Behind the Scenes: Tour Our Makers Studio

Did you know that over 90% of our products are dreamed up and brought to life by our in–house design team right here in Brooklyn? Want to see where the magic happens?

In this installment of "west elm On Location," our Finish Design Master John "J.D." Draughn takes you on a tour of our Makers Studio in Industry City, Brooklyn.

We opened our Makers Studio in April 2015. Just a quick cab ride from our Dumbo headquarters, it's housed in the same building as our photo studio and serves as a creative hub for our designers across all product categories—from ceramics and lighting to furniture and rugs. They use the studio to weave textiles, craft ceramics, build prototypes, sketch + paint and more.
