Article’s Furniture Sale Is About To Make Your Sofa Shopping So Much More Fun


You've no doubt been patiently waiting for an Article furniture sale since learning about the online store's affordable modern home furnishings. It seemed like the entire world discovered Article at once, falling in love for the same reasons: the store's cheap, Instagrammable furniture is actually well made. Though the brand's lush sofas have landed in the hallowed design halls of Architectural Digest, the signature low prices haven't changed, and you can save even more during Article's Holiday Hosting sale.

According to Article's website, the sale ends Dec. 16 at midnight, PT. Though the sale is limited to select pieces and colorways, it's a well-curated selection nonetheless, with scores in trendy colors and textures. Two sofas are marked down during the event, including this dreamy gray velvet sofa for $899. Originally $999, the neutral gray colorway of the Mirage sofa may be the easiest to style, too.

Buying a sofa online without ever trying it out is easy thanks to Article's popularity. Each color of the Mirage sofa has a rating over four stars, with the gray Mirage currently at 4.3 stars. Apartment Therapy reviewed 16 of the most popular Article sofas, as well, and gave the Mirage sofa a thorough run-down; overall comfort got a 3.2 out of five, with the reviewers commenting enthusiastically on the sofa's pretty appearance.

Marked down to $499 from $599, this warm orange velvet chair has the same luxe texture as the Mirage with more mid-century modern style. Reviews for the regal chair — aptly named the Thetis, perhaps after the mother of Greek mythological hero Achilles — are downright glowing. The Thetis is a steal at the sale price, too; the frame is genuine, solid kiln-dried wood, and the fabric is true cotton velvet. As a bonus, the chair has no assembly required, so you'll be to style it right out of the box.

Need a light? The sale's most-featured item is the Etoile pendant lamp. All 12 versions of the lamp — three sizes in four colors — are discounted. The pendant's shade is dappled with small holes that let pinpricks of light show through ("étoile" is French for star, after all). Go ahead and order the 20-inch pendant light in frost blue while it's on sale at $169 from $199, since shades of teal are set to be one of 2019's interior design trends.

Ahead, eight pieces on sale during Article's Holiday Hosting event. If nothing strikes your fancy, go explore the entirety of Article's online furniture store. While not all on sale, the prices across the website are still hard to beat.
