Crate & Barrel isn't exactly unaffordable. And yet, the store—ground zero for scanner-happy soon-to-be-married couples—is focusing even more on entry-level home decor.
A new line of products, called Best&Buys, can compete price-wise with the home furnishings Ikea and Target.
An all-linen lamp is only $39.95. Other finds include a cute storage basket/ottoman for $79.95, a great twin bed made of metal with powdercoated blue finish for $399 (perfect for a kid's room, but of course there are bigger sizes at bigger prices for adults, too) and a nice, Eames-ish leather office chair for $299 (shown here; not too shabby for leather).
If you're shopping for deals, go to the website and search under "Best and Buys," and you'll get straight to the savings.
