If you're going to mix it up...

which I suggest you do! There's no better furniture series than that of Warren Platner to give you a classic modern twist (if you so desire). I am a big fan of all the pieces from this collection, which includes various tables and chairs..and even more so love when they are juxtaposed against a hand carved casegood or the like. If you can't picture it...here are some great examples I thought I'd share with you.

Well, do you love all things Platner now, like I do...

Fantastic. I have always wanted a little side table of this design. You are right that it mixes so well with woods and antiques. The last photo is a perfect example!

Thanks Brillant Asylum, you should get the side table they are the perfect size. I wish I could use the dining table in my home but it's just too big for my dining space.

These are all great, especially the bedside table in the Brian Hoy room (love that room) and the dining table in the last image, which fits in so beautifully with the wood and turquoise cushions.

I know (TIG) that Brian Hoy room is just perfect with the Platner side table :) Thanks for the comment!

I could not possibly agree more! this work is brilliant, I actually dreampt about having a dinning table, boy was I happy when I woke up, but then I realized it was a dream, but now I have a dream...ha

yes I do! I especially love the brilliant pendant light (the star burst) in the second photo. So dramatic. Image it in the bottom image with the gold foil walls. I love the idea of mixing modern/edgy with elegance. Its such an unexpected look.

Gorgeous pix!
