Reid Armchairfrom Design Within Reach$3,200Buy Now from Design Within Reach
Not just for sitting, the Reid Collection (2007) invites you to watch movies, take a nap or surf on a laptop. Maximizing the enjoyment of downtime is something Jeffrey Bernett is passionate about since he spends a fair bit of his free time doing extreme sports, and he held nothing back when creating Reid with design partner Nicholas Dodziuk. Unlike armchairs where you sit "on top" of the cushion, the experience of Reid is more of a "relaxed sit" thanks to down- and feather-wrapped foam. The back cushion is filled with a soft blend of down and feathers and the wide armrests offer support from elbow to wrist. This comfortable collection is upholstered in fabric or whole hides of the best leather, which means that there are very few seams. Made in U. S. A. Choose from two styles of legs: 1" (block style) and 4" (black powder-coated tubular style); the latter increases heights of all pieces by 3" for those who desire a higher sit. Pieces with 1" block legs come with legs attached; pieces with 4" tubular legs come with legs unattached (simple assembly required).
