Helm Chair??

I've been looking for some sort of folding helm chair, one that will be comfortable enough to sit in for long passages but that can be folded up and moved easily when standing at the wheel. Has anyone seen a chair like this or plans to make something suitable? I've seen wooden arch type seats that span the cockpit but they are too bulky and take up too much room. I really don't want anything permanent there. Right now I use an aluminum folding ladder with a cushion which works out pretty well but, of course, it has no back or arm rests. It's easy to move it and stow it but there must be something better designed for sailboats.
