Minneapolis-based Blu Dot has become one of our editors’ favorite design brands for its bold furniture and accessories, fun-loving personality, and dedication to its Midwestern roots. That’s why we consider its annual sale a can’t miss event. From a statement-making pendant lamp to a deep-seated sofa, there’s much to be coveted. Here are our top picks from the Minneapolis-based brand’s sale, which runs through Oct. 28.
8 Designs You’ll Want to Snag from Blu Dot’s Sale
Here’s what to add to your cart first at the annual event.By The Editors

Cat’s Pajamas Lounge Chair
The Cat’s Pajamas chair is 360 degrees of good design. From its bent powder-coated steel back to its cradled seat, the lounger will catch eyes from all angles.
Perimeter Small Pendant Light in Ochre
A statement-making pendant lamp in a bright-yellow shade is not for the faint of heart, but it certainly makes a design statement. The decidedly bold shade of the Perimeter Pendant will unapologetically be the centerpiece of any room.
Real Good Dining Chair in Sweetness
There’s a good chance you might recognize the Real Good Chair: It’s a favorite among hotel, hospitality, and office designers—and rightly so. The chair, on offer in a powdery-pink version, will elevate any room with its distinct shape and striking angles.
Coco Tall Side Table
The Coco tall side table shows the benefits of keeping it simple. Made from dark acacia wood, the piece gets itself noticed without stealing the show. Its subtlety makes it a great investment—a timeless design that will outlast trends.
The name of this piece says it all. The Sunday sofa embodies everything there is to love about the week’s laziest day. Its deep seats, soft linen fabric, and incredibly plush cushions make it the perfect place to make the Sunday scaries melt away. Even better, it looks damn good from Monday through Friday, too.
Aside from its earthy acacia-wood materiality, the best thing about the Turn stool is that it can be whatever you need it to be: seating, table, or ottoman. The solid-wood piece is just as functional as it is handsome.
Dang Two-Drawer Two-Door Console
Don’t worry about your TV equipment ruining the sleekness of the the Dang console. Its most attractive design element is its most genius one: the perforated panels won’t interfere with a remote. Combined with antique brass doors and pulls and a well-structured steel base, it’s a great place to tuck away clutter.
Nook Queen Bed
The Nook bed is a simple design that yields substantial results. Its curved headboard creates a feeling of, well, a nook, while the minimal frame exhibits a stylish modernism.
