New Fall 2011 Collection from West Elm

By poppytalk |

west elm introduced their Fall 2011 collection online yesterday featuring five brand new collaborations (including the Allegra Hicks collection that was recently launched through Elle Décor). Global inspirations and graphic prints highlight the collection.  Here’s a sneak peek of a few of my favorites.

(Above – Hand-blocked leaf pillow cover – Using intricately carved teak blocks and richly colored pigment dyes, artisans in the north Indian state of Rajasthan—whose work has been certified as authentic by the nonprofit organization Craftmark) have created these beautiful motif pillows.

Glass Jar Pendants – Industrial-chic pendant lights come in a palette that recalls the greens and grays of vintage bottles.

Papier-Mâché Animal Sculptures – As part of a collaboration with Aid to Artisans west elm worked with artists in Haiti to create these sculptures made entirely from recycled materials.

Glass Greenhouse – These house-shaped glass terrariums framed in copper capture condensation that helps various plants and succulents thrive

Medallion Shower Curtain – a classic Indian paisley motif printed on stone-white cotton.

Falling Flowers Trays – Inspired by Japanese flowers, graphically printed blossoms in cool hues are scattered over these porcelain trays.
