I’ve mentioned before that if you want to see me act like a hungry, tired five year old, just take me furniture shopping. I’ve only been banned from one furniture store, but that was nearly 20 years ago, and I’m sure the picture of me taped to the cash register no longer looks like me. Now I know why a lot of stores have treats available for kids (usually the sugar high hits by the time the family is gone). One store that I actually kind of like is Design Within Reach. The spaces are usually pretty small compared to other furniture stores, and they have really unique stuff. Design Within Reach is headquartered in Stamford, CT, but they have stores all across the country (and most of their jobs are in stores). I always thought the “within reach” part of the name meant affordable, but stuff at Design Within Reach is pretty expensive (though they’re much lower than a lot of other places). Apparently “within reach” means “authentic modern design” that is “not found elsewhere” and is “in stock.” That last one is a big deal. There’s nothing more frustrating than plunking down a huge amount of money only to hear that your couch will arrive in 3-9 months.

Careers Within Reach

One of the things that I really like about Design Within Reach is that their stores are inviting. They welcome you to walk around, touch, and sit down–they even allow dogs in the store. The company got its start in 1999 when “founder Rob Forbes tried to furnish his apartment with the clean, simple classics he’d come to appreciate while living in London.” He found the process extremely frustrating, so he bought 20 containers of furniture and started sending out catalogs. That’s quite a leap, but it worked. Now Design Within Reach has dozens of stores across 19 states, Washington DC, and Canada. While I don’t see many corporate positions on Design Within Reach’s Careers page, they do have Studio Account Executive positions in the following locations:

They want people with education or at least an interest in Design and/or Architecture. There’s also a Virtual Studio Account Executive position available at the Stamford, CT headquarters.
