West Elm offers stunning handcrafted tribal and Moroccan rugs, but the competitive prices offered by Rugs USA and their endless amount of identical rugs won us over! Despite a higher regular price, we know that historically you can always snag a great deal from this alternative retailer.

2. Upgrade a bedroom with this stunning and timeless mid century bed frame.

My Hip sidekick, Lina, recently purchased this mid-century modern bed from…The Home Depot! Since her teen son needed a new bed frame and his room doubles as a guest room, they wanted to have a sophisticated bed to update the space. Despite being about $1,000 less (not including delivery fees and tax), you won’t even be compromising on quality because the one at The Home Depot is also made of 100% solid wood. As a bonus, it even comes in two other colors. 🤩

“We almost purchased the mid-century bed frame from West Elm as I adore this style bed so much, but I wanted to wait and see if it went on sale. To my surprise, I found this identical bed at The Home Depot and even a coordinating nightstand! We purchased both the bed and nightstand for under $500 shipped since we had a 15% off coupon from the mail! I’m so impressed with the quality of the wood and has exactly the West Elm vibe I was after. The wood even smells great too! Considering we spent about a third of the amount, I’m totally in love with this purchase!” – Lina, Hip sidekick

Love the bedding Lina has on her West Elm-inspired bed?

Her zip closure duvet set is available on Amazon in numerous colors and the prices start under $40! 😱 She raved about them so much I just bought two sets in the charcoal-checked pattern for my boy’s room. 🤩

3. Mid-century modern dressers

Modern mid-century storage solutions don’t have to break the bank. We love this Wayfair find for over $400 less than the cost of the West Elm furniture piece and it even comes in five different colors. Better yet, our identical dresser is still made of solid wood and has much more storage space with a wider silhouette.

4. Add some glam to your home with these chic gold metal indoor planters.

These gold standing planters will add a chic and fun vibe to any modern, eclectic, or boho home. It’s over 50% less than West Elm’s most popular medium size and if you’re looking for something slightly bigger, they even have another similar gold planter for less than $45.

Look at this happy plant baby! 🤩

Now all you have to decide is which plants you’ll add to your gorgeous new piece. 😉 This plant above is a Tradescantia plant species in case you’re looking to replicate the whole look. 🥰

5. Moroccan leather poufs are functional, practical, and will add the perfect touch of boho.

If these aren’t the most identical poufs you’ve ever seen, I’m not sure what they are! Scoop up one of these gorgeous Moroccan leather poufs available in brown, white, blue, pink, silver, black, or red for a fraction of the cost of the West Elm option!

6. Grab this oversized mirror that will make your space look twice as large.

These stunners are sure to make any room feel grander and we love how there are different ways you can hang or lean this Home Depot find. They sure are nailing home decor lately, aren’t they? Dare we say we love the Home Depot mirror even more? 😏🤩

7. A Scandinavian-inspired dipped stool will be perfect for small home decor.

Get stocked and ready to get this party started! We could totally envision either of these cute, gold bar carts at our next gathering (but we’re loving that Overstock price tag vs the West Elm decor cost)!

9. Chunky mug handles are trending and will make your love having coffee at home again.

Your morning coffee shouldn’t feel mundane, which is why we think you need one of these fun mugs in your life! As a bonus, you’ll get free shipping at Etsy when you buy two of these mugs and we love the more contrasting colors even more than West Elm’s. 😍
