Back in 2015 I made a pair of TopGear inspired carseat armchairs for a client. Well just last week I delivered an updated version of the design. This time for a beloved seat from a Volvo 940, the chair features a laminated one piece armrest / rear leg. This gives a nice swept feel to the piece and a a sense of momentum.
Made from scottish elm with oak used for design details and pinstripes. Through wedged tenons have been used extensively to give a very strong frame with a decorative element. The arm and legs have been profiled on the router with a Queen Ann cutter to give a gentle radius to the edge. This gives a real tactile feel to the piece that adds to the overall comfort.
