What is your design philosophy?

Great design is something to aspire to, but attainability shouldn’t be an afterthought. At Dims., we factor this in from the very beginning. Why create something universally beautiful that can only be appreciated by a select few? And why compromise on materials now, when great pieces should be enjoyed for generations? The Dims. answer: thoughtfully designed, responsibly made, fairly priced furniture. We call it “new-century modern.”

Who designed the Word Table Light?
