West Elm Emmerson Collection poor quality
West Elm Emmerson Collection poor quality
I have been an admirer of West Elm, and thought they were were known for lifelong quality pieces. Not the case. We ordered the Emmerson reclaimed table, bench, coffee table, and two leather couches. The Emmerson pieces LOOK extremely hardy, and indestructible. They...

Broken couch

West Elm - Broken couch
West Elm - Broken couch
We bought a Henry chaise sleeper sofa. It was a nightmare actually getting it. First delivered the wrong couch, then delivered half of the sofa telling us the other half was no longer available. After finally getting the couch, the sleeper part broke after having it less than 4 years. It is beyond fixable as things that were welded on are completely off, We now have a $2400 pile of junk sitting in our family room. And of course there is nothing they can do about it. This company should not be in existence as their products are so cheaply made, yet incredibly expensive.

Ordered couch that apparently does not exist

Original review updated by user Dec 19, 2021
This couch was in stock and I ordered in late September. It was supposed to arrive end of October, it was apparently ready to ship and I just had to wait for the delivery team to call me. That never happened. After a million follow-ups, they emailed me to let me know my couch was lost. They sent me another one that was supposed to arrive late November it did not. Each time I call they say its in fulfillment. I am not sure how this company has not gone under. They are selling products that do not exist. This is illegal and its apparent from the thousand+ reviews that they are essentially running a scam operation. I will be filing a complaint with the better business bureau.

User's recommendation: Do not buy a single item from west elm that you cannot pick up in store.

After the experience I had buying Christmas stockings through West Elm, I will never shop at West Elm again, and I will actively discourage others from ordering from West Elm as well. I ordered 5 stockings on 11/18/21. I received 1 on 11/23. After a 20 minute call with...

Shocking Deliver of Used Furniture

I ordered a sofa with Chaise - white leather, ~$6k. It was delivered with missing legs, cuts in the leather, a pair of gloves in the box, box was beat up - it was clearly used. Marks all over the leather. And the proof it was used! The deliver and sales slip for the previous buyer was still in the box! I was totally shocked that a company like west elm would try to deliver to me USED FURNITURE and try to deceive me that it was new. very very shocking - BUYER BEWARE - anything for the almighty dollar i guess. I requested a refund, so the matter will be resolved is my expectation, but I am still shocked this company would stoop so low. unbelievable. Let me guess....its due to covid

Order cancelled without warning

Update by user Jan 15, 2022

I've ordered another sofa, same model, different fabric. West Elm offered a 15% discount.

The estimated delivery window was in January 2022, but it's now March. It's stayed on March for some time now, so I'm hopeful it'll arrive by spring.

Original review posted by user Nov 17, 2021
After placing an order for the Henry Deluxe Sleeper Sofa in July 2021, and after months of the delivery time frame being pushed back, I just happened to check my order online on 11/16/21 and saw that it was CANCELLED. Cancelled with no warning, no communication at all. No one could have called me to say that supply chain issues are the problem, so how about this other sleeper instead? How about the Henry but in this other fabric??? I am livid. It took MONTHS of research to find the perfect sleeper, and we were told it would be in well before the November holiday. And then MONTHS after the order it only ends up being cancelled. I'm a pretty loyal West Elm customer, but no more.

User's recommendation: Don't purchase furniture that isn't already in stock.

Piling of Sofa - less than two weeks old

Original review updated by user Oct 19, 2021
Our sofa with performance twill was delivered 12 days ago and almost immediately started piling. We barely sit on it. It looks terrible. I called to complain and the customer service rep insisted that this was normal and would go away over time. Right. When sweater last start piling, its usually a sign that they should be given away. From the online reviews, its clear that this is not normal, but a product defect that has affected many couches. Ive ordered couches from room and board, pottery barn, even world market, and never had this issue.

User's recommendation: Avoid west elm sofas.

Non-delivery, delays no communication bad service

Ordered over $5,000.00 in furniture in July. AS of Mid October deliver months late. No explantion. Multiple calls to correct, nearly impossible to talk to person who can help you. When you do talk to someone they put you on hold for 20-30 minutes, then come back and say they can't get the information they need and will make notes. It will be followed up and and they will contact you. Guess what no follow up or contact. They charged me months ago and won't deliver on the goods sold and won't help getting answers. Asked for a full refund, now getting a run around. Going to file an FTC complaint and pursue refund. By far the worst company ever to deal with. Avoid.

User's recommendation: Avoid.

Horrible customer service

Trying to resolve a duplication of an order. Items had not been shipped but my paypal account was charged, more than 2.5 times what I had ordered. After almost an hour, and dealing with rude, adversarial, condescending associate AND supervisor, I was chastised and hung up on. I'm 60 years old and have NEVER been so poorly treated by a company in my life.Stay cleary cler of this company Sta

User's recommendation: stay clear of this company.
