Morris Chair

1998 – 40”h x 42”d x 36″w

Black Walnut, White Oak, Fabric


This design is a curvaceous interpretation of a Morris chair from the Arts & Crafts era.  Bent white oak slats provide a bridge between sensual curves and geometrical patterns. Traditional mortise and tenon joinery guarantee the longevity of the leg sections while the bottom and back sections disassemble for easy transportation. A full-scale model ensured that the chair would be comfortable, yet energizing.  Sculpted from walnut many years ago, its color has aged to a rich golden brown.  In general, dark woods will lighten and light woods will darken over time and exposure to light.  This was made for myself, so I also produced a matching couch.
