In a 1956 Time magazine cover story, Eero Saarinen said that the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world and he was designing a new collection to clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home. Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table (1956), whose form was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. This iconic table features a cast-aluminum base with abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish and a solid marble, wood veneer or laminate tabletop. Each is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinens signature. This is the authentic Saarinen Pedestal Table by Knoll. Base made in China; tabletop made in Italy or U.S.A., depending on material. Stone masters carefully select marble with the best composition and veining to create tops for marble Saarinen Pedestal Tables. Please rest assured that each ones unique markings are not imperfections but rather the very traits that make it a true one of a kind. Polished-coated marble tops have a glossy polyester coating, and satin-coated marble tops have a matte satin polyester coating; both types help protect against stains. Materials: Cast-aluminum base with Rilsan® finish; solid marble, wood veneer or laminate tabletop with beveled edge. Solid marble: Arabescato (white with heavy grey veining), Nero Marquina or Verde Alpi (green with black and white veining). Wood veneer: MDF with cathedral-grain ebonized walnut, oak, walnut or Pau Ferro rosewood veneer. Laminate: MDF with laminate. Measurements:H 20" Diameter 20"
George Nakashima regarded cabinetry and woodwork as a noble art form – a view evidenced in the pieces he designed for Knoll. His Splay-Leg Coffee Table (1946) exhibits his gifted sense of grain, texture and balance. The veneered walnut or hickory top has a reverse slip-matched cathedral grain, which allows the table to be placed facing either way. Mortise and tenon joints and brass hardware secure the top to the angled solid walnut legs, creating a simple, heirloom-quality modern classic. Nakashima referred to himself as a Japanese shaker, expressing the belief that his designs should be treated as everyday functional objects, not precious possessions. The Shaker influence can be noted in his extraordinary skill at crafting wood, a material he approached with great reverence, saying, A tree is our most intimate contact with nature. A signature plate on the underside of the table attests to its authenticity. Manufactured by Knoll. Materials: Walnut or hickory veneer; solid walnut; brass hardware.

DWR Exclusive Originally known as Davey & Co., the company was established in 1885 and has roots dating back to the shipyards of 19th-century London. Its clients back then were the marine merchants operating out of London's West India Docks, and Davey Lights graced the decks of many of history's best-known vessels, including, it is said, the Titanic. Architects and designers have been longtime fans of Davey's industrial aesthetic, like their Well Pendant (2005), and satisfying the needs of this market helped the company continue to thrive. When manufacturing challenges brought the threat of closure, Peter Bowles stepped in and purchased the company. As part of Original BTC, which Bowles founded, Davey Lighting now supplies marine, industrial and decorative lighting to residential and contract customers – making Davey available to the public (instead of only to the trade) for the first time. All components are handcrafted by small specialist suppliers according to centuries-old traditions. Bulb (not included) 60W/GLS/E26. UL Listed. Made in England. Light is supplied as standard with 1.5 meters (approx. 5 feet) of cable, stainless steel wire and a ceiling hook plate. This pendant is for indoor use only. Materials: Galvanized iron; brass suspension loop; clear well glass; stainless steel wire. Measurements:H 13" W 4", 4 lbs.
The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 Collections (1928) as cushion baskets, which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style. The resulting aesthetic of the simple tubular structure is remarkably relevant to how we live today, almost 90 years later. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassinas Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy. The differences between the collections are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has the option of either down- or Dacron-wrapped cushions. Materials: Chromed steel frame; nylon webbing; multi-density composite foam cushions with down wrap; top-grain semi-aniline leather upholstery; nickel-plated steel glides. Measurements:H 24.5" W 93.5" D 28.75" Seat H 15.75"
DWR Exclusive Designer Jeffrey Bernett was being a bit cheeky with the name of his Parallel Bedroom Collection (2013), given that it features beds with headboards shaped more like trapezoids. However, we think the name still fits because this is indeed a collection without parallel when it comes to choices. You can equip your bed with a standard or extra-wide headboard, oak or walnut frame and fabric or leather upholstery, then opt for side tables and under-bed storage, as well as dressers tall and wide. Parallel is more than a bed – its a system for an entire room. Assembly required for beds. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Oak veneer over MDF; push-latch drawer glides; leveling floor glides. Measurements:H 55" W 21" D 20"
DWR Exclusive Running into legendary designer Jens Risom in the halls at DWR headquarters was one of the many pleasures of working here. Over the years, we collaborated with Risom on a number of product launches. The Jens Bench (2008) came about when we worked with him to re-launch his Chair and Ottoman, originally designed in 1949 for the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico. Decades had passed since this collection was in production, and Risom worked closely with us on every step of its return, from reviewing prototypes, to adjusting tiny details, to advocating cost-effective changes in the manufacturing process. Like all the furniture by this iconic designer, this collection has a subtle Scandinavian sensibility that works with modern and traditional settings. Or, as Risom put it, Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid oak or walnut frame; solid plywood top with oak or walnut veneer; fabric or Elmosoft Scandinavian semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:Bench: H 15.5" W 63" D 18" Cushion: H 3.5" W 47" D 17"
DWR Exclusive Danish designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn named their company Norm to express their dedication to working with Danish norms and standards refined over hundreds of years, says Bjerre-Poulsen, rather than rejecting them in the endless search for new. The sincerity of their approach – bypassing flashy design for good design – shows in the quality of their work. These are products that endure both physically and aesthetically. The Finn Collection (2013) they developed for Design Within Reach is directly tied to their philosophy in that it was built on a passion for details, tactility in design and creating for the need. Norm products never crave to be anything but what they are, says Rønn. That is the combination of utility, purity and quiet beauty. The teak frames can be oiled to maintain their original color or left alone to develop a beautiful silvery patina. Made in Indonesia. This table has a removable plug to accommodate an umbrella. The Finn Collection has been honored with a 2015 Architizer A+ Jury Award – selected by 300-plus international architecture and design leaders – and a 2014 Chicago Athenaeum Good Design® Award. Materials: Solid sustainably harvested teak frame; black powder-coated or brushed stainless steel fittings. Measurements:H 28.75" W 86.75" D 36"
DWR Exclusive Designers Thomas Müller and Jörg Wulff are the co-founders of Berlin-based Müller and Wulff, a design firm they started in 2001. The duo knows a few things about conceiving furniture that serves multiple purposes, developing a penchant for creating sleeper sofas that work overtime for those who are, well, working overtime. Their eminently versatile Tuck Sleeper Sofa (2013) serves as a comfortable sofa, sleep-satisfying bed and even as a group chaise thanks to a padded back area behind the pillows thats comfortable to lean against. Quickly convert Tuck from sofa to sleeper simply by lifting up the seat and pulling it toward you. It comes fitted with narrow armrests to maximize the sitting and sleeping area. Made in Denmark. Materials: Steel frame and base; FSC-certified plywood arms; high-resilience polyurethane foam cushions; powder-coated steel legs; fabric upholstery. Vision Cotton: 85% cotton, 15% polyester. Crepe Linen: 54% polyester, 26% cotton, 20% linen. Measurements:H 29" W 85" D 39" (53.5" open) Seat H 15.75"
Josef Hoffmann is well known for the simple, restrained, yet visually interesting dining chairs – several intended for cafés – that he designed early in the 20th century. The influence of the Arts and Crafts movement can be seen in his work, but Hoffmann also embraced the industrial age. Rather than rejecting traditional decoration, he succeeded in making it serve structural principles, which he believed should determine the forms of buildings, interiors and objects. Whether admiring one of his chairs or the Sanatorium Purkersdorf he designed in 1903, you can see Hoffmanns emphasis on straight, unadorned lines, characteristics that are in keeping with the style of the Viennese Secession. The Hoffmann Armchair (1925), designed in collaboration with Josef Frank, is made at the bentwood factory founded by Michael Thonet in 1861. Made in the Czech Republic. Materials: Solid European beech wood from FSC-certified sources; caned seat; water-based stain and clear varnish; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 31.5" W 19.5" D 21" Seat H 18" Arm H 27.5"

Born in England, Jasper Morrison was raised in both Germany and the United States before his family settled in London, where he attended Kingston College School of Art & Design and the Royal College of Art. Morrison is a self-described conceptual designer, taking familiar shapes and repurposing them into fresh ones. Believing that what you dont see is as important as what you do see, he designed and engineered Alfi (2015) to be an ordinary chair with extraordinary invisible qualities. Its seat is made from reclaimed post-industrial waste, and its base is made of responsibly harvested wood handcrafted by Amish woodworkers. Adding even more extra to its extraordinariness, Morrison shaped the seat as a nod to cane chairs seen at sidewalk cafés found throughout Paris. The result is simple and simply beautiful, and one hes pleased with: Its one of the most comfortable chairs I have designed. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Reclaimed post-industrial waste seat (92.5% polypropylene; 7.5% wood fiber); solid ash base. Measurements:H 24.25" W 17" D 18.75" Seat H 18"
DWR Exclusive Were very excited to bring you the latest sofa collection from Bernett and Dodziuk, two designers weve worked with since DWR was founded. Hand-built by a California-based manufacturer thats been making comfortable sofas and chairs for more than 50 years, the Camber Sofa Collection (2013) satisfies the designers goal to find the best size and scale for products to maximize living, while refraining from dominating a room, explains Bernett. The result is extreme comfort within slender proportions. Covers are removable for cleaning. Legs ship unattached; simple assembly required. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Kiln-dried, corner-blocked FSC-certified hardwood frames; unidirectional web suspension; high-resiliency foam seat cushions with down and feather wrap in down-proof ticking; Poly-fil®-, feather- and down-blend back cushions; stainless steel legs; fabric upholstery. Measurements:H 32" W 93" D 36.5" Seat H 17.5" Arm H 22.75"
DWR Exclusive A DWR best-seller for over a decade, the Bantam Collection (2004) celebrates the soft, less-machined brand of modernism that arose in the United States in the 1930s. Delivering physical comfort as well as aesthetic pleasure, the entire frame is lightly padded and finely upholstered with a fitted back and a single row of button tufting. Matching piping along the seams reinforces the clean lines of Bantams frame. Tapered solid wood legs lend visual lightness. Made in U.S.A. Use the Bantam Cocktail Ottoman to extend this sofa or create an L-shape. Legs finished in a rich walnut stain. For legs in a honey or coffee finish, contact a DWR Studio or call us at 1.800.944.2233.

Craving furniture that could stand up to the salty environment of her seaside home in Florida, Florence Knoll called on Richard Schultz to create a decent set of outdoor furniture made out of materials that wont rust or corrode. That was in 1962, and Schultz spent the next four years designing his refined 1966 Collection, originally known as the Knoll Leisure Collection. At a time when most outdoor furniture was stamped out of metal with backrests shaped like bouquets of flowers, the 1966 Collection brought the clean lines and balanced proportions of indoor modern furniture to outdoor living. In the years since its debut, the collection has been re-engineered to take advantage of modern materials like Teflon® thread. In creating the 1966 Collection, Schultz satisfied Florence Knolls request for outdoor furniture that lasts, and many of the sets purchased 50 years ago are still being enjoyed today. The 1966 Collection is included in the permanent collection at MoMA. This is the authentic 1966 Adjustable Chaise by Knoll. Made in U.S.A. The large wheels can spin at different speeds thanks to their differential axles, making the 1966 Adjustable Chaise easy to move. This chaise adjusts from fully flat to four angles of recline. Fitted cover sold separately. Materials: Cast and extruded aluminum frame; weather-resistant polyester powder-coated finish; woven vinyl-coated polyester mesh; pure vinyl straps; Teflon thread; stainless steel supports and connectors; cast aluminum wheels with rubber tires and differential axles. Measurements:H 36" W 25.5" D 76" Seat H 14.25"
DWR Exclusive A native of Copenhagen, Jens Risom studied in his youth under furniture maker Kaare Klint, alongside the likes of Hans Wegner and Børge Mogensen. In 1939, he immigrated to the U.S. and began what would become a towering career, originally marked by his innovative work for Knoll and by the founding of his own studio in 1946, Jens Risom Design. Museum curators have credited him with providing a vital link between Scandinavian and American midcentury design, and his work is included in the collections of MoMA and the Cooper Hewitt, among many others. Risom introduced his T.710 Small Side Table (1950) at a time when he was experimenting with metal. He was fascinated by the negative space the table defines between its base and top and by the illusion of floating the top creates. This table is perfect for tight areas due to its compact size and small footprint. Stacks up to three high. Made in Malaysia. Materials: American walnut top; powder-coated steel base.

In 1944, Niels Otto Møller began his cabinetry company, where old craft traditions, like the hand-woven seat on the Model 80A Stool (1963), are still used today. Danish cord seats are known for their durability easily withstanding decades of frequent use and the strength of this material made it a smart substitute for tires when rubber was in short supply during WWII. What's amazing about that history is that Danish cord is made of tightly twisted paper. Being a natural material, Danish cord is very pleasant to sit on and the way that it's woven provides lasting comfort. Thirty years after he founded his company, Niels Otto Møller began exporting his chairs to Japan, which remains one of its biggest markets due to the simplicity and quality of the design and craftsmanship. Møllers is still a small family-owned business and is now managaged by Niels' son, Jørgen Henrik Møller. This Stool is an authentic, fully licensed product of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. The seat is woven by hand from one continuous 498-foot-long piece of cord. To make the frames, the company selects the raw wood themselves from environmentally friendly areas. Machines are never used for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and can’t replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand. Materials Teak or walnut frame; woven paper seat in natural.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohes Barcelona Couch (1930) was added to his Barcelona Collection in the year following the introduction of the Chair and Stool. Still produced to his original specifications, the couch gained widespread popularity in 1953, when architect Philip Johnson selected it for his New York apartment. The cushions – welting and buttons included – come from a single Spinneybeck Volo cowhide and are supported by cowhide belting straps. To create the deep, precise tufting, individual panels of leather are cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted. The frame is made from African mahogany sapele hardwood, with stainless steel legs. The bolster cushion is crafted from coordinating leather and secured to the couch with straps and locking snaps. The Barcelona Couch is a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc., manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A. Materials: African sapele hardwood frame with protective clear lacquer finish; cowhide leather straps; rubber webbing; polished stainless steel legs; Dacron®-wrapped high-resiliency urethane foam and fiberfill cushions; Spinneybeck® Volo semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 25" W 39" D 78" Seat H 15.5"
The Eameses designed their Eames Sofa (1967) to complement their Soft Pad Collection, showing off a harmonious blend of wood, leather and polished aluminum. It stands as a graceful reminder of the honest genius of Eames designs, equally fitting for home or office, with carefully considered details. The frame and back panels are constructed of rich solid wood and hand-finished with gunstock oil. Legs and arm supports are made of die-cast aluminum polished to a bright finish. And plush foam cushions come upholstered in leather, with undersides covered in nylon for good ventilation, supported by resilient webbing for added comfort. The Eames Sofa was the last piece of furniture produced by the Eames Office and was completed after Charles Eames died in 1978. Its been in continuous production since 1984. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid walnut or solid teak frame and back; die-cast polished aluminum legs and arm supports; polyurethane foam cushions; fabric-reinforced rubber webbing; leather upholstery; stainless steel glides. Measurements:Two-Seat: H 33" W 56" D 30" Seat H 16.5" Arm H 22" Three-Seat: H 33" W 80" D 30" Seat H 16.5" Arm H 22"
Award-winning industrial designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick earned themselves a place in what amounts to the design hall of fame when their Aeron Chair (1994) was added to the permanent collection of MoMA. Aeron is the paradigm of ergonomic seating, conceived to conform not only to different body shapes but also to movement, with multiple adjustment points for a custom fit. Pellicle weave upholstery evenly distributes weight over the seat and back while permitting ample air circulation. A lumbar support pad adjusts to fit the natural curve of your middle and lower back, with a sliding design that can be flipped over to change seat depth. And the Kinemat tilt mechanism moves smoothly with the user from forward tilt (when you reach for the phone) to backward recline (while you contemplate what to say). Durable and sleek, this chair will still look like new long after you retire. Design doesnt get more civilized. This is the authentic Aeron Chair produced by Herman Miller. Constructed of 66% recycled materials. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer's warranty. Made in U.S.A. Aeron features Pellicle weave upholstery, lumbar support pad, tilt limiter with seat angle adjustment, adjustable arms (height and angle) and 2.5-inch standard carpet casters. Materials: Pellicle® weave upholstery; Kinemat® tilt mechanism; adjustable back with lumbar support pad; die-cast aluminum frame and base; polyurethane foam arm pads; standard 2.5-inch black nylon carpet casters. Measurements:Size A: H 41" max W 26" D 26" Seat H 14.5"–19.5" Recommended if you are: 4'10"–5'2" Tall, 90–130 lbs.
DWR Exclusive Designer Walter Lamb was experimenting with bronze and copper tubing salvaged from sunken naval ships at Pearl Harbor when he created the prototype for his iconic outdoor collection. Today the pieces are crafted from weatherproof brass that will develop a rich patina over time (or it can be polished to return the surface to its original luster). The Walter Lamb Rectangular Dining Table (1940s) has a tempered glass tabletop with a sculptural brass base. The brass frame will not rust and does not need to be refinished. This collection was recognized with a MoMA design award. Made in Mexico. Materials: Unfinished tubular brass; tempered glass. Measurements:H 28" W 77" D 43"
Charles and Ray Eames believed design is a method of action, and they continually updated their work as new materials became available. The chair that Charles and Ray were designing, explains grandson Eames Demetrios, is the chair thats made tomorrow . The duo originally designed their molded chair in metal and entered it as a prototype in MoMAs 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design, then refashioned it in light yet strong fiberglass just two years later. In the 1980s, after determining fiberglass production was detrimental to the environment, Herman Miller ceased production to explore more sustainable options, eventually choosing recyclable polypropylene. The company never quite forgot about fiberglass, however, and it recently began researching greener production methods. The Eames Molded Fiberglass Chair (1950) is the end result, constructed using a cleaner process but true to the original with its beloved variegated surface. This reintroduced version comes in a range of reformulated semi-gloss color pigments that faithfully reproduce the vintage ones. Its deep seat pocket and waterfall edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of your thighs. The seat back is left unfinished to maintain a slightly rough natural texture for easier gripping with your hands. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DFAR stands for dining-height fiberglass armchair with rod base. Made of 98% recyclable materials and covered by Herman Millers take-back program for environmentally sound recycling (should you ever wish to part with this chair). Materials: Fiberglass-reinforced plastic seat; black powder-coated or chrome-plated steel base; leveling floor glides; Hopsak upholstery (100% recycled polyester). The process for making shells and the nature of fiberglass mean that each shell is unique and can possess traits such as tiny cavities in the surface, small points of lighter or darker color, or faint circular shadows where base attaches to shell.

Form follows function, and nowhere is that more apparent than in a sculpted chair that anticipates the curves of the human body. Arne Jacobsen designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for its busy lobby, he created the biomorphic Egg (1958). With this chair, Jacobsen embraced new materials that allowed him to shape fluid curves and single-piece molded shells. At a time when others were experimenting with bent tubular steel, Jacobsen focused on the upholstered armchair, believing a solution existed that was still true to modern ideals. Indeed, he met that goal. Set on a rotating base, the Egg Chair allows sitters to swivel toward a conversation area or away from others if privacy is desired. It also tilts back for relaxed lounging. This is the authentic Egg Chair manufactured by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland. The Egg Chair tilts and swivels. Finely upholstered, the fabric or leather is hand-sewn onto the frame. Materials: Fiberglass-reinforced polyurethane foam shell; satin-chromed steel column; injection-molded aluminum base; fabric or leather upholstery. GabrielÂ® FameÂ® upholstery: 95% wool, 5% polyamide. Maharam KvadratÂ® Tonus upholstery: 90% wool, 10% HelancaÂ®. Basel upholstery: 90% new wool, 10% nylon; Sorensen leather piping. Leather upholstery: full-grain leather or cowhide. Measurements:H 42.25" W 34" D 37.5" Seat H 14.5"
DWR Exclusive Atlanta-based industrial designer Chris Hardy, who made his design debut at Salone del Mobile in 2011, created the sculptural Helix Coffee Table (2012) for DWR. He gave it an odd number of legs and positioned the brass castings to radiate out from the center, resulting in a distinctive asymmetrical form that looks different from every angle. For Helix, I was inspired by the challenge of personalization in the modern world, and the increasing desire that we have to own objects that match our own styles and philosophies – in the way that art does, explains Hardy. Made by hand, the cast brass base has a natural finish thats soft and not highly polished; minor pitting and irregularities in the brass are typical of the casting process and are not defects. Thick and durable, the annealed glass tabletop is slowly cooled in a kiln to relieve internal stresses after its formed. Leveling glides adjust for uneven floors. Simple assembly required; no tools necessary. Base made in India; tabletop made in U.S.A. Materials: Cast brass; solid walnut; glass. Measurements:H 20" Diameter 20"
Midcentury Danish design master and chair-maker of chair-makers Hans Wegner never saw quality and quantity as mutually exclusive. An innovator of organic functionalism, he designed more than 500 chairs in his lifetime, many of which are heralded as design icons. His CH88 Stacking Chair (1955) is but one of them, fusing warm wood and industrial steel in one unified form. It combines a steam-molded wooden back with upturned ends to provide a natural resting place for your arms and an oval wooden seat on a tubular steel frame. Carl Hansen & Søn launched the CH88 Stacking Chair in 2014 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Wegners birth. Stacks up to four high. Made in Denmark. Materials: Lacquered beech seat and back; powder-coated steel frame. Measurements:H 30.25" W 22.5" D 17.5" Seat H 17.5"
DWR Exclusive With his Costura Sofa Collection (2015), Jon Gasca wanted to bring back the practice of working with artisans, and celebrate the noble traditions of the small ateliers were surrounded by in San Sebastin, he says. The stunning result is a collection that combines slim frames and tailored lines with plush back cushions shaped to provide lumbar support and a roomy seat that invites serious lounging. My grandmother was a tailor for the fashion house Balenciaga, says the designer. I wanted to use all the tailoring techniques I learned from her and bring them into the future. The collections name means sewing or couture in English. Like choices? You can align the legs to be straight or diagonal. Made in Spain; upholstered in Italian fabric. Materials: Molded plywood frame with Dacron® wrap; belt suspension; foam seat cushions; feather-filled back pillows; painted aluminum legs. Linen Weave: 51% viscose, 28% cotton, 21% flax.

Also known as the Time-Life Chair, this iconic piece was originally created for the executive floors of New York Citys Time-Life Building. How those lucky executives were able to get an Eames chair designed just for them began with Time-Life Chairman Henry Luce. In 1959, Charles Eames asked Luce for photographs from the Time-Life archive to be used in a slideshow he was creating for the U.S. pavilion at the Moscow World Exhibition. Luce agreed, as long as Eames promised to return the favor one day. The following year, Eames made good on that promise, and 50 years later, the world is still enjoying the results of that arrangement. The generously sized Eames Executive Chair (1960) tilts, swivels and has a height-adjustable seat with thick, plush cushions. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer's warranty. This is the authentic Eames Executive Chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Five-star polished or black powder-coated die-cast aluminum base and frame with tubular steel column; Maharam Messenger fabric (78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester, 7% nylon), Spinneybeck® Vicenza leather or MCL all-grain leather upholstery. Measurements:H 35.5"–37" W 26.5" D 29.5" Seat H 18.5"–20"

DWR Exclusive The Matera Collection (2007), focused on delivering ample storage, is the work of Sean Yoo, who at the time of its conception lived in Matera, Italy (thus its name). Born in Seoul, Yoo grew up in Los Angeles and was working as a city planner when a visit to the Noguchi Museum in New York inspired him to pursue design. I was particularly attracted to the way Noguchi applied sculptural qualities to common household objects, says Yoo. It seemed to give meaning and purpose to otherwise meaningless objects. The Matera Collection features clean lines nicely finished with beveled edges, running match-wood grain and exposed-slot mortise-and-tenon corner joints. All pieces have slotted bases that lend an airy feel. The Matera Armoire has side panels that rest off the floor and three drawers, an interior mirror, a clothing rod and hooks for scarves and ties. Made in Malaysia. Materials: Solid walnut or oak case frame and drawer fronts; walnut or oak veneer over MDF case panels with thick solid walnut or oak edging; vacuum-closing drawer glides; mirrored glass.
