West ElmWest Elm is an American furniture retail chain, which just opened their first store in central London. They are large and mainstream, but also on-trend and affordable chain. The store is strategically situated in a key location, where the main furniture stores are in London. This heats up the competition with local chains Heal’s and Habitat. It is the best scenario from consumer’s point of view.

The ranges are easy to the eye, not too edgy or stylish but instead very comfortable and homey. They cover all main trends of the moment that comes to mind starting from fluffy textiles and fur accessories to untreated wood.
