Designed by students partaking in the Pratt Design Incubator
at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute
, this unique collaboration
consists of a desk
, file cabinet
, LED table lamp
, and coming soon, a wall accessory set
with picture set, pencil holder, and corkboard. Each elegant, unfussy piece is constructed from eco-friendly materials such as Forest Stewardship Council-certified eucalyptus wood, water-based stains, nontoxic glues, and recyclable powder-coated steel.
I've been loving West Elm's recent design collaborations — specifically some sustainable tag-team efforts with David Stark
— and the Pratt Home Office Collection is no exception ... it's beautiful, thoughtfully designed stuff. Like what you see? Head on over to West Elm where the entire collection
is on sale now from $99 through $254.
