First off, I understand your question is about plans and I’m not actually helping with a plans link. But with that being said, don’t sweat too much about the curves and angles. The trick is to make the angles consistent on the piece itself.

Front legs, cut the sides of the legs at 7 degrees.

Back leg front from seat to floor perpendicular to seat bottom. Back leg top taper back at 7 degrees. Curvature of back leg is whatever looks pleasing leaving minimum 1 1/2” inches of width at the top and bottom of the leg.

Seat sides cut at 7 degrees, front of seat corners cut to 1.5” radius, back of seat corners cut to 4” radius.

Make a full size mockup sketched out on posterboard, transfer to 1/4” MDF as patterns.

The problem with asking for a plans link is that it’ll be hit or miss on whether someone here actually sees this thread, recognizes the chair and knows where to find a plan for it. So the plans question is a little bit needle in a haystack.
