Lonny and Ivy for less

The latest issues of online home decor magazines Lonny and Ivy & Piper featured a couple of things several times.

One is faux zebra hide rugs.

If you don't care to make my own fake zebra hide, there's now a ringer for the $700 Horchow rug available at CSN Stores for $101 (and free shipping) and at Overstock for $92.

The other item is chevron and its close cousin the stripe.

Premier Prints has both large and small zig zags for about $10 a yard. And here's a tip from Christian at Maison 21: has some of the same chevron for only $7 a yard.

The magazines are, as always, free.


  1. Great alternatives. Those rugs are awesome. I was just looking for one a few weeks ago. Thanks for the tip!

    Thank you for posting this! How did I not know about Ivy & Piper??

    I'm dying for a cheap, chevron printed headboard to fill the space until we upgrade our queen bed for a king. Great finds!

  3. You always post the best finds. At this rate my house should be looking fabulous!

  4. This was a GREAT post...really great prices! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Such great tips...not to mention the lovely images you chose to go with them! The top and bottom images are two personal faves.

  6. Love the Premier Prints option! How can anyone turn down great fabric at $7/yard?

  7. Thank you for your hard work to collect and organize, to share with you a lot about the fashion thing, and this is very useful to me.
