West Elm's simple white ceramic vases, chunky wood coffee tables, and low-slung wood-and-cushion chairs have inspired comparisons to Jonathan Adler, Christian Liaigre, and Armani Casa. But its prices—all of the above are yours for less than $500—have made this Williams-Sonoma offshoot the cult catalogue of the moment.
