No matter how many decor magazines I thumb through or how many house tours I see, there's one design that I love in just about every setting: the gorgeous sculpted steel wire of Warren Platner's 1960s furniture designed for Knoll. Your gaze can float right through the bases of these beauties, but rarely will, because they pack such a visual punch. It's this blend of versatility and major personality that really attracts my attention.
In image #6 above, designer Betsey Johnson's bubble-gum pink dining room, complete with a show-stopping chandelier and bold carpet, benefits from the sinuous basketry of the Platner chairs. And in the first image, the yellow-cushioned Platner chair serves as a statement piece--it's nearly as dramatic as the painting over the credenza. In all cases, the Platner chairs, stools, and tables are both welcoming and
eye-catching, a lovely combo.
