West Elm is the contemporary furniture and home accessories brand owned by Williams-Sonoma Inc. Founded in Brooklyn, New York in 2002, the company focuses on forward-thinking design that unites value, quality and responsible manufacturing. The retailer’s design team works closely with local and international makers, artists and designers to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that elevate everyday living.

While the brand’s sleek modern furniture and rugs often carry higher price tags than those found at discount home stores, savvy shoppers can score deals on high-quality, designer products by knowing when to shop West Elm’s sales. The retailer’s seasonal sales, long weekend promotions and Black Friday sales are some of the best times to find discounts on beds, furniture, rugs and more.

The brand also offers a free Design Crew service, which allows customers to schedule virtual or in-store appointments with a professional designer to get feedback on their home and office designs. Design Crew can provide product recommendations, fabric and color options, mood boards, estimates and more.

Other ways to save on West Elm products include taking advantage of the store’s ship-to-store option. Available for select items, the option eliminates shipping fees and delivery charges and may be ideal if you live in an area with high package theft rates or if you are purchasing breakable items. The online shopping platform lets you choose to ship to your nearest West Elm store or another address within the same state as your billing address.
