We might still be in the grips of winter, but our sights are now firmly set on warmer weather, thanks to West Elm's new spring 2018 catalog. Releasing a first look at the products we'll soon be seeing in everyone's home, the home décor leader offered a glimpse at the trends it predicts will be big this year.
"Each season our designers look at everything from cutting-edge architecture to age-old craft to nature to inspire exciting new designs—which will eventually become a pillow you fall in love with or your favorite chair in the house," the brand said in a statement.
This spring, the design team was inspired by layered forms in architecture, origami, and raw elements of metal and stone. If you only invest in one item from the new collection, it should be the Thea Chair, a blush accent chair inspired by the shape of two intertwined ribbons—expect to see it in every Instagrammable room.
Take a peek at the three biggest spring décor trends, according to West Elm:
"Our pure story is evocative of the idea of industrial refinement and the juxtaposition of mixed materials, inspired by abandoned industrial buildings that artists took over in the sixties," says West Elm. "Strong minimal furniture and polished details are combined with raw elements of metal and stone."
"In our modern concept, we are pushing our understanding of structure while finding inspiration from avant-garde architectural design and atmospheric elements," West Elm explained in a statement. Curved furniture is here to stay, with an emphasis on function and origami-inspired silhouettes.
"Our global concept is heavily inspired by travel, specifically Indonesia and the island of Bali. Rooms are calm and peaceful with artful pops of colors and pattern introduced."
