curvy chair help

Hello all

 

I am taking a chair that i have and trying to make a 3d model of it on Inventor.

 

The  problem that i have is this has many riduclous curves and concaves. I wanted to know if their was such a tool that would help me with this, like a sculptor tool or something of that nature that will help me make a smooth 3D cuvry figure.

 

I attached pictures of the chair to this message if that helps.

That doesn't look so hard?

There are several curvy stuff tutorials in my signature.

You might start with the Vacuum.

Teaches you how to generate complex curved surface. 

With that knowledge you should then be able to create your chair (similar process used for the car seat I posted).
