Design Within Reach is the source for smart solutions. Our business started when our founder tried to furnish his apartment with the classics he'd come to appreciate while living in London. What he discovered was that acquiring these clean, simple and well-designed products was neither clean nor simple.
There had to be a better way, so in 1999 we bought 20 containers of product, mailed out a catalog and waited for the phone to ring. (It didn't for 24 hours, until we realized the nighttime answering machine had been accidentally left on.) The rest, as they say, is history. By giving customers access to these items, which are brilliantly conceived, simply executed and consistent with the enduring principles of modernism, we made design within reach.
Visit any of our DWR Studios or Tools for Living stores and you'll never see a “do not touch” sign. We invite you to linger, bring your dog or kids and join us for design events. Continue the experience here, at dwr.com, where you'll find everything we carry, plus additional finishes and styles not shown in our catalogs or Studios. And, of course, you can always call or Instant Message our San Francisco-based office. Whether you experience DWR by Studio, phone or online, you'll receive knowledgeable assistance from people who come from design backgrounds.
We stand behind everything we sell and we're proud to offer you our satisfaction guarantee.
