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.
Use a tenon saw to cut the slot, following the rules on correct sawing techniques given in most DIY manuals. If you cut exactly to the marked lines, you will make the slot slightly too wide. Instead, position the saw so that one face is just inside and parallel to the line. When you have cut down the lines, cut out the short edge of the slot with a jig saw or chisel.
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.
There is a danger that this chair might end up being used as an incredibly luxurious shoe fitting point, however. If you don't think anyone in your family is likely to actually read under the stairs, the armchair may end up being more decorative than functional - which might not be a problem for you, depending on your circumstances.
Now mark and cut out the slots which house the back panel. These are 165mm long, 13mm wide, and run at an angel of 82° to the top edges of the side panels. Use the methods detailed above to mark and cut them accurately.
A vacant space under a set of stairs can easily be transformed into a reading area with the addition of an armchair, and little else. It's a simple, cost-effective change - no shelving, carpeting and so on necessary. You just need to fit in with the colour scheme of your hall.
