"Wedding" chair

A friend found this chair in the street. I liked its squat sturdiness and the carved out heart on the back reminiscent of "Arts & Crafts".

The frame had to be completely stripped, stained and re-varnished.

The idea for the seat came from a wedding dress silk that I had. I wanted to create something light and ruffled up (like the shape of the crushed silk folds in the bride's skirt). I also wanted it to appear unfinished to accentuate the fraying qualities of the silk.

The chair is traditionally upholstered with coir.
