BEST OF: CB2 Fall Line

Summer's barely begun when inboxes are inundated with retailer's prompting us to check out their new Fall lines.  And while I mentally can't fathom the thought of actual Fall yet, I jump at the chance to explore the season's trends and compile my wishlists.

I'm a pretty big fan of CB2.  The overall aesthetic is a little more modern and sleek than my own, but they are a great go-to for affordable serveware (i.e. bowls, cutting boards, cheese plates) and quirky accessories (i.e. vases, planters, candle holders).  In fact, for the price, I am continually surprised by the heaviness and durability of the ceramics.

Here are my favorite picks from CB2's new arrivals.  While there are still plenty of the brand's characteristic bright teals, oranges and graphic prints, they've given us some great neutrals this season (wood, brass, cream, and pretty caramel leathers): RECCO: use the arrows to scroll and click on the underlined hyperlink vs. the pic for product page

NOTE: Always read dimensions before purchases. Oftentimes, CB2's items run a bit smaller than you think. Given the retailers modern focus... the beds, nightstands and coffee tables tend to be low to the ground (and subsequently smaller in scale).
