Design Within Reach
Design Within Reach began in 1998 when Rob Forbes wanted to furnish his apartment with the sleek, clean lines of designers he’d come to appreciate while living in London. Based in the U.S., he discovered that one had to travel to Europe or enlist an intermediary to buy classic mid-century modern furniture (that weren’t knockoffs). He got started by purchasing 20 containers of furniture and mailed out a catalog – and voilà, Design Within Reach was born. DWR prides itself in providing authentic contemporary furniture from designers such as Emeco, Herman Miller, Vitra, and Eames – not “in the spirit of” or “inspired by” – but the genuine and original articles. Furniture includes the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller; the Outline Sofa designed by Torborn Anderssen and Espen Voll for Muuto; the Reid Armchair designed by Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk for Design Within Reach; and the Min Bed With Headboard designed by Luciano Bertoncini – plus countless other pieces, such as coffee tables, end tables, dining room tables, credenzas, accent chairs, living room chairs, wooden dressers, beds, and so much more. DWR literally creates design within [your] reach, and brings the fabulous designers of European mid-century modern furniture to your room for a standout and elegant style that’s authentic, not copied, providing a fresh look to any space.
