Never out of style, Marcel Breuer's Cesca Chair
has recently become the status symbol of dining chairs. It's one of those pieces that lets design-o-philes signal silently to the other members of their species. If you know, you know. The cane seats and metal legs won't compete with other wood finishes and add a nostalgic note for those of us who grew up in the era of terry cloth halter tops, roller skates, and feathered hair. Back in the day, the chairs said "we are eating in the kitchen because we are laid back and stylish, not because we are the help."
