Windsor Smith Elegant Chair ($1700)
“I love an arm on a dining chair, it invites you to push back a little and linger. I designed this lovely blue velvet chair with this in mind.” — Windsor Smith
Kelly Wearstler Studio Dining Chair ($2500)
“My Studio Dining Chair has such a sexy, glamorous aura. Its curved, burnished bronze frame creates a distinctive, elegant form. I have it upholstered in a soft, luxurious cowhide in one of the conference rooms at my studio.” — Kelly Wearstler
Room & Board Lira Chair ($499)
“I am drawn to the architectural feel of this chair. The clean lines of the metal mixed with the upholstery makes a great juxtaposition of modern and comfortable. It comes in an array of finishes and fabrics, but always looks clean and contemporary.” — Ryan Korban
Todd Alexander Romano The Louis XV Style Dining Chair (price upon request)
“This chair is classic Louis XV, and I love it because of its curvaceous shape. It can add nice contrast to a rectangular table, and an upholstered back and seat are always pleasers.” — Miles Redd
