Iconic dining chairs
I’ve long loved unexpected furniture pairings. Placing a beautifully designed chair from one of the mid-century modern greats with a dining table isn’t a new concept. I’ve had my mind buried in the idea all morning while searching for a client’s perfect dining table companion. Here are some favorites along with the designer’s name. A number of these are available new or as originals and can be found on sites such as First Dibs, Etsy and Ebay

Saarinen – Tulip Chair 

Marcel Breuer – Cesca Chair

Michael Thonet – Bentwood chair 1950’s reproductions. The original was designed in the 1800’s.

Warren Platner – Platner arm chair

I WOULD love a brass set of these someday for a dining room. 
 Saarinen – Executive chair

 Thayer Coggin by Milo Baughman – brass leg chairs

Ray and Charles Eames – Eiffel Chair

 Milo Baughman metal Chippendale Chairs (are a favorite)
Harry Bertoia for Knoll dining chair
