The closest I could get to Jonathan Adler and Michael Graves

You know how much of a die-hard Jonathan Adler fan I am. Actually, I admire all the great designers past, present and future over-all, but JA is one of my faves.

So last week, I finally got a chance to be close to JA... his stuff rather, at JCPenney. I would be ecstatic and tearful if I ever get to meet the man for real! But for now, I am satisfied to be up close and "personal" with his works.

And knowing JA's love for color, will show you what I saw according to that..


The acrylic tray is as cute as it is online!

The poufs are pretty cute!

My fave  those sun-burst pillows!

Just look at the details! 

Love the pattern on the bath mat



Those chevron melamine plates look pretty cool

Gorgeous lamps - got the cute little one on the right

Love that green vase

Love the blue vase too

My most favorite of all - these navy poufs are just gorgeous in person!

I also "bumped into" Michael Graves. Yes, like you, I've "bumped" into him over at TARGET, but somehow, his items didn't shine as much,  since over a TARGET they placed his stuff all over the store, not collectively like here at JCP.

Love that cool steel-brick bread box

Modern Enamel-cast cookware

Space-age small appliances

Decorative stuff


My fave is the turquoise and brass one

Love the wooden clock/shelf on the right

I also saw this awesome Celine trapeze bag look-alike over at the same store!Would've grabbed it only, I have a favorite trapeze bag already :-)

The original Celine Trapeze on Kate Walsh

Cosmopolitan by JCPenny version ;-)

There you have it folks, hope these 2 guys are already at your local JCP.

And oh, other than them,  I also "got to meet" JOE FRESH, and I'm totally smitten with this guy too!

Happy Shopping!


  1. wow I didn't know that JC Penny carries all of these items. I never had been to a JC Penny in recent time to tell you honestly. But I love JA's cherokee desighs. In fact I'm looking for an area rug that is very similar to the cherokee pattern with yellow and grey.
    Thanks for sharing these finds.

  2. I need to take a trip to Penny's amazing pictues and accessores. I also love the fact that you have the same apple bell, isn't it fun. I have had mine for years, and I am sure you have too Hugs, Marty

  3. I'll have to check back at my local JCP. I was very disappointed when they did not have anything but renovations under way after the launch everywhere else.

  4. Thanks for taking us shopping with you!! I got to actually look at everything in peace rather chasing a 3 year old around. My eye totally went to those blue pouffs as well. Do you recall how much they were? Of course I have no clue where I'd put one at this point, but I'd find a place if the price was right.

    1. They were $99 each Christina. I think totally worth it but still, I know, they'll go on sale eventually and hopefully, I can snag them then!

  5. I have been seeing the JA collection all over the place and I must get to JCP and see it in person:)

  6. Looks like some fabulous shopping! Would love to see a display of JA products like that:)
