Want to build a frame for an extra sectional piece to make a chair


I recently purchased a sectional couch with a removable inner piece. I have removed this extra piece so the couch can fit properly in the room, and now I have this extra chair-sized piece that I would like to use on its own as a chair. I would need to modify the piece before using it as a chair since currently the sides are armless and have visible metal plates where the piece could clip into the larger sectional unit.

I thought others may have done this before so it may be easy to find a frame kit online, but I've had no luck. I'm looking for advice on how would I go about creating a basic wood frame for this piece. I just want to add arms and maybe a simple back piece. Are there resources or examples anyone can share? Any advice would be appreciated!
