Patrick's got the dope. Indeed, it is true, the arrival of the newest West Elm catalog brings a new style sensibility and lifts us out of the expresso wood and purple pillow haze we have been in for the past year.
Patrick says: New Spring stuff is in at West Elm (new catalog and site) and some nice new stuff. They've also added (some) wood color "caramel" to their previously chocolate-only line. Very cool woven screen, an expanded but basic-in-a-nice-way line of linens, Tucker-Robbins-esque primitive side table, and more. Hey, here (and several other places... Room & Board, Crate & Barrel) I'm seeing more and more bar-height dining options... We also love the new Offset Table lamp ($20) and the Tiered Pendant Shade ($69). What great prices! (Thanks, Patrick!) MGR
