That should work just fine.I use it everyday. Could you be missing it? After creating the shape try hiding your chair object to see if you are just missing it. A lot of times the spline blends right into the object and you cant see it. Also, after creating the spline shape your current selection remains the chair. You have to deselect the your object and then select the spline.

Good Luck!
