They’ve Done It Again: New Organic West Elm Bedding & Bath Linens


It’s about time things started getting back to “normal” around here, whatever that is, so without further adieu, here’s a post a wrote weeks ago that’s just been itching for me to hit publish.

I’m not a one retailer kind of gal. I promise I’m not. I like to shop around at a variety of stores — both online and in the real world — to find the best of the best, and the greenest of the green. But when West Elm keeps making beautiful, eco-friendly products, I can’t help but return again and again. Seriously, if anyone feels like getting me a post-holiday gift, just shoot me a sizable gift card to West Elm and I guarantee you’ll make me happy. Their new eco-friendly offerings are so gorgeous that I couldn’t pick just one to feature.

The two new bedding collections, Fossil and Bloom, are so deliciously graphic that I can’t decide which I like best.  I’ve never really paid much attention to color trends and forecasts, preferring instead to choose what I love rather than what’s hot. But if the color forecasters saw the Bloom duvet cover, I’m pretty sure this beautiful gold tone would be on the list of coming trends. And since I have officially decided that gray is my favorite color (call me crazy if you wish), I want to bring home the Fossil bedding. Like now.


And after my husband washed our pristine white fabric shower curtain and turned it…well…not so white…I was reminded of how neglected that poor little room has become. I can’t think of a better way to remedy that than with some graphic, two-tone towels and a matching organic rug. The hexagons and diamonds are right up my geometric-shape-loving alley, so I’m starting a wish list.

West Elm, you’re going to have to stop tempting me like this…

Why It’s Green:

  • Bedding and bath linens made of organic cotton
  • Bedding is OEKO Tex certified

Price: $8-119

    Honestly, I LOVE West Elm. I have their futon lounger and it’s fab. Their stuff is gorgeous. BUT it feels horrible. If I am going to spend such big bucks, I want sheets & duvets that are a little more soft than 250 thread count! Uugghh.

    I love how bold the patterns are. I am going to head over to their online store right now. Thanks for the heads up.

    My best, Lynn

    @Elita I can’t disagree with you. As much as I drool over West Elm’s bedding, I’ve never actually used any of it, and if I’m going to spend this kind of money, I’d definitely want it to feel at least soft, if not luxurious. I’m waiting for a sale so I can purchase it myself 🙂

    Then I’ll be able to let my readers know for myself what the quality is like.

    I actually purchased a duvet from them once and returned it. It was too big (one size for full & Queen and was huge on my full-sized comforter) and felt scratchy. I was really disappointed because I had loved everything else I’d ever purchased from them. You can find good deals on their stuff on eBay.
