The first plus is the bulk; such chairs are not as bulky or space-consuming as chairs with arms. This factor makes them the ideal choice especially in places where space comes at a premium. Such apartments or office spaces will benefit better from armless upholstered chairs than from normal padded chairs with arms. Another advantage is the simplicity these chairs represent. There is a unique simplistic elegance that is displayed by an armless padded chair. This is especially evident in swivel office chairs.
Lift chairs are a source of independence for people who have trouble rising from a sitting position. The chairs are motorized, and they rise slowly and tip forward slightly to allow the person to go from sitting to standing without having to lift their body weight. They are very useful in private homes, and in nursing homes to help the elderly or disabled have a degree of independence and to keep nursing assistants free to tackle more demanding tasks.
Why "allowable"? Well throughout history chairs have reflected the status of the person sitting on them. The size, decoration and sheer ornateness of the chair saying a lot about the person sitting in it. Indeed in classical times to the time of the pharaohs, the chair was reserved for the high and mighty, only kings, lords and bishops were allowed chairs at all, the rest of the populace had to do with sitting on chests, benches or stools.
