Updated December 26, 2014: This is our favorite time of the year to head out to the Restoration Hardware outlet stores as they traditionally have a massive end-of-year clearance. Especially if you’re looking for a new leather couch, dining room table, coffee table or lighting. This year they are offing an extra 30% off everything in the store (verified at the Vacaville California store but this may vary depending on where you live). So let’s say something is already marked down by 20% (which it usually is, or more, at their outlet stores) then you’ll get additional 30% off the sticker price. I personally bought their Fulham sofas a few years back right after the new year (three pieces) and combined we save about 60% off the regular price. Just the one downside is that they don’t ship things to your house so you have to arrange the pick-up. Fortunately, most stores will wrap up your purchase for you and let you leave it there for a few days.
If you don’t have a Restoration Hardware outlet store where you live, then you can also check out RH.com for their current sale and clearance items. Although most last chance items are marked down by up to 60% off, they are often non-retunarable so keep that in mind when buying online.
