Style travels well, and judging from the stunning arrival of West Elm on this side of the pond, the American home fashion retailer is about to make serious waves in the UK decor market.

The essential elements have been transported safely with its distinctive high wall displays, blocked shelving, colour story chic and opulent ornaments still in tact after the journey East. Particularly impressive and more unexpected is the kitchen department where beautiful boxes build authority across cutlery, cuisine, and crockery which flow into attractive displays of herbs, spices and delicatessen delights. Customer service is special, as expected, from the home design hub to the cozy coffee bar, where the made-to-measure attention is sure to be a hit with the ecelectic mix of London’s home fashion admirers.
