The idea for Williams Sonoma was born on a trip to Paris, where founder Chuck Williams became enchanted by the top-quality French cookware available to local chefs. Seeking to bring cast iron French ovens and copper saucepans to the United States, Williams opened up his first shop in Sonoma, California in 1956.
Today, Williams Sonoma has become a leader in fine cookware, bakeware and kitchen tools, as well as home goods and furniture. The brand is the namesake of the Williams-Sonoma Inc. family of stores, which includes Williams Sonoma Home, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, PBteen, West Elm, Mark and Graham and Rejuvenation.
Williams Sonoma offers three shipping options:
