West Elm Showroom Grand Opening

Anderson Interiors in Verona will open the first Pittsburgh location of West Elm Workspace, a showroom of all furnishings related to the office, on Thursday at 1133 Penn Ave., Downtown.

The 2,800-square-foot showroom is meant to “redefine the way you work” by providing a comfortable, stylish atmosphere with workers’ wellness in mind. It is furnished completely with products from the West Elm Workspace line, which has more than 100 designs, and produced with Inscape, a workplace manufacturing company of West Elm office furnishings based out of Falconer, N.Y.

“This collection is made for a new generation of workers who want dedicated spaces for quiet concentration, personal retreat, as well as seating and meeting areas designed for break-out sessions and creative collaboration,” says John Heller, Anderson’s vice president of sales and team leader of the new showroom, in a press release. “Work has changed, and we are so very excited to bring this personalization and flexibility to the new generation of Pittsburgh workers.”

The showroom will be open by appointment daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to those in the industry and the public. For more information, visit or on Instagram at @westelmworkspacepgh.
