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.
Chairs are essential pieces of equipment in any home, office, or public setting. And even though chairs are sometimes viewed as "just a piece of equipment", it doesn't mean that it has to be tasteless and uncomfortable. On the contrary, chairs on the market today are functional, comfortable, and are very affordable.
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
This new phenomenon was covered extensively and very contentiously, in the following day's daily New York City newspapers. And the man on the hot seat was the president of the Park Commission - one George C. Clausen.
Stacking chairs are among the most affordable pieces of furniture available as they require minimal materials in their construction, are easy to make, and have a smaller size. They are also much simpler in design, not requiring advanced features that other pieces of furniture, such as multiple ergonomic adjustments that you'd find on an office chair or leather upholstery that may be desired on a couch. Because they are typically a bulk purchase rather than just buying one or two pieces, they are usually eligible for volume discounts which can even further lower the cost of the chair. Depending on the design of the chair or the purpose for which the chair is going to be used are two factors that can also affect the price. Plastic stacking chairs are generally among the cheapest in price and are great for outdoor events or when visitors will be spending a limited amount of time seated in the chair. Fabric, vinyl, and heavy-duty stacking chairs can be a little more costly as they take more time to produce and require the use of more expensive materials.
