I am amazed over and over again at the prices companies feel they can charge for items that grace our homes. However, just as there are many over-priced items available on the Internet, through catalogs, and via storefronts, there are just as many websites that obviously believe good quality merchandise can be affordable. And while they may offer some high-end, high-priced choices, the number of items that are obvious knockoffs make us turn to these sites frequently. Home Decorators is one of those websites. Here are some beautiful side table knockoffs the folks at Home Decorators have produced:
First up, a lovely brass Greek Fret Side Table, brought to us by Plantation. This 28" diameter table comes complete with antiqued-mirrored top and a price tag of $1,095.00 with $98.55 shipping. However, if you change the top out for a darker tone, you can find a beautiful knockoff of this piece at Home Decorators. The Greek Key Table in large is 30" in diameter and sells for just $179.00 with $25.00 shipping.
Savings: $989.55 or 83 %
The industrial look is one that is making a huge comeback to the furniture industry. Pieces such as William-Sonoma's Murray Side Table are rugged yet appealing. The price, however, leaves something to be desired. Coming in at $695.00 plus $65.00 shipping, it's worth looking around for a knockoff. Again, Home Decorators has seen the demand in the market for this industrial styling and has given us the Holbrook End Table. Lifting the frame off the floor, they are charging just $259.00 plus $55.00 shipping for this near replica.
Savings: $466.00 or 59%
The nailhead design is another element that is taking hold in chairs, sofas, beds, and side tables alike. Layla Grayce has the Nora Limed Oak 3-Tier Table by Worlds Away on their website for $725.00. This three-legged piece is simple, yet chic. To me, however, the knockoff at Home Decorators is a little more stable, adding a fourth leg to the construction. Their Nailhead End Table is 2 inches shorter at 24″ but sells for just $289.00 with $15.00 shipping.
Savings: $441.00 or 59%
And finally, there is the simple look that can be used in just about any location in the home, from the powder room to the covered back porch to the living room. The Bristol Teak Side Table is sold by Wayfair for just $184.99 with free shipping–not a bad price at all considering some of the other options out there! But once again, Home Decorators has been able to take a sleek piece of furniture and provide us with an equally-sleek knockoff. To save us money, Home Decorators offers us the Martha Stewart Living Lake Carolina End Table. This wood table is made from eucalyptus instead of teak, and sells for $59.00 plus $12.00 shipping. Same design, different wood, and the savings come out at 62%.
