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.
Being practical (isn't that a nice word for cheap, or Scottish?), I have used whatever chair I had available in the house for my office chair. I've been doing that since 1985 when I started working at home. Being practical isn't always so practical, based on my discomfort and back problems.
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.
