You can go globe-hopping to find beautiful items to decorate your home or to give as gifts without ever leaving the country—or even La Mesa, for that matter—when you shop at Cost Plus World Market in Grossmont Center. The exotic goods range from seagrass tote baskets woven in Indonesia to delicately scented soaps finely milled in Italy, plus a wide array of internationally inspired items for every room in your home.
“If you are looking to create a space that reflects your personal style and has a warm, welcoming atmosphere, Cost Plus World Market is a wonderful place to find unique home decor,” says General Manager Rick Saldivar. “Many of our pieces are crafted by artisans who are exceptionally skilled in their trade, and the sheer diversity of our selection means you are sure to find something that appeals to you.”
If you have an extreme home makeover in mind, Cost Plus World Market carries major home furnishing pieces. This means anything from armchairs upholstered in velvety jewel tones to dreamy beds with intricately carved mahogany headboards. Other types of furniture sold here include dining tables and chairs, sofas and coffee tables, and armoires and entry tables. If you have a specific design vision, there are collections grouped by particular aesthetics, such as Mid Century, Industrial, and Farmhouse. For an intimately sized house, apartment, or condo, the Small Spaces Collection is ideal. Finally, you can add a truly unique home decor flavor to your living space with the Artisan Collection. Among the eye-catching pieces are dazzling hand-painted cabinets echoing the patterns of 16th-century Mughal paintings from India and a graceful woven wicker chair from Malawi.
Perhaps you are just looking for an accent piece, something that will tie your room together. Cost Plus World Market offers a bounty of beautiful items to choose from. It can be something simple, such as lovely glass bud vases in soothing coral and aqua colors, or a throw pillow in a Southwestern motif. Or it can be something that really makes a statement, such as a bold and distinctively patterned area rug or a chandelier, ornately draped in whitewashed wooden beads, that casts a flattering glow in any room.
Many of these home decor items also make wonderful gifts, as do the many more personal items. Pull together a basket of pampering home spa gifts with the wide variety of bath soaps, shower gels, and body scrubs in several inviting scents. If you have someone who likes to cuddle up at home, you can’t go wrong with an embroidered robe, a set of floral pajamas, or a pair of cozy slippers. Fashionistas will find wardrobe staples in the assortment of tops, scarves, totes, and hats—and don’t forget the jewelry, which runs the gamut from simple but elegant pendant necklaces to swingy gold hoop earrings. You are sure to get a lovely thank-you note when you give a gift from Cost Plus World Market!
For the kitchen, the cookware, baking tools, linens, storage containers, and much more are fashionable as well as functional. Like the other departments at Cost Plus World Market, many of the kitchenware goods have a global flair. A terracotta tagine—a staple for cooking Moroccan-style dishes—looks terrific on a kitchen countertop. You can also make authentic Japanese dishes such as sukiyaki with a cast-iron hot pot noodle bowl. And classic French desserts are a snap to whip up in Emile Henry ceramic ramekins, which come in assorted colors. Need to stock up on some kitchen basics? You’ll find them here, including measuring spoons, ceramic mixing bowls, graters, can openers…the list seems practically endless. And with more offbeat items such as a mini citrus juicer or a doughnut-shaped cookie jar, you may discover things you didn’t know you needed but once you have seen them you wonder how you ever lived without them!
It is the rare shopper who leaves Cost Plus World Market without purchasing something from the food and beverage section of the store. It is renowned for carrying delicacies from around the world. Got a craving for Swiss chocolate, Australian Vegemite, Japanese gummy candies, or buttery Scottish shortbread? You can find them all here, as well as Italian pastas, English teas, Lebanese rosewater, and Indian curries. The beverage choices are equally diverse and fascinating. Sake, Prosecco, rosé hard cider, Canadian sparkling water, good old-fashioned American root beer, and the other beverages on hand all make for sensational sips that add lively flavor to a meal (and they are great for parties, too)!
