CB2: First Look 2008.

I am really impressed with the new catalog from CB2! I’m happy to see that they’re moving away from the chocolate-stained, chunky-wood, “contemporary urban bachelor” look that they have been a little too fond of recently and into something more classic and modern. Here are my favorites from the new additions:

Clockwise from top left:
Graph desk ($299.00)
Marimekko Kikku linens ($29.95 – $109.00)
Marcel sofa $1,099.00
Halogen credenza ($499.00) My favorite, and it comes white, too! Very Florence Knoll-like proportions.

Clockwise from top left: 
Marimekko Kulkue wall hanging ($24.95 – $59.95) This is one of my most favorite designs from the illustrator I mentioned the other day, Maija Louekari. I so excited to see it in a smaller size than a standard bolt (but larger than a tea towel).
Script desk lamp ($59.95) Also in white.
Tessuto throw $39.95
Paloma vases ($19.95)

Clockwise from top left:
Hue dinnerware ($3.95 – $4.95)
Mondrian media console ($249.00)
Pulse pillow ($24.95)
Whit coffee table ($299.00) You really have to look at the top view to appreciate this table fully. The grain of the shesham wood is gorgeous.

    Love the couch… It’s like the one I wanted from Anthropologie, but affordable!

    I enjoyed the new CB2 catalog too, especially the addition of Louekari’s print (I love the homage to Tove Jansson). But I was really disappointed on my last visit to the CB2 store in Soho – many products felt and looked unbelievably cheap in person. Maybe this will go out the door when – like you said – they start moving away from the chocolate stain (which chips so easily, revealing the pine interior) and fill their stores with more textiles and durable dinnerware. The items you’ve curated here definitely seem to be good bets for the cream of the crop. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Stopped by CB2 today while I was in Soho. The new stuff looks and feels quality, a total improvement. And the Hue dinnerware? Even better in person. Earlier comment retracted.

    I have never purchased from CB2 but this latest catalog seemed to really be my style. I had not noticed the dinnerware, thanks for pointing that out.
