What Your Money Will Buy You: The Furniture Version
For those of you who know the site like the back of your hand, you’ll recall a list that was compiled a while back comparing the price differences of furniture from IKEA vs. Pottery Barn. Well, time has flown by us and we thought it was time to update the prices. We also thought we should include two other terrific resources: Target and Crate & Barrel. With that said, below you’ll find some pieces of furniture that we think are ‘must haves’ for your first apartment and what you should plan on spending for the same item at the four stores mentioned above.
** Please note that if you click on the store name under the specific room, it is a link that will take you to that store’s website and show you the specific item that we think is a great find from that store. (Note: If the store no longer carries the item, you may get the store’s home page.) Happy browsing!
Living Room: Sofa IKEA: $249 (Price varies depending on the fabric.) Target: $430 Crate & Barrel: $899 Pottery Barn: $1,050 (Price varies depending on the fabric and cushion fill.)
