Design Within Reach Royal System Shelving Unit A with Desk Shelf
DWR Exclusive Owner of more than 400 patents, self-taught inventor Poul Cadovius constantly sought smarter solutions for everything from furniture to bus shelters to sailboats. In the mid-1940s, he devised an ingenious wall-mounted shelving system to save floor space: the Royal System (1948). After the systems introduction, Cadovius three-employee firm soon became the largest furniture manufacturer in Denmark, exporting to countries worldwide. In 2010, Cadovius gave the rights to produce the design to Danish company dk3. A year later, he died at the age of 99, but the project continued under the watchful eye of his widow, Evy, who made sure it stayed true to her husbands high standards. The most successful furniture collection in Denmark for three decades, the Royal System is back in production and available only at DWR. Use it in entryways, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms – wherever you want to lift space-stealing furniture off the floor and have more room for living. All pieces are finely crafted using time-honored techniques perfected over centuries by Danish woodworkers. Assembly not included with White Glove delivery service. Made in Denmark. Shelves will flex very slightly over time but will still retain their structural integrity. We recommend a weight limit of 35 pounds per shelf to maintain a straight profile. For additional storage, add the Extension Unit. Desk Shelf weight capacity: 55 pounds. Materials: Solid walnut or soaped oak rails; MDF with walnut or soaped oak veneer shelves; raw brass hangers (with walnut, meant to patina over time) or stainless steel hangers (with oak).

Design Within Reach Generation by Knoll
Freedom and flexibility are the guiding principles behind the creation of Knolls newest ergonomic seating solution, the Generation Chair (2009). Recognizing that sitting upright, facing forward is just one of the many positions people take throughout the day, the design team behind the Generation Chair created a seat that moves with you, as you move. Providing both freedom of movement and continuous support, its a groundbreaking example of elastic design – where a product rearranges itself in response to its user. The Generation Chair is manufactured by Knoll®. Backed by a 12-year manufacturers warranty. Height-adjustable arms; height- and depth-adjustable seat; a tilt preference selector; and flexible seat, back and top make the chair easily adjusted to your body type, without the use of intrusive levers. Choice of bases: burnished cast aluminum or integrally colored plastic. Recycled materials used in 40% of chair with plastic base, 46% of chair with aluminum base. Recyclable materials used in 39% of chair with plastic base, 54% of chair with aluminum base. Greenguard-certified and made in the U.S. at the Knoll® LEED Gold-certified factory. Awarded Best of NeoCon Gold Award for Task Chairs, 2009.

Design Within Reach Risom Desk
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.

Design Within Reach Ladderback Chair
Hans Wegners Ladderback Chair (1966), with its fine joinery and exquisite form, demonstrates the Danish modern innovators roots as a cabinetmaker. Shaker-inspired, it features visible joints between the foreleg and the armrest, which help make the chair extremely strong. The hand-woven paper cord seat provides a compelling material contrast to the solid oak frame on this intuitively ergonomic chair that can be used for reading or as a statement piece. A fine example of Wegners trademark organic functionalism, the Ladderback combines the warmth of natural wood with the clean, minimal lines of midcentury modernism. One of Wegners more than 500 chair creations, it has a timeless shape that hasnt aged a bit since its conception in 1966. Made in Denmark. Materials: Solid Danish oak wood; woven paper cord. Measurements:H 31.5" W 25.25" D 26" Seat H 15.5" Arm H 24.5"
Design Within Reach Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair
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. This is an authentic Eames Soft Pad Chair by Herman Miller. Backed by a 12-year manufacturers warranty. Made in U.S.A. Constructed of 67% recycled materials and 90% recyclable.

Design Within Reach Nine-0 Swivel Armchair - 3 Bar Back
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.
