OUR STORY

How everything
started

Westwing was founded in 2011 by Delia Lachance (née Fischer) and four co-founders. Delia had previously worked as an editor for ELLE and ELLE Decoration magazines. During this time she was continuously looking for beautiful Home & Living products and inspiring online shops. So, she founded one herself. Westwing is now present in 12 European countries and has generated EUR 429 million revenue in 2023.

Our Idea

The Beautiful Living Company

Our Founder

Delia Lachance (née Fischer) was recognised as one of the 100 most influential businesswomen in Germany by BCG and Manager Magazin. Through her enthusiasm, passion, and perseverance, she and her team have established Europe’s No. 1 premium one-stop destination for Home & Living.

At Westwing, we believe that beauty goes beyond aesthetics. For us it encompasses the moments that make life truly beautiful. Beauty can be found in a product, but we also want to inspire and celebrate the small moments that elevate the everyday. Beautiful Living has always been Delia’s purpose. This passion combined with our creative team has enabled her to build Westwing.

“I founded Westwing because I always had a strong passion for interior design. My mother has always made sure that our home looked pretty. We always had daisies or garden herbs on our dining table. It was the little details chosen with love. This has strongly shaped me.”

Delia Lachance (née Fischer), Westwing Founder & Chief Creative Officer

“As an editor at ELLE and ELLE Decoration, I noticed that you can buy the best fashion everywhere online, but there was nothing for interior. Finding stylish and affordable Home & Living products online was almost impossible. In addition, the greatest brands and all the wonderful pieces that I saw while traveling, at fairs and in magazines, were either not available or unaffordable. That’s how I had the idea for Westwing: A shoppable magazine with the aim to inspire you every day to make your home more beautiful.” - Delia Lachance (née Fischer), Westwing Founder & Chief Creative Officer
