Project 62 Textured Faux Fur Reversible Throw Blanket

Price: $24.99

Consumer analyst Julie Ramhold with DealNews, said this textured faux fur reversible throw is so soft and luxurious that it reminds her of the much more expensive UnHide blankets.

“Is it an exact dupe?” she said. “Not quite, but if you want a cozy throw at an affordable price, this is an excellent buy.”

Threshold Tall Brass Vase

Price: $15

Ramhold said that the Threshold Tall Brass Vase is a lightweight, minimalist piece that would be easy to work into your decorating scheme.

“However, it looks easily like something you’d spend twice that if not more from home furniture stores like Crate & Barrel or Pottery Barn,” she said.

Price: $34.99

Ramhold suggested using this metal decor tray to upgrade your decor or to serve refreshments to visitors.

“It’s $34.99 but looks like it could easily be far more expensive at places like Williams-Sonoma, and thanks to its color scheme, it looks good in practically any setting, whatever your tastes may be,” she said.
