Jonathan Adler for JC Penney: The Drool-Worthy, The Bland, and What's on Our Wish List

When we heard the famous potter and interior designer Jonathan Adler was collaborating with JC Penney to create an affordable home accessory collection, we jumped in the car.

Adler, who designed the Parker in Palm Springs and has 19 of his own namesake stores worldwide, has an iconic style that's whimsical, approachable, and downright enviable. Lucky us, his pieces, titled "happy chic" are now available and flying off the shelves at JC Penney. Here are our picks for the Drool-Worthy, the Bland, and a few pieces reserved for our Wish List (take note, friends ...):
