The Salt Lake City store will feature West Elm’s signature furniture and home decor, as well as seasonal items and "collaborations." The cooperative efforts will include dinnerware from stationary designer Kamal, cutlery from Schmidt Brothers, and ceramics, textiles and more from different South African artists, according to a company release.

The retailer — which also sells bedding, lighting, rugs, bath accessories and dining room items —has a Design Lab in the store that allows customers to design projects and plan space in their homes.

The store will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays. It, along with all other retailers at City Creek Center, are closed on Sundays.

The center, which opened in March, has more than 100 stores and 22 places to eat. The Apple Store at The Gateway downtown is expected to move to City Creek by the end of the year, and Microsoft has been issued a building permit for a retail store there.

The mall, which is managed and owned by Michigan-based Taubman Centers Inc., is part of the larger City Creek project that includes residential units and office space. The property is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
