File under: Design Within Reach (DWR), For the Home, Furniture
Through its catalog and studios, Design Within Reach has brought modern furniture to the masses. Once, finding an Eames Lounge Chair required an appointment at an upscale boutique where you paid a premium and waited months for delivery. Now, through DWR, all you need is $4,000 and the product should arrive within days. Don’t be scared by the high prices — some of the more famous pieces are costly, but many of the items are a bit more acceptable and there are plenty of products below $200 and even below $100.
We are writing about DWR because today is the first day of their semi-annual sale. From now until October 16th, nearly 1,000 items are 10% off. While the sale excludes some of the more popular items (namely Herman Miller products) it does include many beautiful pieces such as the LC4 Chaise Longue shown above which is based on Le Corbusier’s famed “Relaxing Machine” (and yes, it’s available in cowhide). Maybe your living room is missing the Arco Lamp seen hovering above this post or you are just looking for an Alessi Lupita Dog Bowl (now only $61.20). The sale covers nearly every department at the store including furniture, gifts, clocks, pillows, lighting, rugs, and much more.
