My love affair with this brand continues.
In case you missed it ….
I’ll take you on my own personal tour of the West Elm store. The PR people may not have chosen
these exact words
but I’ll do my best interpretation (I did have a few cocktails of course — please don’t judge:)
I could totally see James Bond owning this coffee table. And by owning I mean rockin’ it in his bachelor pad.
Love the art. Although I think I might of made something like this in kindergarten. I’ll have to check my files.
And all of these accessories had me at hello.
I just can’t get enough of terrariums, honestly.
Is it me or is it gettin’ hot in here?
But I’ve saved the best bits for last. I have three completely useless trivia facts about the KOP West Elm store but I find them utterly fascinating. I hope you will too.
So, when West Elm opens a new store in a city they use building materials that are found local in that particular area.
Here are three examples of that from the KOP store:
Guess what their register desk is made of?
You’ll never guess. I had no idea until a girl shouted from the audience “Bread Pans!”.
At first I thought she said
pans (they kinda look like old bed pans, no? maybe?) and I’m getting kind of grossed out but then I heard them talking about rye bread… and I was like ohhhhhh
pans. I totally see it now.
Anyway the bread pans came from an old bakery that was located in North Philadelphia in the 1930’s.
The wood on the roof of the store’s
indoor atrium was taken from an old barn in Lancaster and re purposed. Pretty cool, huh?
So get out this weekend and check out the new West Elm store. Don’t live near here? check it out online. Love this company, their marketing message and so many of their products!
Have a great weekend and I hope you enjoyed my tour!
