West Elm and REI have announced a collaborative collection of home products for outdoor living under the catchphrase "at home, outside." And it totally makes sense, given REI's outdoor expertise and West Elm's chic furnishings.

As coronavirus lockdown orders are slowly being lifted and as summer approaches, people are ready to get outside — safely, of course — so this collaboration couldn't have come at a better time.

"Working with West Elm introduces new creative territory to consider, and we hope this inspires more people to join us outside, even if it's just day camping in their backyard," Paul Calandrella, REI general merchandising manager for camp products, said in a statement.
