Facilitating wellness: West Elm’s new office furniture

West Elm introduced the West Elm Workspace with over 75 pieces of furniture for the modern office.  Designed to make the office feel less “office-like,” West Elm Workspace’s offerings were created in collaboration with designer and manufacturer of office furniture, Inscape. The pieces include private offices; tables; benching systems; task, guest, occasional and lounge seating; storage; and accessories, in addition to sit-stand options and ergonomic solutions that facilitate wellness in the work environment.

A line of customized conference tables made in a variety of finishes by Brooklyn-based, furniture designer Mark Jupiter are a highlight; while fabrics by Designtex offer layered patterns favoring a mix of natural materials and texture.

Designed by West Elm and produced and distributed in North America by Inscape and Designtex, the pieces are split into four collections - Mid-century, Modern, Industrial and Contemporary.
