Plan your room in 3D.


Have you checked out our new 3D Room Planner? In this cool space-planning tool you’ll find renderings of DWR furniture that you can move around (without any heavy lifting) until you find the perfect placement. For inspiration, browse our Gallery of Cool Rooms, but don't worry if your room is not this elaborate. For example, the room I designed looks like something out of the "Money for Nothing" video by the Dire Straights.

Celebrate your modern Dad.

“Don’t be smart.” Dad said this (a lot) but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t like smart things. In fact, he’ll appreciate the smart design of our gift ideas. The game of Bocce dates back to the Roman Empire and has rules akin to those of soccer (with less running). Made from solid composite resin, our Pro Bocce Set includes traditional green and red balls (four of each color) and one 2-inch pallino. Father’s Day is June 19. See all Father's Day Gift Ideas.

On your to-do list for 55 years.

When designing their Lounge and Ottoman (1956), Charles and Ray Eames asked themselves, “How do you design a chair for someone else?” The solution they came up with was to look for the universal side of themselves and design for that, since “we all have more in common with each other than we do with a rock, tree or fish.” (P.S. The iconic Eames Lounge is included in The Herman Miller Sale at DWR.)
