Hitting hard at promoting the designs and the designers, you'll find great pieces at DWR in a limited range of colors and fabrics (that's how they keep them in stock). You'll also find them expanding again. With Airstream trailers, The Kithaus and a new Tools for Living line, look for new "Tools" stores to be popping up soon to deliver a knockout punch to MoMA's and design shops everywhere.Started by the San Francisco modern furniture mafia in the late nineties, DWR is great modern antidote to Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel when you need one.
Specializing in classic modern designs, the once strictly-catalog vendor now has
three six SEVEN stores in New York and is the local place to go for modern furniture staples -- sofas, beds, and an impressive selection of "seating solutions."
1. their service is excellent as they aim to please, but
2. their collection is fairly stable and not a great deal of quirkyness sneaks in, and
3. their prices are on the high side. If you dig around you can find many of their pieces elsewhere for less, but you won't get the service and the quick shipping.
