This Morris Chair is my custom design that I made back in 2007. After building Morris Chairs for the past 12 years i wanted to design a chair that was a Brian Brace signature piece that was decorative ,but functional. The arms are solid steam bent along with the back slats. The tree is hand carved making each one just a little bit different on each chair.

A very nice rework of the basic Morris chair design. The fabric in photo 4 really goes well with the wood (which is cherry ?).

Nailed it! The tree yes, but the curve on the leg is very nice.

I agree with MonteCristo, the fabric in the piece in picture 4 is spot on. Great work!

Great looking chair. I love the trees and the nice curves on the legs, front rail and arms. Nice looking dog to.

I saw this some months ago when I was searching the web for some Greene & Greene style inspiration.
Glad you’ve joined LJ’s Brian.

Love it!
I am sitting in a reclining Morris chair right now, but yours is nicer;the hand carved tree is an awesome idea.
