Chuck Williams founded Williams-Sonoma in Sonoma, California, in 1956 with the goal of bringing the best French kitchenware to home cooks in America. Today Williams-Sonoma offers an exceptional selection of cookware, serveware, tools and linens, along with distinctive foods, cooking ingredients and a comprehensive list of cookbooks. The spacious Williams-Sonoma stores feature central "tasting bars," full demonstration kitchens and sales associates who are knowledgeable and provide outstanding service.
