Hello there.,

Well i think you can start modeling with a cube, extrude the upper side in and delete it, then you can bridge the two borders with three or more edges. Repeat that with the cube's side, watch out for the tris, they can make the mesh look very weird.

I've tried this before posting and got a cool result using Maya.

Hope you can finish your model.

EDIT:

For the chair feet, you can use a cube too and use a bend deformer.

There is always many ways to solve a problem, and to model this is no exception.

But here is a great detailed step-by-step tutorial for making something like this.
Maybe this is not exactly what you're after, but it should at least give you an idea on how to model this, using the same techniques.

Hope it helps.

There was a speed modeling challenge over at 3DTotal awhile back for Rocking Chairs that may give some insight into various types of cushion/seating creations. I modeled the Verner Panton Relaxer which has similar characteristics to what you want to model:

Verner Panton Relaxer Render (http://forums.3dtotal.com/showpost.php?p=584358&postcount=60)

That was done by extruding a poly cube along a path and adding edges across, moving them inward to create the creasing in the cushion. The slats were made by duplicating via animated snapshot and and manually adjusting. Sort of the quick and dirty way. Anyway, here's a link to the whole thread:
