Sculpted Lounge Chair – “Fresno”
Black Walnut with Hand-Rubbed Oil Finish and Fabric
26″ x 30.5″ x 30″
Inspired by the recent interest in mid-century modern styling, the Fresno lounge chair combines the seamless look of sculpted pieces with shaping reminiscent of the early Danish designers. The front and rear legs are both “canted” outwards exaggerating the chair’s wide stance and solid feel but significantly complicating joinery between the two side assemblies. Live mortise and tenon joinery is used throughout the piece. Both seat and back are constructed as plywood laminations over a form in a vacuum press, and upholstery foam is carefully sculpted to create a cantilevered look along the front edge.
Price to reproduce as shown, $2,250. Upholstery substitutions are possible – please contact the studio for details.
