Marcel Wanders for Target
A new collection of home décor pieces by Netherlands designer Marcel Wanders is set to roll out to Target stores in time for the holiday selling season. The line encompasses giftable items, most priced at $25 or less.
Titled Marcel Wanders for Target, the new limited-edition tabletop and home decor collection portrays the designer’s whimsical style on the more than 40 decorative pieces, such as dinnerware, ceramic vases, pillar candles, stockings, ornaments and wrapping paper. Prices will range from $2.99 for place card holders to $39.99 for a tree skirt.
Check out Marcel Wanders' official website, and you'll see that he has quite a quirky design aesthetic. The vase at left (from his full-price line) is in fact from his “snotty” collection and is based on – no lie – a “3D scan of airborne snot”. One of the 5 vases in this collection is in fact called “Influenza”. Talk about quirky!
