Rob Forbes realized while living abroad in London that accessing authentic modern design was impossible for him; thus he founded Stamford, CT-based Design Within Reach in 1999 in order to make authentic modern designs more easily accessible. Today, they specialize in contemporary furniture and home decor made to stand the test of time – offering free design services such as in-home consultations and 3-D visualization.
DWR provides free shipping on first orders for new customers, in addition to regular sales events on major holidays and exclusive design coupons that apply across their entire site – beds, sofas and lighting can all be found! Their email newsletters often showcase new furniture designs or product highlights as well as sale alerts!
DWR is widely regarded as an outstanding source for modern furniture and home decor, receiving high marks for their selection of iconic designs, seamless delivery process and customer service. Customers also appreciate DWR’s dedication to high quality materials and craftsmanship; although some customers have noted higher pricing compared to discount offerings.
