After about four years of making do I broke down and bought a chair at one of those big box office stores. A high-back office chair looked so professional that I went with that style. I couldn't afford a leather chair like my dad had, so I went with a fabric-covered chair. I thought I'd really improved my seating arrangement. I had softened the seat, but I wasn't any more comfortable than I had been before. Sure I now had a swivel chair -- unlike any of my dining room chairs that I'd used, but the first one just didn't fit me. I have now been through more chairs I could almost start my own office chair store!
Nothing incites the general public more than someone trying to charge for something that was once free. Yet that's exactly what entrepreneur Oscar F. Spate tried to do in the New York City parks in the blistering summer of 1901.
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.
There are many different types of stacking chairs available each constructed with different materials, however they all have one thing in common, they have sturdy construction and most can even hold up to 250 lbs. They commonly come with steel or aluminum frames, further enhancing their quality construction and come in a variety of materials. Arguably, the most common stacking chair is constructed of plastic and can be found at many events including parties, weddings, orientations, and training seminars. Plastic stacking chairs are sturdy in construction and can hold up to the wear and tear of consistently being moved and stacked. There are also fabric stacking chairs that come with either a fully upholstered seat and back or one or the other. They are more comfortable to sit on, however be wary when stacking because the pressure put on the fabric can leave a permanent mark over time and the fabric can be ripped if stacked in a hurry.
Perhaps the greatest contribution stacking chairs have to offer is their versatility in both design and function. They have a lightweight design which allows them to be moved from one place to another with minimal effort and are small enough to fit in just about anywhere. Many stacking chairs are also designed for both indoor or outdoor usage, allowing the purchaser to get the most for their money whether they are needed for an indoor lunch one day or for an outdoor wedding the next. They are designed to be able to hold up to continuous moving and shifting with their rugged construction, although some materials are better than others for this. Not matter the size of the event, their small foot print allows for these chairs to accommodate more guests than other pieces of furniture would.
