(image via dedece.com)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.
