Woodworker: Greg Laird
According to Laird, “a lounger must follow the shape of the human body when in a relaxed position.” When he designed this chair, he combined this requirement with his appreciation for the Danish modern style. Laird used bent lamination for the curved back and base of the white oak lounge chair (23 in. wide by 80 in. long by 33 in. tall) and used a round carving file and card scraper to refine the radius of the inside corners of the base. When weaving the Danish cord seat, Laird thought the lounge chair took on a nautical feel, so he used sail canvas for the pillows. He finished the chair with wax.
