We have long admired John Derian's work, but our budget hasn't allowed us to actually buy any of his pieces. Well, Target is our savior once again. Derian's collection for the retailer launches on September 7. Additional pieces will be added about a week later, and they will all be available for a limited-time only.
Rather than glass, Derian's line with Target consists of melamine and acrylic platters and paperweights that are digitally printed to look like his high-end decoupage work. But we actually like the Target materials because in addition to being budget-friendly they're dishwasher-safe.
The collection will also include scrapbook kits, frames, photo albums, gift bags, wall art and vases. The price range? Just $1.99-29.99. Not bad when you consider that his paperweights which feature layers of images beneath handblown glass usually retail for $30.
