Made from quarter sawn white oak, dye stain and shellac finish. Leather upholstery. Completed in June of 2015. This is an interpretation of the classic L. & J. G. Stickley No. 220 Settle. That piece uses frame and panels for the sides and backs, where I opted for rows of spindles, and then created a love seat to match. I’d always loved this design, and on a leap of faith, near the end of the build, we got rid of our existing old sofa and love seat on the hopes these would be comfortable. They were! This was the first time I worked with an upholsterer, and worked with a a great local shop that did and excellent job.
I blogged about the build here and on my site at:
Thanks for looking!
