I want to start off by saying I love Design Within Reach. But $165 for a felt office desk set? C’mon DWR, seriously? No really, what else does it comes with? Just the organizer, uh huh I see and you say it’s made of felt? The same felt I made last week when I accidentally tossed my wool sweater into the dryer? Ok. I don’t get it, I’m sorry I don’t care what kind of spin or what cute little story you come up with to describe the concept, only someone who has plenty of money to burn would spend $165 on a felt desk organizer. It seems DWR is becoming more and more out of reach to the general public. Now DWR you do realize that the phrase “Within Reach” means “somehow attainable” right? Just checking.
