A funky, chic, and inexpensive living room.
Thomas J. Story

Inexpensive Living Room

In this funky, yet chic living room, inexpensive furniture mingles with high-end touches. Ikea curtains hang on plumbing pipe, while custom pillows sit atop a bargain (at $579) settee from Urban Outfitters. A hand-painted chinoiserie coffee table rests on an old Pakistani rug ($85 on eBay). "We're all about finding cool things on the cheap," said Leah. "Mainly because I have to, but also because a high-low mix makes a space feel more real."
