We love Heal’s furniture. If we could, we would deck out our entire homes solely in Heal’s furniture. But although we might have the interior style sense of a millionaire, we definitely don’t have the budget. And, while we are advocates of treating yourself to a few key pieces, we also love a good bargain. So we spent our morning trawling the internet for the best Heal’s furniture lookalikes to save some money without compromising on style.
If you have been lusting after EVERYTHING on the Heal's site then this is for you. Go ahead splurge on one or two of their items – you know you deserve it. But if budget does not allow for a whole living room of Heal's masterpieces we are strong advocates for mixing and matching high street and high end for the look you want.

Nice one, Dunelm. Just check out this Mid-century-style beauty, and if you go with the Dunelm Fulton side board (opens in new tab) over the (admittedly very lovely) McQueen walnut chest of drawers (opens in new tab), you will be spending three figures instead of four. Yes, you read that right, Dunelm price = £179, Heal’s price = £6,210.
Of course, the Heal's piece is made from hardwood walnut so you are paying for the love and care that has gone into growing and crafting that tree into this beautiful specimen. But if you are trying to live a Champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget, get yourself to Dunelm.
We are seeing these clean-lined coffee tables everywhere at the moment: Heal’s, West Elm, Swoon, The Range? Yep, The Range (opens in new tab) is selling them for just £69.99, and that’s an amazing price even if you don’t compare it to the £205 it would cost you at Heal’s (opens in new tab).
We’ve sung the praises of H&M furniture for a while now for its amazing quality, super style and affordable price points. The most recent range definitely has a Heal’s vibe, and this coffee table (opens in new tab) is a case in point as it’s very similar to one we spotted on the Heal’s (opens in new tab) website.
Dunelm are at it again with nailing the Mid-century vibe that Heal's are often known and loved for. The Taylor three seater sofa (opens in new tab) is just £359, whereas the incredibly similar Mistral sofa from Heal’s (opens in new tab) is £2,149. What’s even better is that the Dunelm pick is actually a sofa bed, too.
If you are buying for your forever home, then sure, splash out on the Heal's sofa. Move around a lot and never know if your new sofa will suit a future home? Opt for Dunelm. While it is built to last and will see you through a good few years of use, you can feel less guilty about popping it on Gumtree if it doesn't fit up the stairs to your new flat...
We’re sure we don’t need to tell you, but Argos is fast becoming the place to get on trend furniture at an amazing price. Seriously, can you see any difference between this £1,975 dining table from Heal’s (opens in new tab) and the £495 version from Habitat at Argos (opens in new tab)? We can't. Those clever souls at Habitat have use a combo of solid and veneered wood to keep the cost down.
And here it is, another great high end v high street buy: the Madrid dining table (opens in new tab) (£1,699 from Heal’s) versus the Tribeca dining table (opens in new tab) (£249.99 from Argos). Sure, the Madrid is the refined dining table of our dreams, but with three kids and a dog stomping around? Tribeca, you're invited to our dinner party.
A velvet bed is what dreams are made of, but they can get expensive. But look, here’s one from Made (opens in new tab) for just £699, a bargain when you compare it to Heal’s (opens in new tab) £1096 equivalent.
If you’re trying to decide between a holiday and a stylish new lamp, let us put you out of your misery and reveal that you can have both. This lamp from B&Q (opens in new tab) is just 50 quid. We know we are fickle, so we are waving goodbye to the £349 one from Heal’s (opens in new tab) and say hello to a mini break in Porto instead.
