a firmness scale from 1 to 5 (5 being firmest) with sink-in cushions filled with feather, foam and poly fiber and over 48 dreamy upholstery options. But, if there’s one winner of the sofa sale, it’s this sleeper sectional ($4,398; $3,518), which is basically the epitome of form-and-function. Not only does it pull out as a sleeper to reveal a queen-sized gel mattress, but the chaise flips up with a hidden storage compartment that can house all of your bedding needs when you’re using it as a sofa.

Memorial Day means summer is here—and for design lovers, it also means the season of backyard upgrades has arrived. If you’re looking to do a full overhaul, there’s a build-your-own outdoor kitchen (from $699; $559) where you can mix and match different storage cabinets (all made of glass fiber concrete and weatherproof mahogany) for a custom-fitted look. Add to that, the fact that there are a slew of sumptuous yet ultra-durable (not to mention gorgeous) seating options, like this rustic sectional ($4,396; $3,517) which has a moisture-resistant wood frame and yarn-dyed, weather-resistant cushions that’ll hold up over time. And to top it all off you have a push-button, concrete fire pit ($2,399; $1,919) with a weather-resistant sealant that’s just as easy to use as it is pretty to look at.

Now, for the finishing touches. It’s hard not to ooh and ahh at this colorful Persian area rug (from $149; $119) with a wool and cotton blend that can instantly brighten a space. On that note, it’s also worth picking up a few throw pillow covers for a pop of personality, like this Moroccan woven pattern ($53; $42), which is available in five desert-inspired hues. And finally, you have your bedding essentials, like this European flax duvet cover (from $250; $200) which has a lightweight waffle weave that’s perfect for warmer months.
