West Elm Is Helping Local Makers To Go Mainstream
The LOCAL showcase is now accepting submissions.
Have you ever taken a look at West Elm LOCAL? Since launching the collection back in 2013, the brand has highlighted over 800 rising makers and artisans by selling their products through their stores. Just last year alone, West Elm on-boarded over 160 local makers and 1,600 new products into multiple categories across the assortment including some of our favorites like Eric Trine, Dusen Dusen, and Quiet Town Home. Well now, West Elm is opening up their collection to new artisans looking to make it big.
The retailer is currently accepting submissions for its Los Angeles LOCAL Showcase. The event invites local makers and designers to share their stories and present their product to be considered for the store’s collection and inclusion in future pop-up events. This showcase specifically focuses on highlighting cool furniture designers in the L.A. area. With an open submissions period until May 28, make sure to let any cool creatives know about this amazing opportunity ASAP.
