Design Within Reach Lust List

Never wish you hadn't taken your vision right to the end.  Make a bold statement.
Roger Banks-Pye

While having my daughter's birthday dinner last month, I realized that Design Within Reach had moved in right next door to the restaurant.  Let me mention, this is in an area I shop all the time. Uh oh. This could be highly inspiring or highly dangerous.  I am crazy for mid century design and am not above hanging in their store, drooling all over the furniture.  

I have compiled a lust list of some of the most fab things your eyes have seen in a long time. Be prepared because all this beauty at once might hurt a little.  Let's begin with Big Daddy - the ultimate in mid century loungers.  This chair says, "I'm highly successful but too cool to care". It is a classic investment piece and will remain on my wishlist until I am an old broad with knees too bad to actually use it.

Modo || This chandelier is part industrial|part glam which is why it is so perfectly perfect for my dining room.

Drum || The fact that this side table is shiny and gold is reason enough to make my list.  It is clean and simple but has tons of drama.  It also comes in a coffee table which is equally as beautiful. Although, it's side table(s) or coffee table - never both.

Satellite || I give you my word - I will work my little fingers to the bone to have these sconces in my home this year.  I am all about the sputnik style chandelier but have never seen it in a sconce before. Wow!

Barcelona || Anything named Barcelona has to be sexy.  This streamlined, masculine daybed is a must-have when you need to fill a large space but don't want to impede your fabulous view.

Platner || While I would LOVE a set for my kitchen, I would also settle for just one fantastic accent chair.  The design has so much personality and pairs well with any style furniture. Oh, and did I mention you can have it upholstered in mohair.

Have a beautiful day,


  1. Mark and I stopped in there this past summer! That sconce is the everything...


Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing your thoughts. :)
