Think back to that never ending meeting you had to sit through on Monday in your conference room, you know the one where you almost fell asleep five times? While falling asleep is typically not acceptable during meetings, neither should having to fidget around trying to get comfortable in the cheap budget conference chairs that were purchased for your meeting room. Almost every business, no matter the size, has some sort of conference room or a place where meetings take place. All conference rooms require two essentials, a table to meet at and office chairs to sit in.
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.
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.
