While searching the internet for some interesting accessories for a young couple I noticed Anthro is killing it right now with their ethnic inspired furniture and accessories. If you have been reading my blog for long you know I love infusing a little cross-cultural spirit into my decor. Anthro has some great options.

I personally wouldn’t buy a sofa or a good comfortable chair from a retail outlet like Anthro, but I would have no problem buying a decorative piece like the Tanja trunk
this gorgeous Lombok Dresser
or a statement chair like the Ulla Accent Chair (that is more for looks than actually sitting). It is also on sale!
The Embury Dresser would be a great entry or statement piece where it is not used all the time. It has a sleek look that could be balanced with a group of the antiqua hanging baskets, and the uteki painted lamp and some flowers or branches in the barnacle vase, or the black and white antique patterned wall art above and something simple and textural like the driftwood sculpture on the chest. I never like a something cold on something cold.
Some of Anthro’s items can be kind of pricey so I thought I would see if I could get a similar look from Target. Nate Berkus always designs some great accessories for Target so I knew I could find some interesting finds.
Love Nate’s Screen Door Nightstand for Target. It is on sale for $104.98, so you get a lot of bang for your buck. It is probably not going to last a lifetime but it would definitely work for someone starting out. Either The Perugia Etruscan Mirror or the Black Tree Canvas Art would be great companions to the nightstand, along with the Abbyson Budha Table Lamp. I have no problem purchasing table lamps or lampshades from Target. I have done so many times and had great luck.
I am crazy about their Olivia and May Butterfly Leather Chair. You can find these elsewhere for more $$$. I used a similar chair in a recent project. These chairs are great for kids. They love sitting in them. The Three Lighting Ceiling Light would look great hovering above.
There are so many options at Target for someone that wants the look for less.
