Art for Good: West Elm + Rauschenberg Collection

by | Apr 28, 2017 | Culture, Entertainment

This week, West Elm debuted its collaboration with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation

The stunning home collection features a variety of home furnishing and decorative accessories with the late American artist’s post-war artwork. 

On everything from dinnerware to furniture, Rauschenberg’s artwork finds a new way to express itself on the pieces.

“We are honored to translate [Rauschenberg’s] incredible work to a line of artful furnishings and decorative accessories perfect for today’s modern homes,” said West Elm creative director Johanna Uurasjarvi.

Even better than the beautiful pieces is the feel-good that comes along with a purchase. Ten percent of the purchase price of each item will support the Rauschenberg Foundation’s grants in art, social justice, climate change, and education.

“Partnering with West Elm was a natural fit for us given their strong commitment to sustainable, artisanal production and their belief that good design can drive meaningful change,” said Sharon Ullman, acting executive director of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation

The collection is already available online and in select West Elm stores beginning May 12.
