West Elm has a history of collaborating with a slew of diverse designers to create home goods, often with spectacular results. This Fall, the retailer tapped two distinctly different jewelry designers to create lighting that is beautiful enough to wear. Fans of Melissa Joy Manning's and Andrea Pico's jewelry will now be able to buy some bling — for their houses!
Much like the jewelry collections she is known for, Melissa Jo Manning's lighting pieces are earthy and natural. The satin-brass-finished iron-link pendants ($499 each) transcend trends and enhance their environment, rather than overwhelm. They also have a celebratory vibe, which is great if you are considering a little redecorating before the holidays!
An industrial designer by training, Andrea Panico of Pico Designs stayed true to her architectural roots when designing the two pieces in her collection for West Elm. Inspired by stained-glass, floor-to-ceiling windows in Mexico, Andrea's Pico Capuchinas Table Lamp ($199) and Round Chandelier ($499) are modern but timeless. "I believe that no matter how small, all the choices we make are design decisions," says Andrea. We couldn't agree more.
