west elm’s turn for the exotic

Through their new Found Shop, West Elm is taking a departure from their usual contemporary designs to bring more exotic items to the masses.  Pieces include Moroccan hand loomed rugs and tables carved out of mango wood in India.  Adding a few of these pieces would, no doubt, help transport a room to far away places.

Also involved with  this endeavor is non-profit group Aid to Artisans, who works with groups around the globe to help foster traditional work and improve the livelihoods of artisans.
