Two Great New West Elm Collaborations

West Elm has become known for partnering with artists and designers as of late, and their list of collaborators is now quite extensive. This fall their market line features a collaboration with Sebastian Conran and Universal Expert, while their art selection has been updated with a collaboration from Minted. The Universal Expert collection features items that are “beautifully useful”, with a minimal design aesthetic, while the Minted collaboration features a range of crowd sourced prints from a variety of artists with everything from photography to abstract design, all framed, and many under $150.
