The Threshold line at Target has some new post-holiday offerings. I want to love them. They are so close. But I feel like they miss on the details. And the details make all the difference.
Take, for instance these coral x-benches. At $59 each, you can't beat the price. But WHY didn't they pipe the legs? They would look 10000 times better if the same piping on the cushion also detailed the legs. Even if it had pushed the price to $79 each, I think it would have made all the difference, and they would sell better. But honestly, for $59, you could probably justify buying just to cover with your own fabric.
At first glance, I loved these fretwork pillows. The style is classic. But they are small in size and don't have down inserts. And without a zipper closure, you don't have the option of replacing the polyfil with down inserts. So I passed.
This pair of bird lamps is pretty cute. I do wish they had used brass hardware instead of black plastic sockets. But overall, these are one of the better things I saw.
These end tables are a chrome twist on the vintage brass ones I love.
I sold this vintage pair last week, and I prefer the brass, but you can't beat the Target version for the price.
These little quatrefoil tables (lying sideways) remind me of the much pricier Oomph Tini Table.
This mirror has good lines and would be cute in a girl's room.
And once again, if they were larger, I would have grabbed two of these needlepoint pillows for my playroom. They look a lot like the Trina Turk pillows from a couple years back.
Have you checked out the Threshold line? I know I am being nitpicky, and for the price, you can't beat the style. But I feel like skimping on a few details can totally ruin an otherwise chic piece. Do you agree?
