West Elm is coming to Durham!
West Elm is coming! West Elm is coming!
West Elm is opening a new store in Durham, NC, this week over in the Streets at South Point. I couldn’t be more beyond excited!! (Well, except that I started a new job today. For those deets, you can follow me on Twitter at @gwynnemurphy.) Any how, perusing the West Elm catalog is one of my favorite pastimes. And they are hosting a pre-opening event the day before. I really hope that I get to see the not-so-infamous Morocco bed that I lusted over for months in person.
They were nice enough to send me an invitation to a pre-opening event at the Durham store on Wednesday, August 23rd from 6:30-8:30pm.
Check it out. It’s made out of wood (yes! actual wood). You have to RSVP through Eventbrite here.

(I was hoping to find my initial tweet of pure excitement but it has faded away as all tweets have a habit of doing.)
According to the invite, a portion of the night’s proceeds will benefit SEEDS, a nonprofit educational community garden dedicated to promoting sustainable agriculture and respect for the environment through gardening and growing food.
I was hoping you could join me, but it looks like the pre-opening event is already sold out. Now, please don’t shy away from the opening just because you cannot make the pre-oppening event. West Elm has so much comfortable style to offer your home. Don’t be a stranger!
Follow me on Twitter (@gwynnemurphy) and Instagram (gwynnemurphy) for some pictures and tweets from the West Elm Durham event. Hope to see you there!
