Morris Chair Plans
Build a Recliner from Stickley's 1910 Plans
This model is given in response to a number of requests for a Morris chair that could be made at home. The construction is very simple. The sides are put together first, then the front and back seat rails. The seat frame is pierced with holes placed about an inch apart, and through these is to be woven cane or heavy cord to afford a firm and elastic support for the seat cushion. Either one is satisfactory, but the cane will be found more durable. The seat pillow should be from four to five inches thick; the back pillow from five to six inches thick and high enough to cover the top slat in the back. [Gustav Stickley, 1906]
A very interesting aspect of this design is the interrupted pattern of the side slats that is not seen on modern Stickley recliners like the #369, which tend to have full height slats.
