West Elm's New Collection: Cultured Sophistication

 South African designer John Vogel utilizes colors, textures and shapes to blend natural and traditional techniques [like weaving] in West Elm's new collection, giving it a sophisticated worldly flair.  In addition to John Vogel's contribution to the new season's lineup, there are coordinating vases, pillows, linens and benches that can easily enhance any space as interesting ethnic accents.

I for one can't wait to see these pieces in person and I'm seriously thinking about a set of these in black for our new dinning room.
