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.

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 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"

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"
