This amazing video by Chester, one of my favorite Youtube creators, takes us through the process of making a chaise lounge. A chaise lounge is such a glamorous piece of old-world furniture and Chester makes this beautiful piece come to life right before your eyes. This video is an inspiration to all future furniture makers, there is nothing more beautiful than a handmade piece of furniture. This chaise lounge is made in the chesterfield style and hand-tufted in exquisite detail.
In this video, you will see just how Chester conceptualizes this dream and brings it into stunning reality. He starts by building a frame and installing his webbing for support and then just keeps building on the chaise, focusing his attention on every detail. I was so amazed when Chester began to hand tuft the chesterfield chaise lounge, because I never could have even imagined how that was done. The actual foam has drilled holes in it to guide where the buttons go, I never knew any of this!
When Chester puts the final touches on this work of art, I just sat there in jaw-dropping awe. This is a dream piece of furniture and I would love to have one like it in my home someday.
This video was an absolute joy to watch and it makes me feel so hopeful that there is a new generation of artisans who love well-made things as much as I do.
