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.
Another use for chair ties is weave them through the top back of the chair and then criss-cross them on along the back and down the chair to where the seat cushion is. This look takes a bit of time so be sure to build that into your timeline. In fact, unless you have practiced or have tied chairs at previous events, you should estimate at least a minute a chair for a basic knot or bow.
First you will need to decide how long you want to be able to use the chair. Some baby high chairs will fit a child that is not even able to sit up yet unassisted yet to a 1 year old. Like the Bumbo booster chair for example. It is a great chair for little ones because it supports your child almost like you were holding them. It curls around their legs and is cupped on the bottom to have a comfortable fit. Although this is a great baby booster seat, this chair will not be able to be used for long period of time. This chair does not have straps to connect it to a regular chair to insure that when your child starts to move around more they do not flip it over with them in it. So you will have to stay close at all times while your child is in this seat. Another example is the baby high chair; these chairs typically fit old children from 1 year and above. While these chairs are sturdy and can be used for a long period of time, putting a smaller child in them usually swallows them and is very uncomfortable at first. One of the final examples is the baby booster seat; this chair can be used from about 6 months old when a child typically can sit unassisted to 3+ years old. This chair can be used almost the entire time but it is typically flat chairs with little cushion or support on the side of the chair, but is still a great chair. You will just need to decide how long you want to be able to use this chair and if you want to purchase another when your child grows out of the chair.
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!
My first ergonomic chair had an interesting and promising design. I had two problems with it, though. The small issue was that the chair tilted me forward and I had to fight to keep the seat level -- I guess the base was too tall for me. But, the biggest issue was the smell. For the first two weeks I couldn't be in my office for more than two hours at a time because the smell would bother my sinuses so much. It surprised me the smell lasted so long, especially given that my office was in the yurt at the time, and the yurt has a good ventilation system (lovely way of saying the air exchange through and around the walls was active). Even after a week-long trip the smell overpowered me. Fortunately it didn't bother My Bigger Half's assistant, so he bought it from me for her to use (she got to graduate from one of my office chair experiments). So much for that ergonomic desk chair.
