Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters’ grown up older sister, is best known for its uber-feminine, bohemian clothing. However, the store’s true gem is its interiors section which features whimsical and effervescent home decor. More vintage than va-va-voom, Anthropologie’s home items have shabby chic stylings that never look too “done.” I covet everything in the home collection except the steep prices. Fortunately, inexpensive knockoffs make it possible to bring the Anthropolgie look into your home without breaking the bank. Check out the knockoffs I found for three of Anthropologie’s signature home decor items: a ruched duvet cover, a shower curtain with cascading ruffles and latte bowls.
One of Anthropolgie’s signature home textiles is its ruched bedding collection. Anthropologie’s Nimbus Duvet Cover is a smooth expanse of cloud-soft jersey cotton that gives way to gathered borders, fluffy and full with ruffled volume. The twin duvet is $198 plus $13.95 for shipping, totaling out at $211.95. Pottery Barn Teen’s Ruched Duvet offers the same look for less. The twin duvet costs $99 plus $17 for shipping, totaling out at $116. In addition to white, the Pottery Barn Teen duvet comes in black, pink, purple, coffee, aqua and gray. The Anthropologie duvet and the Pottery Barn duvet are also available for purchase in a full/queen size for an additional cost.

One of Anthropologie’s most recognizable pieces of home décor is its multi-colored ruffled shower curtain. Anthropologie’s Flamenco Shower Curtain features ombre ruffles that cascade from white to aqua, with the festive rustle of a Spanish dancer’s skirt. It costs $118 plus $10.95 for shipping, totaling out at $128.95. Bed Bath & Beyond’s Ruffle Multi Shower Curtain is a lower-priced knockoff with similar layers of cascading ruffles in tones that range from white to sea greens and faded aqua. It costs $49.99 plus $7.99 for shipping, totaling out at $57.98. Both shower curtains measure 72 inches square and feature 12 buttonholes for curtain rings or clips.

Anthropologie seems to always stock latte bowls, a versatile basic for the kitchen. Anthropologie’s Latte bowls are sold in sets of 4 for $20 plus $6.95 shipping, totaling out at $26.95. A set of 8 Latte Bowls from BIA Cordon Bleu costs $27.95 on Amazon.com. If you wanted 8 latte bowls from Anthropologie, it would cost you $53.90. Both versions of the latte bowl are made of durable and microwave-safe porcelain. The Anthropologie bowls have a 16 ounce capacity, whereas the BIA Cordon Bleu bowls have an 18 ounce capacity. In addition to white, both brands feature a cupboard’s worth of colors.
