Oliver Bonas has made stylish marble and gold homeware its signature, but the luxe interiors range has been given a run for its money with the launch of a look-a-like selection from bargain high street retailer Matalan.
Both brands offer everything from cushions to candles but it’s their alphabet drinks coasters, hanging chain photo frames and gold wire accessories that draw the most parallels.
While Oliver Bonas’ popular pieces will usually set you back as much as £10 for an alphabet coaster – with some now sold out completely, some of Matalan’s designs come in at just a third of the price.
Shoppers have been sharing their excitement at the discovery of Matalan’s Oliver Bonas ‘dupes’ with both brands offering similar stylish homeware designs. Their alphabet marble coasters have garnered most attention. Oliver Bonas’ (left) were £10 each while Matalan charges just £3 (right)

‘I am delighted to have found these! HIGHLY recommend!’
