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 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.
Chairs as you can imagine have a long history, for as long as there has been man (and woman) there has been the need to sit down on something comfortable, or as comfortable as was available, affordable and most importantly perhaps "allowable".
