All it needs is a dolphin-striker and a carved figure-head--and you're ready to go a-whaling

FWIW: Im unimpressed; thinking it looks like what it is - recycled salvage. If its as comfortable as it is attractive, it was also a waste of time.
I am happy for your satisfaction in it.
To each his own ...

That in and of itself impresses me.

We throw stuff out too easily when it can be reused or repurposed with just a little imagination or effort. That is what drives the throw away, disposable, materialistic society that we live in.

I would be proud to sit in your chair.
