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 bed linen 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 every item we sell—one that starts in Brooklyn and lives on with you.
