WHO WE ARE
west elm was born in Brooklyn, New York in 2002. A branch of Williams-Sonoma, Inc, we're focused on the intersection of modern design, affordability and community. Everything we sell—from sofas and tables to bedding and vases—is made with one goal in mind: to help our customers express their personal style at home and in the world.
We care about impact too. By designing over 90% of our products in-house, our design team has steadily increased our selection of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced and Fair Trade Certified™ products. There's a story behind everything we sell—one that starts in Brooklyn and lives on with you.
