The Morris Chair is iconic of the Arts and Crafts style. Derived from a Gustav Stickley design, the Morris chair is named after poet and designer William Morris, father of the English Arts and Crafts movement. Morris's workshop developed the concept of adjustable backrest recliners. My chair reclines to three back positions using removeable turned pins (see detail photo).
The beauty of the chair comes from it's architectural lines and structural form. Heavy members, with through mortise and tenon joinery, demonstrate integrity and quility. I make two versions, one with slope arms and another with flat arms. Both offer the same comfort and structural integrity the difference being in design complexity.
This one is made out of Bubinga.
