Stuff We Love: Lovely New west elm Collaborations! Plus: An Exclusive $500 Giveaway


It’s no secret that the editors of California Home + Design are big fans of the beautiful offerings from west elm. And—really—who doesn’t love their clean-lined pieces, subtle color palettes, and unexpected designs? It’s a shop that proves that you can get chic, luxe-looking pieces for the home at less-than-designer prices.

Our latest obsession? We’re loving the beautiful ocean-inspired designs they’re doing this spring with glass and ceramic artists John Newdigate, Oakland-based Maria Moyer, and Michele Michael of Brooklyn’s Elephant Ceramics. Check our some of favorite finds!

John Newdigate
One our favorite things about living in California is living so close to the ocean. Newdigate may be South African rather than California, but his glazed ceramic dishware west elm collaboration shows that he has that same appreciation. His sea-inspired dishware (above) is the perfect way to celebrate coastal living everyday. Wave Dinnerware Set, starting at $24.

Maria Moyer
We’ve long loved Maria Moyer. The artist splits her time between New York City and Oakland, but draws much of her inspiration from Southern California, where she spent her childhood. In her west elm collaboration, Moyer draws on the beauty of plankton. We love that her pieces are presented in clean white, letting the form speak for itself. Even better? Five percent of the purchase price of each of these pieces gives back to Maria Moyer Orb Vases, $99.

Elephant Ceramics
We first fell in love with Brooklyn-based Elephant Ceramics when we saw her pieces featured in an issue of Martha Stewart Living. Her organic, less-than-perfect forms are refreshing and perfectly pretty. Her exclusive line of stoneware vases come in sweet blue hues inspired by summers spent in Maine. Elephant Ceramics, starting at $19.
