Cindy Crawford: She's still got it...

Style :









I will admit that I am a Cindy Crawford for JC Penney veteran, as I (along with everyone else in the design blogosphere) bought the faux bamboo footstool a while back.  But not realizing what a wealth of affordably chic furniture and accessories Cindy has designed, I hadn't checked out the JCP website in a while. When I was reading Aesthetic Oiseau the other day, Daniela posted about a pair of obelisks from Cindy Crawford's line for JC Penney.   I thought I would check out what she has to offer, and boy I was not disappointed! 





How cute are these red and orange plates?  They also come in turquoise and green and are a great way to brighten up your table for summer.




Flora Plates, $20 for set of 4





Isn't this metal bookshelf with fretwork detailing so pretty?  I'd scrap the "java" (*shudder*) paint in a heartbeat (maybe turquoise or red instead?) and style it a bit, and we bet you'd never guess it was from JCP!












Wouldn't this cane-bordered indoor/ outdoor rug be perfect in a room that sees alot of action?  And only $200 for an 8x10- you can't beat that!






Cane-border Rug, $200 for 8x10





I am loving this ceramic bamboo-handled pitcher.  So pretty for your summertime entertaining!  While I wouldn't normally advocate spending only $20 on a wedding gift, gosh, this is just such a pretty pitcher (and I would have loved to receive it as a wedding gift, regardless of the price).  It would be a great hostess gift too!










Etageres are such an elegant way to display your books and collectibles.  Once again, we'd forgo the "metallic java" finish and paint it a glossy black or maybe white.




Etagere, $165





This lamp looks so pretty.  I bought a lamp at JCP several years ago and was amazed at how good the quality was.  This lamp's details look much nicer than its $50 counterparts that you would find at Homegoods.




Aqua Ceramic Lamp, $80 including shade








How fun are these orange cane-print placemats for summer?  Use them indoors or out!  These too would make a great hostess gift or wedding shower gift!

And of course, what drove me to check out the JCP website in the first place...  These would be so pretty on a bookshelf (maybe the one above or the etagere).








We will certainly admit that some of her designs leave a little something to be desired.  For instance:





A polyester valance...







This $160 vase...







Or this necklace, which could easily be mistaken for something with "lots of danglization" and "sparklization," as described by the long-finger-nailed girls on Jewelry Television...







But in spite of a few misses, her collection does seem to have some hits!  Will you be buying any of it?
