I know that clothes directly lifted from the 1980s have been readily available in mainstream stores for the last few years, but home furnishings?
Has Target discovered a long-lost shipping container of Jenny Kee homewares they lost track of in 1986? Because that's what this 'exciting new' range of designer homeware looks like.
To be fair, when Kee first released her home designs on the Australian market they were fresh and exciting. I'm sure I lusted after some of her zig-zaggy black and white ceramics at one time. But now, over 20 years later, they feel totally out of date. She seems to have used exactly the same designs as she used then.
What's next? Target targets koala jumpers as the next big trend for winter 2009? Or a range of Ken Done doona overs?
