This is my signature Arbor Bow Arm Morris Chair that is now going to be offered in Sapele. Having built traditional Morris Chairs in the past ,this Morris Chair was designed to blend arts and craft with more of an art feel.

Awesome piece Brian. Really like the sapele. The upholstery looks good and really compliments the fine woodworking. The tree branches are really distinctive to me.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

I’ll say fine furniture. Great looking furniture that will certainly wear well and take on that warmth of wear patterns and color changes.
