Working on a new chair design

I had the basic idea for a new dining chair design, but lots of things need to be worked out to finalize the concept before making anything that I would want someone to use.  First I made a chair out of black and red painted cardboard to work out some basic proportions.  I could sit in it to see how I liked the size.

Next I have made a prototype out of some Pine and upholstery materials, further developing some design details and enabling me to much better see how I like the seating comfort aspect as a dining chair.

I still need to make some design changes, particularly the front legs which seem rather stiff to me, but overall I am pleased with how the chair is turning out.  The seating is quite comfortable, upright enough for dining, but also relaxing.  I feel pretty confident at this stage to go on and make a chair that I can exhibit and hopefully someone will decide that they want to own and use it.  I hope to show a final chair in a later photo.
