In an attempt to add a chair which is more suitable for an older person to sit in, this is what I have come up with. It is made 1 1/8 cypress using all 18-8/304 stainless fasteners with one mortise and tenon to join the back leg assembly to the skirt boards. I am going to try to start selling them in the spring of 2013 along with the coffee table and a love seat version. Made one for my wife and she really likes it so in it goes to my product mix. The prototypes took me about a day each and hope to increase production up to two a day.

(16 Sept 2012) I have updated this post and added a shot of the Sette.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Anyone know where I can obtain cushions other than retail stores with some quality at a fair price?
