John Derian at Target
I'm a huge fan of New York collage artist John Derian and was thrilled to find out last year that he was joining the roster of artists who have designed collections for Target. Some of last year's pieces achieved almost mythical status, disappearing as soon as they hit the store shelves. So I was totally psyched to find out he was back again this year, with fabulous items like these two trays:
The collection includes mugs, notebooks, covered boxes, organizers, dishes, notebooks and more. I was bummed that there was no wrapping paper or tissue this year, but their marketing department never called to check with me on that. Oh, well. Check this stuff out -- the paper items are on the end caps near the stationery, while the dishes and organizers are in with the housewares. Happy hunting! xo
