"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."

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."
