West Elm is a great resource for purchasing couches, coffee tables, and other furniture staples, but even if you’re already stocked up on the basics and are looking for some accents like artwork, planters, and trinket dishes to help complete your space, you’re going to want to check out what they have. Our latest obsession is the special section dedicated to products from local artisans—and the pieces are pretty darn cool (and within a budget-friendly price range, too!). See below for some of our favorites.

Yerbamala Designs Plant Hangers

We love the color blocking details on macrame artists, Alexis Oliva, and Yanira Lopez’s plant hangars that have the potential to elevate your indoor garden while also adding in some soothing textures and colors. You can have some fun by picking planters in colors that match the tones on the hangars or keep it simple and opt for white planters.

It’s hard resisting a beautiful throw and this one from designer Hillery Sproatt has an equally beautiful story behind its origins. The Los Angeles-based artists worked with a family-owned knitting mill to translate her Scandinavian-Japanese-inspired celestial art series into keepsake woven pieces.
