DWR Textiles.

Basket Weave | Broad Weave | Cotton Twill | Cotton Velvet
Ducale Wool | Lama Tweed | Textured Stripe

Design Within Reach textiles are created by one of the largest and
most widely respected mills in Italy. For nearly 60 years, this family-
run business has been producing exceptional textiles by blending
design, research, cutting-edge technologies and artisanal techniques.
We chose to work with this mill because we know our customers
expect and deserve the special care and commitment it puts into
every bolt of fabric.

Basket Weave

When it comes to warp and weft, Basket Weave reigns supreme. This crisscross pattern is as old as the hills, practiced and perfected over generations who owe their craft to the first person who had the bright idea to interlace threads. One couldn’t exist without the other, making warp and weft a story of teamwork, of neighbor helping neighbor. Talk about harmonious living.

Broad Weave

Like a basket weave that’s been hitting the gym, Broad Weave isn’t afraid to flex its muscles. A sturdy fabric with a textured appeal, Broad Weave is like adding spice to spicy food or turning up the volume when the music is already loud. “This one goes to 11,” one might say.

Cotton Twill

Made from pompoms of white fluffy material growing around the barbed seeds of the cotton plant, this is a soft fabric that magically emerges from a thorny shrub. That rough upbringing might be what gives Cotton Twill its enduring character. A mix of street smarts and cozy charisma, Cotton Twill is a win-win in any situation.

Cotton Velvet

Favored by royalty and anyone else who likes the finer things, Cotton Velvet is a luxurious textile admired for its softness and luster. The juxtaposition of this sumptuous material on a simple modern frame is especially nice. The crisp outline of a modern sofa or chair is slightly softened – blurred, you could say – when velvet is the upholstery of choice. To you we say, “Bravo!”

Ducale Wool

The more you look at Ducale Wool, the more you see. The first color gives way to hints of lighter hues within its weave, blending together to create depth and warmth in one outstanding textile. Durable, elegant and as familiar as your favorite blazer – the one that makes you feel like a movie star – Ducale Wool is why the Italians are known for their expertise with fabric.

Lama Tweed

The power suit of fabrics, this is the go-to choice for a confident, smart look. A straight shooter, Lama Tweed knows how to hold a room’s attention and prefers to meet in person rather than via Skype or IM. In other words, this is a fabric you – and your furniture – have to experience firsthand to fully appreciate.

Textured Stripe

A fabric that can be theatrical without stealing the show, Textured Stripe is a combination of “jazz hands” and a high-four. It’s orderly yet colorful, business-minded yet creative – the Financial Times and the Sunday style section combined. Finally, a great stripe that’s flattering on every frame.

Maharam Divina Melange | Maharam Milestone

The work of a fourth-generation family-run
business, Maharam fabrics have been
available to – and loved by – DWR customers
for many years. Maharam Design Studio is
responsible for the development of an
extensive collection of innovative textiles
created through the exploration of material
and technique. Based in New York, Maharam
also works with the Danish company Kvadrat
to better serve the global design community.

Maharam Divina Melange

Did you know that a single wool fiber can bend 20,000 times without breaking? What’s also amazing is that even after that endurance test, it’s still the belle of the ball, elegantly upholstering furniture tall and wide. The combination of high performance and coziness in these cable-like strands is what makes wool so unique and so at home in your home.

Maharam Milestone

Twisted fibers intermixed with an eco-twist, Maharam Milestone is made with 78% post-industrial recycled polyester and has a PFOA-free stain-resistant finish. Contributing to its nonpattern pattern, each of its colors is a blend of two differently colored yarns, giving Milestone depth and texture that goes on for – you got it – miles. What could be better for a timeless classic?
