Splurge or Save: A Chic Woven Rattan Bench

When I first saw the Pottery Barn Malibu Woven Bench, I immediately wanted it. The cool, coastal style is totally my vibe and I want my whole house to feel like a breath of fresh air or a trip to the beach.

And, while everything I’ve bought from PB over the years has been exceptionally high quality and their customer service cannot be beat, I knew there might be some more affordable versions of the rattan bench that would give me the look for less.

This Studio McGee alternative has a very similar look and comes with the loose cushion seat. If you’ve ever sat on rattan, you’ll agree that a cushion is ideal. It’s also smaller, too, which may or may not be what you need – so definitely check dimensions before clicking “add to cart”.

Whichever one you choose, I hope you find the woven bench that is right for your space, your style, and your budget. They’re both great options.

How To Save Even More $$$ on Home Decor:

Decorating a home is expensive. One way I make it more afforable is by using a cash back and coupon app. I’m about to get a couple hundred dollars in cash back from purchases I was going to make anyway – and that is just for the last few months. I got even more in cash back last year, too. If you’re not already using Rakuten, I definitely recommend it. And they’re usually running promotions where you get something like $30 cash back on your first purchase with them. Plus, when you add the Rakuten bookmark, it’ll tell you the available coupons for anything you’re about to buy, so you can find the best price. It’s so easy to use and and a great way to save money.
