Have you ever paid a visit to the gorgeous and overpriced store Design Within Reach and thought to yourself, “Yeah right! More like Design OUT OF Reach!” I searched around the store and picked out some favorite items, then came up with similar finds to show you that you don’t have to pay a lot to get what you want. I found so many affordable look-a-likes that I decided to focus on chairs, with more to come later…

Can you tell which of the above chairs is the deal? The first one is the Diamond Lounge Chair by Harry Bertoia, which retails for $877. At $199.99, the one below it is a steal – the Rupert Chrome Steel Chair from Overstock.com (by the way, Overstock offers a flat shipping rate of $2.95 for almost everything, cheap!).

Love this Barcelona Chair (above) but can’t afford the $5000 price tag? Why not get this handsome doppleganger for only $131.99 instead:

The red Egg Chair below will set you back a whopping $6000…

…but you can get a similar one in gray or orange from Ikea for $399


I love this post.
