The Deal: American Modern chaise 50% off
at Design Within Reach's semiannual sale

March 12, 2010 |  6:02 am

An updated version of George Nelson's iconic 1948 daybed is among the many discounted items at Design Within Reach's semiannual sale.

The American Modern Chaise has clean lines and a simple maple frame. The bolster can be removed to use the full 75-inch length for sleeping, or an additional arm with bolster (sold separately for $225, down from $450) can be added to give the chaise more of a couch look. The cushions are upholstered in Maharam Messenger fabric made from 78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester and 7% nylon -- and the covers come off for cleaning.

Normally $1,800, the chaise is now on sale for $900 through Tuesday. A similar Nelson-inspired American Modern Daybed -- with two cushions on the back -- is also 50% off ($1,050, down from $2,100). In addition, Design Within Reach is offering free "White Glove" delivery service (a savings of $299) to those who tally up $2,000.
