Free 3D Model: Coconut Chair by LuxXeon Free 3D Model: Coconut Chair by LuxXeon
The Nelson Coconut Lounge Chair is a classic icon introduced by designer George Nelson in 1955, and manufactured by the Herman Miller Furniture Co.  This detailed 3D reproduction consists of 100% quad topology, with 14,169 polygons, and 14,341 vertices. All elements carefully UV unwrapped, and come complete with PBR (physically based rendering) texture maps, for the cushion and base sub-elements.  The legs of the chair are also UV unwrapped, but do not require texture maps.  I recommend using a good procedural metal shader for the legs, and metallic elements.  Procedural maps can also be used in addition, or in place of, the provided texture maps.  I've also included high detail tangent normal maps, which I recommend using in place of standard bump mapping, for finer surface details.  All example renders were done in the Corona render engine for 3dsmax, using exactly the same textures provided with the model.

You are free to use or modify this model as you see fit, for your own rendering projects or scenes. As with all my freebies, the object can be used for both commercial and non-commercial renders. You may NOT, however, resell or redistribute the model or textures, or any derivative of them; individually, or as part of a package/set.

The 3dsmax file is compatible with 3dsmax 2012 or higher.  The modifier stack has been collapsed for compatibility, but you can simply bake the high poly cusions to a low poly proxy if you wish to use this asset in a game engine, or software which requires minimal geometry detail.

See WIP thread here:

Alternatively, you can also download this model from the following resource websites, including more preivew renders and wireframes:

Turbosquid.com
ShareCG.com

*** OBJ IMPORT INSTRUCTIONS: There are 3 different OBJ files associated with this model, and one MTL file, which defines the material definitions.  You will notice that two of the three OBJ files are labeled for use in specific software applications (Poser and Blender).  For best results, it's highly recommended that you import the correct file to the corresponding software application.

It does look like a piece of cocnut, complete with the meat and the shell... Just want to reach out to take it and make coconut milk with it... :rofl:  Well that's another one that I will add to my collection of furnitures...

Take a look at the newest render...
2 Gorillas And A  Coconut (Chair) by Shango-ThunderStones

It's based on a raunchy joke about a coconut and gorillas.  Hope I got the rendering ok. Was going for white velver and a metal backing which can't be seen in this rendering...
