Design Within Reach Expands Collection with Australian Designer Sarah Ellison

Exclusively Available at DWR in the U.S.

Float Sofa by Sarah Ellison in Piccolo

Building on Design Within Reach’s exclusive U.S. partnership with Australian designer Sarah Ellison, a new assortment of her luxurious upholstery, seating and occasional tables has debuted as a part of DWR’s Spring 2023 introductions.

Inspired by the idea of a cozy conversation pit, the Float Sofa and Sectional collection is designed to be an ultra-comfortable, laid-back space for gathering with friends and family. With its generous deep seat, angled arms, and puffy channeling, this inviting collection references the 1970s, but in ways that feel right for today. Float is expertly upholstered in velvet or bouclé upholstery. Its rich velvet comes in a unique chocolate brown color, piccolo, that Sarah Ellison created in partnership with the Pantone Color Institute.

Yoko Coffee Table by Sarah Ellison

The Yoko Coffee Table makes a statement with its playful juxtaposition of a plank top and bold spherical feet. While the design is grand and sculptural, the fact that it’s crafted in oak or walnut gives it a warm and inviting aesthetic.

The Piscina Collection strikes the perfect marriage between the tonality of natural stone and the contemporary look of a high-gloss finish. Ellison chose Turkish cosmos marble for the top because it works beautifully with the warm tones of the beige-grey glossy finish on the legs. This biomorphic form with smooth, rounded edges was inspired by the shapes of pooling water. The Piscina Collection includes a side table or coffee table option.

L-R: Piscina Tables by Sarah Ellison, Arch Chair by Sarah Ellison

With a rounded form fully upholstered from top to bottom, the Arch Chair brings modernity and comfort to any table. This sturdy chair stands on thick column-like legs that echo the arched chair back. “My collections are all about sculptural shapes and bold proportions,” says Ellison. The Arch Chair is available in caramel, fawn, or piccolo velvet, ivory bouclé, or tan leather.

The collection is now available at dwr.com and at DWR studios across the country.
