A continuing trend in modern furniture design has been the sacrificing of comfort for economy and space. While agreeing that those huge Victorian armchairs were really luxurious, designers today would argue that they would be very much out of place in a modern house, as well as being inordinately expensive. So, designers concentrate on producing chairs which can easily be mass produced and which fit contemporary tastes. Unfortunately of course, the result of such thinking is that most chairs manufactured now tend to merely ornament a room without being very comfortable.
Many of the armchairs don't do that and many have seats at the wrong angle. Making it completely uncomfortable to sit in. However, a few manufacturers seem to take comfort, style and size into consideration. And from these few, it's possible to choose some that are not only suitable sized armchairs for small spaces but ones that evince plenty of real style as well.
Now cut the slots in the side panels. There are two on each: one houses the back panel and the other houses the seat panel. Make the slot for the seat panel first. This slot, which is 16mm wide, runs at angle, from a point about halfway down the front edge, to a point 368mm from the front edge. To mark it in exactly, first draw a point on the front, short edge, 267mm from the top long edge. With a protractor set at 86° mark in the angle at which the seat panel meets the front edge of the side panel. Then use the two marked points to draw in a line extending 368mm from the front short edge of the side panel. This line marks the proposed location of the upper surface of the seat panel. To mark out the correct width of the slot, draw another point 16mm from that already marked on the front short edge of the side panel and, with the aid of a protractor, draw another line parallel to the first and 16mm from it.
Provided both side panels have been cut to exactly the same size, there is no reason why you should not clamp them together with all edges flush and cut out paired slots at the same time.
It is possible to have cushions made up for you by professionals, but they are easy to make yourself from rubber and the covering of your choice.
This chair has a very simple construction. It consists simply of four panels which slot together to give a stable assembly. Despite its simplicity, its lines are as stylish as any manufactured chair and will complement any living room.
