Dining Room Chairs :: Contemporary Steel Metal And Leather Upholstery - Dining Set Collection, Sculptural Furniture

Elegantly crafted from heavy gauge steel metal and upholstered in leather, these contemporary, eclectic dining chairs feature design elements relevant to the owners. Custom made as part of dining table and chair set.

Private Art Collection.

Each work of art is personally signed by Lisa Fedon.

I start out by hand-cutting individual pieces from heavy steel plate, tubing, flat bar, wire cloth, wire mesh, or whatever metal stock material I need for fabrication according to the design. Then I grind the rough edges, assemble the pieces together using my tig welder and incorporate other design elements, like found objects or other cut shapes of metal. The fabricated chair is then cleaned with salt & vinegar to start the metal oxidation process, and then placed outside exposed to the elements to develop its unique, naturally-acquired rust patina. After several days of oxidation, I wash and clean the piece with water, let it dry, and then hand-brush two coats of Penetrol - a metal sealing oil that dries hard to a rich glossy finish. I finish the process by adding the upholstered seat and back.

Each piece has its own rust patina character so no two items will be exactly alike.

Approximate cost as listed is per chair. Dining Table is additional.
