West (now south) Elm & co.

There is now a stellar range of storage baskets and photo frames in Sydney, care of the Williams Sonoma/Pottery Barn/West Elm migration. From well designed, inexpensive sofas to the perfect jars for jam season, this is going to shakes things up, retail-wise. For smaller items, the prices are only a smidgeon more than the US. And the range is pretty good, considering we’re one fifteenth the size, population wise. Oh, and the staff were both plentiful and super helpful. My only gripe: the store configurations – if only they’d taken over a deco warehouse down Alexandria way! HF.

Inigo can be seen trying to match his neon pram to the grey Westelm sofa, above – good job pikelet!

All photos from Westelm.
