Is it just me, or is one of my most favorite chairs making a resurgence? For years I've always been a super fan of Louis XVI chairs. And when they're upholstered with something striking like a black leather, I take notice. Lately, I've seen them on (or should it be in?) several house tours. What gives, is it just me who's noticing?

Not to be a total copy cat, but I am ready for a real dining room, so that I may too set these around my table. How I love their traditional, masculine, chic nature. And if you break it down, the black leather Louis XVI chair is the perfect embodiment of my style in chair form... classic with an edge.

Don't they always say it, that history repeats itself and trends reappear. In the words of Iris Apfel "If you hang around long enough, everything comes back." These black leather Louis chairs have been around for a long time, Albert Hadley, often used them in his designs, and now, Nate Berkus keeps this style in his back pocket too.  Aren't they fabulous!?
