Our Story

Born in Brooklyn. At home in the world.™

Who We Are

west elm was born in Brooklyn 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.

Where We're Located

Community matters. We're invested in the areas we serve and committed to making a difference, both locally and globally. This means carrying products from local makers, empowering store managers to tailor their own inventory and improving the lives of the handcrafted artisans we work with.
