Design within reach of deep pockets

Bottega Montana-Design Within Reach skateboard

Design Within Reach is a catalog and store that sells “modern” furniture and household doodads that look cool and are often kind of expensive, but less so than typical modern furniture that you don’t buy from Ikea. Bottega Montana has produced an edition of 57 boards in collaboration with Design Within Reach. As far as I can tell, the collaboration consists of wood burning the DWR logo on the deck. If the name Bottega Montana sounds familiar, it might be because we covered another collaboration they did last year. These decks will actually be available for purchase in select Design Within Reach stores. What will they cost? Get ready to spend at least $400, judging by their current catalog. Think of them as family heirloom skateboards. They also reportedly have a Shepard Farey short board collaboration in the works. Update: Available online and priced at a whopping $798, down from $1000! See DWR

  5. skateboarding has become just a commodity…no longer a lifestyle.

  6. Haw haw! How many chumps are going to pony up for this bullshit? “That board is so fabulous, I simply must add that to my board collection.” Did they just buy all the Paul Smith bords at a deep discount, sand and rebrand them? Now if they were made out of vintage redwood surfboards…
