Home decor collaborations are a dime a dozen, but we've never seen one quite like this. West Elm has announced a partnership with clothing brand Eileen Fisher for a limited-edition collection that's all about upcycling and sustainability. Previously owned Eileen Fisher denim — sourced from the company's Renew program — has been reworked into unique patterns for a series of pillow covers and even a lounge chair.

"With these beautiful designs, we are extending each garment's life cycle and drastically reducing the waste that we put out into the world," Eileen Fisher, founder and co-CEO of her eponymous brand, said in a statement.

Both furniture and fashion waste are vast problems in terms of ecological impact. More than 9 million tons of furniture waste is dumped into landfills each year, while fashion is responsible for 10% of humanity's carbon emissions. With partnerships like these that promote reusability, attention is driven to finding sustainable solutions for both industries.
