The arms of this armchair sweep down which means they don’t get in the way of your elbows if you are knitting a jumper, or doing other work.

The shape of the front leg follows the grain in the Ash tree. When the leading shoot of the young tree is eaten by a deer a side shoot takes over and creates this pattern. If you split the tree in half 25 years later and season it for a year you get a right leg and a left leg. There are 9 grown bends in this design, and 25 steam bent parts.
