West Elm Heads South

After their introduction of Clinton Friedman a few months ago, West Elm is going South African.... lots of furniture, fabric, pottery and other deliciousness. Well done, West Elm!



Here's a snippet from furniture designer, John Vogel, who designs riempie chairs (riempie is when strings of leather are woven tightly to form the seats of the chairs. Can't get more South African than that!)



My favourite? The wishbone-inspired riempie chair. To die for in that red!
