Restoration Hardware Deconstructed Shelter Arm Chair

So Restoration Hardware has this whole deconstructed thing going on. Exposed framing, visible tacks with scraps of fabric still caught in them, that kind of thing.  I'm not sure that I "get" it but other retailers are starting to pick up on the trend.  They aren't taking it quite as far as RH, but you can definitely tell that they are imitating the RH Deconstructed line.  Let's take a look at one of their efforts.

First the Restoration Hardware version:

This LAL is from Overstock

Decor Look Alikes | Overstock Creston Beige Linen Reclaimed Finish Arm Chair

Creston Beige Linen Reclaimed Finish Arm Chair

Personally, I prefer the less deconstructed look alike.  How about you?

Everybody’s Doing It: Ivory Criss Cross/ Diamond/ Moroccan Rug

Sometimes the look alikes get a little out of control.  This is one of those times.  I first noticed this design from Restoration Hardware. Since then it has popped up on all the usual LAL havens but what surprised me the most was that I'm now seeing versions on the other brand-name sites as well.  Let's take a look at this oft copied rug.

There are actually several Restoration Hardware rugs that look very similar to one another.

Here are two of the versions from RH:

Decor Look Alikes | Restoration Hardware Arlequin Rug

Arlequin Rug

$2295- $13495

Notice the irregularities in the pattern, almost like a bent chain link fence.  They have a less "distressed" version as well.

Decor Look Alikes | Restoration Hardware Dara Rug

Dara Rug

Retails for $1695 - $11995

Here's aversion from Pottery Barn. Now don't be thrown off by the zigzag pattern on the ends.

They are just trying to get you to think that it is an "original" design. Focus on the middle.  Foooocus.

Decor Look Alikes | Pottery Barn Beni Ourain

Beni Ourain Rug

Retails for $599-$1099

West Elm offers so many versions I lost count.  Here's one of the more irregular ones.

Decor Look Alikes | West Elm Bordered Oversized Diamond Souk

Found Moroccan Rug -Bordered Oversized Diamond Souk

Retails for $2499

I honestly don't know where they "found" this, unless they were looking in the Restoration Hardware outlet.

Well, that was quite a showing from the big-boy brand names.  Let's check in with the made-for-real-people stores:

Target puts on a great show with this version.

Decor Look Alikes | Target Threshold Criss Cross Fleece Rug

Threshold Fleece Criss Cross Rug

Retails for $129.99 - $249.99

Ahh, that's more like it!  Fluffy and diamond-y and cheap!

Who else want to play?  Look-y what Wayfair has to offer...

Decor Look Alikes | Wayfair Shag Brown Plush Rug

Shag Brown Plush Rug

Retails for $134.28 - $$464.67

And we can't forget to check in with the flash sale sites!

One King's Lane offers this version:

Sanne Shag Rug

Retails for $95 - $1099

Here's one last version from Joss and Main;

Diamante Rug

Diamante Rug

Retails for $81.95

Am I the only one who is willing to bet that those last to are, in fact, the exact same rug?

Well, there you have it. I told you it could get out of hand!

Which was your favorite?  What do you think of all this creative "sharing" when it comes to home decor and furnishings?
