Commune’s New West Elm Collection is a Study in California Cool
The American Trade Hotel in Panama, the Ace in Palm Springs, Heath Ceramics in San Francisco — for more than a decade, Commune has been the design firm behind these kinds of universally loved — and mega-Instagrammed — interiors. Slightly more under-the-radar are the Los Angeles studio’s frequent furniture and object collaborations, which over the years have included everything from concrete tiles and rust-colored sofas to room fragrances and fireplace tools. But their latest collaboration brings Commune’s distinct brand of California cool to the masses — a 50+ piece collection with West Elm, which launched yesterday and includes fuzzy shearling club chairs, tasseled pillows, copper sconces and mirrors, chic armless sofas, geometric tapestries, and lots and lots of warm, West Coast–inspired vegetable-tanned leather. We kind of want one of everything — here are some of our favorites, below.
