This Maloof inspired rocking chair was constructed with Walnut that had some truly unique characteristics. Most notably is the matching sapwood with black streaking featured at the top of the back legs. To achieve this matching, the back legs were cut tip to tip from the same piece of stock and carefully reconstructed to ensure a matched look. The figure on the arms, also from the same board, is quite beautiful as well. The flexible back braces provide a pleasing contrast thanks to the use of beautiful Zebrawood from Central Africa- a great accent to walnut.
