To satisfy the demand for chairs that really catch the eye, there are different kinds of chairs in the market - office chairs, dining room chairs, lounge chairs, recliners, rocking chairs, folding chairs and so on. So, how do you choose the right chairs for your room? This simple guide to modern chairs should be of help.
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.
