24€ Chair

For my new apartment I needed furniture but as a student I couldn’t afford and find anything fancy with a good design. I decided to build an armchair by myself. In that time I had never worked with wood before so I started to research on the internet. I fell in love with the Bauhaus inspired 24 Euro chair tutorial by the architect Van Bo Le-Mentzel.

Because of my absolute lack of knowledge working with wood the first outcome of this chair was a disaster and it broke apart the first time I tried to sit on it. I started all over again. This time with more professional tools and solid wood. In the end all the effort was worth it. It turned out to be a comfortable armchair and I’m no longer scared to sit on it.

The result

Together with an Ikea sofa painted in the same calour, these two furniture pieces make a really good couple in my home.
