Recliners: If you want to give your back a rest and enjoy some peace and quiet while reading a book, how about a nice leather recliner? A recliner is the epitome of luxurious living. When you select one, keep the space aspect in mind and see to it that the chair has clearance when someone sits on it.
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.
The church and the chair have an even deeper connection, as the word "chair" derives from the Latin "cathedra", the connection being the designation of a church that was the "seat" of a bishop as a cathedral.
