Once that's done, you'll want to sand everything down for a smooth finish, before sealing it with a finish. Continue reading for the full instructions.

Rather than use traditional materials, a special type of resin was developed to harden fabric, which was then placed on a rigid mold to harden the fabric in place for structural integrity while retaining its soft appearance. No word yet on when / if this will hit stores. Continue reading to see how it was setup and for more information. Click here to view more cool and unusual chairs.
