Hello 2017! It’s a new year and that means all new designs are hitting the stores. For Spring ’17, West Elm is all about “A New Vision of Modern” and I’m really loving the direction they’ve been evolving over the past few seasons. West Elm Creative Director, Johanna Uurasjarvi says “… the new modern is about designing for the way we live now…. inspired by a global vision with plenty of local touches… embracing change without sacrificing comfort…” What this really translates to is basically clean lines, great color combinations, and well made pieces that are both functional as well as great to look at. Totally Happy Mundane!
Here are a few of my favorites from the Spring 2017 collection:
First up are these Colorblock Vases. They could totally stand as a piece of sculptural art on their own. However, for this post’s cover shot, I couldn’t resist putting in a simple green flower.
Speaking of sculptural art, how cool are these Glass Disc and Marble objects. I love how simple and modern they are. They’d look great on a console or even by a window. I can’t decide which color I love most.. (which probably means I need them all?)
I think this Indigi coffee table would be great for a living room in a small space. The iron framework base keeps a light open feeling. The design was inspired by the geometric patterns found on traditional South African shweshwe fabrics. I also love the way they’ve styled it in this shot. I’ve been noticing a lot of red coming back into the design world lately, and I’m all for it! Red can be a tricky color to work with because it can quickly become overpowering. But as an accent, it adds a great classic punch!
Here are a few more favs:
Here’s a fun video they put out about the collection:
