Sophie's Other Choice: Anthropologie vs. West Elm

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We like to shop online as much as we like to shop on foot. But sometimes, the overwhelming selection of web merchandise leaves us torn between two similar items. Here, we'll ask you to pick for us. Call it Sophie's Other Choice. Feel the need to explain your decision? Hit up the comments.

On the left, we have Anthropologie's Kissing Pleat duvet. Cost: $248 for queen, $268 for king. Crucial details: Cotton percale, 300 thread count, available in white.

On the right, we have West Elm's pin-tuck duvet. Cost: $99 for queen, $119 for queen. Crucial details: Organic cotton, 230 thread count, available in white, "sea spray," "clay" and "natural."
