This New Sustainable Home Collection is Like if West Elm and Eileen Fisher Had a Boho Baby
Sometimes two companies are so aligned on certain principles and practices that it just makes sense for them to collaborate creatively—the only question really is why didn’t it happen sooner? That’s kind of the case with the big design news today: West Elm and Eileen Fisher are releasing a limited edition, sustainably-made collection of home decor and furniture using upcycled Eileen Fisher denim. Both companies have been interested in exploring circular design for quite some time, with the shared goal of creating products that last longer and have less of an environmental impact in their manufacture. This collaboration, in particular though, marks the first time that Eileen Fisher’s garment takeback program, Renew, has been used to create home goods.
The collection, which drops Tuesday, consists of eight products (seven pillows and one occasional chair) that were made to accent the boho bedroom or living room of your dreams. Pieces have an almost abstract, textural pattern to them, as each is felted from denim and other fabric scraps, meaning no two styles are exactly alike. The palette is what you’d expect from denim—predominantly shades of indigo blue with some bleached-out lighter shades—though there is a striking red pillow that could really warm up a cool-toned sofa. Pillow sizes run the gamut, from smaller lumbars to Euro sham-sized squares, and prices start at $159, which isn’t cheap but does reflect the unique, hand-layered construction of each item (as well as the repair and reconditioning of the upcycled denim). The long lumbar is a standout, particularly for a one-and-done solution for decorating the top of a larger bed. The swivel chair would make a great statement piece, too, in the right interior.
Pieces are available while supplies last. So if you’re looking for that final touch to offset all of your plant babies and light, bright walls, one of these pillows just might be it. You can shop the full collection at West Elm now.
