Williams-Sonoma is an American retail company that sells kitchenwares and home furnishings. It is headquartered in San Francisco, California and was started by Charles Williams after he took his first trip to France in 1953. He quickly fell in love with French kitchenware such as copper cookware and shortly after returning home, he formulated a plan to import French cooking and serving equipment into America and converted his hardware store into a cookware shop in 1956.
