A High Low Find for Every Room in the Home
I actually experienced my first heartbreak a few years ago when I fell head over heels for a flawless, hand-dyed Chesterfield sofa. Once I discovered the price, I knew it would be years before we would be together. As a lifestyle editor, this kind of heartache is hardly rare; I see beautiful furnishings every single day that I’d love to get my hands on but can’t. Luckily, stylish and budget-savvy gal Sabrina Soto, host of The High/Low Project, has scouted the trendiest pieces of the season and found their lovely — and wallet-friendly — counterparts. From cutting boards and pendant lighting to area rugs and throw pillows, Sabrina has found an affordable match for your favorite designer pieces.
Welcome guests this holiday season with a colorful, ornate area rug. The intricate pattern on the companyc.com rug drives the price up to $515 (left). But this similar botanical wool rug from rugsusa.com features less detail, making it a beautiful price of $168 (right).
For those who can’t get enough of marble, here’s a sleek coffee table you’re going to love. Splurge on the Italian marble-top table with a stainless steel frame for $900 at dwr.com (left), or save yourself some dough and opt for gray-veined marble at a third of the cost ($329) from cb2.com (right).
Culinary pros will love easy access from a hanging pot rack and the stunning copper and stainless-steel pans. The only true difference between the high and low pot racks is the chain links. Splurge on the stainless steel cuisinart.com pot rack for $160 (left), or go for the similar buy at walmart.com for just $66 (right). For a 10-piece M’150s copper and stainless steel cookware set from mauviel.com, you’re going to pay $1,985 (left). But, if you go for the Tri-Ply copper and stainless steel 10-piece set from calphalon.com, you’ll save more than $1,500 (right).
Warm, metallic hues are hot this season, so add some flair to your dining room table just in time for the holidays. Pick up this velvet upholstered chair from crateandbarrel.com for $449 (left), or grab its tufted twin for just $150 at pier1.com (right).
Dress up your bedroom side tables with neutral glass lamps that still bring in a splash of color. The glass lamp in wheat from rejuvenation.com can be yours for $590 (left), but its slightly darker counterpart is only $120 from angelohome.com (right).
Say goodbye to contractor-grade bathroom mirrors for good. These curvaceous, vintage-style beauties are perfect for a powder room or for doubling up in a master bath. For $361, you can splurge on the Art Deco mirror with gold rosettes from casa.com (left). For a similar shape, try this wooden mirror at kichlerlightingmart.com for $198 (right).
It’s finally time to curl up by the fire and roast marshmallows. If you’re looking for something that requires a little less manual labor than building a classic fire, then a gas fire pit is the way to go. Splurge on this slate and marble-top gas fireplace from efireplacestore.com for a whopping $772 (left), or opt for the similar alternative from samsclub.com for only $150 (right). Happy fall, indeed!
