This is the newest design from PhilipDesignLab. It is an adaptation of a Wingback Chair. Made from Solid Walnut. It was displayed in an art show last week and got great reviews.
There are a few issues that need resolved, such as; I am very tall (6’ 5”) so I designed this chair and it felt comfortable for me but many peoples legs do not touch the ground when they sit in it. Also because of the angle and the base it is slightly top heavy, not enough to be a problem but enough that if you lean on the top you feel it start to rock backwards. If a person is sitting in it it is very solid though. I plan to cut about 2-3 inches off the bottom which should remedy both problems.
I am thinking I need to make a matching ottoman.
