Stores Similar To Pottery Barn And Where Find Affordable Pottery Barn Style Furniture
I listed 14 stores to get the look of Pottery Barn for less!
Let’s not pretend like we all don’t like shopping. I obviously love shopping for home decor (unfortunately for my husband). But I also love finding deals and I despise paying full price for anything and I really despise paying for shipping.
I made three trips the the World Market that is 40 minutes from my house to bring home our new sectional…that’s how much I hate paying for shipping.
I also love to find designer dupes or look alike items that are a fraction of the cost of the more expensive item.
This post kind of piggy backs off of another post I wrote about where to find affordable home decor.
I haven’t re-read that post in a while so there is a good chance there might be some overlap so I’ll apologize now.
And like I do with most of my posts, I like to start with one of my favorites…

Pottery Barn Competitors
1.) World Market
If I had to pick one store that I would recommend for Pottery Barn style furniture it would be World Market.
If you know me, you know I love World Market. It has been my go to for the past 16 years. The majority of my furniture is from World Market. I recently just purchased my sectional from World Market.
It’s a modular sectional so you can piece together your sectional anyway you like.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the prices at World Market cannot be beat and especially when they have one of their furniture sales. And I feel like they have these often.
I purchased my sectional during one of their sales.
That black sofa table is also from World Market but is 16 years old. It still looks brand new.

They have more than just furniture too. From baskets to chandeliers they have it all. I will be a fan forever.
Here are some of my favorites:
Another store that is slowly becoming a favorite of mine is Wayfair. I absolutely cannot say enough good things about their customer service. That alone has me a life long customer.
Just a warning…you can go down a big black never ending Wayfair hole if you are not careful. I found my kitchen island pendants on Wayfair
I think I looked at 562,548 pendants first though.
Wayfair is also a great place to find furniture like Pottery Barn.
Oh Amazon..talk about a black hole. I think I wrote three different posts about home decor from Amazon.
I love their Stone and Beam line. They have everything from furniture to home decor accessories.
I have purchased so much decor accessories from Amazon. I think the majority of my bookshelf decor is from Amazon. All of my favorites should be linked in my Amazon storefront for you.
IKEA is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shop for affordable home decor. There are some people that absolutely love IKEA (me) and some people who hate IKEA (my husband).
I have no idea what there is to hate though.
We do have their infamous Ektorp sofa and for the love of all things guacamole you cannot beat their price and it looks so much like the Pottery Barn slipcovered sofa and for 1/4th of the price.
Ok, maybe it is not as comfortable as the Pottery Barn sofa but who cares??? Well, maybe my husband does.
You can see more of my thoughts about our Ektorp sofa here. (The Ektorp is slowly being discontinued and being replaced with the Uppland Sofa which is still so much more affordable than any furniture at Pottery Barn)
And you can see why I love IKEA so much in this post.
I don’t care what my husband says, I am an IKEA fan for life.
HomeGoods or TJ Maxx are other great places to find some Pottery Barn look alikes.
If you are shopping in store and you see something you like, grab it because it will be gone tomorrow.
Trust me, I know.
6.) Ballard Designs
I do not talk a ton about Ballard Designs around here because it normally does not fit into my (husband’s) budget. But there are times when Ballard has some good sales so I like to check out their site every once in a while.
I get so many questions about these pendants in my kitchen in our old house every time I share this picture.
I got them at Ballard years ago but they still have them. I waited until they were on sale and then pounced.
It’s how I roll
Not that I could have before.
8.) Nordstrom Home
Again, I waited until they had a sale going on. If you are shopping online at Nordstrom Rack, I would highly recommend not twiddling your thumbs if you see something you like. It never lasts long online
Yes I am comparing Pottery Barn with Walmart. But have you seen the Better Homes and Garden line at Walmart?!?!
And as you guessed it, I wrote a blog post about my favorites from Walmart. I will have to say that their online selection is much better than what they offer in stores.
10.) Hobby Lobby
I will not lie when I say I love Hobby Lobby. Yes, one can feel overwhelmed when stepping foot inside of there but I find so much good stuff. Some stuff is not my style but some stuff is on point and can mimic some high end decor pieces for a fraction of the cost.
Yep, I wrote a blog post about Hobby Lobby
11.) Pottery Barn Teen
OK, this might sound like a dumb suggestion but sometimes you can find “non teen looking” home decor at PB Teen for less than what you might find on PB’s website
Let’s take this linen flush mount for example on PB Teen’s website.
Here is her more expensive sister from Pottery Barn
Sometimes you just need to take a look…and don’t think I haven’t looked at Pottery Barn Baby for our house too.
12.) West Elm
I cannot say I shop at West Elm often but when I can, I like to take a trip to their outlets. If you have one near you, I highly recommend going. We found my husband’s recliner there for close to 70% off it’s original price
13.) H&M Home
How can I almost forget about H&M?? I used to stalk them. Well, technically I still do. I love their pillows covers.
Anytime anyone asks me where to find affordable pillow covers, I send them to H&M. And once a month or two, I will check out their decoration section just to see what’s new.
I just purchased new curtains for my dining room from H&M. I love these curtains more than I thought I would. They are a linen blend and come with pleating tape already sewn on so you can make these curtains look so much more expensive than they are.
Curtains like this at Pottery Barn would cost you an arm and a leg. (FYI…I used two curtain panels for each side to make them look fuller.)
You can see more on how I pinch pleat my curtains here.
14.) Urban Outfitters Home
Similar to H&M (in my opinion) is Urban Outfitters Home. They kind of remind me more of a budget friendly Anthropologie.
(PS…I wrote an Anthropologie mirror dupe post just a little bit ago)
Back to Urban Outfitters…like I said, they are more on the funky side with their home decor but they are worth checking out.
They might not be the most budget friendly place to find Pottery Barn dupes but they have some more younger/modern looking pieces than Pottery Barn.
Like this fun floor lamp.
Some tips to get discounts on your home decor
A quick trick I have done over the years to help save money on some of my home decor (or anything really). Once you find that item you love, head over to Gift Card Granny or Cardpool and look to see if you can find discounted gift card(s) for the store you are shopping for. I do most of my shopping online so I look for e-gift cards.
You should get an email almost instantly after you purchase the gift card with the code you will use for your online purchase. I have also purchased a few gift cards at the same time from the same store if they are available to get more of a discount.
And if you want more of a savings, you can also check out eBay and look for coupons. I recently found a coupon from Pottery Barn to save 20% and get free shipping. The coupon cost me $2.99 and I saved so much more than that on my order using the coupon. The seller was able to email me the coupon code to use online. Make sure you read any fine print.
Always look for a promo code online. RetailMeNot is a great place to look for promo codes.
(If you like these little tips, sign up for my newsletter. I have been trying to send out a Friday Finds newsletter when I can (don’t worry, I won’t spam you) with all kinds of sales and coupon codes I can find for that week.)
Lastly, here are a few FAQ I get regarding Pottery Barn
Is Pottery Barn still popular?
Yes, it is. It will always be “popular”. Pottery Barn offers timeless and classic home decor and furniture that the average person can relate to. It’ll always be my ol’ faithful store I visit every now and then.
Some pieces will be a bit more trendy but for the most part if you want something that is timeless and will last you through all of the trends, Pottery Barn is your store.
You can’t wrong at Pottery Barn.
Why is Pottery Barn so expensive?
This is a tricky question for me. I am all about finding affordable home decor and furniture but I am also realizing you get what you pay for. BUT that isn’t always the case.
I am pretty impressed with everything I own in my home and hardly anything has really come from Pottery Barn.
Pottery Barn is more expensive than most places I have talked about but there are plenty of reasons.
It’s not just the quality of their pieces either that make them more expensive. There are labor costs, they offer free design services and their (free) catalogs are some of the best I have seen. There is quite a bit of behind the scenes with Pottery Barn that we do not see and I do think some of this gets reflected in their prices.
