Six affordable homeware pieces that look luxe
Sourcing items that look more expensive than they are is a gift and at W.A.Green we understand the importance of pairing blow-the-budget items with more affordable finds. There is something satisfying about a good cheap interior find and when someone remarks on them, even better.
Getting the luxury look for less may require hours of internet searching for some but we’ve got you covered on plenty of things from glassware to mirrors to outdoor furniture that doesn’t break the bank. Shop our favourite six inexpensive pieces that look a million dollars below.
ONE | The Modernist Vase | £18
A mantelpiece is the ideal place to showcase your most prized possessions so getting your interior accessories on point is absolutely key to giving off a luxurious atmosphere. This modernist vase by HUBSCH looks worth way more than £18 and even brings in this season’s much-loved earthy tones. Pair with a bright white wall and lots of artwork for a very high-end look.
TWO | The Iridescent Jug | £3
This glazed olive jug by Madam Stoltz is absolutely stunning, coming in at a mere £32 and looking worth much more. The glazed ceramic gives off a green iridescent vibe, conveying oil spills and the highly coveted colourful metallic hues. We've always been a fan of khaki green and this item pairs the modern craft trend with a more colourful take.
THREE | The Pink Lounge Chair | £190
Another key piece is this coral pink lounge chair by Madam Stoltz which looks just as good indoors as out and while £190 might seem a little steeper than the rest of our picks, you’ve got to admit it looks worth thousands. The dusty pink powder coated iron gives a luxe laid back feel and we’re certain you can style this up in a multitude of different ways depending on the season. If you could do “cost per wear” on furniture, this would only cost you pennies.
FOUR | The Rose Vase | £15
There’s something about pink interior accessories that add glam factor and this smoky rose vase from Hubsch is no exception. Glass is a classic material for giving a luxury aesthetic and adds light to dark interiors. This traditional cut glass design offers a contemporary twist with its pink, grey and at times violet hues. We’re saying this one needs to be paired with flowers, fresh from Columbia Road or cheat it with our beautiful fauxilage.
FIVE | The Terrazzo Mirror | £49
Terrazzo is huge right now and has been seen gracing many a luxury bathroom in recent months. Is this the new marble? This round terrazzo mirror from HUBSCH is the perfect accompaniment to your dressing table or bathroom, adding a geometric twist with strong shapes and fragments of black, white and grey. At just £49 you cannot go wrong.
SIX | The Amber Wine Glass | £8
We can’t quite believe that this hand blown amber wine glass by Nordal costs only £8 – that’s a whole set of six for under £50. The stunning colour changes shade from a deep gold amber to a bright yellow and looks strong and stable. Golden goblets for golden people, or at least that’s what your guests will think. The modernist design will have people asking where they can get their hands on some. Spread the word and give them a surprise!
