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 & 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!

Outdoor Furniture

Salt Creek Chair // Walmart Version (set of 2)

I love the woven detail and coastal color scheme of the Salt Creek patio chair, but $1400 for a chair that my kids will ruin with popsicles is not ideal. At only $324 for a set of two, the Look for Less version is way more affordable and looks equally stunning. It also comes in a conversation set for under $800!

Throw Pillows and Blankets

Serena & 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

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

The Amazon version is also outdoor rated. You can see it below on my patio furniture this past summer.

Beachcomber Cotton Throw

Beachcomber Cotton Throw // Amazon 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, minus the fringe on the the powdery blue Beachcomber Cotton Throw.

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

Benches

Riviera Rattan Backless Bench // Target Look For Less

The Riviera Rattan Backlass Bench is a coveted item, but you can get a similar look in a smaller scale with this Target version that I’ve found.

Shore Bench // Target Look For Less

I’ve always loved the look of Serena & Lily’s shore bench, so when I found the other version at Target I was thrilled to get a similar natural woven look for such a great price. Plus, it comes with a bench cushion!

Kitchen Seating

Balboa Side Chair

balboa chair versus the look for less
Balboa Armchair // Walmart Look For Less

These Serena & 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 only $212!

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 & Lily’s Balboas without the price tag, this similar chair that I found at Walmart are half the price of the S&L version.

balboa counter stool versus the look for less
Balboa Counter Stool // Walmart Look For Less

The look for less of the Balboa counter stools doesn’t have the gold feet or cushion, but they are a really great similar style for a fraction of the price. At only $297 a chair, you can buy 3 of them for the same price as one Balboa!

If you’re really stuck on the brass accent, this version has it and they’re still a few hundred dollars cheaper than the S&L ones.

Carson Counter Stool

carston counter stool versus the look for less
Carson Woven Counter Stools // Wayfair Look For Less

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 Look For Less

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!

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 woven counter stool versus the look for less
Riviera backless stool // Wayfair Look For Less

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 Look for Less

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 bistro chair versus the look for less
Riviera Dining Chair // Amazon Look For Less

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 versus the look for less
Parkwood Swivel Chair //Walmart 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 versus the look for less
Seabrook Swivel Chair // Wayfair Look For Less

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

isleboro chair versus the look for less
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 versus the look for less
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 versus the look for less
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!

Coffee Tables and Side Tables

Seadrift Side Table

seadrift side table versus the look for less
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.

Balboa Round Coffee Table

The rattan woven Balboa Coffee Table is stunning. I would happily buy it if I had that kind of money. But if I want to get a similar look without the price tag, the look for less version ticks a lot of the boxes for only $250!

Balboa Coffee Table // Look For Less

Truro Coffee Table

truro coffee table versus the look for less
Truro coffee table // Look for Less Version

The Truro coffee table is a frequently requested look-for-less item, and I think the one I found is a really good dupe for the original! It has a similar organic shape and texture, and despite the orange tint of the image, it is white.

While the Truro coffee table is a cool $1500, the dupe comes in at a more reasonable $798. Both are indoor/outdoor rated and a similar size.

Bamileke Coffee Table (White)

Bamilkeke drum table versus the look for less
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)

brown Bamilkeke drum table versus the look for less

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!

St. Germain Coffee Table

St. Germain coffee table versus the look for less
St. Germain coffee table // Pottery Barn look for less version

The St. Germain coffee table with its brass and glass is incredibly elegant and will add a chic touch to any living room. If you can’t swing the $1600 price tag, the Pottery Barn look for less version is $699 . It has a similar profile and also has the brass and glass detais.

Lyon Coffee Table

Lyon coffee table versus the look for less
Lyon coffee table // Wayfair look for less

Darker wood tones are making a big comback, and both Serena & Lily’s Lyon coffee table and the look for less version would add richness and elegance to your living space. Both feature a square design and lower shelf.

The Lyon is 48 inches wide, while the Wayfair version is 42 inches. However, at only $668 versus $1900, I think we’ll get over losing those few inches!

Bridgeway Ottoman

Bridgeway ottoman versus the look for less
Bridgeway Ottoman // Pottery Barn look for less

If you’re looking for a coffee table that doubles as a footrest AND extra seating, upholstered ottomans are a great choice. Serena & Lily’s Bridgeway Ottoman is beautiful and big, but the $2800 price tag is a lot for any piece of furniture. While the Pottery Barn look for less version is not cheap, it’s more than half the price for a similar look.

Beds and Bedding

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

Beach House Bed

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

Portofino Linen Duvet Cover

Portofino duvet cover // Amazon look for less

I love the natural texture of linen, and the Serena & Lily Portofino linen duvet cover is this pretty blue color will add the perfect coastal feel to your bedroom.

But, you can get a similar linen duvet in a softer shade of blue for less than $60 from Amazon. Or you can pay over $300 at Serena & Lily. Your choice!

Hyannis Duvet Cover

Hyannis duvet cover versus the look for less
Serena & Lily Hyannis cover // Target lookalike version

How fun is this blue gingham print? This print is adorable for a guest room or even a teenage boy’s room. It’s one of those great gender neutral prints that can be softened up or paired with more masculine touches. Target has a great dupe at only $79 compared to the Serena & Lily Hyannis duvet cover that costs $258.

Sutton Sateen Duvet Cover

Sutton duvet cover versus the look for less
Sutton sateen duvet cover // Target look for less

Serena & Lily’s sateen covers are amazing. Absolutely buttery soft and so nice to sleep on! Although I’m guessing the Target version with its 700 thread count (compared to S&L’s 610 thread count) might give the Sutton run for its money! Plus, with a $300 price difference, I think I’m going to have to try the Target look for less!

Lamps & Pendants

Como Petite Lamp

Como Petite Lamp // The Look For Less

The Como Lamp is a popular choice as a petite table lamp that’s perfect for a bedroom nightstand. Both the Como lamp and the look for less come in different sizes and colors!

They look so similar, but with a price differential of $250, I think I’ll choose the look for less for sure!

Want an even cheaper option? This version is currently in stock and is even cheaper with a very similar look.

Georgia Table Lamp

Georgia table lamp versus the look for less
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

beachside table lamp versus the look for less
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

Springview Table Lamp // Look For Less
Westerly Bone Inlay Table Lamp // Look For Less

Get a pair of bone inlay table lamps for half the price of one Westerly lamp!

Headlands Pendant

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 versus the look for less
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! This Amazon version is also a great price, but has a slightly wider shape.

Vases

Poetto vase versus the look for less
Poetto Vase // Amazon Look For Less

The Serena & Lily Poetto vase is one of their most iconic home decor items, and for good reason – it’s such a stunning way to display flowers, whether real or faux.

The Amazon lookalike version is slightly smaller in size, but has the same color-blocked band that we all love! You can see it (below) next to my kitchen sink.

Mirrors

Montara Mirror

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!

Wave Mirror

Wave Mirror // Look for less version

I fell in love with the wave mirror last year when I was planning my bedroom refresh, but couldn’t justify the price tag. After some searching, I found this look for less version for just over $200.

It’s significantly smaller at 26″ in diameter versus the Wave’s 42″, but it has a very similar look for a much nicer price.

Love this look? Then you’ll really love these scalloped home decor finds.

Rugs

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 (it’s in the baby’s nursery), 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!

Wallpaper

I’m a huge fan of Serena & Lily’s wallpaper selections, and they’re actually not as expensive as some other brands out there. With that being said, at sometimes over $200 a roll, the expense adds up quickly.

Here’s some options to help you get that pretty S&L wallpaper look at a more budget-friendly price point:

Nightstands

The Driftway line of furniture from Serena & Lily is iconic, but the price point is definitely not what most people want to spend. I’ve found two nightstands that will give you a similar look for a fraction of the price.

Driftway 3 Drawer Nightstand

Baskets

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!

la jolla basket versus the look for less
La Jolla Basket // Look for less version

The TJ Maxx version 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!

I also found this version on Amazon that has a similar look but a great price point for a set of 2.

FAQ’s

Serena & Lily is popular for its distinctive blend of classic and modern designs with a coastal vibe, appealing to those seeking fresh, airy, and sophisticated interiors.

This comprehensive selection and aesthetic appeal make Serena & Lily a go-to for homeowners aiming to create a serene and inviting home atmosphere.

Final Thoughts

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!
