Luxury Design Trend: Famous Furniture

Fall is the time to stop your focus on outdoor furniture and start thinking about furniture pieces you have indoors. Consider adding the luxury design trend of signature chairs to add sophistication and structure to your interior design. Your architect friends will be extremely impressed.

Architects take a seat

Famous Architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe were among those who put their pencils down to stop designing amazing architecture and focus on what they were sitting on.

Each of these famous architects designed contemporary chairs everyone could easily distinguish for years to come. As a result, the Eames chair and the Barcelona chair are the staple furniture pieces people want in their homes.

Because they were so well-designed, they eventually became art pieces for people to collect and keep intact to preserve the quality of the chairs. This led to the now luxury design trend of furniture as art. Don’t expect to feel the comfort of these famous chairs—often, owners want to preserve them for their value.

Beware of imitators

Due to the rarity of these famous furniture pieces and the demand for them, imitators have created a black market for fake “designer” chairs.
