When we heard that Commune Design and West Elm were collaborating on a project together, we knew we’d fall in love at first sight, or should we say love at first seat? When you see how amazing the shearling armchair, linen sofa, and sling chairs are, you’ll forgive us for succumbing to puns. Seating aside, the entire collaboration is a bohemian dream, balancing affordability with practicality and quality, thanks to a holistic design approach that saw architects and craftsmen join together in the creative process.

Commune typically works with smaller-scale, high-end artisans, so the brand’s partnership with West Elm allowed them greater exposure at a more accessible price point, while as designer Roman Alonso explains, "maintaining the integrity of the Commune aesthetic." 

We know exactly what aesthetic he’s talking about. Indeed, the collection reflects the iconic, effortless beauty of the California pace and landscape through the use of honest materials, playful details, and traces of Japanese, Scandinavian, and Latin American midcentury design. The result is nothing short of easy, cool sophistication. And on that note, take a look through some of our favorites from the collection.
