Pottery Barn design is beautiful but I believe you Can design your Dream Home for less. You have to think long term. What is popular now might not be so hot in 5 years. This is were style Vs. longevity comes to play. Pick a sofa or large scale furniture that is neutral in color and (or) traditional in design. You can not go wrong with traditional furniture. You can always accent with the newest colors and styles of the season. Ikea and American Signature Furniture are great places to buy large scale furniture for low prices. This way you can buy those pricey pillow covers from Pottery Barn. If your a smart shopping some of these those pieces will last years. Now all you have to worry about is leather Vs. fabric?
