Cost Plus World Market® Launches “Spruce Up Your Space” Sweepstakes To Tie In With New Fall Collections

Grand Prize Winner to Receive $5,000 World Market Gift Card

OAKLAND, Calif. (August 12, 2013)—Cost Plus World Market® is debuting its stylish new
“Maison des Artistes” and “Glasgow Fog” collections this fall in stores and online at To celebrate the launch, the specialty retailer has kicked of its “Spruce Up Your Space” Sweepstakes. Now through September 6, 2013, customers can enter the sweepstakes at for a chance to win the grand prize of a $5,000 World Market gift card and a shopping experience and design consultation with a top home design blogger. In addition, a $1000 World Market gift card will be given to three runner-up winners.

The change of the season means a fresh look for the home and World Market has unique and affordable options this fall. The “Maison des Artistes” collection draws inspiration from the Art Nouveau period, a time in which artists returned to an appreciation of beauty, nature and handmade crafts. The new style is reflected in flowing organic lines and botanical images in warm, dusty colors, in shades of grey, taupe, olive and gold. The new collection from World Market features textiles in stripes, medallion, floral and peacock feather patterns; vases in soft, muted hues; and organic-shaped tabletop ceramics.

The “Glasgow Fog” collection brings to mind the Scottish Highlands and homes that were both shelter and retreat from the chilly weather of fall. An assortment of pillows in rich Jacquard, jewel-toned velvets and recycled wool tweed and houndstooth patterns soften the wood and metal furniture pieces. Adding to the rustic feel of the collection, World Market now carries a selection of fireplace accessory pieces including screens and log storage options. And, when you’re sitting in front of your warm hearth, don’t forget your favorite “cuppa” tea and biscuits that – along with many other imported food items from the U.K. – can be found at your nearest World Market store or online at
