This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2’’ Canadian Black Walnut accented with Ebony plugs. This is a medium version ( 5’ 7’’ – 5’ 11’’ ).
This chair has 2 unique features that make it stand out even next to one of our other rocking chairs.
First the leg/headrest design borrows more form the Maloof design with legs extending like horns and with a more stylized bottom curve to the headrest but still using a coopered headrest to keep the grain lines matched to the seat and arms.
Second we used a beautiful piece of Zebra wood, sliced it into 2.29mm thick grain matched pieces and used it as the rear lamination to add a very unique contrast to the Walnut.
- form fitting flexible back braces
- coopered headrest
- exposed Maloof joinery
- hand carved seat, arms, and joints
- Beautiful grain matched Zebra wood highlighted back braces
What we noticed is that doing the headrest like this it adjusts the sizing, I would say the tallest a person should be for this chair is 5’ 9, because the headrest swoops down not up like our previous chairs.
Were calling this Inspiration 2.0 what a beautiful chair! Oh so comfortable the best yet in my opinion which does not matter to much as we’ve only built 10 of these, maybe when i’ve built 100 it will have some weight behind it.
Thanks everyone for having a look
