In 1944, Niels Otto Møller began his cabinetry company, where old craft traditions, like the hand-woven seat on the Model 80A Stool (1963), are still used today. Danish cord seats are known for their durability easily withstanding decades of frequent use and the strength of this material made it a smart substitute for tires when rubber was in short supply during WWII. What's amazing about that history is that Danish cord is made of tightly twisted paper. Being a natural material, Danish cord is very pleasant to sit on and the way that it's woven provides lasting comfort. Thirty years after he founded his company, Niels Otto Møller began exporting his chairs to Japan, which remains one of its biggest markets due to the simplicity and quality of the design and craftsmanship. Møllers is still a small family-owned business and is now managaged by Niels' son, Jørgen Henrik Møller. This Stool is an authentic, fully licensed product of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. The seat is woven by hand from one continuous 498-foot-long piece of cord. To make the frames, the company selects the raw wood themselves from environmentally friendly areas. Machines are never used for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and can’t replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand. Materials Teak or walnut frame; woven paper seat in natural.
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. Measurements:H 25" W 39" D 78" Seat H 15.5"
The Eameses designed their Eames Sofa (1967) to complement their Soft Pad Collection, showing off a harmonious blend of wood, leather and polished aluminum. It stands as a graceful reminder of the honest genius of Eames designs, equally fitting for home or office, with carefully considered details. The frame and back panels are constructed of rich solid wood and hand-finished with gunstock oil. Legs and arm supports are made of die-cast aluminum polished to a bright finish. And plush foam cushions come upholstered in leather, with undersides covered in nylon for good ventilation, supported by resilient webbing for added comfort. The Eames Sofa was the last piece of furniture produced by the Eames Office and was completed after Charles Eames died in 1978. Its been in continuous production since 1984. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid walnut or solid teak frame and back; die-cast polished aluminum legs and arm supports; polyurethane foam cushions; fabric-reinforced rubber webbing; leather upholstery; stainless steel glides.

Charles and Ray Eames had ideas about making a better world, one in which things were designed to bring greater pleasure to our lives. Their iconic Eames Lounge Chair (1956) began with a desire to create a chair with the warm, receptive look of a well-used first basemans mitt. The result has become the consummate lounge. In continuous production since its introduction, the Eames Lounge Chair is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. Pairing soft, inviting leather with the sleek form of molded wood, this piece was the culmination of the Eameses efforts to create a club chair using the molded plywood technology that they pioneered in the 40s. Even today, each piece is assembled by hand to ensure the highest level of quality and craftsmanship, and youll be pleased to discover that this chair gets even better with use and age. The configuration of this chair is a registered trademark, and this is the authentic Eames Lounge Chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Seven-ply walnut or santos palisander veneer; molded plywood frame; die-cast aluminum swivel base and back braces; polyurethane foam cushions; stainless steel leveling floor glides; Spinneybeck® Vicenza leather upholstery. Measurements:H 32" W 32.75" D 32.75" Seat H 15"
DWR Exclusive Atlanta-based industrial designer Chris Hardy, who made his design debut at Salone del Mobile in 2011, created the sculptural Helix Coffee Table (2012) for DWR. He gave it an odd number of legs and positioned the brass castings to radiate out from the center, resulting in a distinctive asymmetrical form that looks different from every angle. For Helix, I was inspired by the challenge of personalization in the modern world, and the increasing desire that we have to own objects that match our own styles and philosophies – in the way that art does, explains Hardy. Made by hand, the cast brass base has a natural finish thats soft and not highly polished; minor pitting and irregularities in the brass are typical of the casting process and are not defects. Thick and durable, the annealed glass tabletop is slowly cooled in a kiln to relieve internal stresses after its formed. Leveling glides adjust for uneven floors. Simple assembly required; no tools necessary. Base made in India; tabletop made in U.S.A. Materials: Cast brass; solid walnut; glass. Measurements:H 20" Diameter 20"
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. Measurements:H 28" W 39" D 35.5" Seat H 16"
DWR Exclusive To create his Como Collection (2007), Italian designer Giorgio Soressi enlisted one of the most widely respected companies in Italy. Located near Lake Como, this family-run business is still producing best-in-class sofas and chairs for many prestigious retailers to this day, blending design, research, cutting-edge technologies and artisanal techniques. The elegant and extremely well-constructed Como Collection is built with solid steel frames and cast-aluminum legs. Contrasting that heft and stability are cushions that scream, Youve got to sit here! with their goose feather filling and variable-density foam thats firmer in front for support. Two Como Throw Pillows included. Made in Italy. Materials: Steel frame; polished cast-aluminum legs; spring suspension with elastic webbing; polyurethane foam seat cushions with natural goose feather filling; Piumafil® back cushions; fabric or Kalahari full-grain, semi-aniline leather upholstery. Measurements:H 27.25" W 92.25" D 41.5" Seat H 15.5"
George Nelson’s Platform Bench (1946) is one of the great icons of midcentury modernism. For Herman Miller’s influential design director, utility was as important as beauty, and his spare rectangular bench is the result of this belief. It serves equally well as table, platform base or seating, depending on need and situation. No wonder it’s been called timeless; something this functional never dates. The chrome legs have a slender profile; also available with wood legs. Ships with legs unattached; simple assembly required. This is the authentic Nelson Bench produced by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Constructed with solid maple or walnut, this piece showcases the natural variations in wood; slight color differences from slat to slat should be expected Materials: Solid maple or walnut slats with clear-coat finish; chromed metal legs; metal leveling glides. Measurements:H 14" W 48"/60"/72" D 18.5"
Craig Bassam is an architect and designer 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 . In 2010, they started collaborating with the Michigan-based company Herman Miller to develop refined seating that complements the classic works by Eames, Nelson and Noguchi. The Bolster Sofa Collection (2014) is one of the results of this special union, delivering an inviting and thoughtfully scaled solution for spaces large and small. Taking its name from the shape of its horizontal pillows, Bolster provides supportive upright sitting as well as plush comfort for those times when you want to stretch out and relax. Made in U.S.A. Bolster features soft, pliable cushions that allow its leather to stretch and loosen a bit more than on other designs, resulting in a plush, well-used look that adds warmth and character over time. Materials: Kiln-dried, corner-blocked hardwood frame; unidirectional webbing suspension; foam cushions wrapped in Featherblend™ fill (50% Ultima Supreme™ polyester fibers, 45% UltraClean™ duck feathers, 5% UltraClean™ duck down); solid stainless steel legs; 100% wool fabric or MCL all-grain leather upholstery. Measurements:H 29" W 36" D 32" Seat H 16.5" Seat D 21.5" Arm H 24"
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 Nelsons vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes – which werent 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 didnt exist in Nelsons day: memory-foam mattresses. Finishes have been updated to reflect new technologies and the aesthetic preferences of todays 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"
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"
Following his apprenticeship with the legendary Constantin Brancusi, sculptor Isamu Noguchi began to experiment in environmental design, theatrical sets and, eventually, product design. He created his first furniture prototypes for Herman Miller in 1942, later going on to work with other companies such as Steuben and Zenith. His Rudder Table (1949) features an asymmetrical form composed of mixed materials: warm wood and sleek chromed steel. The shape of its top – the same as that of the renowned Noguchi® Table – and the combination of metal and wood legs are true to Noguchis original design. At a quick glance, the subtle metal hairpin legs almost disappear, suggesting the top rests solely on the rudder-shaped wood leg, imparting airiness to the whole. This is the authentic Noguchi Rudder Table produced by Herman Miller. Ships flat; simple assembly required. Made in U.S.A Materials: Ebonized maple, walnut or white ash veneer over plywood; chromed steel. Measurements:H 15.75" W 49.75" D 35.75"
DWR Exclusive Jon Gasca has learned much from his father, Jesús, founder and principal designer of Stua ( solo tengo un amor , or I have only one love), including the patience for developing an idea. When he first saw the prototype for his Eclipse Nesting Tables (2009), he wondered: Will it make an impression on people? And will it be enjoyed for a long time? For this organically shaped set of modular tables – and all the other items Stua creates – the answer to those questions is yes. Eclipse Nesting Tables are each a different shape and height, allowing for endless configurations. The smaller ones can be concealed under the larger and brought out when more tabletop space is needed. Simple assembly required. Made in Spain. This table accommodates our existing Eclipse Nesting Tables. Materials: MDF with natural veneer or white lacquered laminate; steel with matte chrome finish; felt glides. Measurements:H 14" W 43.5" D 31.5"
Though hes known as the master of chairs, Danish modernism pioneer Hans Wegner didnt entirely neglect the other categories. Applying his signature organic, minimal form, the Wegner Coffee Table (1954) is perfectly balanced on three legs, defying gravity with its visual lightness. The solid walnut table has a clear lacquer finish, allowing the natural warmth of the wood to come though and requiring minimal maintenance. The table's compact size makes it versatile enough to be used in front of or next to the sofa or as a bedside table. Made in Denmark. Materials: Solid walnut with clear lacquer. Measurements:H 17.5" Diameter 30.75"
After being recruited by none other than Charles Eames to become director of design for the Herman Miller textile division in 1952, Alexander Girard was given the freedom to experiment with vibrant hues and patterns in his work. His striking Hexagonal Table (1967) pays homage to the hexagon, a shape that he experimented with in multiple forms, from textiles and graphics to accessories and furnishings. This striking polished aluminum table combines a hexagonal top inscribed with 200-plus triangles for a bright jewel-like look with flowing splayed legs for stability. Use it alone as a side table, or place several together to create a host of configurations. This is the authentic Girard Hexagonal Table by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Polished die-cast aluminum top and legs; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 16.5" W 17.75" D 17.75"

In a 1956 Time magazine cover story, Eero Saarinen said that the underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world and he was designing a new collection to clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home. Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table (1956), whose form was inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid. This iconic table features a cast-aluminum base with abrasion-resistant Rilsan finish and a solid marble, wood veneer or laminate tabletop. Each is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Eero Saarinens signature. This is the authentic Saarinen Pedestal Table by Knoll. Base made in China; tabletop made in Italy or U.S.A., depending on material. Stone masters carefully select marble with the best composition and veining to create tops for marble Saarinen Pedestal Tables. Please rest assured that each ones unique markings are not imperfections but rather the very traits that make it a true one of a kind. Coated marble tops have a glossy polyester coating, and satin-coated marble tops have a matte satin polyester coating; both types help protect against stains. Materials: Cast-aluminum base with Rilsan® finish; solid marble, wood veneer or laminate tabletop with beveled edge. Solid marble: Arabescato (white with heavy grey veining), Calacatta, Nero Marquina or Verde Alpi (green with black and white veining). Wood veneer: MDF with cathedral-grain cherry, ebonized walnut, oak, walnut or Pau Ferro rosewood veneer. Laminate: MDF with laminate. Measurements:H 15.25" W 42.25" D 27.5"
After being recruited by none other than Charles Eames to become director of design for the Herman Miller textile division in 1952, Alexander Girard was given the freedom to experiment with vibrant hues and patterns in his work. His sculptural Splayed Leg Table (1967) combines a slightly veined square marble top for a subtly distinct look with flowing splayed aluminum legs for stability. Its elegant materials and timeless form make it ideal for a variety of residential and commercial spaces, from living room and bedroom to hotel room and boardroom. Use it alone as a side table, or place several together to create a host of configurations. This is the authentic Girard Splayed Leg Table by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Solid white Carrara or black Nero Marquina marble top; polished die-cast aluminum legs; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 16.75" W 20" D 20"
DWR Exclusive I have always been inspired by the simple forms of turntables and entertainment units from the 1960s, says designer Nathan Yong – a remarkable statement when you learn that Yong grew up in a wooden hut by the sea, where he and his brother made their own toys and waited for low tides so we could pick up treasures from the shore. Growing up with the beach as entertainment, Yong developed into a resourceful designer, whose work captivated us with its quiet elegance. At Salone del Mobile , the annual furniture fair in Milan, Yong showed us his Line Media Console, and we liked the aesthetic so much that we asked him to expand the collection. A versatile storage solution, the Line Console (2012) has two louvered doors, six cubbies and two drawers with leather pulls. The louvered design also serves a functional purpose, allowing infrared light to reach remote-controlled devices stored inside. This piece can be used in an entryway for storage or in a bedroom opposite an elevated bed as a base for a flat-screen TV. Constructed with leveling floor glides for uneven surfaces. Made in Malaysia. Materials: Solid American walnut, white oak or painted ash frame; MDF with walnut, oak or painted ash veneer. Measurements:H 35" W 41.5" D 14"
DWR Exclusive With his Costura Sofa Collection (2015), Jon Gasca wanted to bring back the practice of working with artisans, and celebrate the noble traditions of the small ateliers were surrounded by in San Sebastin, he says. The stunning result is a collection that combines slim frames and tailored lines with plush back cushions shaped to provide lumbar support and a roomy seat that invites serious lounging. My grandmother was a tailor for the fashion house Balenciaga, says the designer. I wanted to use all the tailoring techniques I learned from her and bring them into the future. The collections name means sewing or couture in English. Like choices? You can align the legs to be straight or diagonal. Made in Spain; upholstered in Italian fabric. Materials: Molded plywood frame with Dacron® wrap; belt suspension; foam seat cushions; feather-filled back pillows; painted aluminum legs. Linen Weave: 51% viscose, 28% cotton, 21% flax.

DWR Exclusive For George Nelson, design wasnt 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"

With his iconic seating collection, Harry Bertoia transformed industrial wire rods into a new furniture form. The events that made this work possible began a decade earlier at Cranbrook Academy of Art, when Bertoia met Florence Knoll (then Florence Schust). Years later, the Italian-born designer was invited to work for Florence and her husband, Hans Knoll. Bertoia was given the freedom to work on whatever suited him, without being held to a strict design agenda, and the result of this arrangement was the Bertoia Seating Collection (1952). Featuring a delicate filigreed appearance thats supremely strong, these airy seats are sculpted out of steel rods. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and these chairs were an extension of that work. If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture, said Bertoia. Space passes through them. After designing his seating collection, Bertoia returned to focusing mostly on sculpture. This is the authentic Bertoia Chair produced by Knoll. The Knoll logo is stamped into its base. Made in Italy. The White frame can be used outdoors with limited exposure to the elements. The Chrome frame is not for outdoor use. Classic Bouclé cover is not for outdoor use. Materials: Welded steel rods; polished chrome finish with chrome connections or bonded Rilsan® finish with stainless steel connections. KnollTextiles Classic Bouclé upholstery (57% nylon, 43% wool). Measurements:H 28.75" W 21.75" D 19.75" Seat H 17.75"
DWR Exclusive Born in Lissone, Italy, and educated at the Institute of Applied Arts in Monza (where the famous design Triennale began), Pietro Arosio started his independent studio in 1972, and his work has been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Modern Arts Museum in Munich. A master at creating technical furniture without sacrificing style and use, Arosio begins each project with intensive research and development in the engineering of a piece. Simple, elegant and really quite cool, the Sliding Sleeper Sofa (2000) quickly transforms into a queen-size bed with minimal effort, thanks to a patented conversion mechanism. The firm seat cushions and backrest provide a comfortable platform for sitting and sleeping, while two large, feather-filled pillows (upholstered in the same color as the sofa) allow you to lounge how you like. The upholstery is fully removable for cleaning. Clean lines and modern proportions contribute to the stylish presence of this Sofa, underscored by superb Italian construction. The back legs are fitted with casters for mobility. Ships assembled; legs are not removable. Made in Italy. Materials: Powder-coated, die-cast aluminum base; high-density polyurethane foam; goose feather-filled pillows. LINEN/ROSSO fabric, 72% cotton, 21% viscose, 7% linen; SMOKE fabric, 100% polyester.

DWR Exclusive Raleigh (2009) is a comfortable collection that draws from midcentury Danish design. It features an exposed solid wood frame that wraps around the back to support the seating area while lending visual lightness and satisfying tension to the whole. Unlike other exposed-frame collections that force overly upright sitting positions, Raleigh is designed with a carefully canted seatback for a more natural way of situating yourself as you relax and unwind. We chose to work with Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk on this project because of the importance they place on people – how they move, interact, live and, most of all, sit. The Raleigh Collection was named Best of Year by Interior Design in 2010, winning the magazine's top honor for the residential lounge category. Back cushions have removable covers for cleaning. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Kiln-dried, corner-blocked hardwood frame; unidirectional web suspension; high-density, high-resiliency polyurethane foam seat cushions with Dacron® wrap; Poly-fil®-, feather- and down-blend back cushions; solid walnut external frame; fabric or leather upholstery. Measurements:H 34" W 60" D 35" Seat H 18" Arm H 24"
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.

The expressive sculptural forms of Eero Saarinens furniture can still be found to this very day in his architecture, from the TWA Terminal at Kennedy Airport to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to Dulles International Airport. In 1940, the Finnish American and his friend Charles Eames took first prize at the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at MoMA. Later that decade, Saarinen developed his fit-for-two Womb Settee (1948) for his first big architectural commission, the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan – a massive 25-building complex that required furnishings for over 5,000 people. By applying foam molded over a fiberglass shell, Saarinen created a single-piece form that perfectly facilitates a relaxed sitting posture. Of the clumsy oversized models seen elsewhere that Settee was designed to replace, Saarinen said, These dreadnoughts disappeared from modern interiors partly because they were designed for an era that tried to impress by sheer mass, but he saw the robust forms as timeless. The need for such chairs has not passed. Today, more than ever, we need to relax. This is the authentic Womb Settee by Knoll. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Steel rod frame with black powder-coated finish; reinforced fiberglass shell; plywood platform; polyester fiber padding with foam core; stainless steel and nylon glides. Classic Bouclé: KnollTextiles Classic Bouclé upholstery (52% wool, 48% nylon). Cato: KnollTextiles Cato upholstery (86% wool, 14% rayon). Measurements:H 35.5" W 62.25" D 34" Seat H 16"
Whether working with the designers at Herman Miller or his Manhattan studio team, George Nelson knew how to bring out the best in people by encouraging them to experiment and play. George Mulhauser arrived fresh from Pratt with a portfolio filled with sketches, one of which evolved into the Coconut Chair (1955) under Nelsons tutelage. Named for its shell-fragment shape that invites lounging in a variety of positions, Coconut is clever in how it integrates seat, back and arms into one simple form. This is the authentic Coconut Chair by Herman Miller. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller, Inc. Made in Germany. Materials: Molded plastic shell; foam rubber cushion; chromed steel; full-grain, semi-aniline leather upholstery; plastic glides. Measurements:H 33" W 40" D 34"
Form follows function, and nowhere is that more apparent than in a sculpted chair that anticipates the curves of the human body. Arne Jacobsen designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for its busy lobby, he created the biomorphic Egg (1958). With this chair, Jacobsen embraced new materials that allowed him to shape fluid curves and single-piece molded shells. At a time when others were experimenting with bent tubular steel, Jacobsen focused on the upholstered armchair, believing a solution existed that was still true to modern ideals. Indeed, he met that goal. Set on a rotating base, the Egg Chair allows sitters to swivel toward a conversation area or away from others if privacy is desired. It also tilts back for relaxed lounging. This is the authentic Egg Chair manufactured by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland. The Egg Chair tilts and swivels. Finely upholstered, the fabric or leather is hand-sewn onto the frame. Materials: Fiberglass-reinforced polyurethane foam shell; satin-chromed steel column; injection-molded aluminum base; fabric or leather upholstery.

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.

With his iconic seating collection, Harry Bertoia transformed industrial wire rods into a new furniture form. The events that made this work possible began a decade earlier at Cranbrook Academy of Art, when Bertoia met Florence Knoll (then Florence Schust). Years later, the Italian-born designer was invited to work for Florence and her husband, Hans Knoll. Bertoia was given the freedom to work on whatever suited him, without being held to a strict design agenda, and the result of this arrangement was the Bertoia Seating Collection (1952). These extremely strong yet airy chairs are sculpted out of steel rods with a delicate filigreed appearance. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and his chairs were an extension of that work. If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture, said Bertoia. Space passes through them. After designing his seating collection, Bertoia returned to focusing mostly on sculpture. This is an authentic Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair produced by Knoll, with the Knoll logo stamped into its base. Seat pad is secured with metal snaps. Chair made in Italy; seat pad made in U.S.A. Materials: Welded steel rods; polished chrome finish with chrome connections or bonded Rilsan® finish with stainless steel connections; vinyl seat pad (65% polyester, 35% rayon). Measurements:H 30" W 33.5" D 28.25" Seat H 16.5"
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.

Son and pupil of architect P.V. Jensen Klint, best known as the designer of Grundtvigs Church in Copenhagen, Kaare Klint went on to become known as one of the forefathers of modern Danish furniture design. In 1924, he founded the department of furniture design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, which shaped future furniture designers such as Poul Kjærholm and Børge Mogensen. Through his work, he defined the fundamental traits of Danish modern furniture: clean lines, fine materials and exceptional craftsmanship. Klint based his furniture designs on functional principles and careful analyses of human proportions. His Safari Footrest (1933) takes its design cues from the light, portable camp chairs used by English officers. Remarkably, Safari can be easily assembled and disassembled entirely without tools, and this knockdown capability has made it a modern classic. Made in Denmark. Materials: Solid ash frame with smoked oil finish; canvas or leather sling; adjustable leather straps. Measurements:H 13.5" W 22.5" D 22.5"
