You can't always get what you want,
but if you try sometimes,
you just might find
 THAT...

{Crate and Barrel Zak Lamp}
$219.00

you get what you need!
and
for $1,381.00 LESS
oh yeah!

  5. Yay! Love it!!

    Crate and Barrel has some great pieces for the home at reasonable prices...we bought all our furniture for our apt. there :D

  6. I definitely like the lines of the second one better despite it being less money. See you tonight!

  8. Great lamp, I have used this style of lamp for a client and we placed some coloured decorator balls inside the base. I love finding designer pieces at everyday prices, the effect will still be the same.

  9. Oh yeah! And honestly, I prefer the C and B one, it has more character! XX!

  10. i'm ALL about the cheaper versions! - if i were to be able to 'afford' the designer labels, maybe i'd go that route - but most likely id' still go the cheaper way!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love that! I love the comparisons!

  16. Great find! Love your "That, Not This" finds.

  17. I definitely like the Crate and Barrel one more! And I love how you added some Rolling Stones to the post!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd take THAT in a heartbeat! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ha ha, great job in finding a cheaper substitute! I would never pay almost $2000.00 for a lamp!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love that Stones song (I was humming along as I read your post) & the Crate and Barrel lamp.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Exactly! I can't even believe that first one is almost $2,000!! Spending that much on a lamp would end my fall boot craze for many years to come!

    ReplyDelete
  22. good find! Love that c&B one!

    ReplyDelete
  23. $1,600 on a lamp, that is just madness!! I like the C&B one better too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. SO contemporary and chic!

  26. I went to the Saladino showroom last night at the What's New, What's Next event at the New York Design Center and it was gorgeous! Were you there? I have to say this is a great comparison, and definitely living luxe for less! I would be very happy to have this CB lamp in my home. Great find!

  27. Oh, how I love Crate and Barrel!:D

  31. I think I saw "THAT" at Homesense the other day!

    ReplyDelete
  32. wowza! price difference is amazing. Second one is my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I LOVE that crate and barrel lamp, I think its actually so much cuter than the more expensive one! tres chic!

    ReplyDelete
  34. now that's a deal! i love the look, the super thin cord running down the interior of that lamp. i actually like the shape of the glass better in the cheaper lamp design. really i do! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the Zak lamp. It's so versatile...you can use it in any style room. Plus, the $200 price tag is pretty nice!

    ReplyDelete
  36. great find! can't believe I actually like the less expensive one better -- that almost never happens!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great shopping! I think either Arhaus or Ethan Allen might have one too at reasonable prices!

    ReplyDelete
  38. i love finding good knock offs. that's so my thing. nice find.

    ReplyDelete
  39. like the design:)

  40. The less expensive one definitely works for me!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Crate & Barrel lamp is better! Thanks, I'm going to order two for my dining room sideboard!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Right on! Such finds are just brilliant and I actually like the shape even better!

  43. I really prefer the taper of the C&B version...and why is the other so $$!?!?! Is it made of crystal instead of glass?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I actually like the CB version a lot better. The John Saladino is too bulky in my opinion. I think the CB version looks more feminine. I like that. -c

  45. Yours is wayyyyyy more gorgeous! Good for you!

  47. I would say you're definitely on the right side of the looking glass! Light bulbs...they are meant to be turned on :) XO, Kelly

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow. Not a good comparison for Saladino is it?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Not just cheaper, the second one looks better too! Yes, it's worth while to investigate a little - well done!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Now you're talking our language!
    Best,
    Liz

  51. I like the C&B one BETTER! Save your moola!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow amazing price difference! I prefer the Crate & Barrel one because I think it has more interest with the shape of the glass.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think I actually like the crate one better! and for 1300 dollars cheaper, its one hell of a deal!

    ReplyDelete
  54. You know what I always think? WHO THE F has that kind of money?!?! I know, I know - someone does, but geezus, just give it a little bit of thought and creativity and things always pop up for less!

    Love the lamp.
