"Pretty" Returns to World Market

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Do you have a World Market  in your area?  I stopped by my local store a few days ago and noticed that they seem to be returning to a "prettier", more colorful look.  This is quite a (welcome) contrast to the pallor of the Belgian/Industrial styles we've been seeing. I'm kind of excited about it!

They had lots of Chinoiserie-inspired prints
like these fabric-covered storage boxes.  
I also love these Ginger jar kitchen towels. Sadly, they're only offered in this peach color and purple.

They had a lot of elephants, too. This is another kitchen towel

In case you can't tell, that's a  lamp above.
World Market has so many great china patterns.  This elephant platter is part of a mix and match set.


This is another china pattern, this time featuring birds - another popular motif at World Market

These Chinoiserie bird panels are painted on burlap.  As beautiful as they are, I wish they offered more than just one design.  


These parakeets (they're curtain panels) call to mind Nina Campbell's lovely Perroquet.

Have you noticed any pretty things on the shelves lately?

World Market is not on the East Coast. I know it well, from when I lived in CA. I love it and am glad to see all of the pretty items. The prices are always great.

I have three locations within 20 minutes of my house - spoiled, I know.

I love their table linens. Such great patterns and colors and they wash up beautifully.

I haven't been in ages. Now it's on tomorrow's to-do list!

World market is like Pier 1 used to be 25 years ago. They just have so many cool things at a great price point.

Good to know! I haven't been over there in quite a while, but I think it's time to stop by!

World Market is a 1.5 hour drive for me, so I do not get there as often as I would like, but it looks like its worth a trip!

World Market is so hit or miss, but when they hit it's so good! I wish I still had access to one. Would love to pick up some of that china and am loving the parakeet panels.

We do have one near us and it's been ages since I have gone in. Recently I've been hearing about how great it is .. have they changed things up? I'm going to stop in the next time I'm in the area.
