If I die an untimely death, bury me at a West Elm. No, seriously. I'd love to spend an eternity surrounded by white boucle benches or resting peacefully on a basketweave couch cushion, ideally under an epitaph that reads: 'Here lies Brigid Kennedy. Don't worry, she is happy.'

And before you judge me for this, allow me to explain. You see, West Elm is one of the best home decor brands around. Its products have an everyday elegance that straddles both the high-level interiors world and the mass market. There's a quality threshold you'd expect of couture designers at a middle-of-the-road price point, plus the brand is constantly reinventing its catalog, showcasing new and unique products that play off some of the biggest and most showstopping trends.

'When shopping for my home, I find myself at West Elm time and time again,' said Livingetc editor Pip Rich, who has a dining table and set of six chairs from the brand. 'Its pieces are simultaneously covetable and accessible, allowing me to show off my love of interior design at a realistic cost and lead time.'

Other designers agree. 'West Elm [does] really beautiful textured brass sculptures in a square shape that I think could work well as wall art for a luxe, dark room,' said Enass Mahmoud of Studio Enass. 'It's a really good place for unexpected finishing touches like that.'

Thankfully, you don't have to just take my, Pip's or Enass' word for it — using the 15-item edit I've curated below, you yourself can get a taste of West Elm's enduring charm. When your credit card comes out, though, don't say I didn't warn you!
