Anthropologie Flamenco Shower Curtain

 We are continuing with our week of Anthropologie look alikes.  By the end, our new Pinterest board won't be so empty, and maybe, just maybe, we will have gained enough new Pinterest followers to put us over the 4000 mark.

I've seen lots of DIY versions of this Anthro shower curtain, so I thought the bigger challenge would be to find some good retail options.  Sometimes you feel like being hunched over a sewing machine for hours, finishing with a deep sense of satisfaction.  And sometimes you really need some retail therapy but can't afford the Anthropologie hourly rate.

Most Pinned LALs #3: Restoration Hardware Churchill Leather Chair and Ottoman

I can't believe we are already at #3 for our Most Pinned LALs countdown!  And we finally have a non-Pottery Barn look alike to share.  Coming in at number three is the Restoration Hardware Churchill Leather Chair and Ottoman.  This was another fairly recent post so everything is still available and the prices haven't changed since the original pin.

Set Retails for $2940-$3730, plus shipping

The LAL is from Wayfair

Elle Leather Chair and Ottoman

Set retails for $3008, including shipping

The real savings in the LAL is in the shipping costs, which I don't talk about too often when making my match-ups.  I thought I would give you the full break down on this one for the review.  The shipping costs for Restoration Hardware furniture are based on your distance from one of their stores and go from $149- $500.  Smaller items, like the ottoman can be shipped via a standard carrier like UPS and the rates are determined by the item price.  In this case the ottoman falls into the highest price category (over $500) and would cost $50.00 to ship.  So depending on where you are located, this set would cost an additional $200 -$550 to ship.  So the free shipping on the LAL can add up to some significant savings.

As an extra bonus, I found another LAL for you, and it's a good one!

This is from the Comfortable Couch Company


Winston Chair

Leather Options start at $1649 (just the chair)

and there are many leather options at that, more than Restoration Hardware offers.  Check it out in green!

I wish I had a room that could pull this off!  It just makes me happy to look at.

Doesn't it need a Great Dane laying next to it?  He could be named Winston:)

There are only 2 LALs left in our countdown.  Do you think Pottery Barn match-ups will continue to reign supreme?

Have you bought any of the look alikes we've featured? Do you have a room (and majestic dog) for this green leather LAL?

Flash Sale LALs: One Kings Lane Indoor/Outdoor Rug Roundup

Today we're checking out One Kings Lane latest flash sale collection of Indoor/Outdoor Rugs.  I spotted this classic repeating tile pattern and knew I had seen it somewhere before.

Kate Outdoor Rug, Red/Beige

Kate Outdoor Rug - Red/Beige

Retails for $25-$345

See.  Doesn't it look so familiar?  This has become such a popular pattern it's on everything home decor lately.  The border and color set this one apart from the masses and looky what I found at Ballard Designs...

Allover Trellis Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Allover Trellis Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Retails for $89 - $429

It was like a reverse look alike search, and such a sweet victory!  Let's compare a specific size so you can get a better idea of the savings.  The upper price on each of these is for a 9x12 size rug.  So Ballard Designs is $429 vs $345 at One Kings Lane,a savings of $84.  That's not bad, but it's not great either.  I was sure we could do better.  So I gave it a go at Overstock and this is what I came up with...

Poolside Green/Beige Indoor/Outdoor Polypropylene Rug

Retails for $32.99 - $259.99

Having trouble with the color change?  Here, let me help...

Vale Outdoor Rug, Green/Beige

One Kings Lane Vale Outdoor Rug Green/Beige

Retails for $25 - $345

Another OKL version.  Same price and pattern just minus that border and with a new name.  Once again, the biggest size for the OKL and Overstock versions is 9x12 and the price comparison gets a little better $345 vs $259.99.  A savings of $85.  Almost exactly the same savings as the Ballard Designs and One Kings Lane match-up.

So, if we compare the pricey Ballard rug with our Overstock find, it's a savings of $169.   Now that's more like it!  I'm sure if you kept looking, you could find even more look alikes for this rug.  If you spot one let us know in the comments!
