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.
A high chair usually consists of a frame of molded plastic or metal tubing and an attached seat with a safety belt and a footrest. There are still a few old-fashioned wooden high chairs out there with a removable tray or arms that lift the tray over a baby's head, although they aren't always as comfortable for babies as the modern, form-fitting models on the market now, and most of them aren't certified as meeting the latest safety standards. You'll also find a few hybrid units, which can double as a swing or convert into other types of gear, such as a chair for an older child or a play table.
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.
