Design Within Reach Tuck Sleeper Sofa
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. The duo knows a few things about conceiving furniture that serves multiple purposes, developing a penchant for creating sleeper sofas that work overtime for those who are, well, working overtime. 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.

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 BassamFellows Daybed
This Daybed (2004) was designed to be seen in the round, says Craig Bassam, by which he means that it can be seen and used from all sides. Such an approach isnt surprising from a design team living in a glass house where furniture is visible from every angle, whether youre inside or out. The house is the work of Philip Johnson, the architect who designed the Glass House for his own private residence in New Canaan, Connecticut. To see how seamlessly this Daybed (and all the furniture BassamFellows has created) works in a space designed by the iconic Johnson makes it very clear that these are the next icons – destined to become highly collectible. Bassam is an architect whose career started with Bruce Eeles, a disciple of Marcel Breuer. His partner, Scott Fellows, is a Harvard MBA who transformed the Swiss firm Bally. Together they are BassamFellows, described as the design worlds A-team by The Times of London . This fully handcrafted Daybed is made of solid American black walnut that is sustainably and locally harvested. The leather cushions are hand-stitched with inverted seams; the backrest adjusts to three positions. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid American black walnut; oxidized brass adjustable back support; dense foam core cushions with down topping; Elmo Elmotique aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 11.75" W 76.5" D 33"
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. The color combinations are: beige with teal cushion and beige tufted buttons; grey with red cushion and red tufted buttons; tan with brown cushion and brown tufted buttons; charcoal with grey cushion and grey tufted buttons.

Design Within Reach Bilsby Sofa
DWR Exclusive Since graduating from Kingston Polytechnic in 1979, Matthew Hilton has created a number of innovative furniture collections, often drawing inspiration from unusual places. The idea for the Bilsby Sofa Collection (2014) came from a visit to The Homewood, a modern house designed by Patrick Gwynne and built by Leslie Bilsby in the English countryside. Combining the clean lines of Gwynnes architecture with state-of-the-art technologies from today, Bilsby is the perfect blend of aesthetics, comfort and support. The ultra-thin steel deck offers exceptional stability, while the custom combination of foam and down provides a comfortable sit with a tailored look. Designed with the urban dweller in mind, Bilsby features arms and backs that detach for easy delivery through narrow hallways and staircases. Made in Italy. Materials: Steel bottom deck; wood-framed back and sides; foam cushions with down filling and Dacron® wrap; satin-chromed steel legs; fabric or Kalahari full-grain, semi-aniline leather upholstery.

Design Within Reach Vitra Miniatures Collection: Eames Aluminum Management Chair
Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. When Charles and Ray Eames designed the Eames Aluminum Management Chair (1958), they created a revolution in seating that has lost none of its edge. These chairs were originally developed as a special project for a private residence being designed by Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard. Moving away from the Eameses shell forms of the 1940s, the designers combined a newly affordable aluminum frame with a sling seat that subtly conforms to the body's shape. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet. Materials: Polished cast aluminum; leather. Measurements:H 5.5" W 4" D 3"
Design Within Reach NelsonTM Thin Edge Bed
DWR Exclusive The process of bringing the Nelson Thin Edge Bed (1954) back into production began at the Herman Miller Archives, where engineers carefully studied vintage pieces and original drawings. In keeping with Nelson’s vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes – which weren’t commonly available in the 1950s – in addition to the original twin and full. Solid ash slats have replaced springs to accommodate an invention that also didn’t exist in Nelson’s day: memory-foam mattresses. Finishes have been updated to reflect new technologies and the aesthetic preferences of today’s consumer: Walnut replaces stained ash, and white ash replaces the original birch. The result is unmistakably Nelson – iconic designs of exceptional simplicity and clarity. This is the authentic Nelson Thin Edge Bed by Herman Miller. Made in Malaysia. Twin, full and queen platforms ship fully assembled. King and Cal. king platforms ship as two halves. Materials: Solid walnut or white ash frame; solid ash slats; walnut or white ash veneer headboard with or without natural woven cane panel; stainless steel headboard support with satin chrome finish; solid walnut or white ash legs or stainless steel H-frame legs with satin chrome finish. Measurements:Twin H 35" W 40.25" D 84.5" Platform H 13.25"
Design Within Reach Hector Pendant 4
Drawn to the translucency and versatility of bone china, Peter Bowles saw an opportunity to create something other than tableware with this time-honored material. The result is his Hector Collection (1992), which is beautifully crafted of hand-cast bone china. Creating these lights involves a highly skilled, labor-intensive process that begins with raw clay and ends with biscuit firing, glazing, glossing and firing again. When lit, these china shades have a translucent glow that allows for warm diffused light. Attention to detail is at the heart of every Original BTC collection, right down to the braided cord, which was designed by Peter and can be found on every light his company makes. The Hector Collection is UL Listed and suitable for contract use. Bulb (not included): 100W/GLS/E26. Made in England. Materials: Natural bone china shade and ceiling rose; braided, cotton-covered cord. Measurements:H 12" W 9.25", 4 lbs.
Design Within Reach Era Backless Counter Stool
Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple organic form, the graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong Era Collection has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. It is the work of Michael Thonet, who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making and in the process eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. Swiss Architect Le Corbusier used Thonets chairs for his projects, stating, Never before was something more elegant and better in its conception, more precise in its realization and more fit for practical use created. Other fans of this ubiquitous form included Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, both of whom featured it in their paintings. The Era Backless Stool (1859/1998) was created by engineers at Ton – manufacturer of Thonet seating for well over a century – in response to customer requests. Like any natural material, the wood used in this collection displays slight texture and color variations from one piece to another, making each unique. Made in the Czech Republic. Materials: Solid beech wood from FSC-certified sources; beech plywood seat; natural beech finish or water-based stain and varnish or lacquer finish; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 24.75" Diameter 18.75"
