Make refined elegance work in your home
The table lamp
Add an ethereal element of light to your interior with either of these elegant looking lamps. The ideal, from John Lewis & Partners, is crafted from a high-shine chrome. The great deal, from Very, is made from a mercury glass base. Both distressed mirror finishes will enhance and reflect light beautifully.
Ideal: Tabitha Distressed Mirror Table Lamp, £95, John Lewis & Partners
Great deal: Lindi Dual-Source Table Lamp, £59.99, Very
The dining chair
Slight difference in finish but altogether, pound for pound in style. But if you need to order four or six to seat around a dining table the cheaper option will make things far more affordable overall.
Ideal: Pulpit Rock Upholstered Dining Chair, £259.99, Wayfair
Great deal: Antoinette Smoke Grey Dining Chair, £119.99, My Furniture
The faux fur rug
A luxury-look sheepskin adds not only a touch of luxe but, more importantly, warmth and texture underfoot. These two grey designs create the same feel, the difference is one is 100 per cent sheepskin while the other is faux – but who's to know? We won't tell if you don't!
The silver tray
Talk about silver service! Whether you're serving tea or simply using these mirrored trays to dress a sideboard, either design will ensure it's done in style. The only big difference is the price tag.
The knitted cushion
A simple knitted accessory, especially in a sophisticated shade of grey, can go a long way to add effortless Scandi-chic. The ideal version is a more luxurious Lambswool blend, however the great version looks pretty spot on as a cheaper substitute.
Add touches of greenery for a festive flourish.
