Today is a very special day for the Williams Sonoma family, Chuck Williams our founder and mentor is celebrating his 100th birthday. His will, creativity and passion for cooking has inspired all of us to do everything with love.

By founding Williams-Sonoma, Chuck gave amazing cookware to home cooks like the famous LeCreuset dutch oven, the real “aceto balsamico” and the beloved kitchenAid mixer. But Chuck has this passion about good cooking, he learned how to cook watching his grandma and as he actually admitted making mistakes in front of the stove: “Of course–that’s how you learn! Your mistakes teach you how to do things right the next time.”

Monogram vs Personalization, a guide

Thinking about celebrating a milestone with a monogram? Or do you think it should be something personalized instead? With our personalization and monogramming guide we want to make it easy for you to decide, so we have some tips to make the best of both worlds.

Choose your words: the best thing about personalized gifts is that you can use your recently acquired last name or your new address, a pet name or you might want to make the distinction between your water and wine carafes.
