My father once said to me that he always wanted a chair like this one, so I went home and built this one for him.

Wonder what Stickley Audi sells one for? I can’t tell you for sure because their prices are so high they won’t publish them, but I would guess at about $2500.00 . Wonderful job – a real classic!

fyi, i’ve also seen these referred to as “praire chairs”, but i can see how “cube chair” would also be fitting.

Beautiful mission chair. And I don’t know what Stickley sells one for, but I can tell you that the quality of modern day Stickely could not match the quality of THIS chair. I really like the color of leather on this chair. Nice soothing color match for the chair. I wish I had this to go with my even arm settle. :)

For some reason that one doesn’t look nearly as comfortable as the other but it sure does look stylish. I love the colors of both leather and wood and you have done a wonderful job on it.

Helluva- you are right about the comfort differential. I have a beautiful even arm settle- (like a long cube chair) and noone ever sits in it! They sit on the old drop arm sometimes, but mostly they head for the ratty old futon. My kids are always complaining that I should get a r’real’ couch/sofa. LOL So I guess that’s why the ex was so interested in retaining the Morris chair… His comfort was a primary concern. ; )

By the way a modern day Stickley settle sells for about $3,500 to $4,000!!!
