    I think I want to do the left design but without the "arms" and back, instead with a back like the one on the right. If steaming and molding the back to be curved is too hard/expensive I'd be fine with it straight, though still with that oval shape. What I like about the design on the left is that the back legs are at an angle, and the seat allows the upholstery to hang over webbing.   Thoughts?

I want to commission a bespoke six-person dining table and chairs. I've contacted a few local carpenters/woodworkers. To me, the mid-century style is the ideal balance of expressive while still understated.   For the chairs, I want upholstery only on the seat, none on the back. No arms.      Example 1. This is decent, but perhaps a bit too simple, not expressive enough. I don't like the half moon back rest.     Example 2. The molded wood might be hard to do,...
Then you'll like this map of Iceland.     It doesn't make for as good of a pocket square though.
At least until Christmas. Maybe even 2014.
I got Akesson's (France) Brazil, Amano (Utah) Dos Rios, Al Nassma (Dubai) camel milk. I picked them all up from Chocolate Covered in San Francisco; haven't really found a shop I like in London yet.
