interlocking chair in salvaged maple plywood
In Hohl Home Furnishings woodwork studio, piles of scrap plywood are commonplace and soon find themselves in the garbage dumpster. It begs the question -- “how can we transform these small scraps, not useful for most other projects, into something of long-lasting beauty?” The result is the Carmine Chair. Carmine is wide in the shoulder and narrow in the waist; strong and handsome; highly effective with a no-nonsense attitude. Unexpectedly easy to cozy up to, Scott created the chair from salvaged maple plywood. The chair is simple, strong, visually striking and comfortable.
Toma Clark Haines is The Antiques Diva® - owner of Europe’s largest antiques touring and sourcing company. For her “Take a Seat” chair-ity donation Toma went classic French donating a period piece from circa 1760! This Louis XV Rococo Upholstered Beechwood Fauteuil is older than America! Choosing not to embellish it too much, Toma Clark Haines explains this chair is Classic, Elegant and Traditional!
