Looking to get that gorgeous Serena & Lily look in your home? As probably my favorite store ever, their coastal style home decor, furniture and accessories are simply stunning, but not always realistic for a lot of people’s budgets.

The good news is that I’ve found many Serena and Lily lookalike items that cost only a fraction of the price. So now you can get that same beautiful modern coastal look in your home, without breaking the bank!

Don’t forget you can also shop all the other items I share on the LTK platform! By following me you’ll also be notified of price drops of any items you’re interested in!


La Jolla Basket

Who doesn’t loves a good basket, am I right? You may have had your eye on the oh so popular La Jolla baskets from Serena & Lily. They are not only functional but stylish too!

Large La Jolla Basket

I actually own several that we use as both laundry hampers and toy storage and they were one of my first Serena & Lily purchases years ago. I will testify that the quality is amazing, and I own one of each size.

I particularly love the lid on these gorgeous baskets; it means you can hide all your dirty laundry or storage items, and keep your space looking aesthetically pleasing.

What’s not popular about these baskets is the price tag. But I’ve found a La Jolla basket dupe that looks really similar!

The TJ Maxx version (available in large, medium and small sizes) comes in the same natural color as the original solid La Jolla, but they also have the blue patterned version which is really cute for a bedroom or playroom.

I own a small version of the green stripe and the quality is really good! The lid doesn’t fit as well as the S& L version, but for a considerably lower price point, I’ll get over it!

If the baskets are currently unavailable online, be sure to check your local HomeGoods and Marshall’s stores. I see them there every week!

La Jolla Option #2

Another option that’s a great alternative is this set from Amazon which is almost identical to the S&L La Jollas, but you can get both the small and medium as a set for just over $200. The reviews are awesome so I’m pretty sure it’s the same product with a different name!

Throw Pillows and Blankets

Serena and Lily is famous for their beautiful throw pillows. I own many of them, but I get just as excited to get that beachy vibe with a look for less pillow, especially since I like to regularly switch them up.

Surf Stripe Pillow

Palm Pillow Cover

Palm Pillow // Etsy Version

Bring a little fun tropical design to your decor with this gorgeous pillow cover. This pillow is an exact match to the S & L Palm pillow cover, and it comes in a variety of sizes. So you can customize what you need for your space!

You’ll notice the only difference is how the edges of the pillow are sewed, but for the price difference, I think you won’t mind!

I also recently found this version on Amazon. It appears the shade of blue is slightly brighter, but it certainly is a very close match!

Bowden Pillow

Bowden Pillow Cover // Amazon Look For Less

Gingham Pillow Cover

Perennials Gingham Pillow // Etsy Version

We love a good gingham patterned pillow. You can pair this pattern with florals, stripes, or even patterned pillow covers. Pillows are a decor staple, and you can have fun with designs and textures. They add a little charm to any space.

Cuesta Pillow Cover

Cuesta Pillow Cover // Amazon Version

Beachcomber Cotton Throw

Beachcomber Cotton Throw // Walmart Version

Having good throw blankets is a must in our home. Sometimes you just want to cuddle up, and read a good book. This blanket is almost spot-on for its counterpart, the powdery blue Beachcomber Cotton Throw.

It looks cozy with its fringe and waffle weave design. Get ready to cozy up on any chair or sofa in your home with this gorgeous blanket!

Kitchen Seating

Balboa Side Chair

Balboa Armchair // Marshall’s Version

These Serena and Lily side chair lookalike has a very smilier texture and the perfect coastal look to them. Want to know the best part? You get two of the cheaper chairs for half the price of one S & L Balboa chair!

Balboa Counter Stool

When we remodeled our kitchen, one of must-haves was the Balboa Counter Stools from Serena & Lily. They are stunning – and SO comfortable!

The hefty price tag was a hard pill to swallow so if you’re looking to get the look of Serena and Lily’s Balboas without the price tag, this similar chair that I found at Wayfair are half the price of the S&L version.

Balboa Counter Stool // HomeGoods Version

The look for less of the Balboa counter stools even has the gold feet! But they are a really great similar style for a fraction of the price. At only $250 a chair, you can buy 3 of them for the same price as one Balboa!

If the above is out of stock, try this TJ Maxx version for a similar look without the gold feet.

Carson Counter Stool

Carson Woven Counter Stools // Wayfair Version

Get a very similar woven counter stool from Wayfair for a lot less than one of the Serena & Lily Carson stools! The woven look is almost identical; it’s just missing the stripe.

Avalon Counter Stool

Serena & Lily Avalon counter stool look for less
Avalon Counter Stool // Wayfair Version

The pretty Avalon counter stools are made of pretty handwoven rattan, and the look for less version also sports a very similar look! While the cheaper version doesn’t have the swivel mechanism, at a fraction of the price, you’re getting a very good match for a whole lot less!

Really want the swivel function? This similar version at Marshall’s has it!

Riviera Backless Counter Stool

The Riviera woven french bistro style beauties are a popular Serena & Lily purchase, but at $298 a piece they are certainly not within many budgets.

Riviera backless stool // Wayfair Version

The Wayfair Alastair Bar & Counter Stool is very similar and at $129 a piece is a much more palatable price for most homeowners.

Tucker Dining Chair

Tucker Dining Chair // Wayfair Version

This is another great find where you get two chairs for a little more than price of one. Sold together, a set of 2 of the Wayfair option has a slightly taller back but it’s only $200 for the pair, unlike the Tucker at almost $300 per chair. Plus, they come in several colors!

It is also a darker color grey than the S&L Tucker, but very similar in design. These are the perfect simple dining chair that works with any style.

I had the Wayfair version in my old kitchen and they were great!

Riviera Dining Chair

Riviera Dining Chair // Amazon Version

These pretty french bistro style chairs are a family favorite because they are easy to wipe down. They add a casual touch to any kitchen table, as well as a pop of color!

You can score 2 of the Amazon version for less than the price of 1 Serena & Lily Riviera chair.

Accent Chairs

I love a good accent chair for the living room or dining room so here’s several affordable alternatives to get the same look in your home.

Parkwood Swivel Chair – Coastal Blue

Parkwood Swivel Chair // Overstock Version

With the similar soft coastal blue fabric and clean lines, you’d be forgiven for maybe preferring the look for less to the original Parkwood Swivel Chair!

Both chairs swivel and would make a stunning addition to any bedroom or living room.

Seabrook Swivel Chair

Seabrook Swivel Chair // Wayfair Version

Both the Seabrook Swivel Chair and Wayfair’s look for less have pretty patterned fabric, and a stunning round silhouette that makes both of these swivel chairs a great choice if you’re short on space.

Islesboro Chair

Islesboro Chair // Pottery Barn Seagrass Chair

With similar curved lines, both these seagrass chairs would look pretty amazing on both ends of a dining table or as part of a sunroom conversation set!

Beach House Chair

Beach House Chair // Look For Less Version

Perfect as a nursery glider or just a comfy living room chair, both the Beach House Chair and the Grandin Road version share a very similar look. I’ve heard great things about the comfort level of both, so make your choice depending on how much you want to spend!

Beckett Chair

Beckett Chair // Amazon Look For Less

The Beckett chair is a stunning accent to any living room, but you’ll be much happier with the price of the Amazon look for less!

Harrison Swivel Cube

Harrison Swivel Cube // Skirted Storage Ottoman

Blue stripes get me every time! Cube ottomans like this make for great extra seating and look oh so cute! The look for less version even has storage!

Outdoor Chairs

Salt Creek Outdoor Dining Chair

The Salt Creek Dining Chair really caught my eye this season as I’ve been looking for new patio furniture. The rope detailing and white frame have the perfect summery coastal vibe that I love. But at over $800 for one chair, they were definitely not in budget!

Salt Creek Outdoor Dining Chair // Walmart Version

This 3 piece set from Walmart is a pretty close match and and an amazing price.

If the 3 piece set is sold out, they usually come back in stock. You can also get the 4-piece set for less than the cost of one Salt Creek armchair!

Coffee Tables and Side Tables

Seadrift Side Table

Seadrift Side Table // Urban Outfitters Table

The Seadrift side table is so versatile, and brings a cozy warmth to any space. We love the handwoven wicker, and it can be easily moved wherever and whenever you need it.

I personally think the Urban Outfitters one has a little more character to it with its pinched base. Whether you want to use it as a side table or top it with decor and style it to fit your home, it’s a winner in our book.

Bamileke Coffee Table (White)

Bamileke Coffee Table // Ballard Designs Bornova

I love a drum style coffee table and the carved detail of the Bamileke is stunning. However, the price point is over $2,000.

The Ballard Designs Bornova drum coffee table gives you the same look for one-third of the S&L price!

Bamileke Coffee Table (Brown)

If you prefer the look of the Bamileke in brown, then you need to snap up this carved wood drum coffee table from World Market for only $350! I’ve seen it in person and it’s really beautiful!

Beds and Bedding

Your master bedroom will be beautiful with these dupes for the real thing!

Beach House Bed

Serena & Lily Beach House Bed // Look For Less Version

How pretty is the blue linen on these beds? Such a pretty touch to any bedroom!

Wave Sheet Set

Wave Sheets // Macy’s Set

We saved the best one for last. This wave scalloped sheet set from Macy’s will give you the luxury look of the S & L Wave Sheet Set for less than half the cost.

You will adore the 400 thread count 100% Egyptian cotton of this sheet et when you rest your head after a long day!


Georgia Table Lamp

Georgia Table Lamp // Look For Less Version

I don’t know about you, but $700 for a glass lamp that my kids may break is a hard pill to swallow. I’d much rather pay $160 and get the same look for fraction of the price!

Beach Side Table Lamp

Beach Side Table Lamp // Target Look For Less

$400 versus $40…is that extra zero worth it? I think the Target version is the perfect look for less!

Hattie Table Lamp

Hattie Table Lamp // Amazon Look For Less

These are so close in looks that you’d be mistaken for thinking they are the same lamp, but the Amazon version is a fraction of the price!

Headlands Bell Pendant // Look For Less Version

At only $129 per pendant, the look-for-less version is a lot more affordable, especially when you plan on buying 2 or 3 for over an island!


Poetto Vase // Amazon Look For Less


Montara Mirror // Look For Less Version

Both these nautical mirrors are really cute, but you can easily get the same look with the more affordable mirror and a bit of stain to darken it!

Dip Dye Stools

Dip Dye Stools // Marshall’s Version


While all the Serena & Lily rugs are stunning and high quality, the price point can certainly be hard to swallow. I personally own the Hillsborough rug in one of the smaller sizes and love it, but I’m not sure I would have been willing the pay for the larger size if I’d needed it for my living room.

I’ve pulled together some Serena & Lily inspired rugs that are all 100% wool and are more afforable options.

I’ve got my eye on some of these for a summer living room refresh!

Rug 1 // Rug 2 // Rug 3 // Rug 4

As much as we all love the quality and look of items from Serena & Lily, the extra cost is not always feasible for our budgets. With these looks for less, you can get that same beautiful coastal look in your home but for a fraction of the cost! That’s a win-win in my books!

Looking for a good deal on real Serena & Lily items? Be sure to keep an eye on their clearance section and, if you’re near one, visit one of the S&L outlet stores in person!
