WEST ELM OPENS A HUGE NEW STORE ON NYC'S UPPER WEST SIDE

photos from David Stark
For the grand opening event of NYC's newest West Elm store, David Stark was asked to get creative with recycling, and created a truly inspired landscape out of cardboard, old West Elm catalogs and other reusable materials. Recession be damned, West Elm forges onward.
Visit the emporium when you are on the Upper West, at 1870 Broadway (at 62nd Street):


These cardboard cacti will never need water.


The 3-ball topiary of shredded catalogs will live forever.

Some of my new favorites from West Elm:


Nesting Hexagon Tables in Tumeric


The Faceted Glass Pendant Lamp

Hm, nice lamp. Btw. If you will read this, I noticed very nice design poster site www.plakatt.cz

Is based in Prague, but you can order it also from abroad.
