Someone Like You: 5 fabulous finds

Posted in: Uncategorized- Aug 23, 2013 43 Comments

 

 

Sometimes when I’m shopping I find the most absolutely perfect, can’t-live-without-it, must-have piece, only to look at the price tag and feel myself deflate like a three day old birthday balloon.  Then I hear Adele singing in my head, “Don’t worry I’ll fiiiiiind, someone like yooooooooouuuu…..” and I know, with a little time and patience, I will find something similar and within my price range.  Today I’ve put together five fabulous look-alikes for less:

 

 

You could spend $1,444 on this Petrie Sofa from Crate and Barrel, by would you when you get this Karlstad sofa from IKEA for $399?

 

  • alt= $1,444 Crate and Barrel
  • $399 $399 IKEA

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can you tell the difference between these two sheepskin rugs?  They are both 2×3 but one is genuine sheepskin from Overland and costs $159 while the other is faux and is only $19 at HomeDecorators.

 

  • $159 $159 Overland
  • alt= $19 Home Decorators

     

 

 

 

 

 

How about these gorgeous mother of pearl lamps? Would you pay $450 for the Regina Andrew from Macy’s? Or would you be content with the Pier1 look-alike for only $150

 

  • $450 $450 Macy's
  • $150 $150 Pier 1

     

 

 

 

 

 

I am in love with this faux bois table from Global Views, but at $2,248, I would probably make do with this $219 version from ebay.

  • $2,248 $2,248 Global Views
  • $219 $219 ebay

     

 

 

 

 

If you have the money in your kitchen renovation budget, I say definitely go for the genuine carrara marble at $19.95 a square foot. But if you’re looking for a more cost effective option, or want something a bit more durable and maintenance free, check out this high definition laminate from Wilsonart at just $2.15 a square foot.

 

  • $19.95 / sq. ft. $19.95 / sq. ft. Carrara Marble
  • $2.15 / sq. ft. $2.15 / sq. ft. Wilsonart High Definition Laminate

     

 

 

 

Do you typically splurge on the high end item right when you find it, or do you like to comparison shop? If you enjoyed this post here are a few others you might like:
