Yep, you read that correctly. Jonathan Adler has a collection for the ubiquitous chain store J.C. Penney. If you aren’t familiar with Jonathan Adler he’s awesome…ly expensive (also, I did a post about him a while back – here). His designs are amazing and bold and crazy and insanely expensive so when I heard that he did a collection for JCP I was super excited! Thankfully there are quite a few affordable options in his collection and a lot of seriously awesome stuff. Let’s have a look shall we?
This cheery kitchen set is $8, $12, and $18 respectively. Not cheap, but not outrageous either. I love all the patterns and there is also a pink and orange set.
It’s no secret that I love books and since book ends are like book accessories I’m always looking for a new set. I love love love these apple bookends. Adorable. And for $38 they aren’t outrageous (especially considering similar bookends from Jonathan Adler’s collection are $195).
Sweet cherry picture frame for only $15.
This classic Greek key patterned picture frame is very cool for only $15.
This lamp is only about a foot high and costs $28 but it is seriously adorable. I love the color of the shade.
Owl lamps are everywhere but I’d bet that Jonathan Adler was the first to design one (he’s famous for figurines and statues). This little gem is about 20″ tall and costs $35.
I don’t know if anyone really needs a huge serving bowl. I think I have a few that I use like once a year, but if you don’t buy useless kitchen stuff what will fill all those cabinets you have? Plus, this is beautiful and for $35 it would be a lovely gift for a friend.
I love love this acrylic tray. The pattern is so happy. Trays are one of those weird decorating things that you don’t really need but you can always find a place for. And it’s only $25!
I know it’s girly but I love throw pillows. Any time I am sitting on a couch or chair I have to have a pillow on my lap. I’m not sure why but it’s comforting. Since I need to have one anyway why not make them super beautiful like this cheery flower pillow for $32.
Or this bold ‘X’ pillow for $35.
So what do you guys think? Are you a fan? I am so excited that all these designers are doing affordable versions of their collections.
Maybe some day I’ll be able to afford a ‘real’ piece of Jonathan Adler’s work, but until then I am happy to get the ‘cheap’ version.
