Black Friday in Spanish Shops: My Selection

November 25, 2016

BLACK FRIDAY is here! If you’re ready to go on a shopping spree here is my selection of Black Friday offers from Spanish (and international) furniture and home decor shops.

El Corte Inglés

The leading national department store is offering a 30% discount on lamps, up to 50% off dishware, up to 60% off bedding and up to 70% off a variety of rugs.

Maisons du Monde

The French chain decided not to celebrate Black Friday specifically, but they have just launched free shipping on home decor, and in their case it also includes bigger items, like stools and rugs. Minimum purchase is 20€. The autumn-winter collections are very pretty, check out my post I dedicated them a while ago.


For Black Friday, this online store is taking VAT off their prices on chairs, tables, armchairs and bedroom furniture. You can get a great deal on chair sets (x6) if you need one. And I’m absolutely in love with this red velvet armchair, other colours are available too, the price is 247.09€.

Another popular online store is also offering a 20% off everything, but this excludes the outlet section. Use BLACKFRIDAY promo code.

Guille García-Hoz

Guille García-Hoz is a renowned Spanish decorator and interior designer, whose name I first learnt during my visit to Casa Decor exhibition in Madrid this June, his rustic kitchen for Samsung was one of the projects I liked the most. He also has a lovely shop in the center of Madrid, where you can find his quirky animalistic designs, along with cool ceramics from other local artisans, such as Abe the ape.  For Black Friday, Guille is offering 20% on his own designs.

If you’re looking for high-quality designer furniture and home accessories make sure you check out Pilma. The famous Spanish brand is offering 20% off everything.

Inuk Home

I’m not a big fan of Nordic style, but this shop has some very lovely designs, especially the headboards, just look at them! Until Monday 27th a lot of items on Inuk Home comes with up to 40% discounts. The website structure is a bit messy, to find the “rebajas” you need to first go to the category you need (Lighting, Furniture, etc.) Good thing is they have an English version!

Kenay Home

Another popular store specializing on Scandinavian design is offering 10% off furniture and 20% off home decor items. This one also has physical stores in Valencia, Madrid and Barcelona, here is my post about the Barcelona store  to give you an idea of the spaces you can create with their products.

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!

Maisons du Monde free shipping

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.

Textura beach collection

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
