13 Pottery Barn Dupes You’ll Love & Will Save You A Fortune

Spacejoy Rustic Modern Living Room

When thinking of aspirational home decor, we are hard-wired to turn to high-end retailer Pottery Barn for all of our interior design inspiration— but the price tags are not alluring. Pottery Barn is known for its rustic appeal- fine leathers, reclaimed woods, comfortable chairs, and layer accessories. 

Luckily, there are plenty of excellent resources for home decor that can help you achieve the same level of elevated design for a fraction of the price. When looking for Pottery Barn alternatives, focus on the shape of the piece and the textile of the item. Read on to see some of our favorite Pottery Barn dupes.

1. Dining Table

Pottery Barn Banks Dining TableWayfair Gertrude Solid Wood Dining Table

Pottery Barn Banks Dining Table (Starting at $2,500)

  • Seats up to 10
  • Made from a blend of solid poplar, MDF, and alder veneers
  • May have spaces between the planks due to the nature of its planked wood

Wayfair Gertrude Dining Table (Starting at $800)

  • Seats up to 8
  • Made of solid pine wood
  • The tabletop has a smooth topcoat to keep it protected from damage

Dining tables are a significant investment, especially considering how much time is spent around them. Spruce up a solid wood table with dramatic details like carved baluster posts. The Banks Dining Table from Pottery Barn can cost upwards of $2600, but the comparable Gertrude Solid Wood Dining Table available on Wayfair is almost half the price. 

2. Dining Chairs

Pottery Barn Dining ChairOverstock Dining Chair

Pottery Barn Thayer Tufted Wingback Dining Chair (Starting at $500 for each one)

  • Sold individually
  • Made of a kiln-dried solid wood frame
  • Requires unique cleaning products to maintain

Overstock Tays Rustic Linen Dining Chair (Starting at $400 for a set of 2)

  • Sold in pairs
  • Made of rubberwood and veneer frame
  • Easy to spot clean with a dry cloth

Complete your dining table with equally impressive chairs that offer plenty of comforts so you can sit around long after meals talking about love, life, and everything in between. Giving the classic wingback chair a stylish upgrade, the Thayer Tufted Wingback Dining Chair is a design choice you can’t possibly go wrong with.

A great alternative, however, is the Tays Rustic Linen Dining Chairs from Overstock. They come with almost the same design, but you can bag these at a much lower cost.

3. Bar Carts

Pottery Barn Skylar Bar CartWayfair Greyleigh Crete Bar Cart

Pottery Barn Skylar Bar Cart (From $499)

  • Only the bottom shelf is mirrored
  • No locking wheels
  • Up to 50-pound capacity

Wayfair Greyleigh Bar Cart (From $100)

  • Mirrored on both levels
  • Includes casters for easy mobility
  • Has locking wheels

A Pottery Barn home is incomplete without a stylish accent piece. We recommend bar carts as they add an extra layer of sophistication to the area. Use them to showcase your favorite liquors and mixers and even some decorative barware. This Pottery Barn Skylar Bar Cart offers clean and sophisticated lines. The brass detailing is sure to add an elegant touch to any room.

The Greyleigh Bar Cart from Wayfair provides the same clean lines, mirrored base, and brass finish for less than half of the Pottery Barn piece. We love a good score!

4. Wood Bed

Article Nera Walnut Bed (From $899)

Choosing a bed is one of the most important decisions you will make. It’s the one comfort you can rely on no matter what. Your bed should be an extension of your style and preferences. The chevron-designed reclaimed wood bed oozes refined sophistication. While more often than not, sophistication comes with a price tag, this is not one of those times!

The price of Article’s Nera Walnut King Bed is almost $500 less than Pottery Barn’s Hensley Reclaimed Wood Bed and provides the same mid-century modern elegance. Give your bedroom a distinguished character with this piece for less. 

5. Floor Lamp

You could pick out the best decor for your space, but with the wrong lighting, all your efforts are for naught. An understated floor lamp adds a chic visual element that will draw the eye up without adding bulk to the room. The easiest way to decorate like a Pottery Barn while on a budget is to pick up pieces like this beautiful Oak Tripod Floor Lamp by Living Spaces. This lamp offers you the same aesthetic while leaving your pockets unburnt at a few hundred dollars less than the Genoa Wooden Floor Lamp by Pottery Barn.

Hanging mirrors on the walls can give any room the illusion of added space and light. They don’t have to be intricate or complex to provide that added benefit, although a little extra oomph never hurt anyone! With its sophisticated gold-rimmed design, this Pottery Barn wall brings that benefit along with a subtle metallic accent. We found a similar style at Target.

You can’t go wrong with a well-placed mirror in any space, be it your dressing room or your bedroom. We highly recommend minimally designed mirrors like this one for their design versatility and understated style. The Martinsen Full Length Mirror from Wayfair mimics the stunning Berke oversized mirror from Pottery Barn at nearly one-sixth the price. 

8. Entryway Console

Pottery Barn is known for offering beautiful farmhouse pieces with a unique edge. We love the simple and clean lines of this rustic Malcolm Console Table. The Birchlane Cadence Console Table also offers a similar clean rustic top with the bonus of a bottom shelf.
