Industry West

Artisan-crafted industrial furniture and decor with pops of color and personality

Industry West prides itself on offering “bold design for modern living, accessible luxury, and beautiful, functional pieces capable of becoming timeless.” We admire this mission and believe they’re delivering on it. Founded in 2011, this independently-owned online retailer curates high-style, artisan-crafted furniture and decor, including chairs, stools, tables, sofas, and lighting for your living space, bedroom, workspace, patio, and backyard. Beyond their passion for style and quality, their unmatched warranty is a key differentiator.

The Hipper and More Youthful Sibling of Crate & Barrel
CB2 Best selling furniture and accessories
CB2 Best Sellers

CB2 offers smartly priced modern furnishings—home furniture and accessories that are clever and in the moment, creative and fun, while being spare and simple. Founded in 2000, this online and brick-and-mortar retailer helps you decorate any room of your home and outdoor space with design that aspires to be creative and fun.

They position themselves to serve urbanites who may have filled their apartment with Ikea furniture but now desire the high-style furnishings of a Crate & Barrel (which happens to be the parent company of CB2 — hence the name!).

West Elm

High-style at a mid-range budget, contemporary with some warmth and whimsy

West Elm offers high-style at a mid-range budget. Warm, soft-edged, mid-century modern and eclectic designs are common motifs. A juxtaposition of materials is another design theme–natural fabrics together with wood and metals—brass, gold, chrome, and on. Adding everchanging twists to West Elm’s design collections is their collaborates with well-known artists and tastemakers. Their Lenny Kravitz collection has been our favorite so far.
