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.

Finn Juhl designed the Poet Sofa (1941) for use in his own home, located in Charlottenlund, a rural area north of Copenhagen. Today, the Juhl house – which is an early example of open-plan design and offers views to its garden from every room – is part of the Ordrupgaard Museum. Being connected to the landscape was something that Juhl both lived and practiced, and the influence is notable in the organic forms of his furniture. Being a true sensualist, Juhl created his furniture to be comfortable, made with the best craftsmanship traditions and showing an appreciation of materials. This is the authentic Poet Sofa by Onecollection. Made in Denmark. The color combinations are: beige with teal cushion and beige tufted buttons; grey with red cushion and red tufted buttons; tan with brown cushion and brown tufted buttons; charcoal with grey cushion and grey tufted buttons. For Cream, Charcoal, Gold, Indigo and Red, the frame, cushion and buttons are all the same color. Materials: Danish beech wood, Swedish pine wood and Masonite® frame; walnut legs; web suspension; canvas-linen bottom cover; 100% recyclable Pantera foam and cotton fiber padding; hand-sewn double-stitched fabric upholstery.

DWR Exclusive Upon receiving a masters degree in industrial design from Pratt in 2005, Brad Ascalon was recognized by Wallpaper * magazine as one of the Ten Most Wanted emerging designers in the world. He grew up immersed in art and design, with his grandfather and father both being sculptors. In creating this collection, he was inspired by Atlas, the Greek mythological character condemned for eternity to carry the heavens on his shoulders. Translating this into a physical object, Ascalon was intrigued by the challenge of making an elegant frame that could carry the weight of solid stone or thick glass. The Atlas Table (2012), like Atlas himself, exemplifies strength and endurance. Top made in China; base made in U.S.A. Best of Year! Were proud to announce that the Atlas Table received Interior Design magazines top honor for 2013 in the side table category Materials: Solid North American black walnut base; solid marble tabletop. Measurements:H 20" Diameter 21.5"
Eileen Gray was born in Ireland in 1878, studied at the Slade School of Art in London and then moved to Paris in 1907. She worked as an interior designer until 1922, when she opened her own shop, the Galerie Jean Désert. In mid-career, Gray became an architect and designed a home on the French Riviera to enjoy with her partner, architect Jean Badovici. To celebrate their relationship, they named the house E.1027, which is a cipher for their intertwined initials: The E is for Eileen, and the numbers 10, 2 and 7 represent the alphabetical order of the letters J, B and G, respectively. The furniture she designed for their seaside retreat included the Adjustable Table E1027 (1927). Like the house, the table is cantilevered, giving it visual weightlessness and the ability to hover over anywhere youre sitting. The fact that its height adjustable makes it an ideal solution for next to a bed, chair or sofa. This table is included in the permanent collection of MoMA. This is the authentic E1027, produced by ClassiCon and authorized by the World License Holder, Aram Designs Ltd. Made in Italy. Materials: Chromed or matte black powder-coated tubular steel; .25" thick clear or grey smoked glass. Measurements:H 24"–40" Diameter 20"
Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple organic form, the graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong Era Collection has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. It is the work of Michael Thonet, who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making and in the process eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. Swiss Architect Le Corbusier used Thonets chairs for his projects, stating, Never before was something more elegant and better in its conception, more precise in its realization and more fit for practical use created. Other fans of this ubiquitous form included Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, both of whom featured it in their paintings. The Era Backless Stool (1859/1998) was created by engineers at Ton – manufacturer of Thonet seating for well over a century – in response to customer requests. Like any natural material, the wood used in this collection displays slight texture and color variations from one piece to another, making each unique. Made in the Czech Republic. Materials: Solid beech wood from FSC-certified sources; beech plywood seat; natural beech finish or water-based stain and varnish or lacquer finish; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 24" Diameter 18.75"
Though hes known as the master of chairs, Danish modernism pioneer Hans Wegner didnt entirely neglect the other categories. Applying his signature organic, minimal form, the Wegner Coffee Table (1954) is perfectly balanced on three legs, defying gravity with its visual lightness. The solid walnut table has a clear lacquer finish, allowing the natural warmth of the wood to come though and requiring minimal maintenance. The table's compact size makes it versatile enough to be used in front of or next to the sofa or as a bedside table. Made in Denmark. Materials: Solid walnut with clear lacquer. Measurements:H 17.5" Diameter 30.75"
A chair is to have no backside, said Hans J. Wegner. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles. Sculptural and balanced, his Easy Chair (1950) embodies this maxim, a classic example of the organic functionalism for which he is famous. Its natural elegance is exemplified by the paper cord that creates the seat and back – more than 1300 feet of cord is used on each chair. Handwoven by a skilled craftsperson, its a process that takes eight to 10 hours. The solid oak frame has fluid lines and exacting joinery, which is expertly assembled and requires no hardware. Relaxed and intuitively ergonomic, the Easy Chair is just that – a seat that can easily blend with modern or traditional interiors, in nearly any room in the house. Made in Denmark. Materials: Black-lacquered or oiled oak frame; paper cord. Measurements:H 28.75" W 28" D 28.75" Seat H 13.75"
DWR Exclusive We discovered the Moebius Table (2006) in Parma, Italy, but with its endless looping base and delicately suspended glass surface, it defies national boundaries. The solid walnut foundation flares and narrows in six arcs, creating a look of poised animation. Each upright is accented by brass hardware and serves as a balance point for the thick glass top. The name was inspired by August Ferdinand Möbius, the German astronomer and mathematician who first published the discovery of the Möbius strip – a two-dimensional surface with only one side. To construct a model of it, take a rectangular piece of paper, give it a half twist and then tape its ends together. The resulting shape has one continuous curve – a bit like the base of Moebius. Reminiscent of the iconic Noguchi® Table, this piece is a classic in its own right, blending rhythmic form with straightforward function. Simple assembly required. Made in Malaysia. Materials: Solid walnut base; brass hardware; 0.75"-thick tempered glass top. Measurements:H 20.5" Diameter 28"
Heritage Rocking Armchair
Though hes renowned as chair-maker of chair-makers, Danish designer Hans Wegners stools are not to be ignored. The CH53 Stool (1966), handmade from solid oak and woven paper cord, embodies the warmth and minimalism of Wegners trademark organic functionalism. Suitable for a wide variety of uses, its tall enough to be used around a dining table and flexible enough for the living room, front hall or bedroom. Its look and feel complement other Wegner pieces such as the CH33, Elbow and Wishbone chairs. Made in Denmark. Materials: Solid Danish oak wood; black paint or natural oil; woven paper cord. Measurements:H 18.5" W 19.75" D 15.5"
Furniture that is too obviously designed, said Milo Baughman, is very interesting, but too often belongs only in museums. While we could certainly see his Drum Table (1970s) in a museum, it would earn its place there for its simplicity and lack of unnecessary ornamentation. Distilling the idea of an occasional table to its simplest form, Baughmans cylindrical design draws you in with its smoothness and warmth. It features seams that are painstakingly welded, ground and polished by hand until they blend in as much as possible. Once constructed, Drum is coated with bronze, oxidized and hand-relieved to give it a unique patina, eschewing the sterility of machine-made pieces. It includes leveling floor glides to compensate for uneven surfaces. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Steel with brushed bronze finish. Measurements:H 24" Diameter 22"
After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, Françoise Séjourné began her career by designing clothing for Esprit and shoes for Sam & Libby. It wasnt long before she was consulting Gap on color trends and starting not one but two successful businesses. This high-energy lifestyle left Séjourné craving one thing: a comfortable place to sit and relax. And thats when she created the Eazy Bean Everest Chair (2010), which led to the launch of Séjourné Studio. A luxurious twist on traditional beanbags, its really more like a chair, allowing you to sit in an upright or reclining position. Upholstered in a removable machine-washable fabric cover for easy cleaning. Made in U.S.A. Materials: EPS foam beans; 100% cotton liner; tech suede fabric cover (100% polyester microfiber). Measurements:H 32" W 40" D 40" Seat H 19"
DWR Exclusive Educated throughout Europe, Gordon Guillaumier earned his bachelors and masters degrees in industrial design from Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) and the Domus Academy, respectively. From there, Guillaumier apprenticed with Baleri Associati before starting a collaboration with architect and designer Rodolfo Dordoni. In 2002, he opened his own design studio in Milan, specializing in product and interior design. His alluring Cage Table Collection (2010), like many of his other works, is marked by its subtly flowing geometry. These tables feature precision-shaped one-piece bent steel bases that transition smoothly into platforms for their laminate tabletops, which are created by infusing numerous layers of paper with thermosetting resin and subjecting them to high pressure and heat. Fashioned to withstand years of heavy use, laminate surfaces boast exceptional resistance to scratching, staining, temperature extremes and sunlight exposure. Theyre also a cinch to clean. Made in Italy. Materials: High-pressure laminate top; painted bent steel frame. Measurements:H 22" Diameter 19.75"
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 well-received product launches. The Risom Rocker (2009) came about when he approached us with an idea for an upholstered rocking chair with a high back and sculpted armrests for superb head and arm support and comfort. This piece has a deep, smooth and balanced feeling thanks to a hidden counterweight precisely placed in the front rail. Its adorned with a nine-button tufted back, a nod toward the classic Danish modern aesthetic that can be found in all his work. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid oak or walnut frame; plywood panel under seat cushion; fabric or Elmosoft Scandinavian semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 39" W 29" D 36" Seat H 18" Arm H 24.5"
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"
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 As a theater and dance student at the University of West Virginia, Ted Boerner developed an intuitive sense of the body and the space it occupies – an awareness that now lends his furniture its genial angles and careful proportions. He attended NYU for grad school and began his career as a set and costume designer. Propping scenes and imagining the things that characters would surround themselves with made me think about how important furniture is to people, says the designer. Modern sofas often claim minimalist appeal, but few can also tout the comfort of the Theatre Collection (2001). Designed to accommodate the human body with studied proportions and simple geometry, Theatres comfort stems from its form rather than excessive layers of stuffing. With a gently angled backrest, full seat depth and elevated armrests, Boerners signature artisanal details are evident throughout. A gleaming chromed steel base runs the entire depth of the design, and welted seams lend strength and definition to the upholstery. Ships with legs unattached to save on packing materials. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Kiln-dried hardwood corner-blocked frame; unidirectional web suspension; high-density, high-resiliency foam cushions with Dacron® wrap; chrome-plated steel base; fabric or leather upholstery. Measurements:H 30" W 60" D 30.5" Seat H 19" Arm H 25.5"
Foremost a sculptor, Isamu Noguchi softened the edge of 20th-century modernism with his satisfyingly organic furniture designs. His sought-after classic Free Form Sofa and Ottoman (1946) have been newly reissued by the Vitra Design Museum in partnership with the Isamu Noguchi Foundation. A statement-making piece, the sofa has a grandly scaled, open form that accommodates multiple people. The design is lightly padded and provides a firm seating surface for public spaces and formal living rooms. The ottoman nestles into the sofa's curved form to function as a footrest, perch or table. Low, rounded maple legs in either a walnut-stained or natural finish lend a sense of animation. Anthracite fabric upholstery features walnut-stained legs; green and light grey feature natural maple finished legs. The sofa and ottoman are part of a serial edition and feature numbered plates of authenticity. Covers are removable for dry-cleaning. Made in Germany. Due to the size, weight and packaging of this item, we strongly recommend our White Glove delivery service. Please review our shipping options. During checkout you will select the option that best fits your needs. Materials: Solid beech wood frame; maple legs in natural or stained walnut; nylon web suspension; multidensity foam cushions; 100% worsted wool upholstery. Measurements:H 29" W 118" D 26"–56" Seat H 13.5"
Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of New Simplicity, a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany, and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus. Light and velvety to the touch, Morrisons Vitra Cork Stools (2004) are shaped from a massive yet lightweight piece of pressed agglomerate cork. He designed this family of stools, which also work well as side tables, to be made with unsealed cork so they would develop a beautiful patina over time. Made in Poland. Materials: Natural cork. Measurements:H 13" Diameter 12.25"
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.

Architect George Nelson, who was Herman Millers design director from 1945 to 1972, once said, Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair. And then he blew the doors off lighting design. While outfitting his office, Nelson discovered a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp that he coveted but found too expensive. He then recalled seeing a photo in the paper of Liberty ships being mothballed by having the decks covered with netting and then being sprayed with a self-webbing plastic, which got him thinking. And then, Whammo! Inspiration struck, and by the next night, Nelson had designed his first Bubble Lamp® (1952) by spinning a skeleton of steel wires on a turntable and shooting it with translucent plastic until it was covered in a smooth, washable film. When you put a light in it, it glowed. This is the authentic Bubble Lamp, produced in partnership with the George Nelson Foundation. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; E26 base; 150W max. UL Listed. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Plastic polymer; steel frame and stand. Measurements:H 12.5" Diameter 11" Cord L 6'
DWR Exclusive Regarded as the chair-maker of chair-makers, Hans J. Wegner designed more than 500 chairs during his prolific career, some of which were never produced. Wegners Wing Chair (1960) wasnt put into production until 2006, debuting at the IMM Cologne furniture fair, where it won a classic innovation award for its timeless appeal. With experience in cabinetry and architecture, Wegner had an intimate understanding of materials and joinery, plus a passion for creating chairs that deliver superb comfort. This one – named for its trademark wings – is no exception. One of his best-known pieces, Wing provides outstanding support for your entire upper body, with a roomy seat that lets you lounge in a variety of positions and finely hand-sewn upholstery. Made in Denmark. Materials: Solid beech frame; brushed stainless steel legs; molded cold foam padding; Rime (90% wool, 10% nylon), Clara (92% wool, 8% nylon), Maharam Divina Melange (100% wool) fabric or leather upholstery. Measurements:H 40.75" W 35.5" D 35.5" Seat H 15.5" Arm H 23.5"
Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. When Charles and Ray Eames designed the Eames Aluminum Management Chair (1958), they created a revolution in seating that has lost none of its edge. These chairs were originally developed as a special project for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. Moving away from the Eameses shell forms of the 1940s, the designers combined a newly affordable aluminum frame with a sling seat that subtly conforms to the body's shape. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet. Materials: Polished cast aluminum; leather. Measurements:H 5.5" W 4" D 3"
DWR Exclusive Owner of more than 400 patents, self-taught inventor Poul Cadovius constantly sought smarter solutions for everything from furniture to bus shelters to sailboats. In the mid-1940s, he devised an ingenious wall-mounted shelving system to save floor space: the Royal System (1948). After the systems introduction, Cadovius three-employee firm soon became the largest furniture manufacturer in Denmark, exporting to countries worldwide. In 2010, Cadovius gave the rights to produce the design to Danish company dk3. A year later, he died at the age of 99, but the project continued under the watchful eye of his widow, Evy, who made sure it stayed true to her husbands high standards. The most successful furniture collection in Denmark for three decades, the Royal System is back in production and available only at DWR. Use it in entryways, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms – wherever you want to lift space-stealing furniture off the floor and have more room for living. All pieces are finely crafted using time-honored techniques perfected over centuries by Danish woodworkers. Wall mounting not included with In-Home Delivery service. Made in Denmark. Shelves will flex very slightly over time but will still retain their structural integrity. We recommend a weight limit of 35 pounds per shelf to maintain a straight profile. Materials: Solid walnut or soaped oak rails; MDF with walnut or soaped oak veneer shelves; raw brass hangers (with walnut, meant to patina over time) or stainless steel hangers (with oak). Measurements:H 78.75" W 32.25" D 9.5"
Drawn to the translucency and versatility of bone china, Peter Bowles saw an opportunity to create something other than tableware with this time-honored material. The result is his Hector Collection (1992), which is beautifully crafted of hand-cast bone china. Creating these lights involves a highly skilled, labor-intensive process that begins with raw clay and ends with biscuit firing, glazing, glossing and firing again. When lit, these china shades have a translucent glow that allows for warm diffused light. Attention to detail is at the heart of every Original BTC collection, right down to the braided cord, which was designed by Peter and can be found on every light his company makes. The Hector Collection is UL Listed and suitable for contract use. Bulb (not included): 100W/GLS/E26. Made in England. Materials: Natural bone china shade and ceiling rose; braided, cotton-covered cord. Measurements:H 12" W 9.25", 4 lbs.
Spanish designer Jaime Hayon immersed himself as a teenager in both skateboard culture and graffiti art, which lie at the core of the bold and whimsical forms that he creates today. In 1997, after studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris, he joined Fabrica, a research center in Treviso, Italy, where he soon became the head of design. Hayon struck out on his own in 2003, first devising collections of ceramics and furniture, then delving into interior design. His work is featured in several museums and has received accolades from the likes of Time and Wallpaper . Réaction Poétique commemorates the 50-year anniversary of Le Corbusiers death, inspired by the organic shapes of his architecture and LEsprit Nouveau artwork. I wanted to create useful objects for the modern home such as trays and side tables, but with sculptural elements interplaying forms, light and shadow, says Hayon. These pieces can be used for everything from passing hors doeuvres to displaying knickknacks. Each is carved and finished by hand and includes a card of authenticity. Made in Italy. Materials: Solid ash wood; matte black stain. Measurements:H 22" Diameter 16"
Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. Charles and Ray Eames received a commission to design the interiors of three lobbies in the new Time & Life Building at Rockefeller Center in New York City. In addition to outfitting these spaces, this major project encompassed the development of the comfortably upholstered Lobby Chairs and a group of stools made out of solid walnut. Inspired by an African stool that stood in the living room of the Eames House, the lathe-turned Eames Stools (1960), which were also conceived by Ray to be used as small occasional tables, have distinctive individual profiles. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet. Materials: Solid walnut; varnish. Measurements:H 2.5" W 2.25" D 2.25"
The manufacturer of our Harvest Rug (2014) was founded with the vision of connecting people around the globe with a pool of Indian rug makers that it would grow and nurture. Starting with just two looms and nine artisans 30-plus years ago, the company now boasts over 200 looms and 40,000 artisans, making it one of the worlds leading rug manufacturers. Its committed to social responsibility as much as artistry, empowering artisans through innovative grass-roots training programs designed to help elevate them from mere wage earners to entrepreneurs. Harvest is a hand-woven natural jute rug with a pronounced diagonal weave durable enough to withstand years of heavy traffic. Made in India. Materials: 70% jute, 30% rayon chenille yarn. Measurements:Small L 8' W 5' Pile 0.5" Large L 10' W 8' Pile 0.5"
DWR Exclusive The versatile Nexus Cube (2008) serves as a stool, ottoman and side table. Concealed leveling glides give this clean, geometric form the appearance of floating, and the upholstery is tailored with double topstitched seams for resilience. Full-grain leather upholstery with a semi-aniline finish allows for easy cleanup in case of spills. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Kiln-dried hardwood corner-blocked frame; premium high-density, high-resiliency foam; leveling glides; full-grain, semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 19" W 19" D 19"
Impossibly thin Danish oiled oak combines with handwoven cane and luxurious aniline leather in the Colonial Chair and Footstool (1949) – Ole Wanschers most famous and enduring design. Defying gravity through masterful construction, with a compelling material contrast, its name honors the Danish designers fascination with English furnishings from the 1700s. A slightly more conservative strand of Danish modern than we see from masters like Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner, Wanschers work reflects his scholarly nature: He served as professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture (his alma mater) from 1955 to 1973. Designed in 1949, the Colonial wasnt put into production until the mid-1950s, when Wanscher stumbled on a collaboration with PJ Furniture through Mobilia magazine editor, Gunnar Bratvold. (Carl Hansen & Søn acquired the right to produce the Colonial Chair and Footstool in 2012.) Wanscher gained a good deal of notoriety in Denmark in the 50s and 60s. In 1958, the Danish newspaper Politiken declared, Owning a Wanscher chair is an adventure every day, and will be so even several hundred years from now, for this is how long it lasts. Made in Denmark. Materials: Danish oiled oak; handwoven cane; full-grain, pure aniline, naked leather; polydown cushion filling (50% down, 50% foam). Measurements:Chair: H 35.5" W 25.75" D 27" Seat H 18" Arm H 24.5"
Born in Copenhagen in 1923, Nanna Ditzel was a groundbreaking modernist – her work spanned all areas of design. Trained as a cabinetmaker, she opened a studio with her husband Jørgen in 1946, designing furniture, ceramics, jewelry and textiles. Ditzels Hallingdal fabric, designed in 1965, has been in continuous production since, becoming one of Kvadrats best-selling products. Her Dennie Chair (1956), originally designed for Fritz Hansen, was a fixture in the Ditzel household but was never produced on a large scale. Nanna and Jørgens daughter, Dennie (the chairs namesake), approached Onecollection about bringing this comfortable and cozy – yet minimal – design back into production. Compactly scaled with an elegant splay-leg base in chromed steel, it suits a living room, den or kids room – Dennie remembers being read books as a child from this body holding lounge chair. This nearly lost midcentury classic chair is upholstered, of course, in Ditzels Hallingdal fabric. This is the authentic Dennie Chair by Onecollection. Made in Denmark. Materials: Plywood shell with Pantera foam; polyester foam top layer; chromed steel; Kvadrat Hallingdal fabric (70% wool, 30% viscose). Measurements:H 35.5" W 32.25" D 31.5" Seat H 14.5"
Danish designer Hans J. Wegner preferred to work in solid wood, but occasionally he explored the use of bent plywood, and for that we are very thankful. Sometimes called the smiling chair, his Shell Chair (1963) achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like seat and the arching curves of its tapered legs. And while it stands on only three legs, this chair has an absolute stability that could only be achieved by someone with Wegners expertise in cabinetmaking and architecture. Wegners belief that a chair should be beautiful from all sides and angles is especially evident with his Shell Chair. This comfortable masterpiece is a marvel of grace and beauty. This is the authentic Shell Chair produced by Carl Hansen & Søn. Made in Denmark. Materials: Form-pressed walnut veneer or form-pressed beech veneer with lacquer finish; molded cold foam seat and back; cowhide, leather, Kvadrat Hallingdal fabric (70% wool, 30% viscose) or Maharam Campaign fabric upholstery.

Before the Swan Sofa (1958), Arne Jacobsen’s architecture and designs were shaped by an assumption of materials’ natural ways of resisting. In other words, he could make them go only so far in becoming the structures he desired. With new technologies, however, the old rules no longer applied, and he was able to shape fluid curves and single-piece molded shells. The Swan Sofa is now made from polyurethane foam, but at the time, Jacobsen used Styropore® to create its continuous shape. Designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, for which Jacobsen was the architect. A single upholsterer hand-sews the fabric onto the frame of Swan. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland. Materials: Fiberglass-reinforced, polyurethane foam shell; injection-molded aluminum base; full-grain leather or fabric upholstery. Fame: FameÂ® by Gabriel fabric (95% wool, 5% polyamide). Milani: Milani fabric (70% viscose, 30% linen). Tonus: Maharam Tonus by KvadratÂ® fabric (90% wool, 10% HelancaÂ®). Classic: Full-grain leather top-coated for durability.

DWR Exclusive Furniture that is too obviously designed is very interesting, said designer Milo Baughman, but too often belongs only in museums. A firm believer that good design can have a positive influence in our lives, Baughman knew how to design sophisticated, sexy chairs – even when it came to a Recliner (1966). Recognized as one of the originators of the California modern movement, Baughman began his career as a custom furniture designer, and in 1953 he joined forces with Thayer Coggin, the founder of the North Carolina company that is still the exclusive manufacturer of Baughmans work. For five decades, Baughman designed clean, sophisticated and easy-to-live-with furniture, and we worked closely with Thayer Coggin to bring this Recliner back into production. Baughmans work was included in High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1985. In 1987, he was inducted into the Furniture Design Hall of Fame. Made in U.S.A. Opens with a slight seated push. Enjoy three stages of comfort: from upright to feet up to full recline. Materials: Solid walnut; matrix webbing; interior plywood; foam and fiber cushions: fabric or leather upholstery. Measurements:H 41.5" W 27.5" D 32"–64" Seat H 16.5" Arm H 23"

Includes a cushion secured with leather straps. Made in Denmark. Materials: FSC-certified raw oak; leather-strap wool-blend cushion (93% wool, 7% polyamide). Measurements:H 17.75" W 48.75" D 15"
DWR Exclusive As a theater and dance student at the University of West Virginia, Ted Boerner developed an intuitive sense of the body and the space it occupies – an awareness that now lends his furniture its genial angles and careful proportions. He attended NYU for grad school and began his career as a set and costume designer. Propping scenes and imagining the things that characters would surround themselves with made me think about how important furniture is to people, says the designer. Modern sofas often claim minimalist appeal, but few can also tout the comfort of the Theatre Collection (2001). Designed to accommodate the human body with studied proportions and simple geometry, Theatres comfort stems from its form rather than excessive layers of stuffing. With a gently angled backrest, full seat depth and elevated armrests, Boerners signature artisanal details are evident throughout. A gleaming chromed steel base runs the entire depth of the design, and welted seams lend strength and definition to the upholstery. Ships with legs unattached to save on packing materials. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Kiln-dried hardwood corner-blocked frame; unidirectional web suspension; high-density, high-resiliency foam cushions with Dacron® wrap; chrome-plated steel base; fabric or leather upholstery.
