My C Jere Ripoff: The Perfect Wall Decor Solution

My C Jere Ripoff: The Perfect Wall Decor Solution

Like so many of you, I have vast, empty walls that I have no idea what to do with.  Our living room is the worst – it’s such a pretty room with terrific light but oh man that one long wall seems to go on forever.  I remember seeing it for the first time and thinking, “what in the world am I going to hang on this wall to make it look ‘complete’??”

Take a look at this beauty!

“Raindrops” sculpture by C Jere


That sculpture, my friends, is a C Jere ripoff by Jonathan Adler, and I couldn’t be happier with the punch of style it brings to our living room.

You  may not be familiar with C Jere – I wasn’t until recently!  Basically, “C Jere” is a cross between the names of metal artists Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels.  These guys were hot stuff in the 60s – think Mad Men style wall decor.



They fell out of favor for a few decades, but now their stuff is back with a vengeance – real raindrops sculpture by C Jere that was made in the 60s or 70s will now sell on ebay for somewhere between $5,000 and $9,000.


In a stroke of commercial brilliance, Jonathan Adler struck a deal with C Jere in 2007, and now manufactures some of the artists’ more iconic sculptures.  So, while I did pay $1800 for my brass Raindrops sculpture (*gasp!!*), compared to what a REAL one costs it’s a total bargain.  And I have to say it is cheaper than buying, say, an expensive painting, with arguably just as much design impact.


Here are some other pics of the iconic brass Raindrops – see how large it is?  I love the heft of this piece – it makes such a statement.

Oh it also comes in silver – the surfaces are quite reflective.  The silver / chrome doesn’t work in my personal space but I do love it for a super modern space:

Here’s someone doubling up on the Raindrops – what a great idea for a SUPER large wall:




I wish my pics didn’t come out so dark – the brass really does look lighter than this! –  but I think you get the idea.



I tell you, it feels so good to find a single wall decor solution that works for a large wall space.   Gives new meaning to the term One and Done!
