Two other chairs

I designed a chair to fit under our kitchen table

The original design was based on a tripod or match sticks.

The final version was built in the workshop of a local carpenter.

 

 

Another restoration job was with two chairs we called the Jim Thompson chairs as they reminded us of the chair in the office of Jim Thompson in Bangkok.

They were a legacy from the family home in Leicester and in a poor state.

In this case someone else did the cane fretwork.
