1 Piece, 3 Ways: Dessin Fournir Leather Barrel Chairs

For our next iteration of one piece three ways, we’re tackling one of our favorite pieces currently in our inventory: a pair of gorgeous Dessin Fournir leather barrel chairs. These chairs are the epitome of luxury, originally retailing for nearly $5,000 apiece. In case you aren’t familiar with the Dessin Fournir brand, it’s a to-the-trade line that’s handmade in the U.S., and known for it’s couture-quality upholstery and case-goods. And, fun fact, while the company counts the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Elton John as clients, it’s actually based in the founder’s hometown of Plainville, Kansas.

Besides being of the utmost quality, these chairs are also extremely versatile style-wise, meaning you’ll never have a hard time finding a place for them. Here are just three ways we imagined styling them in different spaces throughout the home.

The Entryway
Flank a console table with the pair of chairs to create an entryway that’s both pretty and practical (the chairs are the perfect spot to sit when putting on your shoes or helping little ones get out the door).
