By now, Burrow should well be on your radar. The brand’s dialed in on clever, uncompromising furniture for modern life, and it has broken the outdated furniture industry model by delivering fast and free to your door. To pair with its modular, tool-free assembly furniture, Burrow recently put together a line of throws and pillows.

The four collections of pillows and throws are each inspired by a specific lifestyle and aesthetic. And they’re also responsibly manufactured, being both Fair Trade and GoodWeave certified. Comfortable and stylish, Burrow went the extra mile to heighten your couch time as the weather cools down and you start spending more time indoors.

Zwilling Kitchen Knives
Save Up to 65% These knives, for the most part, are ugly. That is to say they’ve been marked as “visually imperfect” and thus sold way below the SRP. Zwilling assures that this won’t be a problem: “Product may have minor visual imperfections or a damaged box. Though this will not affect the product’s performance.” A whole host of blade sizes and styles are available in the clearance area, and we’ve picked some of the best below.


Italian-Made Clarks Desert Boots
Save 58%:Like many shoe brands, UK-based brand Clarks moved its manufacturing overseas in the mid-aughts. For over a decade, the brand’s iconic Desert Boots were made in countries including Vietnam and India, but recently the brand has focused on bringing production back to Europe. While Clarks is now manufacturing again in the UK, it is also building high-end versions of a few styles in Italy. You can pick up a pair of these Italian-made Desert Boots right now at Nordstrom Rack for only $80. That’s 58 percent lower than list price and $50 less than the brand’s entry-level Desert Boots — hard to argue with that. — John Zientek
