The West Elm fall catalog has just landed, and it's enough to make us forget about summer and embrace the new season. The anticipated first look at new products gives us a taste of the trends that will be big this fall, and at first glance, it's clear that fiery autumnal tones are out—and cool, serene shades are in. Highlights include gray and washed-out blue orb chairs and plush bedding that'll instantly transition your bedroom into a sanctuary.
Surprisingly, products aren't the only focus. In the new catalog, West Elm also calls out how your sofa, rug, and accessories are made, and, more importantly, by whom. The brand has pledged to have 40% of its products fair trade–certified by 2020, which involves verifying that all factories have fair wages, safe working conditions, and adhere to environmental standards. It's a great reminder that every item in your home has been made by a person, and the brands you choose to support have a ripple effect on their lives.
Take a peek inside West Elm's fall catalog, and find out which trends we're embracing for fall.
New products take cues from midcentury-Brazilian design, which "marry sensuous curves and artful angles with richly grained woods and a focus on craftsmanship," the new catalog reads.
Our love of spatterware pottery reaches new heights with West Elm's graphic, modern take.
"Shapely silhouettes, unexpected forms, and mixed materials," continue to dominate this season, although the color palette has shifted from warm, dusty hues to cool, muted tones.
Naturally, the bedroom is a major focus as the temperature drops, and West Elm's latest bedding suggests gray and blue will be big. Layer different shades and textures for an ultra-luxe look.
What's on your fall wish list?
