Basics: The mission of this site is summed up in its name: Design Within Reach. It offers furniture and lighting from names synonymous with great design: Aalto, Breuer, Le Corbusier, Eames, Mies, Nelson, Starck and more. Selections are about equally divided between major mid-century modern masters and European superstars.
Prices range from Philippe Starck's $66 hourglass ''Princess Aha Stool'' to a $5,950 black leather ''Sling Sofa'' by George Nelson. Easy to search by category, designer or price range.
Bonus: The site offers a mini-education in classic design, with bios on designers and quick backgrounders on the history, materials and production of offered pieces.
Caveat: Prices are lower than list at many retailers and through design centers, but shipping costs, especially for ''white glove'' handling, can be steep.
