I am really looking forward to checking out the to new West Elm store that just opened in the city! Hooray no more treks out to Oak Brook, where until now the only IL store existed!
West Elm, to me, reflects some key elements when looking for home or office furnishings: Simple, Modern & (mostly) Affordable. Their style really doesn't waver away from the simple side of things, which is why you can add a piece to your space whatever your taste may be and it usually works!
A HUGE bonus is that many of the items at West Elm come assembled, so no accidently screwing through the new TV stand you just purchased...whoops! If furniture is not what you need, I am seeing lots of textures and accent pieces that would compliment most tastes...definitely want to curl up with one of those throws!
I love these clips shown for curtains but the clips could certainly be used for hanging art work, pictures, or dried flowers. I could also totally use them in my accessory closet (yes I have an accessory closet-very handy when getting ready) to hang small towels, scarves, headbands or whatever! Really anything would look great hanging from these clips!
I am really digging these "Scoop Back" chairs that I came across, so FUN! The grey striped chair seems to be calling my name, tres chic.I wonder if their comfortable or awkward?
So without stepping a foot in the store, the only foreseeable downside is that it's located where every other store happens to be off North Ave, so getting there will be an adventure-any takers?
