Splurge vs Steal: Striped Throw Blanket

Those who know me in real life (and online, I guess) know that I refuse to spend three-digit sums of money on throw blankets or pillows.  If I see one I love, I'll find an alternative or I will not have it at all because I am both stubborn and (selectively) practical. 

Lately, I've been on the hunt for a graphic throw blanket to drape over my couch and add more pattern to my living room.  I've long admired classic striped throws, and want something washable since I have indoor dogs.  Luckily, I stumbled across a $19.99 gem at Ikea that is a dead ringer for a $99 throw from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I'm sure the more expensive blanket is softer, but I have plenty of other throws to roll around in.  This one is decorative, and I'm pretty happy to have saved $80!  Here's how I'm using it (excuse the crappy phone picture):

Exciting stuff, huh?  What lookalike products have you come across lately?
