This is my first chair designed and built. I learned many things through this process…..chairs are the hardest to build, comfort is paramount, and the design has to fit all shapes and sizes of people. That’s a tall order.
Chair was inspired by an antique Morris Chair that we purchased more than 15 years ago in Dallas. I wanted a stately chair that could be paired with the Morris chair in a seating group for our living room.
Chair is constructed of mahogany with ebony plugs and wedges. Mortise and tenon construction with leather cushions. Finish was acheived with a potassium dichromate wash, followed by BLO, and Daly’s Pro Fin.
