5 Target Finds That Look Better in Person

Grey and I stopped into Target yesterday morning to pick something up, and as per usual, I wanted to check out the home decor section.  At first glance, I was really disappointed with what was out on display (wondering if they’re transitioning Threshold seasons?), but we walked the aisles and found some nice things.  Or, I should say, Grey found some nice things — because I had tunnel vision and was basically walking around saying how ugly everything was under my breath.  I rounded up five things that caught our attention — and these five things look way better in person than they do in these pictures.  Much higher quality, an emphasis on materials, and just better in general.

Love these nailhead trim chairs.  The fabric looks durable, and the legs are sort of an espresso with a woodgrain detail — not jet black like they look in this picture.  The nailheads were generally straight (something difficult to find in more bargain-level furniture), and they are only about $85 each!  That’s a pretty big steal for upholstered dining chairs of any variety.

 We both liked this, as we have been sort of keeping our eyes open for a leaning bookshelf for a lot of years.  I will say that this is slightly more contemporary than what I would purchase for myself, and the wood pieces on the sides were a cherry stain — not my favorite. But this is a nice piece of furniture, heavy-duty, and would look great in a pair.  Under $200.

LOVE this, and bonus that it is on casters.  The fabric is super luxurious and textured, the color is a perfect neutral without looking too browny-beige, and there is a little bit of piping detail around the sides.  The top opens for extra storage and stays open on its own.  This was beautiful and under $150 — crazy!

Gorgeous wood floor lamp with a Restoration Hardware feel.  This looks like a heavy piece of furniture without the price point.  The finish is washed and rustic and its a perfect addition to so many different home styles — French country and traditional being the more obvious choices, but this could also work in a more urban loft aesthetic or a bohemian vibe.

This.  I wish I could have purchased this, and had I had the extra $$ I would have seeing as it is essentially the color palette I want for our future home.  It’s a large piece of art, framed behind glass, with a gorgeous gray weathered frame that I love almost as much as the print itself.  The colors are watery so the landscape is not so landscape-y, but more dreamy and ethereal.  LOVE this.  Sad to leave it behind.
