Current vs. 20th Century Design Movement

For my main project I’m taking an old chair and refurbishing it with new aesthetics. My goal is to combine the minimal and vintage aesthetics and increase the functionality of the chair by potentially adding a drawer. Compared to other chairs with the 20th century design aesthetic, my piece will have a straight and rigid structure compared to the swirly curved aesthetics. My piece will also differentiate from 20th century designs with the vintage aesthetic. This will be accomplished by weathering down the wood.

I like how you are giving the chair a rigid and straight structure rather than making it curvy like lots of other chairs form the 20th century. Although lots of chairs from 20th century design were curvy, some were rigid and straight like those in the de stijl movement, maybe you can find some inspiration for your chair while looking into this aesthetic.

I really like the drawer idea Brandon! I think it would be cool if it opened from the side, that way you have easy access. Who knows what youll be able to store in there.
