Congratulations to the winners of our 2014 DWR Champagne Chair Contest. Our judges -- design journalist Pilar Viladas, designer Theo Richardson of the design trio Rich Brilliant Willing and designer David Weeks -- send their sincere appreciation to all the entrants this year.
First Place and a $1,000 DWR Gift Card goes to Dale Foronda for his "Lounge Pod." After sketching out ideas for a few days, Dale finally decided he would need a Dremel rotary tool with grinding stone bits, Olfa SVR1 utility knife, cutting mat and sand paper to build his chair. It took 1.5 hours to complete. "I wanted to create a chair that was simple, and yet maintain the integrity of the champagne cork without deviating too far from its original form," says Foronda. Here's what our judges had to say:
“It’s inventive. Concise.” –Pilar Viladas
“This could be made into a real chair, at full scale, made out of cork, for us to actually sit in.” –Theo Richardson

Last night we celebrated the Grand Opening of our West Hollywood Studio. It was an amazing evening with delicious treats and libations from Heirloom LA Catering and Orin Swift. Partygoers also enjoyed a scavenger hunt for their favorite chair and most fabulous party shoes, which they then shared on Instagram using #dwrwesthollywood. See below for our favorites, and stop by the Studio for a tour of our beautiful new space.

On the cover of our April 2004 catalog, we toasted the success of our first DWR Champagne Chair Contest. This year’s contest starts tomorrow, which means that you now have a great reason to crack open the bubbly tonight (or right now … it’s the holidays, after all). In general, designers, it works like this: Make a miniature chair using only the wire cage, foil, paper and cork from no more than two champagne bottles. Seems simple enough, but check the official rules before you rush ahead and risk wasting a perfectly good bottle, if that’s even possible. Then uncork your creativity and raise a toast to great design!

As advocates of authentic modern design, DWR and Be Original Americas recently hosted a discussion at our Miami Design District Studio about why authenticity matters. Be Original was founded last year to promote the preservation of authentic design and its future.
The panel comprised a lineup of influential figures in the world of original design, who commented on topics ranging from what causes knockoff culture to how we can foster original design today. To read Dave Pinter’s review of the discussion and to see great photos of the panel and Studio, click here.
Design Within Reach is proud to join the founding members of Be Original Americas – including Cassina, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Herman Miller®, Vitra and others – in helping to combat counterfeit design. Being a member means that we’ve been vetted to be a retailer of authentic goods.

On the cover of our December 2005 catalog, we had some fun with Philippe Starck‘s Louis Ghost Chair, wrapping it with twine and stringing it with lights. It was our way of celebrating not just that chair but The Chair. Our way of saying, we know chairs, we get chairs, we love chairs! Chairs of every kind! From reclining, rocking and lounge to dining, outdoor and desk. Stop by your local DWR Studio to join us for a celebratory sit-in with dozens of authentic modern chairs waiting for a test drive.
