By Daniella Viggiani

Everyone likes having time to mull over a purchase. Do you need that new set of pendants? How much use will that bar cart really see? The floating media shelf looks good now — what about a year from now? We get it — smart buying takes time. But now? Now, it’s Black Friday.

It’s the one time of year where quick decisions and an educated impulse can yield the best piece you didn’t know you needed. And not only do we get it, we got you: below, our curated guide to Toronto’s best Black Friday deals.

On the lookout for industrial-chic wares and modern accessories? Score 10 per cent off all Ethnicraft solid wood furniture, modern beds, tables and chairs and 20 per cent off all JotterGoods from November 27 to December 2. Check out the sale here.

Buoy Nightstand Floating Shelf Kroft Toronto Design


Because Toronto-made is better, snag 49 per cent off select floating nightstands, wall hooks, stools and benches until December 2 at 11:59 p.m. Our favourites include the Buoy Floating Nightstand, made by hand (in Toronto, or course) by carpenter and designer Dustin Kroft. Check out the sale here.


From November 27 – 30, save 25 per cent on all glass collections in the Artemide Design Collection. The best of the bunch? The Eclisse Lamp, an old favourite that functions as a chic bedside lamp. Check out the sale here.
