Shopgirls Picks of the Week

Cheryl's Pick: John Derian

Cheryl's pick this week is John Derian. Actually, Cheryl's pick every week is John Derian. Both of us love his decoupage plates and paperweights. And, since the entire shop is 20% off right now, it would be a great time to start your collection.

John Derian is a New York artist whose popularity has been growing at a rapid pace for the past several years. He's an avid collector of antique prints, ledgers, and letters. He hand-paints borders and patterns and combines these elements into collages which are then reprinted and pieced together under in layers under glass.

Look for his work in many decorating magazines, and see the real deal right here in your very own Joli.

Allegra's Pick: Aquiesse

One of the most luxurious portfolios of fine home fragrances found anywhere. OK. That's what the brochure says. What I say is that I am totally in love with these candles (completely smitten). The sophisticated glass containers work in any decor, and the scents are just fabulous.

Made with organic soybean oil and lead-free wicks, these candles come in fragrances like Pacific Lime Blossom, Luxe Linen, Timber, Mandarin Tea, and Grapefruit Spearmint (plus another one called Rioja, but the name doesn't do justice to the lush scent).

We'll be burning the testers all week long. Come smell them and choose your favorite!
