Chair without pipe

Vincent's Chair with his pipe' (1888) must be one of my favourite Van Gogh Paintings.
My version does not have a pipe. But I remember once having a 'vision' of a chair which somehow represented completeness and stability. I subsequently wrote a paper called the Broken Chair all about a consultancy I was involved in Gujranwala Pakistan about broken trust, symbolised by a broken chair leg. for me it has come to represent key values:
Rugged simplicity,
Open honesty,
Firm humility
support and trust
