    The Knoll Petal Table was designed by Richard Schultz in 1960. He cites Queen Anne’s Lace as his inspiration for this delicate outdoor table with its flower-like top sprouting from the elegant pedestal base. Each “petal” expands and contracts independently, ensuring stability in changing weather.

    Designed by Richard Schultz for Knoll as its first outdoor line, the white metal frames of the iconic 1966 Collection share the cool structural and material expression of Foggo and Thomas’ architecture. Together, the building and furniture write an ode to modern living, celebrating the blissful combination of proportion and sunlight.

  • Be Original - a commitment to authenticity

    GR Shop.com and Gabriel Ross have joined with hundreds of like-minded people and organizations to demonstrate our commitment to authenticity in design. Be Original is an organization that supports original design and its creators. Our membership confirms our ongoing dedication to inform, educate and influence the public on the value of original design.

    The Barcelona Chair, arguably one of the most famous chairs of the last century, was designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929, and it is one of the most knocked off chairs in the market place. The Barcelona Chair, arguably one of the most famous chairs of the last century, was designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929, and it is one of the most knocked off chairs in the market place. Here are two of the original chairs, from 1929, in the Vitra Design Museum in Basel, Switzerland.

    The Barcelona Chair, arguably the most famous chair of the last century, was designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929, is one of the most knocked off chairs in the market place. Companies that produce licensed designs (such as Knoll, Herman Miller and Cassina) have been forced to become more assertive with stamping and labeling their products to distinguish them from their counterfeit cousins.

    Ross Taylor, owner of GRShop.com and Gabriel Ross, strongly champions Be Original and its work, "GRShop.com and Gabriel Ross has a long history of supporting original design and has been a supporting member of Be Original for several years now. Our tag line "Always Authentic" pretty much sums it up. We feel strongly that originality crosses all price points and if the authentic item that you covet is not in the budget, then seek out something authentic that is. There is an industrial designer out there who would love to have your support."

    You have all seen, and maybe some have unintentionally purchased, a knockoff or a fake. There is a good rule of thumb when buying new or vintage design classics: if there is no mention or markings of the manufacturer, the piece was probably not made by the original or licensed manufacturer. In other words — it's a knock-off.

    Check out Be Original Americas' web page. They encourage you to contact them with photos of examples of original designs that are being copied and sold in the marketplace.

  • Knoll Classics Sale - 15% off + free delivery

    The Knoll Classics Sale has begun. Until February 28th you can save 15% and receive free delivery on the iconic designs of Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, Florence Knoll, Mies van der Rohe and others.  They are as exciting today as they were at their introduction.

    Florence Knoll humbly referred to her furniture designs as “meat and potatoes” — filler between the standout pieces of Bertoia, Mies, and Saarinen. 65 years later her furniture is anything but filler. Her attention to detail, eye for proportion, and command of the modern aesthetic resulted in some of the most celebrated furniture of the modern era.

    The Florence Knoll Collection

    Florence Knoll humbly referred to her furniture designs as “meat and potatoes” — filler between the standout pieces of Bertoia, Mies, and Saarinen. Sixty-five years later her furniture is anything but filler. Her attention to detail, eye for proportion, and command of the modern aesthetic resulted in some of the most celebrated furniture of the modern era.

    Designed by Eero Saarinen in 1957, With the Pedestal Collection, Eero Saarinen resolved the "ugly, confusing, unrestful world" underneath tables and chairs. The collection is a defining accomplishment of modern design and a timeless addition to your home—a true classic.

    The Eero Saarinen Collection

    From the late 1940s through the 1950s, Eero Saarinen designed many of the most recognizable Knoll pieces, including the Tulip Chair and Pedestal Table, the Womb Chair, and the Executive Seating Collection. His designs used modern materials in graceful ways, helping establish the identity of Knoll during their formative years. Today they contribute greatly to the Knoll Classics Collection.

    The Mies van der Rohe Collection

    Renowned architect Mies van der Rohe mentored a young Florence Knoll while she was a student at Illinois Institute of Technology. Florence has always credited Mies as her most influential instructor and, in 1948, Mies granted Knoll exclusive rights to produce his furniture, including the Barcelona Collection and the Brno Chair.

    The Harry Bertoia Collection

    Hans and Florence never demanded that Bertoia design furniture when they gave him a studio in an early Knoll factory. They simply asked that he show them if he arrived at something interesting. He arrived at something outstanding. Introduced in 1952, the Bertoia Collection remains one of the great achievements of modern design.

    The Warren Platner Collection

    Originally introduced by Knoll in 1966, the Platner Collection represents the designer's attempt to infuse modernism with "the kind of decorative, gentle, graceful kind of design that appeared in period style, like Louis XV". In celebration of the the 50th anniversary, the Platner Collection is now available with an 18k gold-plated finish.

    The Marcel Breuer Collection

    While at the Bauhaus, Marcel Breuer revolutionized the modern vocabulary with his tubular steel furniture. His first designs — inspired by bicycle construction and fabricated using the techniques of local plumbers — are among the most influential and important of the modern movement.

    The Jens Risom Collection

    Jens Risom joined the Hans Knoll Furniture Company in the early 1940s as the sole designer of interiors and furniture. Working ingeniously within the constraints of wartime material shortages, Risom designed his eponymous collection of chairs and tables using essentially scraps of wood and rejected nylon straps from parachute production.

    The George Nakashima Collection

    Consistent with his renowned handcrafted work, the furniture Nakashima designed for Knoll in the 1940s balances the modern aesthetic with a deep respect for the inherent beauty of natural wood.

    The Pollock Collection

    Both Charles Pollock chair designs for Knoll demonstrate his command of line, form and material. The 657 Arm Chair was reintroduced in 2014 to rejoin the Executive Chair and complete the Pollock Collection.
