Ron Johnson may be out but designers Jonathan Adler, Terence Conran, Michael Graves & Martha Stewart are still in at the new JCP. The ex chairman executive, Ron Johnson, is the reason I’m now a customer of JCP. Until his ambitious endeavor to revamp the cheap and boring JCPenny, I would have never looked to that store for home decor.

My must haves include closet organizers from Michael Graves, graphic throw pillows and greek inspired dinner wear from Jonathan Adler, furniture from Conran and party supplies from Martha Stewart. Trust me, you will be surprised at the goods. Definitely a site worth saving to your favorites.

How to shop House Beautiful: Brass Lobster

Brass Lobster from Flessa Design 1st Dibs, Brass Lobster from Etsy

Always hunting for brass creatures, I couldn’t resist a shiny lobster I saw in the June issue of House Beautiful. The internet makes it incredibly easy to source items once left to the trade or world traveler. In less than 5 minutes I sourced and purchased the lobster for $155 dollars less than the lobster shown in the article. I’ve found a few more should you want one for your collection.

1. “Vintage Large Embattled Solid Brass Lobster Crayfish Crustacean Sculpture AS-IS” eBay $9.99

2. “HOLLYWOOD REGENCY MID CENTURY MODERN BRASS SHRIMP LOBSTER CRAWFISH CRUSTACEAN” ebay $19.99 or best offer

3. “BRASS SHRIMP CRAYFISH LOBSTER PRAWN WALL DECOR ANIMAL SEAWATER SHELL FISH OCEAN” ebay $34.95

*Don’t overlook tarnished pieces. Brass is easy to polish with Cape Cod polishing wipes.
