Have a seat

Lately, I've been attracted to chairs. All kinds of chairs, but especially chairs and other seating with some interesting curves. The ones shown here are my latest models. In the foreground is a French Art Deco armchair with circular arms by Jacques Adnet; to the right is a French settee from about 1870. In the background, from left to right: A Swedish Empire armchair from the early 19th century; a pair of French armchairs, or bergeres, from the mid-19th century; and a Scandinavian Modern armchair by the designer Nanna Ditzel.
Enjoy.

Thank you, sir. The settee was the easiest to model. The Scandinavian Modern, the hardest; no right angles anywhere.

Thank you, gentlemen. Everything old really is new again. I wouldn't mind decorating my house with any of these seats. If only I could afford them. I can barely afford Ikea--even if I bring my own Allen wrench.

Speaking of Ikea, I modeled this chair a couple of years ago. It's early Ikea, designed by Verner Panton. It's called the "Vilbert" chair, and only about 4000 were ever made. Yes, that's an Allen wrench between the two rows of seats.
Enjoy.

... with all the quality and beauty - both: of the chairs themselves and especially of your constantly work here - you have not forgotten this little nice Ikea inbus-key(?) detail :) Interesting: I have never heard about these unusual Ikea chairs so far ... I really appreciate your work!

A weakness for chairs is much better than weak chairs.
