Month in Review: March 2015

Inspired by Bliss at Home’s Month in Review posts, I wanted to start doing my own! With 20+ posts a month, I’m sure it’s easy to get behind and don’t want anyone to miss out on a post. I hope this will be a fun, quick way to get caught up on all the Studio Style Blog features from the past 30 days.

Look for Less: English Roll Arm Sofa

This might just be my favorite Look for Less post yet! I recently found a great low-priced alternative for the classic English Roll Arm Sofa.

Look for Less: Hammered Metal Table Lamp

I wrote about the hammered metal design trend awhile ago, and recently discovered these two lamps in a similar style. They are both simple yet glamorous and would work well in almost any space. The only difference is the price point! Check out these two great finds and where to shop below:

1. Hammered Pot Brushed Nickel Table Lamp, Lamps Plus, $149.99


2. Asele Table Lamp, Silver, Ikea, $59.99

Look for Less: Leather Office Chair

Next up in the Look for Less series… these stylish leather office chairs. Office furniture doesn’t have to be ugly or boring! There are plenty of great designer chairs out there, and even better, a few budget-friendly options. I’ve always loved the Herman Miller chairs, but the price tag is a bit shocking. Fortunately, I scoured around the internet and found a very similar office chair at Z Gallerie for a fraction of the price!


1. Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair, White, Herman Miller, $1529



2. Malcom Office Chair, White, Z Gallerie, $259



Look for Less: Midcentury Modern Nightstand

I love all things Mid Century Modern, and these pieces are no exception. Though one is a nightstand and the other is a side table, they can be used for interchangeable function. Both are quite similar in style but very different in price!

1. Mid Century Modern Nightstand, West Elm, $299


2. Mid Century Modern Side Table, Target, $97.28

Look for Less: White Campaign Style Desk

I haven’t done a look for less post in a long time, so I figured I would jump back in that category again! For all other posts in the look for less series, click here.

1. Crate and Barrel has this Spotlight White Desk for $599


2. Major deal alert: World Market has this very similar Josephine Desk on sale right now for only $159.99 (orig. $199.99, also a great price)


Happy shopping and I’ll have more look for less posts coming up soon!
