Our staffers here at AT are big admirers of Serena & Lily, and I stress the word admirers because most of the retailer’s stylish furnishings cost a pretty penny. Sure, you can find some accessories and decor pieces for around $50, but overall, this is not the store to frequent if you’re shopping on a budget. That being said, if you know where to look, you can find pieces that fit the same aesthetic for way less. Case in point: the OSP Home Furnishings Kaylee spindle accent chair from Amazon, which looks almost identical to Serena & Lily’s popular Beckett Chair. The only major difference? The Amazon version retails for $330. Although this is by no means a small price to pay for an accent chair, it’s significantly less than the $2,248 amount at which the Beckett chair is currently marked down. But how does the Kaylee chair hold up amid day-to-day use? Luckily, AT Director of Strategic Partnerships Laina bought it for her living room a few months back and has all the intel.

What is the Kaylee Spindle Accent Chair?

Simultaneously elegant and comfy, the Kaylee chair will instantly elevate the look of your sitting area without taking up a ton of space. In fact, we could just as easily see this piece in a cozy reading nook or bedroom corner as we could by the sofa. A solid wood frame makes for a sturdy silhouette, while spring-and-foam cushions allow you to lounge for hours on end without sinking in. Of course, the star feature of this chair is the spindle detailing on the frame, which sets it apart from the ordinary armchair without making it look too busy. The all-white design further allows the chair to blend in with a variety of interior decor styles, whether we’re talking coastal, modern, or farmhouse. Laina got hers on sale during Prime Day and couldn’t be happier with her find. “I couldn’t speak more highly of this chair!” she said. “It was SO easy to put together and is so substantial and looks amazing.”

Unfortunately, the Amazon chair only comes in all-white, so you’d have to look to the original Beckett Chair for more options. Specifically, that one is available in just under 200 fabric options, and each one is custom-made. If you ask us, though, the $330 version is a solid alternative if you’re okay with the monochromatic color scheme.

The Serena & Lily chair is also made of durable hardwood, which is perhaps a bit nicer than the dupe’s materials. In contrast, the Kaylee chair’s frame is made of rubberwood, which you’ll find to be the case with a lot of budget-friendly furnishings. But the majority of Amazon shoppers still report being satisfied with their chairs, and Laina certainly doesn’t regret purchasing hers on sale.

“I am a huge fan of Serena & Lily and the coastal/grandmillennial look,” she said. “I’ve seen this chair at a few stores going for over $2,500. I was amazed to see it for so inexpensive on Amazon and did not have high hopes of quality because it was only $250. The second I opened it, I was shocked. … It is a heavy, substantial chair. Would highly recommend it to anyone!”

What Amazon Reviewers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.1/5

“Can’t believe how beautiful and high-end this looks! Pretty easy to assemble and is relatively comfortable and very sturdy!! For the price, I highly recommend.” — Danielle

“I absolutely love them! They came in two days, and I put them together by myself in under 30 minutes. I sprayed them with fabric protector, as they are white. Serena & Lily has a chair very similar — this was an incredible deal!” — A.C.

“For the price, this is a great little chair … It’s definitely not a ‘come in from yard work, grab a slice of pizza, and plop down for the big game’ kind of chair, but it’s comfortable, much better for my back than the old cushy chair it’s replacing, and superclean looking. The wood is the color of cream, and the ‘linen’ polyester fabric is more natural/oatmeal than white.” — Mary

In short, if you’re looking for a quaint and comfortable enough accent piece that’ll draw plenty of compliments from guests, look no further. In fact, the Kaylee chair has the potential to be just as great an heirloom piece as its more expensive counterpart.
