old is new at Target

And this news is a bit old. A while back I noticed an ad for a new line at Target which looked curiously old-fashioned. For the most part, I associate Target with modern and clean, bright colors. However, I have to admit I was attracted to the classic illustration style featured on some of the items. I made a mental note to write a blog entry about it.

Fast forward a few weeks, or perhaps a month, and I am finally writing about it. The line at Target is by John Derian. Apparently it is for a limited time. Who is John Derian? Judging by his lovely website he sells quality home decor items in his signature style, albeit at a different price point. Take a look at this great painting below (I do seem to have a thing for stark black and white flora). Explore a bit. If nothing else the site is a visual feast.

  1. I noticed it the other day when I was there...I had to really check it out, very different from Target's "normal"
