Design Within Reach Returning to Time of Financial Concerns?

0515dwr.jpg

If you read this site with any regularity (and you really should because we’re pretty terrific), you’ve likely noticed our interest in the business side of Design Within Reach. It’s been something of a roller coaster these past couple of years, with some financial troubles and management changes affecting them in 2006. Then, in 2007, it seemed like they were really turning things around in a hurry, pushing even harder most recently with their continued expansion plans and warehouse sales. So we were really rooting for them. But now, with the economy taking spit baths and roasting canned beans over a trash fire, we just ran across their third quarter financial report and it seems like they’re taking some worrisome loses again in nearly every sector of the business. So we’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out in these most serious times of great uncertainty.
