The Look For Less

Who doesn’t love a good dupe? Today I’m showing off some dynamic duos and terrific trios that are all quite similar, but with prices that are decidedly different. I’m also reviewing my kitchen table that looks very similar to a table 4 times the cost of what I paid.

Sleek and stylish, I’ve always admired these modern coffee tables. They fit in well with a variety of styles, not just modern decor.

How about this stunning pendant light? This is a situation where I chose to go with the real thing, due to the finish. We hung the Darlana in our (still empty) dining room, and while I love the look and don’t regret this purchase, I think I speak for most people when I say the price is so high it’s crazy.

Eying that coastal Serena and Lily Montara mirror? You’re not alone!

How about these woven baskets? We have several of the Serena & Lily baskets in our home and they are very well made- perhaps worth the cost if you think they will get kicked around. But if the price isn’t for you, I have also seen these (albeit a bit smaller) at TJ Maxx and Home Goods from time to time in the $60ish range too… they do go quickly. True story: my daughter once went flying down our full flight of hardwood stairs sitting in her Serena & Lily basket at about 60mph. She was unharmed and laughing, and obviously blamed her brother. It scared the living hell out of me! Important detail: the basket was unharmed. 😅

Looking for a round wood dining table? Not wanting to drop $3k on a kitchen table from Restoration Hardware just yet? 😉 How about these options below?

Restoration Hardware Salvaged Wood Round Dining Trestle: Splurge or Save? Knock Off Alternatives

Salvaged Wood Trestle Dining Table / Clara Round Dining Table / Magaw Solid Wood Dining Table

I own the Wayfair version of the Restoration Hardware table - the Magaw Solid Wood Dining table seen above. At 60” across it seats all 6 of us comfortably; I’m not sure why they show it with 4 chairs in the advertisement. I’ve had it for about a month now and so far I could not love it more! The reviews speak for themselves. Big bang for your buck right here!
