Luxe Beds, Dreamy Prices

If you’re taking advantage of all the white sales going on and buying fresh bedding, it seems silly to put the new sheets on a 10-year-old saggy mattress. Luckily for you, this is the one time every year when Hästens discounts its showroom floor samples by 30 percent to make room for 2013 samples. This is your chance to get a handmade, all-natural bed from Sweden for almost a third of its original price. Yes, they’re still pricey (the Frame Superia II queen went from $9,740 to $6,818) but all come with a 25-year warranty. That means you won’t need a new bed until 2038! Test one out at Chicago Luxury Beds, 440 N. Wells St. And if Hästens doesn’t do it for you, Chicago Luxury Beds has marked down lots of other beds by up to 40 percent. Don’t snooze on this offer—the sale only lasts until the end of the month.


Worth Pining For

If you’ve been to the Whole Foods near North and Clybourn, there’s no way you could have missed Vintage Pine (904 W. Blackhawk St., 312-943-9303). It’s the huge warehouse-sized décor store right across the street. Well if you haven’t been inside, now’s the time to go because they’re having a winter warehouse sale the entire month of January. Everything in Vintage Pine is marked down between 15 and 60 percent. And I mean everything: tables, chairs, armoires, chests, buffets, entertainment centers, mirrors, lamps, accessories, and holiday décor.
