High/Low: Space Copenhagen Fly Sofa Set vs. Anthropologie Kalmar Sofa Set

March 28, 2018

The Fly Collection designed by Space Copenhagen for &Tradition has been on our radar for a while now, so when we came across the Kalmar armchair, ottoman, and sofa at Anthropologie, we couldn’t help but notice the strikingly similar design (and dissimilar price tags). Anthropologie’s furniture was sourced from designers District Eight in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and made with canvas cushions. Here’s our high/low comparison.
