This is the Morris Chair I made last winter. Also made the cushions in a upholstery class I was taking. Chair is QSWO from plans off the web site.

I really like this chair. Come to think of it, if the upholstery were just a tad darker it would match perfectly in my living room.

Thanks for everyone’s comments. I must agree it is very comfortable!! And I also love the style. I’m slowly replacing everything in our home with Arts & Craft pieces.

Nicely done. Do you have some photos of the ottoman that just shows in the third photo? Is it leather or vinyl?
