Furniture designers rarely become as well-known as actors and actresses or the celebrities behind top selling fashion lines. However, their designs often accumulate popularity through the years, even after the designer has passed away. Some dining chairs have become icons, representing peaks in design history. These chairs are replicated by hundreds of companies each year, with originals selling for thousands of dollars at auction. Adding some of these iconic dining chairs to your home will add a touch of class that every guest will recognize when they enter. If you can`t afford the originals, a high quality reproduction will be just as good.
