This October, for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Design Within Reach will auction off 10 Florence Knoll Benches, upholstered in pink Spinneybeck® Riva leather. The limited-edition benches will be available exclusively through auctions online and in DWR studios around the country and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
Originally designed in the 1950s, the Florence Knoll Bench, which retails at $3,463, is crafted with distinct, individually sewn leather squares, and the cushion sits atop a chrome base. This is a particularly unique fundraiser because the bench is not available in this color and leather combination anywhere else. And it's ravishing—trust me, I've seen it in person.
