West Elm, the global design and lifestyle company, has partnered with StreetEasy, New York City's leading real estate marketplace, to find the perfect home for the holidays. For the month of October, West Elm will invite customers to its first-ever holiday house, which brings its original, modern approach to entertaining, decorating and gifting to life through enriched experiences. The West Elm Holiday House with StreetEasy transforms a boutique condominium at the new Eighty East Tenth complex into the ultimate holiday sourcebook that is designed to help customers elevate their everyday when celebrating the holidays at home. Design Crew experts helped to get the 3,300 sq. ft., four bedroom, four bath condo holiday-ready by using West Elm’s new collection of furniture, decor and gifts. This is the first time the Brooklyn-based lifestyle brand will offer inspiration, tutorials and seasonal activations outside of its 100+ global retail stores.

“We designed this experience to go beyond the tools and inspiration we offer customers everyday through our catalogs, website, stores and social channels,” said Andres (Dru) Ortega, West Elm director of public relations and partnerships. “Together with our in-house team of experts and industry partners, we have created a living environment where digital content inspiration comes to life in the real world for our customers. It’s one more way for us to help customers confidently celebrate the holidays at home.”  

Brand partners such as Sherwin-Williams, Leesa, Sonos, and Material Kitchen have come together under one roof to host a series of events, new product launches and programming at the West Elm Holiday House presented by StreetEasy, including:

  • A three-part digital series will bring viewers along for the journey as StreetEasy helps West Elm navigate New York’s real estate market in search of the perfect home for the West Elm Holiday House. Viewers can tune in this month to Instagram.com/StreetEasy to watch each episode.
  • Sherwin-Williams, the exclusive paint sponsor, celebrates wellness at home, cloaking the master bedroom in the Sherwin-Williams 2020 Color of the Year, Naval SW 6244, and creating a meditation space within the room. Guests are invited to experience the calming nature of the Color of the Year and are encouraged to take a moment to ground themselves in the meditation space. Beyond the master suite, the entire home will be painted in a palette of Sherwin-Williams hues that demonstrate how color is connected to mental, physical and emotional well-being. In addition, Sherwin-Williams is hosting a Facebook Live panel on October 15 with Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, a representative from West Elm, and a surprise guest to speak about incorporating wellness through color and design in the home.
  • Leesa Sleep will teach customers how to get the perfect night's sleep with the debut of its third mattress, the Leesa Legend. The Leesa Legend is a sustainable mattress, each using up to 73 recycled water bottles and is the first compressed dual hybrid pocket spring mattress that ships to a door in a box. The West Elm Holiday House will be the first place customers can try all three Leesa mattresses.
  • Sonos joins the West Elm Holiday House presented by StreetEasy with a showcase of its all new portable, battery-powered Sonos Move. Stream tracks, podcasts, radio stations, and more over WiFi when at home celebrating, or from Bluetooth when on the road, bringing the Sonos experience wherever customers call home during the holidays.
  • Material brings Chef Behzad Jamshidi of Moosh to teach customers how to create crave-worthy appetizers. After the food is prepped, guests will sit and enjoy the meal together while discussing tips and tricks for bringing new traditions to the holidays. Click here to RSVP.
