HORCHOW Living Room – Get the Look for Less with Inexpensive Pieces from your Favorite Stores!


I just love it when I get reader submissions for room makeovers! This one came from reader Liz, who absolutely fell in love with this Horchow Living Room…but wanted to find a way to re-create the look on a budget!


I started off with my favorite sofa…the Ektorp sofa from Ikea priced at $399. I say this every time…but the slipcovers make this sofa so easy to clean and take care of, plus, it comes in a variety of colors!


Next up was the Bobbin Chair priced at $429 from Pier 1. Now this is still a little rich for my blood, but compared to the $1599 version on Horchow, it’s a steal!

The rug was an easy find! I just went over to RUGS USA to find this Moroccan Cream & Blue 5×8 Area Rug on sale for 70% off and priced at $150 after discount! P.S. RugsUSA is my go-to for area rugs! They are always having some sort of ridiculous sale!


I was very suprised to find such an exact match for the McCarren Coffee Table priced at $1199 at Horchow! My version comes from World Market and it’s the Cameron Coffee Table priced at $229. You can’t beat that! It even has the same wooden slats underneath the table top!


I found these J. Hunt Ceramic Table Lamps priced at $47 at Target and decided that they are a great lower priced alternative to the Horchow lamps (which were priced at $1100 each, btw!!!)


The Ashton nesting tables priced at $129 from World Market are a little different than the ones in the Horchow inspiration room, but I think they still work and are priced right!


Last up, we nee some greenery in this room. So I headed over to Home Depot and picked up a couple of these Palm Plants for $20/each.

As I mentioned before, these prices are a little higher than I normally go, but in order to get a great knock-off room, I splurged on some pieces. The good news however, is that they are still a heck of a lot cheaper than the Horchow pieces!

If you’ve got a room that you’d like me to re-do, send over a picture or link to chrystie vachon AT gmail dot com.

    Once I was a college studentI wondered exactly
    how one should tackle this issue but I’d constantly encounter some
    questionable answers: go Google it or even ask a friend.
    What if my friends don’t have sufficient knowledge or expertise to assist me?
    What when I googled it multiple times and couldn’t find the answer?

    That is when posts such as this one can give proper advice on the
    problem. Yet more, thank you for your job!
