It is always a treat to potter around an Anthropologie sale, but with many of us preferring to shop online at the moment, the best finds can be somewhat less accessible.
So, we thought, why not do the hard work for you – acknowledging, of course, that spending a couple of hours online looking for the best buys on Anthropologie's website is no kind of hardship?
This is our edit of the top sale finds – US first, then UK. They are beautiful, brilliantly priced and will add a touch of much needed color to your home at this time of year.

Folkthread Chair Was $448, now $299.95
Featuring screen-printed and embroidered upholstery inspired by a textile spotted in a market overseas, this chair is a convivial companion at the dinner table. A leather handle helps it transition easily into extra seating, should the occasion call for a nightcap in the living room.

My first job was writing a DIY column for a magazine for the over 50s (which seemed a long way off back then). I then moved to a DIY magazine as deputy ed, then freelanced my way around the homes departments of most women's magazines on the market before working on Your Home and Family Circle magazines as homes editor. From there, I went to Ideal Home magazine as associate editor, then launched 4Homes magazine for Channel 4, then the Channel 4 4Homes website before going back to freelancing and running a social media business (you can see where I had kids from the freelancing gaps!). I was tempted back to the world of big business by the chance to work with the great team at Realhomes.com, where I was Global Editor-in-Chief for two and a half years, taking it from a small website to a global entity. I've now handed the reins of the website to our American managing editor, while I take on a new challenge as Editor-in-Chief of Homes & Gardens.
