I finally got over to the new West Elm in Santa Monica
the other day.
The showroom is huge and most everything you have seen in the catalog is on the floor. The store was packed with people and lots of sales people on the floor to help.
I especially liked the "belly" lamps and the saffron "wavy" lamps, which look incredibly identical to lamps from another designer (hint, hint). By the way they come in white as well.
These candleholders and bamboo frames make perfect gifts and the upholstered bed is nice, but I wish it came in different textile colors.
I really liked the T chair in saffron, and the round dining table which is great for a small space kitchen area.
Check out West Elm when your in the neighborhood, I am sure you will walk out with something, I sure did!
