Wayfair.com, the largest online retailer of home furnishings and decor, announced it has acquired DwellStudio, a lifestyle retailer known for groundbreaking design and impeccable quality in modern home furnishings with expertise in upholstery, case goods, furniture and textiles for baby, kids and home. T

he acquisition further strengthens Wayfair.com's leadership position in home retail by adding a popular lifestyle brand with core competencies in original design and product development. The deal will accelerate Wayfair.com's launch of proprietary product lines and lifestyle brands in 2013 while addressing new market segments.

Under the Wayfair.com umbrella, DwellStudio will operate as a standalone brand joining Joss & Main and AllModern.com to satisfy increasing demand for unique shopping experiences in the home furnishings space.

Wayfair.com's core strengths in selection, service, internet technologies and logistics will drive the rapid growth of DwellStudio. At the same time, Wayfair.com will have access to DwellStudio's world-class product design team for the development of original product lines and new lifestyle brands.

"DwellStudio has built a following of devoted customers who enthusiastically identify with a certain lifestyle and modern design aesthetic," noted Niraj Shah, CEO and co-founder of Wayfair.com. "We look forward to expanding the DwellStudio brand through our world class e-commerce capabilities while staying true to DwellStudio's strategy of developing and delivering trend-setting products of exceptional quality to a growing customer base through a large number of partners."

"We are thrilled because Wayfair.com is truly transforming the way people shop for home goods and furniture through innovative e-commerce solutions, extraordinary customer service and state of the art logistics. They have the best backend in the business," noted Christiane Lemieux, CEO, founder and creative director of DwellStudio.  "Our design, merchant and product development teams are so excited to help fuel Wayfair.com's move into new market segments and additional proprietary product categories. At the same time, we want our customers to know that we remain dedicated to building the DwellStudio brand with a continued commitment to beautiful original design and impeccable construction. It's the perfect marriage of style and substance."

"DwellStudio is an ideal addition to Wayfair.com's portfolio of brands – joining Joss & Main, AllModern.com and Wayfair.com to meet market demand for distinctive modern design in bedding, furnishings and decor, with a special emphasis on products for baby and children," added John Mulliken, Wayfair.com's SVP of strategic initiatives. "The acquisition is a logical step on Wayfair.com's path to becoming the dominant retailer in home. We will enable DwellStudio to scale itscore business at a much greater pace while staying true to its design DNA and commitment to the highest quality products for home."
