The Latest Target x Dwell Collab Offers Modern Finds Without the Vintage Pricetag
If Saarinen pedestal tables, Knoll Womb chairs and atomic light fixtures adorn your home, you love modern furniture, but maybe not the hefty price tag. Thankfully, Target and Dwell have come to the rescue. Target is always working with designers like Nate Berkus and Emily Henderson to bring great design at a reasonable price. Their latest collab, Modern by Dwell Magazine, captures modernism beautifully and affordably. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your space or score the perf statement chair, there’s a lot to love in this collection, which will be available online and in select Target stores starting December 27.
“With Modern by Dwell Magazine, we’re excited to introduce modern design to more people than ever,” say Dwell’s co-Creative Directors of Product Design, Chris Deam and Nick Dine. At these prices? Mission accomplished! The aesthetic is mid-century sleek and priced to please. The lounge chair ($250) is reminiscent of the Eero Saarinen executive armchair, but with a tilt-back, lounge-ready appeal.
“With global trends moving toward more Scandinavian-modern organic forms and simplicity… this is a really interesting and viable intersection for us to explore more deeply,” Mark Tritton, Executive Vice-President and Chief Merchandising Officer for Target, told Fastco Design.
You can see the Scandi influence in the dining table ($330) and dining chair ($120). Round tables are a small-space dweller’s dream, with their ability to create a dining area anywhere you want to place it.
Colorful metal lounge chairs and ottomans ($270/set) that feature sparse, industrial lines recall everyone’s fave iconic Acapulco chairs, which are so on-trend right now. You’ll want to nab these versatile pieces as soon as they hit the floor, because they’ll look as great indoors as they will on the deck.
Mark your calendars with a double happy face on December 27, because these sleek modern pieces are priced to move and they’ll go fast.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
