The graceful lines of Norman Cherner's molded plywood chairs have made them a classic for over 50 years. They've appeared in homes, restaurants, and hotels around the world, particularly since his sons reissued them in 1999. It's no wonder — their sweeping lines pair well with both modern and traditional dining room tables, desks and vanities, bedroom sets and on and on.

While Cherner chairs are definitely an investment piece, their beauty and versatility ensure that they won't be trend pieces. As each of these rooms show, the chairs can be incorporated into different decorating styles and used as everything from side chairs around a mismatched table to a extra seat beside a floral couch.
