This is a bent arm morris chair. The dimensions are from a good friend of mine. It is for meditating. the side rails are elongated for leg crossing and the top is about 8” taller than normal so you can rest your head back. It is made from reclaimed barn wood (white oak) and curly red oak. The cushions are a micro fiber over viscoelastic foam.

-- It's only wood.

Very nice use for reclaimed wood. Would be nice even if it wasn’t reclaimed. Thanks for the post.

Rhett:
I like your version of the Morris chair. All of the Morris chairs I have see use some type of slats on the side. This looks cleaner and definitely custom. I have been looked at many versions of the Morris chair because I would like to build one. Your design is fantastic.
Do you have any more of that “barn wood”?

Nice job! That’s a great looking chair. I’m wondering how/where you did the cushions?

Nice job! I agree with BigBob, you design is definitely a custom build.

I really like your morros chair. I made one for my daughter but it had slats. It turned out quite nice and she is very pleased with it but yours is more clean ie no slats

Are there plans out there anywhere for the chair

I second the interest for these plans. The changes you made are nice improvements on an already good design. Nice work.

great chair. Looks great, and with the cushions and design mods it sounds really comfortable.
