Medallion Chair

 

The famous designer revisited the Medaillon chair, a symbol of the Louis XVI style dear to Christian Dior, in his refined style. “Miss Dior,” his new version of the designer’s iconic piece of furniture, is a creation “with timeless elegance” in 100% aluminum, available with or without armrests and in different shades (black, pink copper, or gold), satin or polished.
