A curve with a curve bevel object would produce this shape with lots of control.

The bevel object is the cutaway side view of a slice of the chair. The chair curve is the overall shape of the chair.

I just did this super quick but this should get you going in the right direction.

Its just a procedural wave texture. Of course you would want to add fresnel and glossy shader but hope this helps a little.

Just play with the color Ramp and Math node for different looks.

  • $\begingroup$ As far as I can see it, the waves are not circular, and instead of the roughness you probably want to modify the normals or the displacement - the waves are real bumps in the photo. Otherwise it is a great idea to do it with a procedural texture! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ibalazscs You are correct. I have corrected my node setup. $\endgroup$
