Splurge vs. Save - Home Office Desk Edition

Does anyone else remember the TV show "The Look for Less"? It aired in the early 2000s and the premise was finding outfits that resembled high-end designer looks for, you guessed it, less. I loved how they went into stores that are easily accessible to the masses like TJ Maxx to create more affordable outfit look-a-likes.


I love applying this same concept to interior design and home decor. HGTV magazine features a column called "The High/Low List" in each issue.

Well, I've really been thinking about home offices lately. Mine is currently in my bedroom and will be moving down into my basement within the next month or so. My husband is now working from home indefinitely. So, since I'm on a bit of a home office kick, I figured I could create my own version of the High/Low List, starting with desks.

Splurge: West Elm, $1,899 Save: Wayfair, $369

Splurge: Horchow, $5,239

There you have it - my first Splurge vs. Save! If you have any items for the home you'd like to see in a future Splurge vs. Save post, let me know! Until next time...


Happy Designing! - Angela :)
