Design Within Reach LC3 Grand Modele Three-Seat Sofa with Down Cushions
The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 Collections (1928) as cushion baskets, which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style. The resulting aesthetic of the simple tubular structure is remarkably relevant to how we live today, almost 90 years later. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassinas Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy. The differences between the collections are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has the option of either down- or Dacron-wrapped cushions. Materials: Chromed steel frame; nylon webbing; multi-density composite foam cushions with down wrap; top-grain semi-aniline leather upholstery; nickel-plated steel glides. Measurements:H 24.5" W 93.5" D 28.75" Seat H 15.75"
Design Within Reach Theatre Two-Seater Sofa
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"
Design Within Reach Finn Two-Seater Sofa
DWR Exclusive Danish designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn named their company Norm to express their dedication to working with Danish norms and standards refined over hundreds of years, says Bjerre-Poulsen, rather than rejecting them in the endless search for new. The sincerity of their approach – bypassing flashy design for good design – shows in the quality of their work. These are products that endure both physically and aesthetically. The Finn Collection (2013) they developed for Design Within Reach is directly tied to their philosophy in that it was built on a passion for details, tactility in design and creating for the need. Norm products never crave to be anything but what they are, says Rønn. That is the combination of utility, purity and quiet beauty. The teak frames can be oiled to maintain their original color or left alone to develop a beautiful silvery patina. Removable cushions are clad in UV-protected, mildew-resistant Sunbrella fabric to withstand the elements. Seating can be used with or without cushions. Weight capacity: 300 pounds per seating area. Made in Indonesia. The Finn Collection has been honored with a 2015 Architizer A+ Jury Award – selected by 300-plus international architecture and design leaders – and a 2014 Chicago Athenaeum Good Design® Award. Materials: Solid sustainably harvested teak frame; Serge Ferrari® mesh; Sunbrella® cushions; black powder-coated or brushed stainless steel fittings (cushions match fittings: choose black cushions with black powder-coated steel fittings or white cushions with brushed stainless steel fittings). Measurements:H 30" W 51.25" D 31" Seat H 15"
Design Within Reach Magis Air Armchair, Set of 4
Jasper Morrison’s inventive approach to materials and form takes new shape in the construction of his Air Collection (2000). The celebrated designer achieves these sleek and strong pieces by injection-molding a combination of polypropylene and glass fiber. The process creates a material of extreme durability that is rigid enough to meet structural needs yet still flexible and with some give for user comfort. This UV-resistant collection is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Air Armchair stacks up to 10 high for storage. Made in Italy. Materials: Recyclable fiberglass-infused polypropylene. Measurements:H 29" W 21" D 20" Seat H 18"
Design Within Reach Raction Potique Hi-Loop Service Table
Spanish designer Jaime Hayon immersed himself as a teenager in both skateboard culture and graffiti art, which lie at the core of the bold and whimsical forms that he creates today. In 1997, after studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris, he joined Fabrica, a research center in Treviso, Italy, where he soon became the head of design. Hayon struck out on his own in 2003, first devising collections of ceramics and furniture, then delving into interior design. His work is featured in several museums and has received accolades from the likes of Time and Wallpaper . Réaction Poétique commemorates the 50-year anniversary of Le Corbusiers death, inspired by the organic shapes of his architecture and LEsprit Nouveau artwork. I wanted to create useful objects for the modern home such as trays and side tables, but with sculptural elements interplaying forms, light and shadow, says Hayon. These pieces can be used for everything from passing hors doeuvres to displaying knickknacks. Each is carved and finished by hand and includes a card of authenticity. Made in Italy. Materials: Solid ash wood; matte black stain. Measurements:H 22" Diameter 16"

Design Within Reach NelsonTM Daybed with Back Bolsters
DWR Exclusive For George Nelson, design wasn’t 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 it, and when he was finally satisfied, the daybed became part of the Herman Miller collection in 1950. The next chapter for this timeless piece begins with you. This Daybed swiftly converts from sofa to bed with the removal of the bolsters. This is the authentic Nelson Daybed by Herman Miller. 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 cushions. Measurements:H 27.25" W 75" D 33" Seat H 15.25"
Design Within Reach Poet Sofa
Finn Juhl designed the Poet Sofa (1941) for use in his own home, located in Charlottenlund, a rural area north of Copenhagen. Today, the Juhl house – which is an early example of open-plan design and offers views to its garden from every room – is part of the Ordrupgaard Museum. Being connected to the landscape was something that Juhl both lived and practiced, and the influence is notable in the organic forms of his furniture. Being a true sensualist, Juhl created his furniture to be comfortable, made with the best craftsmanship traditions and showing an appreciation of materials. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of House of Finn JuhlTM. Made in Denmark.
