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.
It seemed that a few days earlier, Clausen had been visited in his official Park Commission office by a man named Oscar F. Spate. Spate seemed amiable enough, and he offered Clausen a proposition Clausen saw no difficulty in accepting. It seemed that Spate said he wanted to place comfortable rocking chairs in the parks throughout New York City. And for the privilege of doing so, Spate offered the city the tidy sum of $500 a year.

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.
Second item you will need to consider when purchasing a chair is space that is available in your home. Some booster seats can attach right to your already kitchen chairs and others will need its own space at the table. If you have a small dining room than typically you will want a booster chair that can fit in one of your chairs already. If you have room or don't have any extra dining room table chairs that are available consider a baby high chair. Both are great but it all depends on what you have to work with.
