VM Architecture and Design designed the headquarters of furniture provider West Elm (a Williams-Sonoma, Inc. company), located in New York City, New York. VMAD worked with west elm to create a timeless and sophisticated space – more like an art gallery than a trendy office environment. VMAD wanted to develop an environment that celebrates and showcases the brand’s design aesthetic, one that incorporates custom artistic elements created by west elm’s world design partners and local Brooklyn artists. The space also needed to function as a showroom for the new west elm WORKSPACE furniture line. The new west elm headquarters is a beautiful representation of a growing brand, their design partner’s creativity and the success of their brand values.
