Folding chairs have been around for centuries and were most popular during the middle ages. Wood was the original material for these chairs which were used during the old days in various parts of the world such as ancient Egypt, Rome, Europe and Greece. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the folding chair grew even more popular and began to have arms and headrests in order to provide more comfort to its user. Since then, many variations of the chair have come up in the form of aluminum folding chairs, metal chairs and many more.
It all started in Central Park on June 22, 1901, when a group of people spotted rows of bright green rocking chairs along the park's mall, near the casino. Usually in this same spot, stood rows of uncomfortable wooden hard benches, so it was a pleasure indeed for the park-goes to sit and rock and enjoy the wondrous summer day.
When space-saving is necessary and when furniture needs to be easily stored when not in use, stacking chairs have proven to be an advantageous choice. With their small footprint and stackable design, these chairs are a popular choice for many businesses including hotels, schools, clubs, restaurants, universities, theaters, and auditoriums. They are also convenient, with their main benefit being that the chairs can easily be put out with their lightweight design; when they are not needed anymore, they can then be stacked and put away in a small space. Many stacking chairs have corresponding dollies and carts that allow for a place to quickly and conveniently stack the chairs when not in use. With the ability to quickly store the chairs, it allows for the space to be used again for other purposes or when cleaning is needed. There are many benefits to owning stacking chairs including their low price, sturdy construction, versatility, and comfort.
Rockers are made of several parts or components that contribute to its overall design and functionality. The curved pieces of wood are called rockers, and this serves as the main base of your rocking chair. Although rockers is also the term that is used to refer to a rocking chair, the term rocker for craftsmen refer to the curved wood fixed at the base of the legs of the rocking chair. These rockers must be made with utmost precision and care so that a soft, balanced rocking motion is achieved by the chair whenever it is set in motion. Many people, however, meet accidents with rockers as feet and toes can get easily crushed underneath them whenever the chair is in motion. Because of this, more modern rockers have springs that alleviate this concern. The backrests of the rocking chair function like the backrests of traditional chairs. The backrests of rocking chairs however, are designed to provide more comfortable back support. They have a slight bend or angle to more effectively catch a reclining posture. This is also to retain comfort even while the occupant is rocking back and forth with the rocking chair. The legs of a rocking chair functions like the legs of a regular chair, only that they are quite thicker and shorter because the legs are mounted to the rocker. Armrests are not always there, because some rocking chairs do not have armrests. Rocking chairs with armrests provide higher levels of comfort, though.
Chair sashes come in a variety of colors and fabric textures. You can also mix and match the chair covers with the chair ties as well. For a corporate dinner event, we used ivory linens and chair covers and then burgundy napkins and chair ties.
