Design Within Reach is a provider of distinctive modern design furnishings and accessories. The company markets and sells products from prominent designers, such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Charles and Ray Eames, through four highly integrated sales channels consisting of its studios, catalog, website and direct sales force. This seamless channel integration and use of a single, common inventory enable DWR to offer merchandise on an ‘in stock and ready to ship’ basis, versus traditional furnishings retailers, which typically require customers to wait weeks or even months for their products.
