I actually experienced my first heartbreak a few years ago when I fell head over heels for a flawless, hand-dyed Chesterfield sofa. Once I discovered the price, I knew it would be years before we would be together. As a lifestyle editor, this kind of heartache is hardly rare; I see beautiful furnishings every single day that I’d love to get my hands on but can’t. Luckily, stylish and budget-savvy gal Sabrina Soto, host of The High/Low Project, has scouted the trendiest pieces of the season and found their lovely — and wallet-friendly — counterparts. From cutting boards and pendant lighting to area rugs and throw pillows, Sabrina has found an affordable match for your favorite designer pieces.


High Low Area Rugs

Company C | Rugs USA

Welcome guests this holiday season with a colorful, ornate area rug. The intricate pattern on the companyc.com rug drives the price up to $515 (left). But this similar botanical wool rug from rugsusa.com features less detail, making it a beautiful price of $168 (right).

Living Room

High Low Coffee Tables


For those who can’t get enough of marble, here’s a sleek coffee table you’re going to love. Splurge on the Italian marble-top table with a stainless steel frame for $900 at dwr.com (left), or save yourself some dough and opt for gray-veined marble at a third of the cost ($329) from cb2.com (right).


High Low Pot Racks

Cuisinart, Mauviel | Walmart, Calphalon

Culinary pros will love easy access from a hanging pot rack and the stunning copper and stainless-steel pans. The only true difference between the high and low pot racks is the chain links. Splurge on the stainless steel cusinart.com pot rack for $160 (left), or go for the similar buy at walmart.com for just $66 (right). For a 10-piece M’150s copper and stainless steel cookware set from mauviel.com, you’re going to pay $1,985 (left). But, if you go for the Tri-Ply copper and stainless steel 10-piece set from calphalon.com, you’ll save more than $1,500 (right).

Dining Room

High Low Dining Room Chairs

crateandbarrel.com | pier1.com

Warm, metallic hues are hot this season, so add some flair to your dining room table just in time for the holidays. Pick up this velvet upholstered chair from crateandbarrel.com for $449 (left), or grab its tufted twin for just $150 at pier1.com (right).


High Low Table Lamps

rejuvenation.com | angelohome.com

Dress up your bedroom side tables with neutral glass lamps that still bring in a splash of color. The glass lamp in wheat from rejuvenation.com can be yours for $590 (left), but its slightly darker counterpart is only $120 from angelohome.com (right).


High Low Mirrors

casa.com | kichlerlightingmart.com

Say goodbye to contractor-grade bathroom mirrors for good. These curvaceous, vintage-style beauties are perfect for a powder room or for doubling up in a master bath. For $361, you can splurge on the Art Deco mirror with gold rosettes from casa.com (left). For a similar shape, try this wooden mirror at kichlerlightingmart.com for $198 (right).

Outdoor Space

High Low Fire Pits

efireplacestore.com | samsclub.com

It’s finally time to curl up by the fire and roast marshmallows. If you’re looking for something that requires a little less manual labor than building a classic fire, then a gas fire pit is the way to go. Splurge on this slate and marble-top gas fireplace from efireplacestore.com for $772 (left), or opt for the similar alternative from samsclub.com for a whopping $150 (right). Happy fall, indeed!

    When someone writes an article he/she keeps the
    idea of a user in his/her mind that how a user
    can understand it. Therefore that’s why this piece
    of writing is amazing. Thanks!

    I may not be able to afford the entire "low" version, but Sabrina shows me how to find or make items comparable to some of the "high" versions. As a retiree, I have the time and interest to do some ferreting.
