Williams-Sonoma, Inc., parent company of the Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Williams-Sonoma Home brands, has created a resource for designers with information about discounts, events, new product lines, and their own creative process, all in one place.
The site offers links to the best features on the brand sites, like Pottery Barn's Benjamin Moore Experience Colors, or WS Home's Swatch Book. You can use this site to apply to the very decent trade program, which offers discounts to designers based on the level of product purchased in a 12-month period. But the best features, in our opinion, are the Designer Blog pieces with telling interviews of their product designers and stylists.
