Maloof Inspired Low-Back Chair



Made by Wayne Watling

The plans were produced by Charles Brock and purchased at Lee Valley. They gave him just enough direction, while leaving a bit of room for adding his own personal style to the chairs. Wayne has always been drawn to Maloof’s work saying “The sensual and organic flow of the Maloof design left an impression on me from my very first glimpse of his work. I knew I had to build one of Maloof's pieces and the need for a new dining setting presented the perfect opportunity.” Good luck with the last five chairs, Wayne!
