chairs are the hardest furniture to make well. much is demanded of a chair, and they take the most abuse. they are also our most intimate furniture (besides, perhaps, the bed and the coffin). the chair forms the spacial underpinnings of a human body, and as such a symbolic approximation of a a desired state. therefor it also serves as a portrait of the maker, or at least what she or he hopes, perhaps, to be and feel.
