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:
Notice the irregularities in the pattern, almost like a bent chain link fence. They have a less “distressed” version as well.
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.
Retails for $599-$1099
West Elm offers so many versions I lost count. Here’s one of the more irregular ones.
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.
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…
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:
Retails for $95 – $1099
Here’s one last version from Joss and Main;
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?
