I go back and forth over which is the best little sister designer home goods store out there, CB2 or West Elm. Both have their merits for sure. But with the opening of The Market recently, I’d have to give the edge to West Elm. The products in The Market hit the nail on the groovy head with general store type basics you would expect to find at a more boutique style outlet. Oh, and did I mention everything in The Market comes with free shipping? Here are a few of my favorites from each of the four categories Kitchen — other than the SMEG refrigerator that comes in 10 colors — Care & Repair, Garden and Personal Care:
Plus I like West Elm’s recent focus on collaborations with Etsy artists & Kinfolk Magazine. They just seem to reaching beyond the standard formula for a big retailer. I’m anxious to see how consumers react and what the future holds. . .
