A Chair Creating A Space For People And Pet
With A Harmonious Atmosphere
Nowadays more people have pets and value them a lot.

The main support of the chair is made of galvanized iron which is made into a 10mm-radius bar. After joining each bar, the semi-finished good was painted and solidified. The main material for the cushion is velvet, I cut the cloth into long strips and put the cotton into them to make it softer. After finishing all the strips, I made them intersect with each other to build a stronger structure.
