Dwell, the domain magazine that trades in images of sleekly modern homes, has launched a store full of beautiful pieces that are probably too expensive for you to buy. The offerings run the gamut of things you can feasibly fit in your home and include bedding, furniture, art, clocks, indoor planters, fans, mirrors, office supplies, lighting, kid's items, flooring and vases. Said Dwell's president, "As the arbiters of modern design we have a unique ability to offer our millions of loyal design enthusiasts a single destination for products-in-context. Contextual commerce is key today, and seamless accessibility is the online embodiment of what it means to be at home in the modern world."
The shop, which is kind of like a highly-edited Moss crossed with Design Within Reach, is chock-full of dream buys, like this elegant ceramic and wood indoor planter that retails for $1,095, this retro-modern couch for
$4,200 and this beautiful brass and walnut candle holder that's going for $1,905. There are more-affordable indulgences for the design-crazy, though, like the coolest tissue box ever ($50), a brightly-colored stapler ($39), these quirky angled wastebins ($75) and this boldly-printed floor mat ($98).
