West Elm Uses the Power of Social Design to Support Guatemalan Artisans

Proceeds From a Limited Edition Collection Will Benefit Pintando el Cambio Association

Click the image above to download the project look book.

West Elm, the global design and lifestyle company, will continue its mission of using design for good by introducing a limited edition collection titled the Atitlán Project. Featuring an array of artfully designed products, the Atitlán Project celebrates the vibrant culture and indigenous craft of Santa Catarina Palopó, a small community on the northeastern shore of Lake Atitlán. West Elm collaborators Roar + Rabbit combined their whimsical designs with Meso Goods’ bold graphics to create 14 one-of-a-kind swivel chairs and ottomans handcrafted by Guatemalan artisans. Each piece is an exquisite work of art for the home that will be available at auction via Paddle8.com from May 6-May 22. West Elm will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to Pintando el Cambio Association, the non-profit transforming communities through art and local histories.

“Our mission for introducing the Atitlán Project is to demonstrate how the power of design can ignite social change for our artisan partners throughout Guatemala,” said Alex Bellos, president of West Elm. “Together with Pintando el Cambio Association we can help create socioeconomic opportunities and deepen our commitment to the people behind our products and their communities.”

Pintando el Cambio Association has worked to create economic development in Santa Catarina Palopó by painting colorful patterns of cultural significance on the town’s homes since 2017. West Elm’s donations from the Atitlán Project will help Pintando el Cambio Association paint approximately 70 percent of the homes by the end of 2019, supporting the town’s 6,000 residents.The Atitlan Project has helped preserve my culture’s heritage by contemporizing our traditional craft and providing better possibilities for artisans,” said Diego Olivero, the Guatemalan designer and co-founder of Meso Goods who introduced West Elm to Pintando el Cambio Association’s mission back in 2017.

“This partnership speaks to the good that comes when companies like West Elm honor the stories behind their products and when grassroots organizations are open to exploring innovative approaches to development,” said Harris Whitbeck, project founder of Pintando el Cambio Association. “It is about great design coming together with a vibrant culture to bring about empowerment and a better understanding between communities.”

Mitzie Wong and Wendy Wurtzburger of Roar + Rabbit travelled to Santa Catarina Palopo with Olivero in 2017. “Santa Catarina Palopo captured our imaginations and the Pintando el Cambio Association’s mission captured our hearts. We were thrilled at the idea of celebrating Lake Atitlán with paintings and handcrafted designs on our iconic swivel chairs,” said Wurtzburger. Together they conceptualized the power that design can have to create meaningful change in the lives of Guatemalan artisans, and designed the 14 artfully woven, hand-embellished, and hand-embroidered furnishings that will be up for auction. “We couldn’t wait to partner with Diego to share ideas about how to translate the beautiful landscape, vibrant community and artisan technique into one-of-a-kind pieces that benefit the people making them,” said Wong.

Click the image above for more hi-res imagery of the collection.

Beginning May 6, Paddle8.com will host an online auction of the Atitlán Project handcrafted pieces with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Pintando el Cambio Association. Opening bids for the Atitlán Project ottomans will begin at $750 and bids for the Atitlán Project swivel chairs will begin at $1500. A selection of works will be on view at A/D/O in Greenpoint, Brooklyn on May 7 and May 8. West Elm invites the public to a panel presentation on May 7 at 7 p.m. titled, “Crafting a Brighter Future; The Power of Social Design” featuring Olivero, Wong, Whitbeck, Wurtzburger and Rebecca van Bergen, founder of artisan non-profit buildanest.org. Space is limited and attendees are encouraged to RSVP via https://atitlan.eventbrite.com to enjoy an evening of cocktails and a live DJ set by SteveTek. 

An affordable collection of the Atitlán Project featuring colorful patterns and motifs is available now at select West Elm stores and online at www.WestElm.com/TheAtitlanProject, and includes items such as tote bags, decorative pillows, rugs + more with prices ranging from $34 to $1899. These works will also be on view at West Elm Chelsea located at 112 W. 18th St, New York, NY 10011 from May 13-May 22 as an official NYC Design Week exhibition. Half of the retail price for items in this assortment will be donated to Pintando el Cambio Association.

West Elm Shares First Look at Queer Eye’s Kansas City Loft

Today with the launch of Queer Eye’s third season, West Elm is excited to reveal an in-depth look at Queer Eye’s Kansas City loft outfitted exclusively by West Elm. West Elm collaborated with Bobby Berk, design expert and one of the Fab Five on Queer Eye, to design the space used for filming Season 3, complete with a living room, kitchen, entertaining and makeover area – everything the Fab Five needed to pull off their life-changing transformations. West Elm pieces can be found making an impact in each episode and in every heroes’ home.

The loft was designed to be both beautiful and functional – serving not only as a TV set, but a home for the Fab Five cast and crew. This is where Berk’s design expertise came into play in making a TV-worthy statement. “I wanted to create a space that felt exciting, inspiring and fun, but also comfortable and welcoming,” said Berk. “The loft is a place where we can host our heroes and show them a good time.”

Pulling in warm tones and texture helped bring that welcoming vibe to life for Season 3. West Elm pieces that Berk chose to achieve the loft look include:

Rent the Runway and West Elm Partner to Revolutionize Home Design

Home design is now easy, sustainable, and accessible through the convenience of rental 

Rent the Runway, Inc. - the company that pioneered clothing rental as an essential utility in women’s everyday lives with the world’s first living closet, and West Elm, the global design and lifestyle company with a commitment to conscientious design and sustainability, announced today a partnership to make modern design accessible through the convenience of rental. Starting this summer, bundles of hand-selected West Elm textiles will be available for rental through Rent the Runway Subscriptions. Available at renttherunway.com/westelm, Rent the Runway Subscribers can select from 26 exclusive bundles of decorative pillows, throws, shams, quilts and coverlets ranging in style, print, texture and color to complete their living rooms and bedrooms. This is the first time West Elm has made products available for rent, and the first time Rent the Runway has expanded its offerings beyond apparel and accessories.

“This is a monumental moment for Rent the Runway and the sharing economy as a whole. We know that clothing is often a vehicle to help people feel confident and expressive, and this new partnership will unlock that feeling through home decor,” said Jennifer Hyman, Co-Founder and CEO of Rent the Runway. 

“We are making it easier than ever for customers to discover great design for their spaces,” said Alex Bellos, president of West Elm. “Each of our 26 curated home bundles encourage subscribers to translate their playful and bold style to decorating, and allow them to experience West Elm’s original, modern products from the comforts of home.”

The partnership provides subscribers the freedom to update their homes as often as they update their closet by offering:

  • Curation: Each bundle consists of a curated selection of new and seasonal West Elm textiles for the bedroom and/or living room. Bedroom bundles will include a tailored mix of a quilt, coverlet, throw or blanket, shams, and decorative pillows to perfectly dress a bed while living room bundles will include a stylish pairing of decorative pillows and/or a throw – making it easy to accessorize any space. 
  • Style: Rent the Runway subscribers will be able to rent the West Elm bundles as one of their rotating spots via RTR Unlimited or RTR Update. Each bundle is designed by West Elm to help customers express their personal style at home with the brand’s signature quality products including Belgian Linen Quilts, Chenille Rib Throws, and Off Center Abstract Pillow Covers.The hand-selected pieces feature textures like organic cotton, velvet, hand-spun silk, and Belgian flax linen in stone white, rosete, mineral blue, golden oak, carmine red and colorful embroidery. 
  • Convenience: This rental model provides RTR members with the flexibility to redesign their spaces when inspiration strikes and because members will be renting through their subscriptions, members can keep the bundles for any time period they’d like, from a couple of weeks to months and beyond. Rent the Runway also will offer subscribers the opportunity to purchase a bundle at a discounted rate.

The partnership underscores both companies’ mission to encourage sustainable living. RTR is creating a new model of dynamic ownership based on a new relationship with clothing that becomes a far superior consumption system for women, and the world, to sustainably live by. Through access and relief of ownership, RTR is powering women everyday to express themselves freely and without restriction. By doing this they can focus on owning the most important thing in their lives, themselves. West Elm is leading the industry through conscientious design that stands for self-expression, passionate creativity, and ethical standards. With 90 percent of its products designed in-house, West Elm has curated a global selection of local, handcrafted, sustainably sourced, and Fair Trade Certified products that look good and do good both at home and in the world. 

Rent the Runway COO Maureen Sullivan and West Elm President Alex Bellos will discuss the partnership for the first time publicly on stage at SXSW in Austin. The panel, “Living a Rented Life,” will take place on Saturday, March 9 at 12:30pm at The Four Seasons Ballroom AB (98 San Jacinto Blvd.) and will be moderated by Sheila Marikar, writer for The New York Times, New Yorker, Fortune, and more. To celebrate the launch, RTR and West Elm invite customers on March 9 - 10 to experience the RTR Living Closet at West Elm Austin located at 1011 W 5th St #100, Austin, TX 78703. To RSVP and see the full schedule of in-store events please visit herefor Saturday and herefor Sunday.

Rent the Runway’s Unlimited subscription costs $159 a month and allows for unlimited access to more than 600 designers of clothing, accessories and starting this summer, home decor from West Elm. The inventory ranges from tops, skirts, pants, outerwear, handbags, cocktail and evening styles, and home decor from designers like Rag & Bone, Reformation, Brock Collection, Victoria Beckham, Veronica Beard, Levi's and West Elm. Members can keep their items for as long as they want and swap them out whenever they are ready for something new.
