bentwood progress

After a lot of TLC and elbow grease from a very patient friend of mine, these bentwood babies are finally coming together. Getting them structurally sound was one thing, but figuring out how to upholster them was another. After lots of problem solving, I have finally been able to do a mock up. Am pretty pleased with how they are looking and have been busy printing the finished designs.

I made the decision to use layered abstract shapes so that each chair could be a similar design but with a different composition and colour.

Using a template of the chair I was able to move it around the design to select a composition.

Finally, the fabric is stretched around foam and attached to the base. YAY

Am currently waiting for the wax to dry on the chairs before I can insert the cushions and see how they will look as a finished series. Will keep you posted!!
