In the past, a chair was just that - a place where you would rest your aching back. Designs were straightforward and simple and you would be foolish to expect anything more from chairs. These days, however, chairs have become art in themselves. Some pieces are so cleverly made that they look like objects of art but double up as comfortable chairs too.
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.
Lift chairs are available with two, three, or infinite positioning options. The fewer the positioning options, the less expensive the chair. If a person has no need for a chair that fully reclines or doesn't plan to sleep in the chair, then a two or three position chair will save money over an infinite position chair. The chairs with an infinite number of positions from which it can rise are the most expensive, usually starting at around $1,000.00. But their flexibility is for many people more than just a luxury. Many of these chairs can be positioned with the feet elevated above heart level, which is helpful to some medical conditions.
