Top Furniture Picks From West Elm's Newest Mid-Century Collection
West Elm, a favorite of so many interior designers, released a new mid-century modern collection that has the entire Spacejoy team swooning. Muted neutral tones, simple silhouettes, and perfectly distressed materials create a gorgeous collection of sleek home pieces that will upgrade your home for years to come.
When looking for aesthetically pleasing storage space, designer Micaela Farley recommends the Streamlined Tiered Side Table. “While the top surface can be utilized for lighting and decorative accents, the bottom surface is great for housing books or setting down your morning cup of coffee!” she adds. Lots of surface on both shelves area allows for you to add your own personal touches like family photos and house plants without it becoming cluttered. Micaela also loves the Elliot Stacking Dining Chairs for space-saving since they can be stacked and tucked away when not in use.
When decorating small spaces, designer Maria Castillero recommends the multifunctional Mid-Century Console With Mirror. Featuring two drawers and a tall mirror, you can take advantage of extra storage space in a spot you may not normally have it. The slim silhouette allows for it to be stationed against the narrowest of walls.
Designer Heather Wise loves the Metalwork Console with Marble Top for its edgy and industrial feel. She’d personally finish it off with a large round brass mirror on the wall above. She also loves the Slope Vegan Leather Bar and Counter Stools. She boasts “They’re so timeless and easy to integrate into a lot of design styles and great for adding warmth into a room”.
To add an elegant pop of color to your living space, our design team loves the Parlor chair in light pink. As an added bonus, the chair comes in a velvet material which automatically adds a luxurious touch. Additionally, they love the Box Frame Buffet. If you love to entertain, buffets with a lot of storage will be your best friend. You can store items like additional place settings and barware to grab quickly at a moment’s notice. This buffet also offers a generous amount of surface area on top to add your own personal touches.
There are tons of great options in this collection to maximize storage in small spaces. The Mid-century Bookshelf boasts five wide shelves to add personal items as well as baskets to and decorative boxes that can store little odds and ends you have around the house to reduce clutter. The Ansel Side Storage Bed offers tons of storage right in the frame with two drawers on either side.
