We all love a bargain; the sales are here so it’s time to go shopping! But, before you head out there are a few things you must remember:
- What are you looking for? What do you need? Always good to know this!
- When buying for the home don’t forget your concept words (3-5 words on how you want your home to look and feel). If the item you’re looking at doesn’t fit with these words – don’t buy it!
- What are the shops selling at the biggest discount, there must be a reason why, go ahead and ask them.
- If you’re buying large pieces for your home, measure the space you’re hoping it’ll fit in and take your tape measure with you, draw a plan, take a photo. Many of the sales assistants will be able to help you.
- Check out the shops website before you go shopping, see what they have, have they sold out of the item you were interested in. This could save you a lot of time and effort.
- Always check to see if there is any damage or discolouring, always look at the back of the piece of furniture.
- Put your name down on the Sample Sale lists
Tips for shopping in the sales from some of HK’s best loved retailers:
Ask the H.D. Buttercup team for made-in-the-U.S.A. pieces that can’t be found anywhere else — and won’t last long.
Buying in the Sales is a great opportunity to buy i) large and/or expensive core pieces, ii) something indulgent or for fun and iii) winter products, as larger discounts are offered in the Summer.
As a lot of their furniture is custom made, their customers can compare the different fabrics or material variations. They also provide a professional consultancy service, so the customer can take photos of their home, bring to the shop, and they can provide some suggestions on choosing the right piece for them.
Always get to the Sales as early as you can to ensure you don’t miss out on the offer you want.
Treat yourself to a quality mattress; although not a statement piece in style it will have an unbelievable impact on your mental wellbeing if you can get a good nights sleep!
Before heading into the sale madness, assess your space and identify what pieces you want to invest in – this will help you narrow down your choices as you browse through the wide selection of furniture on offer. Do keep an eye out for items that aren’t on your list – you never know when you’ll come across a hidden treasure that unexpectedly catches your eye!
For larger furniture items, opt for timeless, quality pieces that are sure to last you through generations, as well as provide a beautiful base for you to play with seasonal trends. A naturally stunning selection of finishing touches is where you can get adventurous, and can easily be updated or layered on each season to keep a continually fresh look.

Some of their favourite items that are on offer this season include their Solid bed defined by its streamlined, sturdy and strong design; their Nordic sideboard that boasts lean lines and sliding doors for a sleek and contemporary look; as well as their Dolly slim rack that pairs warm reclaimed solid teak with cool iron for the perfect industrial chic piece.
On the sofa front, there’s their Parker L-shaped sofa, which features deep seating and plush cushions for an ultra-cosy seat, along with a chaise that can be positioned on the left or right of the sofa depending on your preference and needs.
