Bamboo, rattan and similar wood style chairs are really big right now in the design world. I recently found two chairs of similar styles with vastly different price points. Check out the look for less below.
While in search of round, mid-century inspired dining tables for my new dining area plan, I came across two gorgeous options. Of course, the perfect table from West Elm has all three of my favorite elements: marble, wood and brass…. but it comes with a big price tag. Unless they decide to send one my way or have a random 50% off sale, (West Elm, are you listening?) this table won’t be making its way into my apartment anytime soon. I did find a very similar alternative for less than half the price on Overstock so I thought it would make a good look for less feature! Check out both below.
1. Reeve Mid-Century Dining Table, $1199, West Elm
2. Canvas White Wood Dining Table, $496.99, Overstock
2. Cafe Dining Chair, Target, $129.99 for two chairs
So if you were to get a minimum of four chairs for a dining table on the small side, it would be a total of $436 at Crate and Barrel and $259.98 at Target. Can’t go wrong with that deal. I love this look so much that I almost want to sell my current dining table and chairs and swap it out for a white tulip table paired with the black cafe chairs… More on that later.
It’s that time again! Can’t believe it’s already June. Here’s a wrap up of the last 31 days on Studio Style Blog. Last month was full of changes and new additions to the apartment, so check out this recap if you missed anything!
It’s been awhile since my last Look for Less post, so I figured I would share a recent discovery (that’s also a great deal and an item on my wishlist). These gilt inspired full length mirrors work well in any space and are an easy way to add style and depth. Especially beneficial for small-space dwellers, mirrors are the perfect way to trick the eye into making any space feel much larger and more elegant. See a great example of this in Holly’s London studio apartment tour.
Room dividers are a great way to separate a studio apartment and can also add a fun design element to your space. However, they usually fall into two categories: cheap and ugly // chic and expensive…
Thanks to a little digging, I found a hybrid– chic and affordable! I adore this West Elm piece below, but the sticker shock is too much to handle for a simple room divider. Wayfair has a very similar replica for much less!
1. Patterned Nailhead Upholstered Screen, $699, West Elm (currently on sale for $299 but still more expensive than the screen below)
2. Diamond Detail Three Panel Room Divider, $273.99, Wayfair
I’ve had gold flatware on my wish list for several years now, and it’s a great new twist on an old classic. Obviously, one would need many sets, so the price can rack up quite quickly. West Elm had the market cornered for awhile in the gold flatware department, but other stores are now starting to catch on to the trend and offer less expensive versions.
