“We are big fans of the distinctive art and design scene in Seattle,” said Jim Brett, president of West Elm. “We’ve been waiting for the perfect location for our first store in the city. The growing South Lake Union neighborhood is the ideal spot.”
Like other West Elm stores, the Seattle location is designed using green materials and includes low-energy lighting, low-VOC paints and reclaimed hardwood floors. The store will house or have access to the brand’s complete assortment, making it possible for shoppers to bring home new looks immediately or arrange for quick-turnaround delivery. This is the first store to feature a GSky Green Wall.
