I want to congratulate the designer on a job well done. Sleek, minimal and sturdy, the Avallon Raven Black Leather Dining Chair is a study in elegant simplicity at its very best. There is nothing extraneous about this design. This is a super basic chair that is well-made and looks great in any situation. It has made my dining room look tight, efficient, practical and sophisticated. In my view, this product is an instant classic.
