A John Lewis sale? On homewares? Now that's something we can get behind. While we try not to have favourites here at Realhomes.com, if we really had to choose a favourite homeware retailer, John Lewis would certainly be on the shortlist. So, when we got wind of their autumn home event and a cracking 20% off the vast majority of their homewares, we donned our bargain hunting specs, grabbed a cuppa and delved deep into the John Lewis website.
Having emerged a *few* hours later, we're ready to report on our findings. And by Jove, there are some absolute corkers. From sofas and sofa beds – perfect for putting up your relatives over the festive period – to bedding, lighting and other cosy bits that will give your home all those hygge vibes, there's a hell of a lot on offer. Browse our top picks below and find plenty of inspiration with our styling ideas...

1. This gorgeous rattan bed is everything we need and more
Rattan is certainly having a moment in the world of home design and it's pretty easy to see why. It adds texture to pared back spaces and hints at that boho vibe none of us can get enough of.
Truth be told, we've had our eye on this John Lewis & Partners Rattan Bed Frame, £479.20, for a wee while, so when we spotted it featuring as part of John Lewis' Home Event, we knew we couldn't pass up the opportunity to purchase. Please pick one up too, we need the validation.
2. A sofa bed for less than £600? We're sold
Oh sofa beds, how we love you for making hosting friends and family in our tiny homes that little bit easier. Seriously, if you don't have a sofa bed already and are still forcing guests to sleep on a camp bed, air bed, or that lilo you picked up in Mallorca a good 10 years ago, you need to get yourself one. Pronto.
We spotted this John Lewis Show Wood Sofa Bed, £599.20, in their sale and just had to share it with you – particularly given that Christmas is just around the corner and you're bound to be inundated with family members and spontaneous sleepovers from that friend who can't handle their gin.

3. Got all out with statement lighting
As autumn rolls around, lots of us start thinking about how we light our homes. After all, who doesn't want that warm, cosy glow emanating throughout their space as the nights start drawing in?
We spotted a lot of gorgeous statement lights, but one that really caught our eye was this John Lewis & Partners Helix Chandelier Ceiling Light, £280, which would work just as well in a luxe space (as seen above) as it would in something a little more stripped back and simple.

4. Pick up all the cosy bedding
Remember what we were saying about switching up your lighting to make your home feel extra cosy this autumn? Well, the next step towards extreme hygge-ing is to invest in some quality bedding.
It doesn't get much better than what's on offer from John Lewis and this John Lewis & Partners Velvet Bedspread, £152, is sure to be a hit with home lovers.

5. Make the most of gorgeous – and super discounted –wallpapers
Statement wallpapers can be pricey, so we had to make you aware of the fact that there are so many stunning prints on sale at John Lewis, right now.
This Sanderson Woodland Toile Wallpaper, £50.40, is all kinds of gorgeous. Perfect for a dining room, cloakroom or even a stylish downstairs loo, it hints at the dark and atmospheric interiors trend, without making a space feel small and dingy.
