Build A Low Back Chair
It is my opinion that the famous Danish chair designer Hans Wegner and Sam Maloof perfected the entire genre of small dining or occasional chair designs with low back support. Maloof took the scale of Wegner’s low back chair designs and made them fluid with contemporary lines that flow beautifully. At first this chair did not interest my since of design, it grew on me until I recognize it as one of Maloof’s greatest achievments.

Several years ago, I was interviewing former President Jimmy Carter for a Highland Woodworker Show. He handed me a the Low Back Chair that Sam Maloof made for him when he won the Nobel Peace Prize. I discovered how small the chair actually can be. I had been building the chair with a 22″ deep seat and saw that at 20″ it was everything that it needed to be. When you build the chair make the change to the 20″ seat. It will make you smile!
