DWR Exclusive It's no mistake that the Midcentury Sunshade (1955) evokes the minimalist aesthetic of Southern California modern in the 1950s: It was developed by Brown Jordan for the Case Study houses. The shade's sculptural form is dictated by its versatile functionality. Its small footprint allows for flexible placement, and the rotating shade is easy to adjust as the sun moves across the sky or whenever you change seats or switch activities. To rotate the Sunshade from horizontal to vertical, simply loosen and retighten the handle at the top of the pole. Contract quality, the Midcentury Sunshade works well in multiples to shade individual lounge chairs or dining tables. The Mobile Stand (sold separately) is made from concrete-filled aluminum with Tuff-WheelsTM for easy maneuverability. Robert Brown and Hubert Jordan, who started their California-based company in 1945, have since helped to define the shape of modern outdoor leisure furniture and accessories. A PVC insert in the hole of the base will need to be removed prior to installation. Made in Mexico. Stand sold separately. Materials: Aluminum frame; Versatex® vinyl shade; stainless steel hardware. STATIONARY STAND (optional), galvanized steel. MOBILE STAND (optional), concrete-filled aluminum with Tuff-Wheel extension.

Philippe Starck jump-started his career by designing two nightclub interiors in Paris in the 1970s. The success of the clubs won the attention of President Francois Mitterand, who asked Starck to refurbish one of the private apartments in the Elysee Palace. Two years later, Starck designed the interior of the Café Costes, Paris, and was on his way to becoming a design celebrity. In quick succession, he created elegant interiors for the Royalton and Paramount hotels in New York, the Delano in Miami and the Mondrian in Los Angeles. He also began to produce chairs, lamps, motorbikes and boats. Starck's approach to design is subversive, intelligent and always interesting. His objects surprise and delight even as they transgress boundaries and subvert expectations. For his Ktribe Pendant (2005), Starck used a special polycarbonate, and when the lamp is lit, the shade reveals a diffuser hidden inside. When the lamp is off, the internal diffuser is invisible. Bulb (not included): halogen 150W BT15 Med Base. UL Listed. Made in Italy by Flos. Unique shade creates an X-ray effect when lit. Materials: Polycarbonate. Measurements:H 12" Diameter 15.75" Cord L 180", 5.4 lbs.
Inspired by the graceful flow of a manta ray through the ocean, Tuuci Manta (2001) offers you protection from the elements without obstructing the view. Dougan Clarke, a consummate sailor who spent over a decade working with sails, rigging and boat design, knows what will stand up to sun, rain, salt and wind, and he designs his shades accordingly. Manta is easy to use and maintain but constructed of replaceable marine-grade components to ensure a lifetime of serviceability. It features a clever cam cleat and pulley system to raise and lower the shade with ease. I sought to redefine what was previously known as an umbrella, says Clarke. The resulting shade sculptures embody both form and function. As with other shades, keep these in closed position during storms and when not in use. DWR is not responsible for accidents or damage caused by misuse or weather. Commercial quality. Made in U.S.A. Shade color: Natural. Looking for a shade in another color?

Leave it to designer Philippe Starck to find inspiration in the furniture of Versailles when creating a chair for a Chinese restaurant in Paris. The Kong Barstool (2002) is handcrafted in Pennsylvania using the same 77-step process Emeco first developed for its Navy Chair. While the shape of Kong recalls more delicate French designs, the manufacturing of this chair gives it an ability to stand up to even the most unruly of patrons. A proprietary heat treatment makes the aluminum three times stronger than steel, and all Emeco chairs and stools are tested to withstand 1,700 pounds of weight (which is good to know in case that restaurant in Paris is very popular). Available with two arms or one left arm or one right arm (right and left is from the perspective of the person sitting in the barstool). For contract and residential use. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Anodized aluminum; clear plastic glides. Measurements:H 46.5" W 17.5" D 20" Seat H 30" Arm H 37"
Protect yourself from elements but keep your view with the Tuuci Hexagon (2000), which is more horizontal than traditional dome-shaped umbrellas. Dougan Clarke, a consummate sailor who spent over a decade working with sails, rigging and boat design, knows what will stand up to sun, rain, salt and wind, and he designs his shades accordingly. Hexagon is easy to use and maintain but constructed of replaceable marine-grade components to ensure a lifetime of serviceability. It features a clever cam cleat and pulley system to raise and lower the shade with ease. I sought to redefine what was previously known as an umbrella, says Clarke.

DWR Exclusive Running into legendary designer Jens Risom in the halls at DWR headquarters was one of the many pleasures of working here. We took great pride in collaborating with him to bring the Risom Desk (2012) – the little one, as he called it – back into production in North America. Originally designed in 1968 for his own home in New Canaan, Conn., this small-space solution is really a writing surface, said Risom. Lets just call it a desk in quotations. Crafted of solid American walnut or oak and rich black or chocolate leather, its a handsome piece of decoration at which you sit, at which you study, at which you read books... if people do that anymore. The drawer interior has a removable solid wooden tray for desk supplies. Ships fully assembled. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid North American walnut or oak; black or chocolate leather with Crypton® protective finish. Measurements:H 29" W 42" D 22"
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 that's made tomorrow ." The duo originally designed their molded chair in metal and entered it as a prototype in MoMA's 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. DFSW stands for dining-height fiberglass side chair with wood base. Made of 99% recyclable materials and covered by Herman Miller's take-back program for environmentally sound recycling (should you ever wish to part with this chair). Materials: Fiberglass-reinforced plastic seat; maple, walnut, ebony-stained ash or white ash dowels; black or white powder-coated wire. 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.

The Etch Candleholder (2010) is digitally manufactured via an industrial process used to produce electronics such as circuit boards. The advanced method allows intricate patterns to be cut – or etched – directly into the metal. With its geodesic structure, one candleholder will throw a mass of interesting shadows in all directions, and multiple candleholders can be locked together to create a larger centerpiece. Born in Tunisia and raised in England, designer Tom Dixon has a reputation that frequently precedes him. His bad boy mystique – Dixon dropped out of art school following a motorcycle accident and spent time playing bass in a rock band – is intriguing when juxtaposed with his unmistakable talent and emergence as one of Englands most influential designers. Candle not included. Made in China. Materials: Laser-cut brass, stainless steel or black powder-coated stainless steel. Measurements:Diameter: 4.75"
Cini Boeris 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. Casters on the base of the ottoman allow it to be rotated, shifted and scooted, as desired. Boeris 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 is highly resilient and can be used to place beverages or other items.

Born in Denmark, Morten Gøttler opened his own drawing office in 1975 and became a Member of Danish Designers (MDD), a Copenhagen-based multidisciplinary association of professional designers, in 1981. Gøttler is known for his work in wood, which is characterized by a simple, airy look and exquisite feel. His Cuba Lounge Chair (1997) is one such piece, with its clean and smooth profile and hand-woven cotton straps that conform to the body. As sturdy as it is alluring from all sides, the chair features a rugged frame assembled with spigot joints and held together by heavy-duty brass hinge mechanisms. This light and flexible chair will be equally at home in the modern living room, an open kitchen or similar setting, and it folds for easy storage when not in use. Made in Denmark.

Bonnie Edelmans latest series was born out of experimentation during a family vacation in Uruguay several years ago. While driving through the countryside, she mistakenly captured an out-of-focus image. In this digital age, she was tempted to erase her error immediately but held off for some reason. Weeks later, she came across the image again and fell in love with its abstract tranquil character and vibrant hues. Since then, shes captured others in a similar vein from shorelines, boats and airplanes, resulting in the aptly named Scapes (Land, Sea and Sky), her latest grand body of work. According to Edelman, embracing this unique style has given her a brand-new perspective on the world, allowing her to envision it in blurs of color rather than restrictive details. Turks Water (2006), captured in the Turks and Caicos Islands, is available in three sizes. This archival-quality chromogenic print is face-mounted on quarter-inch-thick Plexiglas, then beautifully finished with flame-polished edges and acid-free Sintra foam backing. Each piece is signed and numbered. Materials: Archival-quality chromogenic print; Plexiglas; Sintra foam backing. Measurements:Small: H 40" W 40" Medium: H 48" W 48" Large: H 60" W 60"
Rather than develop his career within a single design discipline – be it industrial, furniture, interior, lighting or architectural design – Michele De Lucchi chose to move freely among them all, creating door pulls for Valli Colombo, laptops for Olivetti and tape dispensers for Pelikan while designing banks in Germany and apartment buildings in Japan. His Tolomeo Lamp (1987), designed in collaboration with Artemides R&D department head Giancarlo Fassina, was honored with the Compasso dOro Award in 1989, earning worldwide recognition for its perfect marriage of design and engineering. Since then, the Tolomeo Collection has grown to include an assortment of sizes and styles. Able to be positioned anywhere indirect or direct lighting is needed, the Clip Spot is suitable for shelf, pipe or table mounting. The on-off switch is incorporated in the lamp holder, and the aluminum diffuser swivels 360 degrees. Bulb (not included): incandescent 100W/E26/A19. UL Listed. Made in Hungary. Materials: Extruded die-cast aluminum with high-polished finish; matte aluminum diffuser; steel clip. Measurements:H 9" W 7" Cord L 60", 1.5 lbs.
DWR Exclusive The Kayu Teak Bench (2009) is a combination of straightforward design and robust natural wood.

In 1999, Norman Cherner's sons, Benjamin and Thomas, honored the requests of various architects and began bringing their father's Cherner Chair back into production. The success of the Chair inspired Benjamin – a New York-based architect and multidisciplinary designer – to create the Cherner Table (2003). Echoing the curved plywood lines of the Chair, the Cherner Table stands on molded plywood legs. Lightweight but strong, it's crafted of a solid core of multi-ply beech wood, overlaid with an American walnut veneer. This is the authentic Cherner Table produced by the Cherner Chair Company. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Molded beech wood plywood; walnut veneer. Measurements:72" Table: H 29.5" W 72" D 34"

Eero Saarinen called himself a “form giver,” and everything he designed – from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to his Womb Chair to his Pedestal Table – had a strong sculptural quality. “The underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world,” said Saarinen. In a 1956 cover story in Time magazine, he announced that he was designing a collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.” Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table Collection, followed by his Tulip Chair Collection (1956), both of which feature cast-aluminum bases inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. The seat swivels for easy entrance to or exit from a table. Each chair is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinen’s signature. This is the authentic Tulip Collection produced by Knoll. Made in Italy. The Tulip Collection is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified®. Materials: Molded fiberglass seat shell; cast-aluminum base with black or white RilsanÂ®-coated finish.

The Turbine Clock (1957) is one of more than 150 clocks designed by George Nelson Associates for the Howard Miller Clock Company, which sold them from 1949 into the 1980s. Nelson Associates, first launched as a studio by George Nelson in 1947 in New York City, employed some of the most celebrated designers of the time, including Irving Harper, Don Ervin and Charles Pollock, all of whom contributed to the clocks. Until its closure in the mid-1980s, the company designed a range of products for many clients, including Herman Miller, Inc., which was established in 1923 by Howard Miller’s brother-in-law, D.J. De Pree. A bit of family history: De Pree also founded the Herman Miller Clock Company in 1926 but turned it over in 1937 to Howard, who renamed it. As for the identity of Herman Miller, he was Howard’s father and De Pree’s father-in-law. The Miller companies are not affiliated but stand across the street from one another in Zeeland, Michigan. Turbine was designed by Harper and Lucia DeRespinis. It appeared in the original Miller brochure as Model 2240. This is an authentic Nelson Clock, produced by Vitra Design Museum. Uses one AA battery (included). Made in Poland. Materials: Brass; aluminum; lacquered metal; high-grade quartz clockwork. Measurements:Diameter 30.25" D 3", 18 lbs.
Three years after designing his iconic Wassily Chair, which is believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, Marcel Breuer created the Cesca Chair (1928). Named in tribute to his daughter Francesca, the simple design pairs the industrial age aesthetic of tubular steel with leather upholstery. This chair is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Breuers signature. Cesca chairs are manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in USA. The Cesca is used in homes and restaurants worldwide, and an original 1928 chair is included in MoMAs permanent collection. Its among the 10 most important chairs of the 20th century, said Cara McCarty, associate curator, department of architecture and design at MoMA.

Eschewing the traditional, the Teak Bathroom Mat (1998) is constructed of – you guessed it – solid teak. Designed by architect Mogens Holmriis, recognized for his teak chairs and tables, this mat provides a refreshing alternative to other varieties. It comes fully assembled with stainless steel hardware for durability and is fitted with two full-length natural rubber feet that prevent slippage and protect tile floors from marring. Like all teak products, it will develop a rich, silvery patina over time, or it can be treated with teak oil to maintain its original luster.

DWR Exclusive Son of a draftsman and a homemaker, Bernard-Albin Gras was born in Saint-Raphaël, France, in 1886. He would become an engineer and tireless inventor who registered dozens of patents, including one for Lampe Gras (1921). A product of Gras passion to improve working conditions for hundreds of laborers in ordinary machine shops, research laboratories and design studios in the 1920s, this mobile lighting solution is capable of meeting the needs of many different users. The architect Le Corbusier seized upon the design, which satisfied the demands of his ideology about the perfect object-tool: a form reduced to its pure function, free of superfluous ornament. Corbu furnished his design offices and architectural projects with Lampes Gras, and other early adopters included Eileen Gray, Man Ray and Robert Mallet-Stevens. The cast steel frames are made without screws or welded joints; all parts contribute to utmost effectiveness of the whole. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; E12 base; 40W max. Made in China. Materials: Cast steel body; chrome finish or matte black or white powder-coated finish; Bakelite sphere motion component. Measurements:H 22.5"–28.75" Shade Diameter 8.25" Cord L 77"
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. 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 or powder-coated steel base; fabric or leather upholstery. Measurements:H 18" W 47" D 30"
Presenting the Nine-0 Collection by Ettore Sottsass. The designer, who helped found the Memphis Group and created the iconic Olivetti Valentine typewriter, finished his seating collection for Emeco shortly before his death on December 31, 2007. The name “Nine-0” refers to the age Sottsass was when he designed the collection, which is handcrafted in Pennsylvania using the same 77-step process that Emeco first developed for its 1006 Navy® Chair. Sottsass was one of the first designers to use the 1006 Navy in residential applications, and the Nine-0 is his reinterpretation of that classic chair. The Nine-0, like all Emeco seating, is crafted of 80% recycled aluminum and has an estimated lifespan of 150 years. Stacks up to six high. Nine-0 chairs and stools contribute to LEED credit #4.2 Recycled Content (and credit #5.1 if shipped within 500 miles of Hanover, Pennsylvania). Backed by a seven-year manufacturer’s warranty. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Brushed anodized aluminum (80% recycled); polyurethane seat. Measurements:H 31.5" W 20.25" D 22.25" Seat H 18.5"
A refreshing variant of the LCM (1946), the Upholstered LCM sports Kvadrat Divina fabric on its front side. 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. 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 birch veneer; Maharam Divina by Kvadrat (100% wool); chromed-steel or black powder-coated legs and back brace; rubber shock mounts; self-leveling nylon glides.

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 Six-Drawer Dresser has side panels that rest off the floor and full-extension handle-free drawers with slots for easy opening at the top. 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. Measurements:H 29" W 63.5" D 19"
Charles and Ray Eames had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to fulfill the practical needs of ordinary people and bring greater pleasure to our lives. Their Soft Pad Collection (1969) of luxuriously padded chairs evolved from their Aluminum Group Collection, which began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a house they were designing for J. Irwin Miller. With the addition of plush seat cushions, the Soft Pad Collection retains the style of the earlier one but adds significant comfort. We have to take pleasure seriously, said Charles Eames. No matter what the Eameses did, they did it with passion and imagination, and in the process, they changed lives.

When they designed the interior of St. Peters Church in New York City, Lella and Massimo Vignelli applied their signature approach of paring away everything but the essentials to arrive at the simplest possible solution. That simplicity is most evident in the design of the altar, which is made of three massive blocks of laminated wood. When asked why the altar is so thick, Lella said, Its Gods table. It has to have some power! The design became a motif throughout the churchs interior, applied to benches and even pews. The pleasing proportions of the altar can also be found in the Vignelli Bench (2005), which Lella and Massimo created for use in their own home. Consistent wall thickness and stress-free outer corners give the bench exceptional durability, making it suitable for residential or commercial use, indoors or out. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Rotational-molded polyethylene. Measurements:H 18.25" W 71.75" D 18.25"
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.

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.

Imagine, says Philippe Starck, a guy who takes a humble broom and starts to clean the workshop, and with this dust he makes new magic. The dust that Starck refers to is reclaimed polypropylene and wood fiber, two of the materials used to create his Broom Chair (2012). Starck drew the shape of this reclaimed, repurposed and recyclable chair in 2003, but it took a decade to design the chair in these eco-friendly materials. The Broom Chair made its debut at the 2012 Salone del Mobile in Milan, and as soon as we saw it, we knew it belonged in our assortment. Durable, comfortable, colorful and unique in how it makes use of normally discarded materials, Broom is a smart solution that literally sweeps up the waste from the industrial manufacturing cycle. All colors suitable for outdoor use except orange. This is the authentic Broom Chair by Emeco. Made in U.S.A. Made of a new composite of discarded industrial materials, reclaimed even before they enter the long cycle that most recycled materials have to undergo. Listed as an Editors Product Pick by Interior Design magazine in October 2012. Broom is a patented design by Philippe Starck for Emeco. It is illegal for another company to clone this chair. Materials: 75% reclaimed polypropylene; 15% reclaimed wood fiber; 10% glass fiber. Measurements:H 32.5" W 19" D 19.5" Seat H 17"
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. Measurements:H 76" W 39.5" D 24"
Massimo Vignellis iconic dinnerware won the prestigious Compasso dOro Award in 1964 and, in 1971, became the first product made by a company called Heller, now an international furniture manufacturer responsible for introducing the Bellini Chair®, Frank Gehry outdoor furniture and other icons of modern design. Heller Dinnerware was an instant classic, and because its still made using the same molds, a set bought today will blend seamlessly with vintage pieces. The Heller Clear Mug (1975) is made of thick, durable BPA-free Lucite. It can be used for hot and cold beverages. Wash by hand only. Made in U.S.A. Materials: BPA-free Lucite. Measurements:H 4.25" Diameter 3.25" (4.5" with handle)
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 Companionway Light (1920s), 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. Bulbs (not included) 60W/GLS/E26 or compact fluorescent equivalent. Made in England. Companionway Light is weatherproof. Materials: Weathered brass finish; clear well glass. Measurements:H 7.5" D 5", 1.5 lbs.
DWR Exclusive Made of 100% Turkish cotton, these towels are crafted using an innovative spinning process – known as Aerocotton – that creates ultra-soft and wonderfully plush towels. In addition, this process creates a larger surface area for the yarns, which translates into superior absorbency for you. DWR Aerocotton Towels (2011) are woven into a nice 700-gram weight (not too heavy, not too light), and then combed for extra softness. In keeping with a simple, modern aesthetic, there is no dobby or decorative banner on these towels, and the functional tag doubles as a hanger. Even after repeated washings, these towels retain their fluffy appearance and soft hand. Machine washable. Made in Turkey. This set includes one bath towel, one hand towel and one wash cloth. Materials: 100% Turkish cotton. Measurements:Wash Cloth: L 12" W 12" Hand Towel: L 30" W 20" Bath Towel: L 55" W 28"
With distinctive shapes inspired by primitive weaponry and a seat that appears suspended above the frame, the sculptural form of the Chieftains Chair (1949) changed the future of Danish design. Finn Juhl created the chair for the 1949 Cabinetmakers Guild in Copenhagen. During the exhibition, King Frederick IX sat in the chair, causing a journalist to suggest calling it the Kings Chair. But Juhl didnt like how pretentious that sounded and said, You had better call it a chieftains chair, which the journalist did. (At some point the apostrophe was dropped.) This is the authentic Chieftains Chair by Onecollection. Made in Denmark. Finn Juhl believed that the craftsmans ability to form is probably the same as that of a sculptor. The Chieftains Chair received the Danish Design Award in the Classics category for 2012. Materials: Teak and walnut frame; leather upholstery. Measurements:H 37.5" W 39" D 34.5" Seat H 13.5"
DWR Exclusive The Sonno Aloe Versa Mattress (2010) caters to couples, like the Versa. It comprises two individual reversible mattress halves placed side by side snugly inside a bamboo-poly cover with a green-colored fine mesh band that wicks away moisture to help the body maintain an ideal temperature while sleeping. Each half of the mattress has a firm side and a medium side, allowing both sleepers to suit their needs. (The seam between mattress halves is undetectable.) Unlike other memory foam mattresses, the Sonno immediately adjusts to suit your body position without requiring a warm-up period, supporting your weight whenever you roll. The result is a feeling of floating, which allows you to rest naturally, isolated from vibrations and movement that interrupt sound sleep. Free of metal coils that loosen and shorten the life of traditional mattresses, the Sonno Aloe Versa Mattress is designed to last. It ships rolled in a compact tube for easy handling and quickly expands to full thickness, ready for use on a well-ventilated platform or slat bed. Backed by a 10-year limited warranty. Made in Italy. Materials: Bio polyurethane foam core expanded with natural oils; Bio Mind Foam with aloe vera extracts. QUILTED COVER, 66% polyester, 34% bamboo. Measurements:Queen: H 9" W 60" D 80" King: H 9" W 76" D 80"
