Brooklyn-born furniture and home decor retailer West Elm recently opened its newest store at Central Square in Bonifacio High Street, four years after opening its first Philippine location at Estancia in Capitol Commons.
To mark the official opening of the store and commemorate the occasion, ceremonial toast and bell-ringing were headed by SSI Group Inc. president Anton Huang, Rustan Commercial Corporation member of the board Maritess Tantoco-Enriquez, and West Elm Global visual merchandiser Isaias Caballero.
Taking its cue from the global brand’s mission to enrich lives by harnessing the power of design and human connections, the new West Elm Central Square store is highly Instagrammable to say the least.
It prominently features West Elm’s fall 2018 collection as seen in its main pillar aesthetics for the season: Manhattan living inspired by a modern look; “organic architecture” inspired by the idea of clean, pure lines and colors; and Italy’s mid-century bohemian luxe vibe inspired by a global theme.
Designed to make an impact in everyday life, West Elm pieces are meticulously made to speak to people’s every life stage, decorating taste, and budget. For this season, modern, streamlined style, retro accents, textures, rich fabrics, prints, and bright pops of color will bring in bold and elevated style to homes.
Home design ideas
Liven up the living room with interesting colored furniture and chairs like the Rosanna Media Console in yellow lacquer, or the Phoebe chair in Pop Art Jacquard upholstery, or the Crescent swivel chair in Teal. If sleek, sexy leather is your thing, go with the gray leather Sloane sofa.
Velvet has always been synonymous with opulence and luxury. Indulge your velvet obsession with velvet seating and accessories like the Carlo Mid-Century Chair in Olive, Roar + Rabbit Swivel Chair in Blush Pink, or the Paidge Sofa in Ink Blue; and incorporate the Lush Velvet Chinoiserie Pillow or the Pressed Velvet Pillow Cover available in shades of Stone, Midnight, and Copper.
More is more when it comes to luxe pieces that set the mood in any room. Choose from floral pillows overlaid with geo crewel embroidery, deco-inspired lighting and retro encased glass vases, which you can match with the fall Faux Botanical Collection.
Layer on your personality and style with decorative accents like metal spun planters, chic trays, modern bar carts, and colorful woven rugs like the reversible Cecil Flatweave Rug with abstract pattern and the Alloy Rug and Mineral Rug in soft tones; and lush colorful throw pillows like the Cotton Canvas Pillow Covers and Textured Border Pillow Covers available in Dusty Blush, Midnight, Stone White, and Blue Teal.
For the bedroom, the Andes Deco Upholstered Bed which is designed with clean lines and fully upholstered on all sides has metal legs that instantly add a hint of glam; while the Stella Metal Bed in brass has a gently curving headboard with spindles and tall, tapering legs adding to the polished look.
In the Philippines, West Elm Philippines is located at Bonifacio High Street Central and Estancia at Capitol Commons.
