Take a seat for the cure.
Or, as I was tempted to name this post.... Bid on a Bench For Boobs.
Join Design Within Reach® and Knoll® in the fight against breast cancer. Like many communities, DWR has been severely impacted by this disease. Support the search for a cure by bidding on this limited-edition Florence Knoll Bench,upholstered in pink Spinneybeck® Riva leather. All of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
We’ve provided pink Spinneybeck Riva leather to upholster this limited-edition Florence Knoll Bench, which was donated by Knoll. The bench is not available in this color and leather combination anywhere else. Originally designed in the mid 1950s, the Florence Knoll Bench is crafted with distinct, individually sewn leather squares, and the cushion sits atop a chrome base.
Bench will ship Fed-Ex ground at no additional cost.
