Throwback Thursday: Big fans of tiny chairs.

  Photo-1

Vitra Miniatures – shown here on our November 2000 catalog – continue to be a favorite gift by designers for designers. Each handmade Vitra Miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design, reduced in size at a 6-1 ratio. Almost never on sale, we're offering 25% off + free shipping for a limited time. It's a big sale on tiny chairs.

Welcome to the holiday season! It’s been an amazing year so far. For those who have worked diligently and been fortunate enough to experience success, congratulations are in order. Be sure to take some time to enjoy and share the fruits of your labor. At DWR we believe the best possible gift to give or receive is the gift of authentic modern design, whether it be an Eames® Lounge Chair or a Greta Grossman Desk. If you are as passionate as we are about these items and others like them, go ahead and make yourself or someone you love – or both – very happy.

Happy holidays.

Throwback Thursday: Boo!

  Photo-1

We're haunted by some DWR catalog covers of the past, but not this one from February 2005. A staple in our assortment for more than a decade, the Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck continues to impress us with its paranormal powers.

Throwback Thursday: Pouf! The sale is (almost) over.

  Photo-1

Today is the last day of our Semiannual Sale. To mark the occasion, we're looking back to our June 2005 catalog showcasing the Primary Pouf. Still a customer favorite, the weather-proof Pouf is made of a proprietary foam that's firm enough to use as a table and soft enough to use as a seat.

As for why there's a foot-measuring device in this photo, I'm not really sure. Perhaps the person is buying sneakers and using the Primary Pouf to tie her shoe? Or his shoe? So many questions...

The Semiannual Sale ends today!

Throwback Thursday: our modern model.

_MG_7201

When the model didn't show for this 2000 DWR cover photoshoot at Haines Gallery in San Francisco, founder Rob Forbes jumped on his scooter and zipped over to Geary Street. He saved the day, and the photo turned out to be more authentic and true DWR than what we had planned. "I guess I used to have brown hair and wear khakis," says Rob.

Dear Readers,

We hope you had a nice summer. It was a hot season in Connecticut, but as you can see from our 150-page September catalog, the heat didn’t slow us down. In fact, we’ve been busier than ever making authentic modern design accessible. We’ve launched products from Jeffrey Bernett, Chris Hardy, Brad Ascalon, Milo Baughman and others, introduced our first-ever line of textiles with amazing responses from you and even remerchandised every DWR Studio. Have you been in yet? If not, please stop by. Our passion for design has led us to accomplish more in the past year than ever in the history of Design Within Reach. Visit our Studios, use our iPad app, surf our website and read our blog. Our message is consistent and clear: We believe in authenticity and accessibility of modern design.

Thank you for believing in us and supporting us.

We've got lots of new.

Dear Readers,

Sometimes ambitious is different from ambition. The latter can be a negative, especially when employed to chase fame or power, while the former can describe work of true integrity. That’s why I’m proud to say that the August catalog is our most ambitious to date. We’ve launched two new sofa collections, rolled out one big bedroom collection and updated our entire textile selection – all at the same time. We’ve been to Europe, Asia and across the U.S. to deliver you excitement like you’ve never seen. Our designers have worked tirelessly to bring our mutual passion for authentic modern design to your doorstep. Come now to one of our exciting Studios, go to dwr.com to see everything that’s new, or use our iPad app to learn and be inspired. Let us excite you and share our overwhelming joy in what we’ve accomplished. Thank you for believing in us and supporting us.

Torture in the marketing department.

Photo-13

As if a stack of books wouldn't be tempting enough, my marketing colleagues wrapped these in colorful, beautifully made textiles and then labeled them "don't touch." Wondering why we're playing with textiles? Tune in on Friday for an exciting launch at DWR.

In his own words: Miguel Avila, winner of the DWR Eames House Contest.

IMG_0335
Eames Molded Plastic Chair on the lawn at the Eames House.

To win this trip was amazing. I was notified on a Friday but it took the entire weekend for the news to really sink in. My wife and I were really happy.

This was our second visit to Los Angeles. We had been there before, about five years ago, but on a different kind of trip (a Disneyland-Universal Studios kind of trip). This time we were able to see a more sophisticated side of LA. Even though it was just a few days, we were able to cover a lot of ground. There were, of course, the wonderful tours of the Eames House and the Stahl House, but we also visited the incredible exhibition of Urs Fischer at MOCA, the Dwell on Design event at the Convention Center, The Getty and the Griffith Observatory with their magnificent views of LA, and even had a chance to enjoy a little bit of Santa Monica before running back to the airport on the last day.
