Assymetrical Chairs

Figured cherry veneers and solids, figured anigre veneers, wenge, stainless steel rope, aluminium "These are some of my favorite chairs, and are as comfortable as they are whimsical. The stainless steel rope cradles the small of the back, even though it looks like it might cut you like an egg slicer. My engineer friend Keith Komline helped me figure out how to attach the stainless to the seats."
