Desire/Acquire: Pretty Patterns at Differing Price Points

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).

For two additional finds from The City Girl,



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?

Yes, I recognized the pattern as Thomas Paul as well, and am wondering what the story is with this design. I'm very curious! And I love the settee, too, City Girl.

Thanks Casa :-) P.S. I really want that settee! Even if it may be a potential/sorta knockoff, hehe.
