Summer Deals – Two Weeks Left!

August 18, 2016

Summer is almost over, but we still have a couple weeks left to “aprovechar las rebajas” in the Spanish furniture and home decor shops, i.e. take advantage of the summer sales with discounts reaching 70%. Here is my selection.

1. Olhom

Olhom has a lot of fun stuff up to 75% off in its Outlet section: from lamps and dishware to wall art and rugs. Use REBAJASAGOSTO promo code for an additional 15% discount.

2. Maisons du Monde dishware

MdM still still has some beautiful pottery on sale (30-50% off) featuring dishes, bowls and mugs from different collections. Shop here.

3. Looking for designer items?

If you’re on the hunt for designer pieces make sure you check out domésticoShop. They are currently selling off exposition items from their 4 show rooms (2 in Barcelona and 2 in Madrid). Discounts reach 80%. For example, the Viccarbe chair below priced at €1.166,44 is now available with a 40% discount, and you can get 50% off this cool Scandi Treku sideboard (€2.115). You need to register to access the Outlet though.

Madrid-based Deleite Design also has discounts on designer furniture and accessories with a Nordic touch, such as this sideboard, now available for €1887,6.

Another online-shop which is not to be missed if you’re looking for Nordic and vintage items is Barcelona-based Miv interiores. Discounts on their Outlet are not very high (15-20%), but they have a lovely selection of ceiling lights and pastel sofas and lounge chairs.

4. Colonial styles from Banak

For colonial styles see Banak Importa, they have some very good deals until the end of the month. They have an online shop, but also more than 100 franchise shops across Spain. If you like something online I recommend ordering through a physical shop closest to you (find one here).

5. Home textiles in El Corte Inglés

 El Corte Inglés is now in 60-70% sale, and you can still grab some great home textiles, including bedding from Desigual, Purificación García, Bassols, Sheridan and other local and international brands.

Best Ofertas of the End of May

May 27, 2016

Here comes my biweekly selection of  ongoing sales and special offers in Spanish online stores. Free shipping in Maisons du Monde, 20% off everything in Textura Interiors, Spring Black Friday in Olhom, king-size beds for under 300€, geometric patterned rugs and beautiful exotic home accessories from Westwing.

This time the list is shorter than usual, but I simply wasn’t very impressed with what I found, so I only limited to the offers that really stood out for me.  I’m already so looking forward to the summer sales…I’m planning to finish furnishing my place, so I have great hopes for July…however, I still need the actual plan, or, in other words, the concept for my two remaining rooms. Both are tiny, so a post on small bedroom design is definitely coming anytime soon, but first I need to get lost on Pinterest at least for a few hours. But going back to today’s topic…

Free shipping in Maisons du Monde

My favorite French chain has free shipping on all decoration items until May 31st, minimal purchase is 20€. This means everything except furniture, including big items such as rugs, room dividers or stools, along with a wide range of beautiful dishware and textiles. Personally, I’ve already taken advantage of this offer and bought some beautiful plates and a gratin dish from Capri collection using a gift card my friend gave me for birthday. Best B-day gift ever! Although, the dish was broken during transportation, so I’m now waiting for refund or something. Bummer!

20% off everything and recycle campaign in Textura Interiors

This week-end, May 26-29th, the local home textile chain is offering 20% discount in its physical stores and online. Use SPRING20 discount code online or find the nearest store here. Personally, I’m a big fan of their beach collection. There’s a great selection of towels and little bags to keep your bikini, flip-flops and other belongings.

Also, Textura is currently having a recycling campaign: if you bring your old home textiles (such as, bed sheets, towels, or table cloths) to a Textura store and place them in a special container, you can get a cheque worth up to  15€. You’ve got until the end of this week. Find more details here.

Spring Black Friday in Olhom

Olhom online store is offering a 20% discount on everything until May 31st. My favorites from the collections on sale are Granada-inspired Arabian style accessories, including a variety of lamps, candle-holders, trays and boxes and a vintage beach house collection.

Barcelona Let's go shopping

Av. Diagonal: Best Barrio to Shop Home Decor in Barcelona

May 3, 2016

This week I decided to skip the selection of sales and special offers in Spanish furniture and home décor shops. I browsed a number of shops, but there simply weren’t enough interesting bargains and ‘ofertas’ to put together a worthwile post, so instead I thought I’d share with you my favorite home décor shopping site in the center of Barcelona, which is in a few minute walk from Diagonal metro station, where Avenida Diagonal crosses Passeig de Gracia. Seven of them are located on Avenida Diagonal as such within 350 meters from each other, and the last one is just a few blocks away. For my readers who happen to live in other cities, don’t rush to close this page, because most of these furniture and home accessories shops (7 out of 8) are quite big chains and have an online shop, so you may still find this post useful :)

So I suggest we take a virtual stroll on la Diagonal, and visit the following shops which cater to pretty much any taste in home design.

  1. Habitat, Av. Diagonal, 514
  2. Zara Home, Av. Diagonal, 490
  3. A Loja do Gato Preto, Av. Diagonal 484
  4. Natura Casa, Av. Diagonal 472
  5. Deko Palace, Av. Diagonal 458
  6. Maisons du Monde, Av. Diagonal, 405
  7.  Pilma, Av. Diagonal, 403
  8. Banak Importa, c/ Rosellón, 207
