I saw this item at the International Home Furnishings Market
I thought the design was unique, the lines were pleasing. It was highly finished in powdercoat, and had a number of bullet holes in the backrest ! It looked like it had been strafed by a ME109 over Germany . Well, I had to try it out, I had concerns about how comfortable a steel drum could be. To my surprise, it was very comfortable. The seat portion was upholstered in marine grade vinyl over a rather stiff foam cushion. The backrest was curved in such a manner as to support the natural curve of the low back, and gave good support. All in all, I think the designer / builder of this piece has hit the mark !
