Breton Village Shopping

Located at 1958 Breton Rd. SE in the Breton Village shopping area, West Elm is in good company. Neighboring the 10,000 sq. ft. home décor and furniture store you can find other retailers such as Anthropologie, lululemon, Ann Taylor LOFT, Fitzgeralds, JB and Me, and Houlihan’s. This little shopping district has so much to offer, which is located nearby East Grand Rapids.


Supporting Local Artists and Designers

West Elm also plans to feature local collections from Michigan based artist and designers. West Elm likes to think of their stores as “community hubs—places run by individual shopkeepers who love where they live” This vision is supported by hosting local events, workshops, and being good neighbors by connecting customers with resources beyond their local stores (think mom-and-pop shops to non profits.” (westelm.com). It’s not every day you find a corporation that values supporting their local community, coexisting and embracing each others company to support one another.  Big fans of the handmade movement West Elm stores have hosted local Etsy pop up shops.


Mid Century Modern Inspired Design

West Elm comes from the William Sonoma, Inc. which consists of stores such as Pottery Barn, William Sonoma, PBteen, Rejuvenation, Mark and Graham.  West Elm style is inspired by Mid Century modern design offering furniture, home décor, bedding, etc.
