A knockoff of sixties-style "egg" or "womb" chairs, this recliner was made from the shell of an old wheelbarrow. I got the idea when I was working construction, and some of my fellow workers would tip a wheelbarrow forward onto its handles, wheel-end in the air, and use it as a chair. I tried it, and it's surprisingly comfortable just like that. However, a wheelbarrow won't stay balanced like that, so I redesigned the concept with new legs and a plush, upholstered interior. The cushions are corduroy, with neodynium magnets holding them in place so they can be removed for cleaning. An earlier prototype can be seen on my flickr page here
This thing is crazy comfortable, like a big, inhabitable shell that is soft on the inside. Pretty cheap to make, though the end product is a little heavy and bulky.
