Copper Measuring Spoons West Elm Market

After a seriously indulgent and frivolous holiday it seems everyone has hunkered down into nesting mode. My brain for one has spiralled sharply away from thinking about must-have cut glass punchbowls and the perfect candle-sconce to deck our halls with – and towards practical and beautiful utilitarian ‘fresh start’ tools for the home.

My travelling feet have been itching to get on over to my favourite homestore West Elm’s new venture West Elm Market in New York [not so frugal on that front then].

Opening a ‘local’ ‘neighborhood’ style General Store in Brooklyn late last year – the rustic looking store is described as a “total home tool kit” for the kitchen, garden, home repair and personal care. The shop stocks beautiful and simple pots and pans, wire baskets and bins, old fashioned candles, cleaning product, an artisan pantry of foodstuffs and even appliances.

What I like the sound of the most is that what ever can be – is sourced in Brooklyn specifically, making it a chain store with a local feel. There is also a cafe (run in collaboration with Philadelphia-based La Colombe) and a kitchen space where customers can watch product demonstrations and take classes in things like knife skills and chicken frying.
