Mitered joint with a double spline and tenon.

Are you speaking of the knee joints on the leading edge at floor level. If so, yes, that may well be and certainly would require mortising and splines, but I can't see that detail in the picture.

But where the side arm, and leg go down to the bent rocker at the bottom....that certainly looks like a butt joint between the main seat and the side arm/leg I just described. Do you have a more detailed drawing, cause if that really could support that much weight, that would be a fun project to build. It would just seem logical that side arm would be mortised into the chair frame for strength.
