West Elm’s new Pinecrest location was designed to honor Cleveland’s rich manufacturing history. The ornamental steel screen behind the register speaks to the city’s heritage as one of America’s most prominent steel and ironmaking hubs. A backing made of maple wood - one of the area’s native trees - deepens the regional connection. The cash wrap features a sculptural assemblage comprised of reclaimed slate triangles cut from blackboards that once hung on the walls of Cleveland schools.
