Kelly Wearstler's new collection is a whimsical celebration of SoCal – and we're lusting after every piece
In the aptly named Transcendence, the designer pays homage to her West Coastal roots through raw materials and elegant local craftsmanship
Kelly Wearstler has just released Transcendence – her new collection has its roots firmly set in her home in California. Constructed of eight series of furniture, six lighting lines, and several objects, Transcendence explores materiality through home decor pieces that are fearlessly fun-filled and indisputably chic.
Designed at Wearstler's West Hollywood studio and made by local craftspeople and artisans, every piece exudes a certain Cali-cool ambiance that fills any interior space with sun-kissed spirit – wherever we are.
While it's hard to select one highlight from the collection, we've completely fallen for the Oblique series (below) with its bold stripe pattern and organically sourced angle-cut hardwood that epitomizes Kelly's playful but nonetheless superiorly stylish collection.

Plus, since house party season is now upon us, we have every excuse we could ever need to indulge in the Triad series (below) that was originally designed as a cocktail table. Triad's unorthodox silhouette shapes are wrapped in durable brass sheets that are crafted and welded to wrap forms of inset marble with a hand-waxed patina – and we never want to leave our cocktail on anything else, ever again.
Like much of the collection, Triad stems from designs created for private clients that are an extension of Kelly's visual language – expanding familiar motifs with daring new concepts.
If you're looking to bring a bit of Kelly Wearstler into your interiors without opting for a large furnishing, then Transcendence makes it possible. Enter – the Rarity Large Bowl and Catchall, whose unique tones create a statement in all rooms, and sit effortlessly next to your margarita on the Triad table, of course.

In her discussion of Transcendence, Kelly shares how the pieces transcend 'the traditional form of each raw material.'
'I look to find the tension in each piece, balancing the familiar with the unexpected to create something that is both inviting and provides a new perspective.'
The Transcendence collection is now available on kellywearstler.com. We simply can't decide which piece to pick up first.
