Design Within Reach to open in Canada

San Francisco-based specialty retailer Design Within Reach (DWR) will open its first location outside the United States, a 4,700-square-foot studio in Toronto.

The store is slated to open on Feb. 23, and a grand opening celebration is planned for March 13. According to the company, it will showcase a selection of outdoor furniture, bedroom and workspace designs, seating, lighting, rugs and “other modern items for the home or office.”

DWR CEO Ray Brunner explained, "Strong demand from Canadian residents and international tourists for well-designed products made Toronto the logical choice for DWR's first international location."

DWR’s studio stores are located in major metropolitan areas, including New York, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In all, the company has 67 retail studios in the United States and Canada.
