What Is Elements?

Featuring unique designs from across the globe, Living Spaces’ Elements is a collection of fascinating treasures with stories to tell.

Why Choose Elements?

A collection of intriguing finds made in special places, Elements is like no other line of furniture.

Unique pieces 

Elements pieces are made in small batches, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. While new Elements designs and pieces are constantly coming in from all over the world, they are unique to themselves and aren’t replaced.

Exotic origins

Made in places all over the world – think India, Indonesia and more – each Elements piece delivers artisanal craftsmanship with exotic origins – and its own rich history and unique perspective. While a standard collection of furniture pieces available in a traditional store may feel contemporary and new, because of their extraordinary origins and craftsmanship, Elements pieces often deliver a rare, even vintage, charm that can’t be replicated.

Constantly evolving

Because they are offered in limited quantities, what you see available in the Elements collection today may be gone tomorrow – forever. While this can be frustrating – there is nothing worse than missing out on a piece you have your heart set on! – it is also what makes Elements incredibly exciting. Because they come in small batches (sometimes, an Elements piece is the only one of its kind!), and because you won’t find Elements pieces anywhere else, to bring home a piece from the Elements collection is to bring home a design rich in character that is sure to excite conversation – and refine your space with a unique, one-of-a-kind charm.

What Types of Furniture Are Elements Pieces?

Elements pieces come in many forms, but some of the most common types of Elements pieces you’ll find include:

Keep checking the Elements collection for new arrivals; you never know what rare bookcase or vintage loveseat you will find next!

What Does Made by Hand Mean?

Many pieces at Living Spaces, both in and outside of the Elements collection, are made by hand. This means that the product did not go through the typical manufacturing process but instead was made by a furniture artisan. The difference is often visible in handcrafted pieces; whether it's the detailed molding, delicate inlays or impeccable tufting, the time, energy and care required for the final result is something that can only be attributed to the hand of a skilled artisan.

What Does One-of-a-Kind Mean?

Within and outside of the Elements collection, one-of-a-kind pieces are made in small batches. These batches don't get restocked or continued; once the design is made, production is finished. Keep an eye out for one-of-a-kind pieces to know that you're getting something that won't be found anywhere else.

Where Can I Find an Elements Piece?

What Inspires Elements?

Elements are sourced from all over the world and are crafted by skilled artisans using generations-old techniques, and they often incorporate interesting materials, finishes and details.
Our teams of Designers are always inspired by their travels and the beautiful architecture and culture of global cities.
Guests will find carving details inspired by buildings in India from the 15th - 18th century or the beautiful arch windows of the Louvre in Paris to the reclaimed canoes of the Mekong River.
