CB2 vs. Ikea, you be the judge

Is it just me, or does CB2's new Halogen credenza look just like Ikea's longstanding Torsby sideboard? (CB2's is on the top, Ikea's is on the bottom.)

While flipping through the new CB2 catalog this weekend I was shocked when I saw the resemblance. I happen to own the Torsby, maybe that's why I noticed.

Either way, they are both great pieces. The slick white finish, easy-to-slide drawers and convenient hole in back make them the perfect flat screen stand or dining room buffet.

Just for the record though, the Ikea version is the better deal at $299. The CB2 credenza will put you back $499.
