Have you noticed your local restaurants stepping up their seating lately? Los Angeles has had a recent flux of design chic eateries that seem to be withstanding the two year itch and it may just have something to do with the comfort and I don't mean the food. AK, a well known Abbot Kinney restaurant and home to chef (and owner) Conny Anderson, will sit you down on a Eero Saarinen (top left) in green. When dining at newly opened Tavern by Suzanne Goin, you can relax in the comfy and encompassing Tom Dixon Wing Chair (top right). The stubby legs and towering back attracted designer Jeffrey Alan Marks to use the Wing Chair to give each diner a sense of sophistication. Starck brainchild XIV by Michael Mina hosts both the William & Mary Wing Chair (bottom left) and the Fratelli Boffi swan sided armchair (bottom right) in addition to several other seating options. So if you need a break from the Pinkberry Starck designed La Marie Ghost chair, there is always XIV. Photo courtesy of Angeleno Interiors.
