In case you haven't already noticed, I am incorporating more of a modern + contemporary flair to my style. As always style evolves and tastes change but currently, I'm on this super mod kick. After my time at 51fifteen, I decided that I needed to get some Warren Platner chairs STAT. I've got my eye on a set like this for a dining room install.
Platner chairs aren't new or fresh on the scene by any means. Warren Platner was an architect and interior designer who used to work for Saarinen's firm back in the 60's. Then, as many talented designers who work under geniuses, he went on his own and partnered with Knoll to create these marvelous chairs along with ottomans and tables. I think it was around '66. In the super mid century modern fashion. To. Die. For.
They really have never been out of style, I swear I see these chairs in the most amazing interiors. From super contemporary to even bohemian glam spaces and they make such a fantastic statement. You can find them everywhere now, they even make affordable knock offs. You can also get original vintage and get them redone in your own fabric.
Take a look at some of my favorite vignettes.
