Modern loft living room with armless sofas, Commune design for west elm via @thouswellblog(via west elm)

West elm has partnered with L.A. firm Commune Design for a collaborative collection that brings a modern California look to a selection of products ranging from furniture to art. The collection is striking for its strong silhouettes, simple geometric shapes, and its warm, neutral palette. Commune used a variety of materials, from leather and terracotta to striking copper like in this modernist wall sconce. The collection feels like an encapsulation of the Commune aesthetic, and it’s exciting to see the transition from opening their first retail location in 2009 to designing this collection, bringing an element of bespoke design that is found in their design projects to the middle market. If I had to pick favorites I would say that this throw pillow and this funky leather stool really caught my eye. Find all my favorites from the new collaboration after the jump.

P.S. Sofas, sectionals, and chairs are now 20-30% off at west elm!
