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.
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.
Much more thought should be put into desk chairs than table chairs. Employees who spend all day sitting at desks will need chairs that are comfortable and healthy. Before looking for chairs to purchase, do some research on ergonomically designed desk chairs. Much more information can be found on ergonomic office equipment, and it is important to familiarize yourself with the potential long term health problems caused by ill-fitting or poorly functioning office chairs.
