Designed by Benjamin Cherner, the Cherner Lounge Arm Chair is defined by its welcoming, curved shape that recalls the original 1958 Cherner chair design by Benjamin’s father, Norman Cherner. The molded plywood shell, solid bentwood arm, and laminated wood base flow fluidly into one another, which gives the lounge chair an organic, calming sensibility. With a pronounced woodgrain and unobtrusive shape, the chair is an excellent accompaniment to contemporary interiors. The chair back and seat echo each other with rounded tear drop shapes, and they are carefully shaped to respond to the sitter’s body for maximum comfort. The Cherner Lounge Arm Chair can be used on its own in a living room or study, or can be placed with other Cherner Lounge Chairs and the Cherner Ottoman for a cohesive and complimentary interior space.
Designed by Benjamin Cherner, the Cherner Ottoman is defined by its welcoming, gently curved shape. The molded plywood top and laminated wood base flow fluidly into one another, which gives the ottoman an organic, calming sensibility.

Designed by Alyson Fox in collaboration with Hawkins New York, the Shapes Dhurrie Rug is based off of Alyson’s artwork, which is largely inspired by the work of Josef Albers and the paintings of Piet Mondrian. Bold lines and geometric shapes— large rectangles embracing hexagons, pentagons, and triangles— define the piece in a violet, navy, gold, ivory, and grey palette. The heathered colors of the woven rug make the hues appear more muted, which makes the Shapes Dhurrie Rug a versatile floor covering that adapts nicely to an existing décor, and can accent a variety of interior spaces.
George Nelson’s Bubble Lamps were first conceived in 1947. Since they were first produced, the Bubble Pendant Lamps have been a staple of modern lighting, and can be used in a variety of interior spaces. The simple, sculptural shapes are constructed from an innovative plastic that coats a steel wire-frame. The result is a lighting fixture that eliminates glare and provides powerful yet diffused light. This type of light is unique to the Bubble Lamp material, making Nelson’s Pendant Lamps a distinctive lighting source. Each Bubble Lamp is constructed one-by-one, and is built according to George Nelson’s original specifications. The Ball Criss Cross Pendant is an authentic member of the Bubble Lamp family, and can be used over a dining room table, or with other Bubble Lamps to create a graphic, sculptural display in a living room.

From there, the 100 percent cotton paper is mounted and framed in an ash wood frame. Each print in the series, like this Blue Horse, can be used on its own, or coordinated with other prints in the series to create a menagerie of wall art. Each limited edition print is exclusive to the Dwell Store and is signed on the left side of the print, and numbered on the right.
