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.
Our handcrafted products are sourced from a network of 35+ artisan groups in 15 countries, employing nearly 5,000 makers.
In 2014, west elm became the first-ever home retailer to offer Fair Trade Certified™ products.
Organic fibers aren’t treated with pesticides, insecticides or herbicides, and conserve more natural resources like water.
We believe in making sustainable products, being mindful of our impact on every level.
