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.
For chairs used to sit at tables in meetings, you can typically save on expenses and purchase cheaper, less elaborate chairs than you would use for desks. This is because employees will not be sitting in the chairs for long and likely will not need to type in the chairs or perform too many functions while sitting down. Although you want your employees to be comfortable, you usually will not need to put as much time into thinking about purchasing table chairs as you will desk chairs. Do make sure that the chairs are wide enough for most adults and that the backs come up high enough to offer support. Depending on the cost and the function of the chairs, you may or may not want to offer arm rests.
These size designations have more to do with the chair user's height than weight. However, if a shorter chair user requires a wider seat or extra lifting capacity, wide chairs come in their own versions of Small, Medium, and Large, etc. That way someone who is short, but who weighs a lot will have a chair that fits more comfortably than a traditional sized lift chair made for someone much taller.
