Shrewd online shopper and Su Casa member The City Girl recently discovered some very interesting similarities between some high-end Neiman Marcus products and some low-end Target products.
She writes, "I think that almost every company could have something in its collection to offer — if not in actual product, then perhaps with inspiration. It's just that various designers usually offer quite different, distinct looks — especially companies such as, say, Target or Neiman Marcus. So imagine my surprise when I discovered not one, but two parallels between the Neiman Marcus bed linens line, and the new(ish) Target upholstered furniture line! Take a look yourself!"
First, The City Girl showed off the Blossom Bed Linen (now on sale for $36-138), seen here.
Does this pattern look familiar? That's because it's also used on this Smoke Target Settee ($549.99).

Next, The City Girl tracked down the Daybreak Bed Linens ($100-687.50) from Neiman Marcus. The pattern, woven in Portugal by Pinecone Hill, features a modern mix of birds, flowers, and stripes in shades of bluegrass and green tea.
However, if you'd like to see this pattern on a chair, you're in luck, because The City Girl found it at Target on the Canary Print Armless Chair ($299.99). I love this little chair!
Have you noticed any similar patterns featured at both high- and low-end retailers?
