Making progress....now on to the dreaded upholstery details.

Try to make your seams at the corners rather than wrapped like a package. In other words cut the fabric like a cross and glue each corner together from the inside.

That does look more like it; I think I'd upholster a matching panel for the chair back.

This is what I ended up doing since I had no idea what the back looked like.

Thank you everyone for your kind words,tips and encouragement.  I want you to know it does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.  

As far as my next furniture piece...I’m not sure but I can tell you it won’t be a chair.  I need a little break from chairs and I want to concentrate on my house build for a bit.

Chests and tables with working drawers are lots of fun.

I have pondered doing an art deco styled desk with workable drawers.  I have not had a piece speak to me yet...

Another thread resurrected...the purpose is to share the sofa construction for the great-room in my current house build.  I wanted something modern and curvy.  Curvy can be a challenge when it comes to mini upholstery, so I thought I would break it down into sections.  Every upholstered chair or sofa/couch starts with a shell, mine is from plywood.
