West Elm is said to be launching in a new direction this fall. Through the styling of their Fall collection, it seems that they are following some trends we've been seeing for a while — mixtures of old and new and the use of warm wood tones and lots of texture. Regardless, after a quick perusal of their new items I quickly had a full shopping bag.Here are some of my favorites from West Elm's Fall Preview:
(FROM LEFT TO RIGHT):
1 - I've been searching for a boldly patterned rug that still remains neutral and the Kite Kilim Rug could be my solution. It's like the perfect compromise between a zigzag rug and West Elm's old Moroccan rug. Also pictured are the Bookshelf Side Table and the Jute Cube.
2 - I recently did a roundup of masculine bedding and I'd like to add the Totem Duvet and Shams to that set. The "tribal" yet somewhat whimsical pattern is done in a great neutral combination of platinum and slate.
3 - My new workspace has been begging for a "not your ordinary" task lamp. The Loft Task Lamp's combination of iron, wood and a metal shade is the perfect mix of retro industrial goodness. It's also available as a Loft Floor Lamp.
4 - Dirty laundry is a necessary evil, but ugly hampers don't have to be. The Ikat Woven Collection features two different sizes of woven grass baskets in a black and natural pattern. Unfortunately the bench pictured is not for sale.
5 - Attention small space dwellers, the new Tripod Table is a perfect modern bistro table for your non existent dining rooms and breakfast nooks. Just go bold with it and get it in the Saffron as the White and Chocolate tables are so expected.
All of the items above are already available online, but previews of more new items set to launch in August are also available at Elements of Style: West Elm Fall Preview and Poppytalk: West Elm Fall 2010 Preview.
