Somehow, it's already that time of year: back-to-school season. For students going away to college, this means more than packing just a backpack with some pencils: we're talking dorm decor and bedspreads, and maybe some furniture if they're going to be living in an off-campus apartment.

Our partners at Houzz are having a sale on their site's bestsellers, which include some great back-to-school essentials. Here are some of our favorites — visit their website to view the full selection of what's on sale.

We hope you love the items below as much as we did! GateHouse Media may collect a share of sales from links on this page.
