The unquestionable form of Western armchair suddenly appeared in the mind of the creator and the creative process had to be focused on absorbing the most dominant features of the cowboy hat and the saddle rack to transform that simple, yet challenging, image into a functional Piece of Art.
The essential was highlighted after adjusting the proportions between memory and creative presence. The top of the armchair performs the concave hat with rounded tabs and the band around it turns into a comfortable cushion. The base in walnut approachesthe structure and color of the saddle rack.
Western armchair allows us to seat and take our time to think in how simple or complex our mind can be, depending on the interpretations that we choose to make. We are not defined by the world around us, but by what we do with what we are given.
