I quite like the lighting that I've seen so far from this line. There seems to be a nice mix of masculine and feminine options with classic shapes and styles that will not date.
More Martha Home Products
Martha fans continue to send in photos of the new Martha Home line at JC Penney as the products slowly begin to filter into the stores. These are from my good friend Kenn in Michigan who spotted several lamps and window coverings bearing the Martha Home label at his local JC Penney this past weekend. The 'stores within stores' concept for the Martha brand will be revealed in May once JC Penney finishes its home department renovations. That is when we'll see official Martha displays take shape. Until then, the Martha products are being displayed on simple shelves. From what we have seen so far, the products are more akin to the Martha Stewart Everyday line that was once sold at Kmart. For those of you who have not read about it yet, the judge presiding over the Macy's vs. JC Penney case has ruled that both department stores must go into mediation to resolve their dispute over sharing the Martha Stewart brand. A full Martha Stewart line of bedding, bath items and kitchen items was planned for JC Penney but these products will be put on hold until the conflict is resolved, since Macy's is contesting the sale of these categories of goods at JC Penney. In the meantime, four categories of Martha Stewart products will be in stores this month: Lighting, Celebrations, Window and Pantry. Stay tuned!
