West Elm


I have had some hits and misses from West Elm over the years. While their quality can be a bit spotty, I am still a fan of the instant gratification they provide when it comes to affordable, trendy furniture and accessories.

This month, Nylon Magazine introduces us to the woman behind-the-trends, West Elm's design director, Aimee Miller. The decorating concept for her own Brooklyn apartment is similar to the one she employs at work--clean lines, mid-century style furnishings and a sculptural approach to storage.

I can't tell if that's a Les Indiennes pillow on her sofa, a West Elm I didn't know about, or something else entirely.

I've liked many things from West Elm but haven't taken the plunge yet and bought anything. Perhaps I should!

Great post! I love learning about interesting and creative people! The first photo is great. I'm such a sucker for a gallery wall and hers is fabulous!

The organic stacking of shoe boxes is my kind of sculptural approach to storage. Just great! I really like your pick of images here.

Hi - never knew who was behind the designs - thanks for posting. My daughter designed her room around one of the their cutout headboard platform beds. The quality is good for the price - great for young married couples and single working people.

Thanks!

She has such a wonderful style. Simplistic yet eye catching. It's very charming.
