If you’ve been on the hunt for a design-forward piece that’ll complete your space, prepare to gobble up everything in West Elm’s latest collaboration with NYC design studio Bower.
Bower—from partners Danny Giannella, Tammer Hijazi and Jeffrey Renz— is known in the design community for its contemporary pieces that challenge and explore perceptions of depth, light, and self. And while most of their made-to-order designs cost thousands of dollars, their latest collab—and second with West Elm—is much more accessible.
The exclusive collection lets more people in on their cutting-edge designs as the seven-piece line features decor, lighting, and furniture with prices ranging from $70 to $499.
According to Jeffrey Hannoosh, Senior Vice President of Design for West Elm, “The second installment re-introduces Bower’s elevated, design-forward perspective to our everyday modern offerings with contemporary pieces that are reflective of their distinct style.”
The Bower team says that the collection was inspired by plant life and that every piece is meant to complement a variety of interiors. With this line, the design studio explored repeated discs and played with shape and scale by stacking them, slicing them, and separating them.
If that sounds as intriguing to you as it does us, keep reading to shop our favorite picks from the collection.
Nix your everyday glass vase and store your farmer’s market stems in this rich, $80 amber bubble vase. It’ll command attention atop a side table and is just as elegant when left bare among your collection of found objects. Snag it for yourself or consider it as the ultimate housewarming gift for your design-forward friends.
If you’re looking to upgrade your dining room or entryway, try out this antiquated brass pendant which just happens to be the Bower team’s pick of choice. The $199 fixture is “very clean and geometric, designed to embody an abstraction of our inspiration for the collection, which was the early stages of plant life.”
The Step Console Table is Bower’s nod to 80’s design. With a sturdy solid wood frame and two discreet drawers for stashing mail and other supplies, the $499 piece is striking as an entryway console or, for discerning decorators, even a dedicated work from home space.
