Rattan is the most common kind of wicker that is used to make most of the wicker furniture including dining chairs. It is a fibrous material obtained from a plant similar to palm. Rattan is quite strong, flexible and very resistant to cracking and breaking. Stain, paint or varnish can be easily applied to furniture made from rattan. Furniture made from rattan can be easily painted in different colors to match your home décor. Among the strongest of the different types of wicker, rattan is commonly used to make dining chairs, dining tables, sofas, divans and other furniture.
Suddenly, two broad-shouldered men approached the rocking-chair sitters. They wore identical gray suits and they carried black satchels with straps over their shoulders. The men in gray told the sitters that these were private chairs for rent, and that if they wanted to continue sitting they had to fork over five cents a day for the better seats, and three cents a day for seats that were not in as preferential a position in the park. Some people vacated their seats, but others paid. People who did neither were physically ejected from the seats. When they asked why, the men in gray said, "Them's Mr. Spate's chairs
You'll want a stable, sturdy model that can stand up to spilling, kicking, and regular cleaning for at least a year (some babies can't bear to sit in a high chair after that). A chair with a tray that can be released with one hand is also a plus. Picture your baby occupying your other arm while you're opening and closing the tray; it's just one of the many physical feats you'll be asked to master as a parent.
Although most people typically associate cheaper prices with cheaper products, this does not hold true in the case of stacking chairs. While they are less in price than most other pieces of furniture, the need for a comfortable surface to sit on is not comprised in the design. Many come with a curved back rest with built-in lumbar support and a waterfall seat edge. For most guests that will be sitting in your chairs, this will be sufficient enough to provide them with enough support and a comfortable sitting experience for a few hours at a time. If your guests will be spending multiple hours at a time seated in your stacking chairs, it may be worth the investment to purchase stacking chairs with a padded seat(fabric, vinyl, or leather). Some more expensive stacking chairs even come with an adjustable lumbar support to properly position where the support will be needed specific to the individual's back and armrests.
I'd loved the Aeron chairs for years. They are ergonomic, in multiple sizes to fit any stature, and made of recycled materials that could be recycled at the end of the chairs' long life, but the price kept me away. After listening to several of my friends rave about their Aeron chairs it was finally time for me to give in to comfort. Herman Miller makes Aeron, and have they put thought into their creation!
