When did Wisteria become Z Gallerie?

The new "City Chic" collection looks like Z Gallerie.

That's not a good thing.

Z-gads. And that Fall of Rome coffee table is Restoration Hardware at its nadir.

Scary and nerve wracking... lets hope it's not headed in that direction... it's such a fabulous source!

it all sucks my butt.

You know, the last catalog I got had a few items that made me wonder, but not an entire room of it! Yuck. M.

I don't know why they are taking this turn in merchandise. I did an interview a few years ago of the Mother, who is an interior design of some reputation in Houston, and she was kind of hands on with their products.

I am as surprised to see this direction as you are.

I'm sure they think it appeals to a younger customer. But this is hideous. Although I kind of like that lucite shelf thingy but I don't want to see that in the pages of Wisteria.

This is hilarious!
I hate to admit what a cheesy, guilty pleasure perusing the hallowed halls of Z Gallerie can be on a hum-drum day. But still, I'd never want a roomful of it -- too much like a tacky Miami timeshare in general.
It seems Wisteria's been trying to branch out a little of late. They've been carrying so much of the same sort of thing the past several years.
It'll be interesting to see where this leads.

What's wrong with these people. This is bad. So bad.

Shall we talk about the quality of this stuff? Sheesh, resin at its worst....if one is gonna do it, do it well, or just don't do it. Couldn't get lipstick on this pig if one tried...

My verification word for this comment is 'diasterp'. I couldn't agree more.

My jacaranda is flowering (I am in Australia) and its just that colour - divine - but.....

that room is a nightmare!
Leave it to the trees I say :)

Alice - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

little boxes on the hillside, little boxes filled with ticky tacky...em-pha-sis on the tacky.

"My jacaranda is flowering" is the dirtiest thing I've read all day. But I agree, that color are lovely, just not here. But this room isn't even interesting enough for the Z; it's both bad and boring.

is that a lucite bookshelf, or am I seeing things?

Topaz said...

Wait, isn't that a room in Campion Platt's apartment?

This is awful. Shocking and awful.

So many bloggers (and people in general, for that matter) rep Z Gallerie. It's like Claire's of home decor.
