I was in the city for a client meeting this past Wednesday and I found I was early so I dodged into CB2 on Third Avenue. Great store and very helpful staff! There seems to be a new trend or new found appreciation for Typeface. If you are a word nerd or font junkie, CB2 has some great Typography accents to modernize your home: different scales from small to large, single words or single letters, multiple words, oversized numbers, and blocks of text. Each typeface imbues its own personality, check it out!
Cuckoo for numbers spelled out one thru twelve? Love this large clock called ‘Type 39 clock' that showcases radial black topography powdercoated on white metal. $199

Relax don’t do it!! Ok, it commands you to ‘RELAX’ with upper/lowercase 3D letters in different colors. It is iron with powder coat finish.  Sort of expensive $299

Shall we crunch numbers or try to figure out how to tell time on this ’Dropped number 23" clock’? It’s a graphic jumble of tonal grey digits on a white background. $99.95

Jump up and down’ 100 percent cotton duvet breaks all those bedtime rules! Would make a statement in a little boys room! For a set $99.95

Yellow ‘The End’ props books up with stenciled typography lasercut in MDF. Great pop of color in a bookcase. Only $14.95

A collage of random letters, numbers and symbols modernizes this porcelain plate-ware set called 'text message.' How cool would your table look for a dinner party?  Only $7.95

Handtufted wool rug declare independence. Designers freely express!!

Come back every Tuesday, as I will post TRENDS at the following stores: CB2, Crate and Barrel, West Elm, Home Goods, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Target and Room and Board.
