Design Within Reach Living Room Furniture
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. 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), Calacatta, Nero Marquina or Verde Alpi (green with black and white veining). Wood veneer: MDF with cathedral-grain cherry, ebonized walnut, oak, walnut or Pau Ferro rosewood veneer. Laminate: MDF with laminate. Measurements:H 15.25" W 42.25" D 27.5"
DWR Exclusive To create his Como Collection (2007), Italian designer Giorgio Soressi enlisted one of the most widely respected companies in Italy. Located near Lake Como, this family-run business is still producing best-in-class sofas and chairs for many prestigious retailers to this day, blending design, research, cutting-edge technologies and artisanal techniques. The elegant and extremely well-constructed Como Collection is built with solid steel frames and cast-aluminum legs. Contrasting that heft and stability are cushions that scream, Youve got to sit here! with their goose feather filling and variable-density foam thats firmer in front for support. One Como Throw Pillow included. Made in Italy. Materials: Steel frame; polished cast-aluminum legs; spring suspension with elastic webbing; polyurethane foam seat cushions with natural goose feather filling; Piumafil® back cushions; fabric or Kalahari full-grain, semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 27.25" W 44.25" D 79.5" Seat H 15.5"
With his iconic seating collection, Harry Bertoia transformed industrial wire rods into a new furniture form. The events that made this work possible began a decade earlier at Cranbrook Academy of Art, when Bertoia met Florence Knoll (then Florence Schust). Years later, the Italian-born designer was invited to work for Florence and her husband, Hans Knoll. Bertoia was given the freedom to work on whatever suited him, without being held to a strict design agenda, and the result of this arrangement was the Bertoia Seating Collection (1952). These extremely strong yet airy chairs are sculpted out of steel rods with a delicate filigreed appearance. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and his chairs were an extension of that work. If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture, said Bertoia. Space passes through them. After designing his seating collection, Bertoia returned to focusing mostly on sculpture. This is an authentic Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair produced by Knoll, with the Knoll logo stamped into its base. Seat pad is secured with metal snaps. Chair made in Italy; seat pad made in U.S.A. Materials: Welded steel rods; polished chrome finish with chrome connections or bonded Rilsan® finish with stainless steel connections; vinyl seat pad (65% polyester, 35% rayon). Measurements:H 30" W 33.5" D 28.25" Seat H 16.5"
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"
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.

Whether working with the designers at Herman Miller or his Manhattan studio team, George Nelson knew how to bring out the best in people by encouraging them to experiment and play. George Mulhauser arrived fresh from Pratt with a portfolio filled with sketches, one of which evolved into the Coconut Chair (1955) under Nelsons tutelage. Named for its shell-fragment shape that invites lounging in a variety of positions, Coconut is clever in how it integrates seat, back and arms into one simple form. This is the authentic Coconut Chair by Herman Miller. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller, Inc. Made in Germany. Materials: Molded plastic shell; foam rubber cushion; chromed steel; full-grain, semi-aniline leather upholstery; plastic glides. Measurements:H 33" W 40" D 34"

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'
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"
The process of bringing the Nelson Thin Edge Bed (1954) back into production began at the Herman Miller Archives, where engineers carefully studied vintage pieces and original drawings. In keeping with Nelsons vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes – which werent commonly available in the 1950s – in addition to the original twin and full. Solid ash slats have replaced springs to accommodate an invention that also didnt exist in Nelsons day: memory-foam mattresses. Finishes have been updated to reflect new technologies and the aesthetic preferences of todays consumer: Walnut replaces stained ash, and white ash replaces the original birch. The result is unmistakably Nelson – iconic designs of exceptional simplicity and clarity. This is the authentic Nelson Thin Edge Bed by Herman Miller. Made in Malaysia. Twin, full and queen platforms ship fully assembled. King and Cal. king platforms ship as two halves. Materials: Solid walnut or white ash frame; solid ash slats; walnut or white ash veneer headboard with or without natural woven cane panel; stainless steel headboard support with satin chrome finish; solid walnut or white ash legs or stainless steel H-frame legs with satin chrome finish. Measurements:Twin H 35" W 40.25" D 84.5" Platform H 13.25"
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.
Designer and sculptor Brian Alexander has always been fascinated by the way people interact with their environments and the objects around them. By studying people’s behavior, he gets a sense of what they find intuitive, which he then works into his creations. “I try to slip people little affirmations through my designs, things they can identify or connect with on a very basic level,” he explains. “You can see it in their faces, the reactions they have when something flows with them rather than against them.” A holder of 20-plus patents for office furniture and accessories, Alexander clearly knows his way around the workplace and what people need to be comfortable and productive in it. His Renew Desk (2013) lets you go from sitting to standing and back again so you can keep moving throughout the workday – vital to improving energy and focus and to lowering health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Its motorized lift operates easily with an intuitive lever: pull up to raise, push down to lower. Beyond adjustability, Renew also sports ample legroom and beveled edges for eliminating bumps and bruises, and concealed screw heads for a sleek finish. Simple assembly required. Backed by a two-year manufacturer's warranty. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Ash veneer, walnut veneer or white laminate over MDF top; electric motor; die-cast aluminum legs; nonslip rubber feet. Measurements:H 27"–46" W 60" D 30"
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. Measurements:H 29.25" W 36.25" D 32.75" Seat H 14"
DWR Exclusive The father-and-son team of Jesús and Jon Gasca combined right angles with sensuous curves to create their Nube Armchair (2008). With its startlingly simple and architectural structure, stunning back view and cozy nest-like seat, this is a chair thats full of surprises. Nube is available upholstered in solid-colored fabric (one color for the angular parts, another color for the curved), patterned fabric and leather, offering several options suitable for commercial and residential applications. It was honored with a Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award for furniture in 2008. Design Within Reach is proud to be the exclusive retailer of Stua products in the U.S. Made in Spain.

DWR Exclusive Based in Denmark, Softline has been designing and producing unique, multifunctional furniture since 1979. Inspired by what they explain simply as the joy of living, Softline has created elegant, colorful and playful products for homes and businesses worldwide. When designing the Drum Pouf (2009), the goal was to create a functional, comfortable piece of furniture that could work in a variety of applications. Serving as a seat or ottoman, the comfortable Drum Pouf is easy to move around as required. The Drum cover is removable for cleaning. Made in Denmark. Add the optional Drum Pouf Tray (sold separately), and the Drum is transformed into a table. For parties, this removable Tray can also be used for serving. Materials: Foam; felt upholstery (70% wool, 25% polyamide, 3% acrylic, 2% polyester). Measurements:H 15.75" (17.25" with tray) Diameter 17.75"
The Eames® Aluminum Group Collection (1958) began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a home they were designing for industrialist J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. The request was for leisure chairs light enough to move from indoors to out and strong enough to withstand the elements. At the time, the Eameses were exploring ways to use aluminum, which had been strengthened, refined and made more affordable since WWII. They constructed a lightweight die-cast frame for the project, then wrapped it in a sling – a sitting pocket that subtly conforms to the bodys shape. The result was a completely new type of seat and a departure from the idea of a chair as solid shell. While the original concept was for outdoor seating, the Eameses quickly recognized its possibilities for indoor use. This collection has been in continuous production by Herman Miller since 1958. Constructed of 61% recycled materials, its also 88% recyclable at the end of its useful life. Backed by a 12-year manufacturers warranty. This is an authentic Eames chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Features: 360-degree swivel base; tilt mechanism that allows up to 30 degrees of recline; padded headrest; floor glides that work on both carpeted and hardwood floors. Pair this chair with the optional Ottoman (sold separately) and put your feet up in style. Materials: Four-star polished or powder-coated die-cast aluminum base and frame with tubular steel column; Maharam Messenger fabric (78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester, 7% nylon) or Spinneybeck® Vicenza leather upholstery. Measurements:H 38.75" W 25.75" D 32.25" Seat H 14.5"
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"
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"
After being recruited by none other than Charles Eames to become director of design for the Herman Miller textile division in 1952, Alexander Girard was given the freedom to experiment with vibrant hues and patterns in his work. His striking Hexagonal Table (1967) pays homage to the hexagon, a shape that he experimented with in multiple forms, from textiles and graphics to accessories and furnishings. This striking polished aluminum table combines a hexagonal top inscribed with 200-plus triangles for a bright jewel-like look with flowing splayed legs for stability. Use it alone as a side table, or place several together to create a host of configurations. This is the authentic Girard Hexagonal Table by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Polished die-cast aluminum top and legs; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 16.5" W 17.75" D 17.75"
DWR Exclusive Milo Baughman believed that good design is enduring design, and his Goodland Sofa Collection (1968) beautifully demonstrates this idea. Named for the Kansas town where he was born, Goodland reflects the style and ease for which Baughman is known. This collection began as a sofa designed for his own home – his daughter still has the original – which he later expanded upon and launched for retail customers. Goodland pieces are elegantly proportioned with comfortable cushions that have just the right give and thin arms that help maximize the seating area. Made in U.S.A.. Materials: Kiln-dried solid maple frame; matrix webbing suspension; foam seat cushions wrapped in poly-blend down; back cushions filled with trillium fibers from recycled ; polished stainless steel, walnut or oxidized bronze-plated steel base; fabric or leather upholstery.

Cini Boeri's approach to design is all about flexibility and mobility. Her generously scaled CB Lounge Collection (2008) allows users to sit how they like: Deep, wide seats and substantial arms create an invitation to lounge any which way. Locking casters on the back legs of the Lounge Chair and Sofa further the flexibility of these pieces. Boeri's partnership with Knoll dates back to the 1970s, when she designed showrooms for the company in France, Germany, Italy and Los Angeles. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A. Foam seat and back cushions are highly resilient and will stand up to years of multidirectional lounging.

The iconic LCM (1946) began as an experiment in the Eameses apartment, where they were molding plywood in what they called the Kazam! Machine. The machine pressed thin sheets of wood veneer against a heated membrane that was inflated by a bicycle pump. Humble beginnings for what would become one of the worlds most widely recognized and highly coveted chairs. Low-slung, with an expertly crafted molded seat and back (no bike pumps are used today), this chair cradles you in a comfortable position. Its form relates directly to the human body and holds no secrets as to how it succeeds technically. The slender rod base provides superior strength, while rubber shock mounts buffer against jarring movement. This original is an authentic product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. LCM stands for lounge chair with metal legs. Materials: Molded five-ply seat and back; walnut, white ash or santos palisander wood veneer, ebony-stained ash veneer or red-stained ash veneer; chromed-steel or black powder-coated legs and back brace; rubber shock mounts; self-leveling nylon glides. Measurements:H 26.5" W 22" D 24.5" Seat H 15.5"
Following his apprenticeship with the legendary Constantin Brancusi, sculptor Isamu Noguchi began to experiment in environmental design, theatrical sets – he was the only designer that choreographer Martha Graham would work with – and, eventually, product design. He created his first furniture prototypes for Herman Miller in 1942 and went on to work with companies such as Steuben and Zenith. The Noguchi Table (1948) conceals nothing, revealing everything about the nature of simplicity. Two smoothly shaped pieces of solid wood interlock to form a tripod that supports a thick glass tabletop. The base is available in black, walnut, natural cherry and white ash, the latter of which is finished with a process that arrests the wood in its freshly cut state, resulting in a creamy white color that will not turn yellow over time. This is the authentic Noguchi Table by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. The configuration of this table is a registered trademark. To distinguish the real Noguchi table from the cheap knockoffs, Herman Miller has etched Noguchis signature on the longest edge of the glass top and on a medallion on the underside of the base. Materials: Solid wood base in Noguchi black, walnut, natural cherry or white ash; 0.75" thick glass. Measurements:H 15.75" W 50" D 36"
A refreshing variant of the LCW (1946), the Upholstered LCW sports Kvadrat Divina fabric on its front side. Hailed by Time magazine as the Best Design of the 20th Century, this iconic chair began as an experiment in the Eameses apartment, where they were molding plywood in what they called the Kazam! Machine. The machine pressed thin sheets of wood veneer against a heated membrane that was inflated by a bicycle pump. Humble beginnings for what would become one of the worlds most widely recognized and highly coveted chairs.

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 Shortly before Finn Juhl became a world-renowned name, he was a self-taught furniture designer and trained architect who had just opened his own office. Working in collaboration with master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder, the pair was the buzz of the 1945 Cabinetmakers Guild exhibition with their expressive, sculptural pieces. One such item was the Model 45 Armchair (1945), which broke from tradition by freeing the upholstered areas from the wood frame. With the Model 45, Juhl refined the type of easy chair that he had been working on for many years; creating the type of elegant, tantalizing expression for which this designer is still without rival. This is the authentic Model 45 Chair by Onecollection. Made in Denmark. Finn Juhl made his U.S. debut in 1951, at the Good Design exhibit in Chicago and at MoMA in New York. When Juhl was 39, he was the architect appointed to represent Denmark in creating the interior of a meeting hall at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Materials: Solid walnut frame; leather upholstery. Measurements:H 35" W 26" D 29" Seat H 16.5"
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 Eames Walnut Stool (1960) was originally designed for the lobby and executive suites of the Time-Life Building at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Ray took the lead on design, drawing on her sculpture training. Working with blocks of solid walnut, the Eameses used a lathe to sculpt pleasing profiles, similarly to how one would be used to make turned legs for chairs and tables. After experimenting with several ideas, the duo chose three shapes for the Time-Life lobby to accompany the Eames Executive Chair and large murals by Josef Albers and Fritz Glarner. Crafting each for use as a table or seat – finding just the right curve for the top was crucial to its success – the Eameses were so fond of the design that they used it throughout their Pacific Palisades home. This is the authentic Eames Walnut Stool by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Flip it: Turn the stool over and youll discover that both ends are concave. Which side is the top is up to you. Materials: Solid walnut. Measurements:H 15" Top Diameter 13.5" Bottom Diameter 11"
For George Nelson, design wasnt about things; it was about identifying problems and providing sensible solutions. The art of reduction was one of the many areas in which Nelson excelled, and he always challenged himself to do much more with much less. That approach led to the simple yet sleek design of the Nelson Daybed (1950), which he originally designed for his own home in 1941. For nearly a decade, he continued to streamline the daybed, and when he was finally satisfied, it became part of the Herman Miller collection in 1950. The next chapter for this timeless piece begins with you. Made in Malaysia. Materials: Solid walnut or white ash frame; solid walnut or white ash legs or stainless steel hairpin legs with satin chrome finish; steel springs; high-density foam cushion. Measurements:H 15.25" W 75" D 33"
With his iconic seating collection, Harry Bertoia transformed industrial wire rods into a new furniture form. The events that made this work possible began a decade earlier at Cranbrook Academy of Art, when Bertoia met Florence Knoll (then Florence Schust). Years later, the Italian-born designer was invited to work for Florence and her husband, Hans Knoll. Bertoia was given the freedom to work on whatever suited him, without being held to a strict design agenda, and the result of this arrangement was the Bertoia Seating Collection (1952). Featuring a delicate filigreed appearance thats supremely strong, these airy seats are sculpted out of steel rods. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and these chairs were an extension of that work. If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture, said Bertoia. Space passes through them. After designing his seating collection, Bertoia returned to focusing mostly on sculpture. This is the authentic Bertoia Chair produced by Knoll. The Knoll logo is stamped into its base. Made in Italy. The White frame can be used outdoors with limited exposure to the elements. The Chrome frame is not for outdoor use.
