I was kindof surprised to see this slipcovered sofa on JCP’s website.  I think it’s safe to say that JCP is stepping up their game.


Looks pretty darn good, right?  And what about the price? $900.  You can’t beat that.  I’m not sure about the quality because the reviews are mixed, but if you have a room that you won’t be using much this sofa would probably be great. 

And look at this mercury lamp


At $65 it’s a fraction of the cost of this lamp from Pottery Barn.


As far as window treatments go, JCPenney has long been one of my main hardware resources.  It might surprise you that a designer would buy window treatment hardware from JCP.  When it comes to basic, no frills hardware at a low cost though, they can’t be beat.  One of my favorite rods is the Studio ceiling mount rod.  I love it because you can mount it to the ceiling or the wall.


The thin profile is perfect.  Here’s an example from a project that I did a couple of years ago.

CR 9

Hopefully Penney’s will continue to step it up in the future.  I’m liking this new branding direction.
