Design Within Reach – Accessories

What a great store! It looks like a studio with beautiful and original pieces from famous  designers like Ted Boerner, Giorgio Soressi, Flemming Busk, Charles and Ray Eames, Jane Risom and others. Everything looks very expensive, but I recommend this store for a window-shopping exercise and the occasional floor sample or sale item. Give attention to accessories. Last week, l bought wonderful “Puntino Demitasse Cups” designed by Giulio Capellini for just $27.00. Even in an expensive store, you can buy some pieces for affordable prices. If you don’t have enough money to buy a sofa designed by Giorgio Soressi, don’t buy it! Buy a couch that’s less expensive and dress it with accessories such as pillows or a throw designed by Ivan Pratt. This will make your living room more attractive to the eye. Below, I have some examples of Design Within Reach accessories. If you ever dreamed of having extremely well-made pieces, this is the time for your long-term dream to come true.   Reiko Kaneko Terra-Cotta Platter After training at Central Saint Martins, …
