Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn?


Fall arrivals are beginning to pop up at our favorite home stores, and it seems imitation is the sincerest form of retail flattery. Let's play a game with some upcoming merchandise introductions - are they from Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn? (Answers at the end.)




TRICK! They're all from Pottery Barn!! Because, apparently, we have completely run out of new ideas in home furnishings.

haha! i guessed correctly, but partly because they have no new ideas about photography either.

Animal cages are a stupid place to put your dishes, fake animal cages are even more stupid. Ugh. Does Pottery Barn even sell pottery?

I knew it. Sad.

All because even the most creative people/companies are over inspired (or under inspired, depends on how you look at it) by what they see on the internet. Perhaps another means of inspiration would help......

I agree it all very RH but the PB styling is a dead giveaway.

I was TOTALLY wrong! I forsure thought that the tufted leather couch was from Restoration Hardware. Ha ha. Tricky.

I guessed "Big Lots"! Although it wasn't a choice! LOL!

Retailers have got to get over the big light up sign thing.

Real old light up signs that you find somewhere = cool. Fake ones that you buy at PB = not cool.

I hope someone frees that pottery. It's making me sad.

Re Little Bitty:

Actually, I've seen some similar items in Big Lots.

Pottery Barn is too expensive for me, alas.
