CB2 Surprise

I normally overall like CB2's offerings, but occasionally think that their goods look a bit too much like Ikea stuff for double or even triple the price.  Usually, there are a couple of fun accessories a season that I pine for and that is about it.  Of course, CB2 has also given us the ubiquitous (and delightfully priced) lucite cocktail table for everyman/woman's enjoyment. 

Remember me?  Still available for $249.00.

Let me tell you, I was very surprised and delighted to receive the new CB2 catalog last night, which featured its new lighting for the season.  The victory pendant is a real treat.  It is good looking...and far more luxey looking than the price tag indicates!

If you are seeking an industrial/galvanized light fixture, this is your winner.

I love the size and scale of these, esp. for $149.00 a piece. 

Pefect over the Big Sur standard from Crate and Barrel, in my humble opinion....

Or even over your kitchen island...

Still a fave kitch of mine from the Cottage Living Magazine (RIP) designer showhouse on Camp Street.

Please let me know if you have a project requiring the victory pendant.  I would love to see it in action.  Too good of a deal to pass up. 



P.S.  THANK YOU Gimlet Nation for all of your assistance with the Great Gray Paint Debate of 2010.  I will hopefully have something to show you relatively soon, especially now that I am armed and dangerous with your wonderful perspective and advice. 


  1. There's a wall hanging abacus that I am in love with at CB2 right now!! And the lucite coffee table is just perfection!

  2. what a coincidence! i was just flipping through the cb2 catalog - received it in the mail today - and started earmarking almost every other page - a step above the standard cb2 fare!
