While researching a new purchase, I always start by finding the most expensive, luxurious and often (but not always) best quality item available that fits my requirements. Once I set my sights on this object of obsession, I start the long and painful process of finding its poor country relative to fulfill my need…Here’s an example of something that caught my eye recently:

The real…Horchow Blue Recamier Sofa


The knock off… Urban Outfitters Antoinette Fainting Sofa

Both come in a variety of colors, I particularly love the Horchow chair in silver leather, HOT! (couldn’t find a high enough resolution picture so the blue will have to do) With about a 2500 dollar price difference…..Umm, let’s not get it twisted.
