New Project: I have a chair problem!

I need to confess that I have a chair problem... I have too many of them, and I can not resist bringing more of them home! If I see a bargain designer chair, I need to save it, because surely I would be the only person in the world who could appreciate it fully...
I recently scavenged my next project from a stranger living around the block from my house. Upside down, left outside to be rained on, was this irresistible silhouette...it was hopeless, I would have to stage a rescue.

Clearly Danish in design, and in an extremely dilapidated state, this will be quite a project.
I will re-build her as an armchair and she will be beautiful.

Here is something of a visionary goal (obviously not a rocker, but you might get the picture!); And here (from Doorsixteen)

Nice find!

Day-lab DIY just finished a similar project using Marimekko fabric: http://day-lab-diy.blogspot.com/2008/01/tuuli-chair-done.html

OOOH that Marimekko fabric is to die for! How fabulous, yes that is what I'm going for! I think a visit to Inside story could be in order. Thanks Sherpa!
