This is one of my signature Morris Chairs the Arbor Bow Arm Morris Chair with a Bow Ottoman in quartered oak with a dark finish. This piece is now in the Grovewood Gallery here in Asheville for everyone to view. I am hoping someone will have a new chair to bring home soon!

That’s just beautiful! The curved legs (bowed?) are elegant. The “tree” is unique and very well done.

I am sure it is the woodworking design and craftsmanship you are proud of, and understandably so, it is beautiful. But I also love your choice of upholstery.

How do you attach the arm to the sides? Just the through mortise? Or some pins too? Very nicely done.
