As one of your enthusiastic customers, I salute and support this initiative. Bullying leaves indelible scars, and LGBT youth are bullied more than most. By creating safe places to provide support you are helping all youth, whatever their orientation. Thank you. Patrick J Hamilton March 24, 2014 This is how change happens. So grateful to the entire West Elm family for taking the next steps. This letter brought tears to my eyes. BRANDON N BLEVINS March 24, 2014 Beautiful. Just beautiful. James Billard March 24, 2014 So, do homeless LGBT really come into West Elm seeking support? Really? John Mahoney March 31, 2014 Home is indeed so much more than home furnishings– kudos to West Elm and Jim Brett for taking a stand for safety in the larger community. I’m looking forward to watching the company evolve further in this direction. Linda Morris April 20, 2014 Absolutely one of the best curated and best produced home catalogs out there.
