Decor to Score from CB2

May 18, 2009

Perhaps I’ve been living under a rock, but there is a new catalog I am getting in the mail for the last few months that features some modern and hip decor that, how shall I say, rocks.

CB2 is a sister store of Crate and Barrel, with a few stores in NYC, LA, Chicago, SF and Berkeley. It features modern decor that is edgy, hip and contemporary. For someone like me who leans traditional, I find myself strangely drawn to many of their modern accessories. Am I the only one left on the planet who is just hearing about this line of affordable decor?

Here are my new favorites:

Sprout Bottle Vases, $5 to $8

    I would get the Phantom lamp for my new sunroom. And a bunch of the Whirly Hanging Candleholders to hang from trees for an outdoor party!

    I love the candlesticks and that pebble mat looks heavenly. I have to admit, though, while I drooled over some of that stuff, I kept thinking “aw, I could make that out of a thrift store item!” :)

  3. Diane says:

    The candlesticks are incredible. And, for some reason, the funky/modern TV tray tables are also appealing. I could see them as side tables in my office.

  4. Beverly says:

    Definitely the bamboo pendant lamp!

    I would get the Caymen plates in green. Dishes are the only decor thing that doesn’t get stashed in storage right now while I live with the in-laws. I just found your blog last week through the Nester and LOVE it!

    I love cb2! I’ve been getting the magazine and emails for a while now, so I must say you might have been living under a rock haha! Love your picks though. They ROCK!

    I too <3 CB2. I have the lumiere candlesticks in my bathroom. What amazing prices for such loveliness.

    I’ve never heard of CB2, so thanks for the heads up :)

    I love the mercury vases as well as the hour glass set. We are redecorating our master bdrm. and these accents would be perfect! And bonus…they’re not budget breakers!!!

    These glasses

    I love them. They look like clear dixie cups but they are glass! I love how funky yet raditional they are. I have been dying to order them for some time now.

    This is way too trendy. Nothing timeless or classic. It’s hip and young, but that’s about it. Next year it will be so……out! It all seems so wrong.

    I am sorry, I dont care for any of it. It all seems to trendy/modern and that is not my style. Just my personal opinion though….
    I am on a budget so when I decorate I try to add peices that are timeless or that at least will not be out of style next year.

    Oh dear GOD. I have to stop myself on a nearly daily basis from going on a CB2 shopping spree. Doesn't help that I'm in Chicago and therefore WAY too close to the store to be good for my wallet.

    Either way, I have managed to stop myself from purchasing this shower curtain, although I am obsessed with how well it would match my turquoise bathroom and make the teeny space just POP.

    I'm waiting for it to go on sale because $35 for a shower curtain is pushing it for me. Feel free to cross your fingers for me! ;)

    You know…that pebble foot massage mat would be really easy to do with a few bags of the pebble from the dollar store and a tray..hmmmmmm

  14. I really like the tier drop vases. Do you know if those can hang flush against a wall?

    Love the candlesticks and the hanging teardrop vases. Can just see the sun shining through them… You could pick up some great faux flowers and fill the bottom of the vase with acrylic. Looks like fresh flowers in water hanging. Beautiful and no maintenance!
