Expensive Furniture for Less

Written By: Rasy Sor

Have you heard of the phrase, “champagne taste on a beer budget?”   I have and unfortunately, I too, am afflicted with this.  I definitely have champagne test on a beer budget when it comes to interior design.

One of my favorite furniture shops is Room and Board.   I usually go there for design inspiration since I’m unable to afford most of their furniture.  Then, I discovered that Ikea had very similar styles for a lot less!    I know.  I know.   Most of you are thinking, Ikea is the last place you’d shop when it comes to your home; especially when you use to shop there to furnish the apartment that you shared with 5 roommates because let’s face it, ANYTHING goes with your 3rd roommate’s bean bag.   Ikea, in my opinion, has definitely come a long way.

Here is some furniture that I love at Room and Board that I also found at Ikea, but for A LOT less!

Portica Dining Table at Room and Board $1,209

 

Porsby Dining Table at Ikea $219 (Savings $990)

Bella Table Lamp at Room and Board $299

Jonsbo Egby Table Lamp at Ikea $19.99 (Savings $279)

Reese Sofa at Room and Board $3,099

Sater Sofa at Ikea $399 (Savings $2,700)

Tiffany Counter Stools at Room and Board $299

Glenn Counter Stools at Ikea $69.99 (savings $229)
