13 Ways To Get Pottery Barn Home Decor Style For Less

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 as alluring. Pottery Barn is known for their rustic appeal- fine leathers, reclaimed woods, comfortable chairs and ability to 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 textile of the item. Read on to see some of our favorite Pottery Barn dupes.

Dining Table

Dining tables are a major 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 

Dining Chairs

Complete your dining table with equally impressive chairs that offer plenty of comfort 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 of $375 for 2! 

Bar Carts

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 offers the same clean lines, mirrored base, and brass finish for less than half of the Pottery Barn piece. We love a good score!

Reclaimed Wood Bed

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 pricetag, this is not one of those times! The price of Article’s Nera Walnut King Bed is almost $1,000 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.

You could pick out the best of 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 Pottery Barn while on a budget is to pick up pieces like this beautiful Oak Tripod Floor Lamp by Living Spaces. At a few hundred dollars less than the Genoa Wooden Floor Lamp by Pottery Barn, this lamp offers you the same aesthetic while leaving your pockets unburnt. 

Wall Mirror

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! This Pottery Barn wall with its sophisticated gold-rimmed design brings that benefit along with a subtle metallic accent. We found a comparable style at Target.

Add a few accent pieces around this area and maybe a houseplant or two for a sweet #OOTD picture spot. 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 its 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. 

Entryway Console

Your entryway decor sets the tone for the rest of your home, and a simple and sleek console table like this one will allow you to add design accents like frames, baskets, or houseplants with ease. 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 added bonus of a bottom shelf.
