Home furnishing fiends have plenty to celebrate this summer. Scottsdale Quarter, near Kierland Commons, just opened two of our favorite furnishings stores: West Elm and Williams-Sonoma Home, both Valley firsts.
The West Elm aesthetic is undeniably modern with global and natural inspirations, and the 15,000-sq.-ft. shop showcases the brand’s contemporary couches, clean-lined desks, cushy throw pillows and much more. A few feet away, Williams-Sonoma Home is bursting with casual elegance in the form of refined furniture and classy accessories. Plus, the store boasts a custom upholstery program that includes more than 77 furniture frames and 100 different fabrics. www.westelm.com; www.wshome.com.
