Relaxing chair made of red oak. I’m seating on it as we speak!
You can adjust the position of the back. 3 levels.

really nice chair, would this be something like a Morris Chair? it has a much lighter look to it, not bulky looking

wss, yes this could be considered a morris chair. there were actually dozens of different styles of morris chair. most as you are probably familiar with have slats or spindles on the side. they were also versions with open sides and some even had full panels. here is a stickley morris chair similar to dominiques chair i found on a quick search http://www.philtaylorantiques.com/images/antique/larger/00005.jpg

yes good catch guys, when drawing the plan i got inspired by a morris chair that i found on this very same website (LJ) i just added a back adjustment mechanism to have 3 different positions.
