Design Within Reach Lampe Gras Model 304 Sconce Lamp
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 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.

Design Within Reach Min Bed
DWR Exclusive Early in his career, Italian designer Luciano Bertoncini had a chance meeting with the legendary Joe Colombo, who chose one of Bertoncini's products to feature in his catalog. The exposure he received from that placement led to an invitation to contribute to the famous 1972 exhibition Italy: The New Domestic Landscape at MoMA in New York. Today, Bertoncini is a furniture designer working from his studio in Treviso, serving the needs of clients around the world. It takes a skilled designer to make a metal bed look elegant rather than institutional, and his Min Bed (2003) has been a best-selling product in our assortment since its debut. Combining high-quality materials and expert construction with a basic slat platform, the Min provides constant ventilation for your mattress (which is crucial for memory foam). Bed ships flat; simple assembly required. Made in Italy. This bed is compatible with our Sonno Mattress. Platform sits a few inches below frame.

Design Within Reach Random Light
Hugely dramatic, light as a feather and distinctly Dutch, the Random Light (2002) by Bertjan Pot began as a modernist craft project of sorts. After making attempts at knitting fiberglass as a means of creating structure, Pot turned to coiling epoxy-dipped fiberglass around a large balloon in varying patterns. Once the balloon was popped, the dramatic globe shape remained, becoming a buoyant pendant lamp for an entryway, dining room or lounge area. The light bulb is visible at the center of the globe, creating an all-over glow with minimal glare when lit. Bulb (not included): incandescent 60W/120V/A19/E26. UL Listed for commercial use. Made in the Netherlands. Materials: Epoxy; fiberglass. Measurements:Small: Diameter 19.75", 2.6 lbs.

Operating from her studio in Copenhagen, Halstrøm takes a minimalist approach to maximizing functionality. The Georg Bench works as a standalone piece and coordinates well with the console and stool. 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"
Design Within Reach Luciano Mirror

The show kicked off Bertoncini's career, and today he is a furniture designer working from his studio in Treviso. His Luciano Mirror (2011) echoes the clean and simple aesthetic of his Min Bedroom Collection, which has been a best-seller in our assortment since 2003.

Design Within Reach Mohair Throw
DWR Exclusive Wrap yourself in this luxuriously soft Mohair Throw and you'll understand why mohair, which is made from the hair of the Angora goat, has been prized since the 1500s. As warm as a hug, the high-quality mohair fibers are naturally durable and breathable. Mohair's inherent strength and flexibility has led to its use in a wide range of applications since Angora goats were brought to the West in the mid-1800s – from blankets and scarves to train seats and cowboy's chaps. Using all-natural vegetable dyes and only natural fibers, our 100% brushed Mohair Throw was woven at a mill in County Wicklow, Ireland, which has been manufacturing tweeds and blankets since 1723. Made in Ireland. Materials: 70% mohair; 30% pure wool Measurements:L 72" W 57"
Design Within Reach Noguchi Table
Following his apprenticeship with the legendary Constantin Brancusi, sculptor Isamu Noguchi began to experiment in environmental design, theatrical sets – he was the only designer 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. The Noguchi Table must ship with our White Glove delivery service. 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 Noguchi's 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"
Design Within Reach Eos Rectangular Table
DWR Exclusive When we asked Matthew Hilton to identify the common elements found in his work, he replied, "Functional, stackable, it has to store easily and be a good price." Fast-forward to today, and he's still staying true to those ideals. Seeing a need for durable outdoor furniture at accessible prices, Hilton created the Eos Collection (2011), which is sleek enough to work in an indoor dining space, as well. Eos is lightweight – literally and visually – smartly proportioned and very comfortable. Certain to inspire leisurely outdoor living during the long days of summer, this collection was named for Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn and bringer of light. It's constructed of powder-coated aluminum that won't rust over time. Rectangular and Square tables fit seamlessly together to create a longer table when needed. Made in China. Materials: Powder-coated aluminum; plastic floor glides. Measurements:H 28.75" W 63" D 31.5"
Design Within Reach Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Side Chair (DSW)
Charles and Ray Eames believed that "design is a method of action," and they continually updated their work as new materials became available. Their Molded Plastic chairs were originally designed in metal and entered as a prototype in MoMA's 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. They then changed the material to fiberglass in 1950, and today the chairs are made of recyclable polypropylene. Charles was dissatisfied with the fiberglass, and it wasn't until after his death that the matte finish he desired was achieved, thanks to advances in materials. "The chair that Charles and Ray were designing," explains grandson Eames Demetrios, "is the chair that's made tomorrow ." The deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs. This is an authentic chair by Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DSW stands for dining height, side chair with wood base. Materials: Injection-molded batch-dyed recyclable polypropylene; walnut, maple, ebony-stained ash or white ash dowels; black or white powder-coated or chrome-plated steel base. Measurements:H 31.75" W 18" D 21" Seat H 17.25"
Design Within Reach NelsonTM Platform Bench - Metal Leg
George Nelson's Platform Bench (1946) is one of the great icons of midcentury modernism. For Herman Miller's influential design director, utility was as important as beauty, and his spare rectangular bench is the result of this belief. It serves equally well as table, platform base or seating, depending on need and situation. No wonder it's been called timeless; something this functional never dates. The chrome legs have a slender profile; also available with wood legs. Ships with legs unattached; simple assembly required. This is the authentic Nelson Bench produced by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Constructed with solid maple or walnut, this piece showcases the natural variations in wood; slight color differences from slat to slat should be expected Materials: Solid maple or walnut slats with clear-coat finish; chromed metal legs; metal leveling glides. Measurements:H 14" W 48"/60"/72" D 18.5"
Design Within Reach AntTM Chair with 4 Legs in Colored Ash
Originally designed for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, an international Danish healthcare company, the Ant Chair (1952) faced an unclear future when the manufacturer expressed concern about its potential. But Arne Jacobsen believed in his product and offered to buy all the chairs if they didn't sell. Of course, he never had to make good on that offer, as the Ant Chair quickly became an international success. Jacobsen shaped the core of Danish design identity when he accommodated three different bends in one piece of plywood, simply by narrowing the chair back. This chair is ideally suited to the human body. Its seatback has a comfortable give, and its waterfall seat edge doesn't press into legs. Stackable up to six high. This is the authentic Ant Chair by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Denmark. Colored Ash is a durable stain that keeps the wood grain visible, making each chair unique. Grey Oak is a special edition with painted oak veneer shell and steel frame with bronze finish. Materials: Pressure-molded sliced veneer shell with outer layer in lazur-painted ash or oak veneer; tubular steel frame with polished chrome or matte bronze finish. Measurements:H 31.75" W 20" D 19" Seat H 18.25"
Design Within Reach Milo Baughman 1188 Dining Chair
DWR Exclusive The 1188 Chair (1968) was Milo Baughman's favorite chair and the one with which he chose to furnish the home of business partner and friend Thayer Coggin. Given that the Coggin family could've had any dining chair in the company's inventory, the 1188 is something special indeed. Baughman and Coggin met in 1953 and formed a powerful partnership that lasted for five decades. The North Carolina-based company is still the exclusive manufacturer of Baughman furniture to this day. The designer's work was included in High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1985. Baughman was inducted into the Furniture Design Hall of Fame in 1987. Made in U.S.A. Natural leather is prized for its unique markings. Scars, scrapes and wrinkles are not defects. The bronze finish is created by hand and is not uniform. This is intentional, and the marks of the craftsman are left on the chair to add warmth and character to each piece. Materials: Tubular polished stainless steel frame or tubular steel frame with brushed bronze finish; kiln-dried maple and plywood interior; foam and fiber cushions; fabric or leather upholstery. Measurements:H 30" W 23" D 23" Seat H 18" Arm H 25.5"
Design Within Reach Matera Bed
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 Bed has side panels that rest off the floor. Made in Malaysia. This bed requires no box spring and is compatible with our Sonno Mattress. Materials: Solid walnut or oak case frame and bed rails; walnut or oak veneer over MDF headboard and footboard with thick solid walnut or oak edging; 0.5" solid ash bed slats.

Design Within Reach Eames Molded Fiberglass Wire-Base Armchair (DFAR)
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. DFAR stands for dining-height fiberglass armchair with rod 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; black or white powder-coated or chrome-plated steel base; leveling floor glides. 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. Measurements:H 32" W 25" D 23" Seat H 17.25" Arm H 26.5"
Design Within Reach Line Console
DWR Exclusive "I have always been inspired by the simple forms of turntables and entertainment units from the 1960s," says designer Nathan Yong – a remarkable statement when you learn that Yong grew up in a wooden hut by the sea, where he and his brother made their own toys and "waited for low tides so we could pick up treasures from the shore." Growing up with the beach as entertainment, Yong developed into a resourceful designer, whose work captivated us with its quiet elegance. At Salone del Mobile , the annual furniture fair in Milan, Yong showed us his Line Media Console, and we liked the aesthetic so much that we asked him to expand the collection. A versatile storage solution, the Line Console (2012) has two louvered doors, six cubbies and two drawers with leather pulls. The louvered design also serves a functional purpose, allowing infrared light to reach remote-controlled devices stored inside. This piece can be used in an entryway for storage or in a bedroom opposite an elevated bed as a base for a flat-screen TV. Constructed with leveling floor glides for uneven surfaces. Made in Malaysia. Materials: Solid American walnut, white oak or painted ash frame; MDF with walnut, oak or painted ash veneer. Measurements:H 35" W 41.5" D 14"
Design Within Reach Jens Bench
DWR Exclusive Running into legendary designer Jens Risom in the halls at DWR headquarters was one of the many pleasures of working here. Over the years, we collaborated with Risom on a number of product launches. The Jens Bench (2008) came about when we worked with him to re-launch his Chair and Ottoman, originally designed in 1949 for the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico. Decades had passed since this collection was in production, and Risom worked closely with us on every step of its return, from reviewing prototypes, to adjusting tiny details, to advocating cost-effective changes in the manufacturing process. Like all the furniture by this iconic designer, this collection has a subtle Scandinavian sensibility that works with modern and traditional settings. Or, as Risom put it, "Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things." Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid oak or walnut frame; solid plywood top with oak or walnut veneer; fabric or Elmosoft Scandinavian semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 20" W 63" D 18"
Design Within Reach IC F1 Floor Lamp
After being schooled in industrial design and engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in London, Michael Anastassiades founded his own studio in 1994. His work falls somewhere in between the industrial and sculptural, especially his lighting, which consists of reflective materials such as polished bronze and mirrored glass in simple geometric shapes. Anastassiades' pieces can be found in hotels, restaurants and shops worldwide, including the SoHo House New York, the Grand Hôtel Stockholm and Sergio Rossi boutiques. The IC Lamp (2013) possesses the poetic grace and balance that characterize all of his pieces, consisting of a blown glass diffuser mounted on an ultra-thin yet stable frame. Positioned in a seemingly precarious manner, as if it's ready to drop any moment, the perched sphere lends captivating tension to the design. Bulb (included): 60W/G9 frosted halogen. Made in Italy. Materials: Brass frame with clear finish or steel frame with chrome finish; frosted blown glass diffuser. Measurements:H 53" W 11" D 11"
Design Within Reach Doormat with Bristles
The Iris Hantwerk company produces high-quality household items using techniques that date back to the 19th century. Enlisting the skills of top designers to conceptualize their products, they hire and support visually impaired craftspeople to create these meticulously assembled pieces. Tough enough for gardeners' muddy boots, the Doormat with Bristles (2008) is a must for the mudroom, entry or porch. Rows of stiff synthetic bristles trap sand and dirt, and the durable raised beech wood slats allow water to pass through for quick drying. Made in Sweden. Materials: Beech wood; synthetic fibers. Measurements:H 1.5" W 23.75" D 15.75"

Design Within Reach Hoffmann Armchair
Josef Hoffmann is well known for the simple, restrained, yet visually interesting dining chairs – several intended for cafés – that he designed early in the 20th century. The influence of the Arts and Crafts movement can be seen in his work, but Hoffmann also embraced the industrial age. Rather than rejecting traditional decoration, he succeeded in making it serve structural principles, which he believed should determine the forms of buildings, interiors and objects. Whether admiring one of his chairs or the Sanatorium Purkersdorf he designed in 1903, you can see Hoffmann's emphasis on straight, unadorned lines, characteristics that are in keeping with the style of the Viennese Secession. The Hoffmann Armchair (1925), designed in collaboration with Josef Frank, is made at the bentwood factory founded by Michael Thonet in 1861. Made in the Czech Republic. Materials: Solid European beech wood from FSC-certified sources; caned seat; water-based stain and clear varnish; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 31.5" W 19.5" D 21" Seat H 18" Arm H 27.5"
Design Within Reach Fun 1 Table Lamp
DWR Exclusive Most people are familiar with Danish designer Verner Panton for his S-shaped chair and op-art environments, but his Fun Lamps (1964) are equally iconoclastic. One of the most sought-after modern lighting designs at auction today, the Fun Lamps give modernism a decorative dimension without being cute – think of them as functional jewelry for interiors. The cascading design is composed of hand-cut mother of pearl discs, which make wonderful musical sounds when stirred by a breeze. These lamps have an ethereal presence, with light shining through the discs to produce a warm, opulent glow. Bulb (not included): incandescent E26. Made in Denmark. Each lamp is stamped with Panton's signature and comes with a certificate of authenticity. UL Listed and suitable for commercial use. Ships flat to avoid tangling; assembly required. Materials: Steel structure; hand-cut mother of pearl discs; on/off switch on transparent cord. Measurements:H 25.5" Diameter 15.75" Cord L 86.75"
Design Within Reach Wassily Chair
In spirit and stature, Marcel Breuer's Wassily Chair (1925) from Knoll has few equals. Believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, the Wassily Chair distills the traditional club chair to a series of strong, spare lines, executed with dynamic material counterpoint. The gleaming chrome-finished tubular steel frame – inspired by the graceful, curving handlebars of the Adler bicycle – is seamless in its assemblage. Thick cowhide leather, belting leather or canvas slings create the design's seating surfaces, which maintain their crisp tautness for decades. Named for Wassily Kandinsky, the father of abstract painting and a colleague of Breuer's at the Bauhaus, the Wassily Chair is a symbol of the industrial heroism and engineering invention of the early 20th century. Made in Italy. Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer's signature. The Wassily Chair is a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc., manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Processed in the Santa Croce region of Italy, 100% vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed Spinneybeck® belting leather is smooth, with a tight-grain texture and rich saturated color; it has a light, protective, water-resistant finish. Materials: Tubular steel frame with polished chrome finish; leather or fabric slings; plastic glides. Canvas: 100% natural cotton canvas slings. Belting leather: 100% vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed Spinneybeck® belting leather slings. Cowhide: Cowhide leather slings. Measurements:H 28.75" W 30.75" D 27" Seat H 16.5" Arm H 23"

Fitted with a patented conversion mechanism, the Vesper mattress rests entirely on a wooden platform, which means you won't feel the sturdy crossbar underneath. When opened, Vesper takes up less space – nearly a foot less in depth – than conventional sleepers but still gives you a standard-size sleeping surface. The Vesper Sleeper Sofa must ship with our White Glove delivery service. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Kiln-dried hardwood frame; 4"-thick high-density foam mattress; high-resiliency foam cushions with Dacron® wrap; down-filled bolsters; fabric or leather upholstery.

Design Within Reach Era Round Armchair with Cane Seat
Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple form, the contract-quality Era Chair (1859) has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. By making the back of the chair and rear legs from a single piece of curved wood, designer Michael Thonet – who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making – eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. The resulting chair is graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong – the latter of which has been continually proven in cafés and restaurants all over the globe. As with any natural material, slight variations in the texture and color of the wood are to be expected and are not defects. Made in Czech Republic. Materials: Solid European beech wood from FSC-certified sources; natural cane seat; water-borne stain and varnish or lacquer; nylon floor glides.

Design Within Reach NelsonTM Cigar Wall Sconce
Architect George Nelson, who was Herman Miller's 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. Designed with a swivel hinge and 12-foot plug-in cord, the shade can be readjusted left or right, as well as shifted up or down without moving the bracket on the wall. Materials: Plastic polymer; steel frame; steel arm with brushed nickel finish; walnut wall bracket. Measurements:Overall: H 16.75"–32" D 18" Cord L 12', 7 lbs. Shade: H 14" Diameter 10.5"
Design Within Reach Chieftains Chair
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 "King's Chair." But Juhl didn't like how pretentious that sounded and said, "You had better call it a chieftain's chair," which the journalist did. (At some point the apostrophe was dropped.) This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of House of Finn JuhlTM. Made in Denmark. Finn Juhl believed that "the craftsman's 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"
Design Within Reach Fortuny Lamp
"It is not the quantity, but the quality of light, that makes things visible," said Spanish designer Mariano Fortuny. Trained as a painter, he was also an accomplished and innovative couturier, architect, inventor, set designer and lighting technician. The Delphos gown he designed in 1907 continues to shape women's fashion today, and the textiles company he founded in 1921 is still going strong. His patented cyclorama dome made it possible to change stage lighting instantly from bright sky to faint dusk, and his reflector lamp works on the same principle. A product of his lighting expertise, the height-adjustable Fortuny Lamp (1907) lets you direct light as desired with its sizable rotating shade. This imposing piece works to striking effect in large spaces such as restaurants, reception rooms and open-plan living areas. Dimmer switch on cord affords easy on-off access. Bulb (included): dimmable incandescent 500W/120V/E40. Made in Italy. Materials: Cotton shade; steel frame. Measurements:H 75"–94.5" W 37" D 32.5"
Design Within Reach Moller Model 80A Stool with Natural Woven Seat
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.
Design Within Reach Barcelona Couch
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's 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.

The stools feature chromed steel crossbars that add to their unyielding stability and double as footrests. The strong, supple leather is hand stitched and treated for stain resistance. Clear plastic guides protect floors. Made in Italy. Materials: Steel frame; leather upholstery; polyurethane foam; plastic glides. Measurements:H 31.5" W 17" D 19.75" Seat H 17.75"

Design Within Reach Krusin Coffee Table
After earning a degree in furniture design from Leeds Metropolitan University in England, Marc Krusin moved to Milan to launch his career. He cofounded the design group Codice 31 and has collaborated with Piero Lissoni, Kartell, Flos and Knoll.
