Coming soon.... West Elm

Earlier this week a friend texted me to ask if I'd seen the West Elm signs going up in a window on Denny Street. I hadn't, but a quick tweet to West Elm confirmed that they are opening a store in Seattle! West Elm has got to be one of my favorite stores, both for my own home and for clients (I've recommended sofas, rugs, curtains, the parson's desk and pillows to various clients!). Until now (well, October is the opening date) the closest location has been Portland. But now I'm excited to check out some of these lovelies in person: Ceramic measuring cups:


Fantastic rug:


Tabletop greenhouse:


Dhurrie-covered coffee table ottoman:


Architectural desk (so stylish!):


I love it all!

Hint: Even though West Elm is known for it's affordable but not "expected" furniture, I actually find LOTS of pretty kitchen things there. Don't miss it!

Seattle, mark your calenders for October!
